Product Owner for Music Courses - Muse Group
Muse Group is a music technology company that develops content apps and web platforms. All designed to support online communities, providing sheet music, audio and guitar tablature, audio editing, music education and music notation software. We currently reach over 400 million users worldwide through our portfolio of Ultimate Guitar, MuseScore, Audacity, StaffPad, and more.

Our primary mission is to serve musicians at all skill levels by providing them with free resources and creation tools. We advocate the values of inclusivity, accessibility, and rewarding talent and we believe all creatives are true pioneers.

We provide opportunities for creative expression for all, based on true talent and passion for music; rather than on the basis of accessibility of, or the ability to, afford music creation tools.

The company has 7 products (verticals) and ecosystem directions (horizontals) - Monetization, Marketing, Content, ML, Operations, and others that help each product and business as a whole to develop and grow. We also plan to increase the number of products in our portfolio and expand into new markets and user segments.

We’re constantly evolving therefore after months of research and user feedback we’re launching a new strand - educational courses for musicians. This will give all of our users access to our catalogue of video courses on music theory and how to play different instruments.

Our courses are proving popular hence the exciting move in this direction. Users can learn to play a plethora of instruments by taking our courses, practice freely, and share their results through our platform.
