Back in January I joined Rdio -- they'd heard through the grapevine that I was looking for new work post-EMI, and I'd heard through the grapevine that they needed PM help. I've been loving it ever since, as it's exactly what I wanted to be doing:
- work on an ambitious project with a small, brilliant, passionate team
- be part of an early-stage, funded startup
- use my natural skills, but also be learning new things
- have lots of responsibility, but with plenty of room for growth (and reward)
Rdio is a new music service from some of the folks who made Skype happen. For just $10/month, which is like, the price of an album, you get unlimited access to listen to music on your computer, iPhone/Pad/Pod-touch, BlackBerry or (soon) Android device. And it's got social-ness built in, so discovering new music is as simple as clicking a play button. The site in its current incarnation barely scratches the surface of what we have planned, so this is just the beginning.
