Bandcamp is a global music community where fans discover great music and directly support the artists who make it. We believe that music is an indispensable part of culture, and for that culture to thrive, artists must be compensated fairly and transparently for their work. Artists have earned over half a billion dollars on Bandcamp.
Our team of 70+ people is sprinkled throughout the world, crossing multiple time zones and sharing a desire to help artists connect with their fans and earn a living from their craft. Many of us are musicians, all of us are fans, and we see how our work helps artists every day. Whether that’s by knowing that artists have earned over half a billion dollars on Bandcamp or by reading the blush-worthy missives artists and fans send us.
We use one guiding principle to decide what to build, write about, design and support: will this help an artist connect with fans and put money in the artist’s pocket?
From the start (that’s 12 years now), we’ve been a distributed company, working in small teams where people often live in different time zones. We value the flexibility and independence each of us has to set up our own work environments and schedules, while overlapping for several hours each day so we can meet and make decisions.
We welcome and celebrate all manner of variance in ethnicity, race, culture, gender, and sexual orientation, among artists and our staff.
