A day in the life
You will serve as primary legal support for the Amazon Music business. Our work is intellectually challenging, exciting and fast-paced.

Next to working on new initiatives, you will work as the lead lawyer on strategic projects, providing day-to-day advice to the business in a wide range of legal areas, notably content licensing, marketing, and regulatory compliance. You will directly work with the business to take the lead in structuring, drafting and negotiating licenses and commercial agreements with external partners.

About the team
We pride ourselves in facilitating progress and delivering results. We see the big picture, and we obsess over customers. We run to the problem, never away from it. We like to build things and solve problems. We enjoy the camaraderie of working together as a legal team, and with our brilliant and creative business partners. We operate with the highest level of integrity and value character as much as intelligence.
