What will I be doing?

Joining a team of seasoned professionals, you’ll be a Royalties Analyst at a company with one of the largest collections of content on the planet.

You’ll develop important skills and leverage skills in Excel and data analysis on your way to growing your career within a market-leading company.

• Interpret royalty agreements, understanding the terms, conditions and calculations necessary for timely payments and customer service.

• Assist in posting general ledger entries for the Royalty department.

This job may not be a fit if...
