Before submitting anything to us, keep this in mind:

- We are an extremely fast paced, intense environment
- It is fun to work here, especially for music fans

More after the jump.

About Us
Warner Bros. Records is the largest record company in the market. We work with artists spanning from indie acts like The Subways to mega-acts like R.E.M. and Green Day. In between we have The Flaming Lips, Avenged Sevenfold, My Chemical Romance, etc. The New Media department here is innovative, fun, busy and future-forward. We are a perpetual beta shop (meaning Web 2.0 and all that stuff), essentially. Don't let the whole "record company" thing fool you. We didn't rootkit our CD's!

We are seeking an experienced Internet developer. The job requires a dedicated and professional self-starter who will thrive in an environment that is fast paced. It is a full time position, with benefits. Salary is commensurate with experience. We are located in the heart of Burbank, CA’s media-hub near NBC, ABC, Warner Bros. Studio and Disney.
