Octave Group – Why Work With Us?


Octave Group was created in 2017 when two music industry leaders—TouchTunes and PlayNetwork—joined forces to form a new company with greatly expanded global scale and capabilities. With expertise in crowd-sourced music experiences, licensing, technology and brand-aligned music programming for shared spaces, Octave Group has become a pioneer in using music and media to transform the way people interact with each other.

Since its launch, Octave Group has created and delivered innovations in music experiences worldwide for every type of shared space, from independent restaurants and bars to internationally recognized consumer brands with hundreds of stores. Our reach is broad and deep, from family-owned businesses in America’s heartland to Fortune 500 companies. In addition to inventing unique music systems and mobile technology, we have brought one-of-a-kind music programming to public spaces where people seek enjoyment in their daily lives through shopping, eating, traveling, and sharing those experiences with family and friends.​

    Fairly easy. Had an initial phone call with a recruiter, then came in office and had back to back interviews with 4 individuals in upper management. Finally, I had a phone call with a few members from corporate.
