The Matchstiq Top 100

Matchstiq's take on Melodics

Melodics Mission is to create a world that plays.

The market opportunity ahead for melodics

Over 1 Billion people have had music lessons at some point in their lives. 90% give up within 4 months. Why? They don’t feel like they’re improving, so they give up on practice.

There are 285 million practising and aspiring musicians in the world. 100 million new musicians enter the market every year. But
90m leave. Melodics customers stick with their practice 3x more than traditional music education.

Why is Melodics a great place to work?

  • Working in a positive, fast-moving, and motivating environment, solving interesting and meaningful problems around music and education.
  • We truly value innovation and growth. Each of our employees has a dedicated professional development budget - we have a number of in-house development programmes that most of our employees spend that budget on.
  • We’re a friendly and smart team – we listen to each other’s ideas and give everyone a voice to influence and shape the future of Melodics.
  • We want you to work in the best way that you can and have a documented flexible working policy.
  • We have a documented Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strategy, have taken our full team through an ally skills workshop, and have taken other meaningful actions in this area.
  • We value the wellbeing of our team – we have mental health and physical health First Aid-ers, we've replaced traditional 'sick leave' with uncapped wellness leave from day one of your employment, and a 'winter wellness' bonus payment.
  • An array of musical instruments you can borrow and play! (And office jams)

  • Organising keys & computers for new starters, including software set up (email, Trello, slack etc), working with Managers to make sure that they have access to all the right systems.
  • You help our new starters get oriented in the office during their first week - show them how to use the alarm, how to use the coffee machine, where all the snacks are kept, stationary cupboard etc.
