Here at Jukedeck, music is at the heart of our team. Each one of us is is either a composer, instrumentalist, singer, producer or DJ – some even claim to be all five!
We talk, play and share music; if you ever swing by our office, you’re likely to find someone playing the piano or mucking around on the drum machine.
Above all, we’re always learning from each other, so it’s great when fresh talent joins the team. And in the past few months we’ve welcomed a host of new faces, all of whom add something exciting to the mix. Take a moment to meet them.
