Play MPE

May 7, 2020

Working at Play MPE is a lot of fun, for a lot of reasons – namely, the music industry is exciting in and of itself!  We also have an amazing team of smart, driven and kind people – and well, we love what we do.

What do we do? Well, we make it possible for the music industry to connect and collaborate from a single platform. Music and tech goodness. 

We also have a lot of fun while making this happen. We build collaborative playlists, do activities together (albeit via laptops as of late), share recipes,  have guacamole contests… 

With music in mind (it always is) – we thought it would be fun to share some of our favourites with you. Play MPE staff answered some questions about their musical tastes – check it out!
