Helping Ableton deliver music to the world

Ableton make unique software and hardware for music creation and performance. Its products enable a community of users to create amazing things.

Ableton is one of those cool companies that most people in the industry can only dream of landing a job with, but that doesn’t make it any easier to find the diverse talent they are striving for. Most of their roles require a strong blend of technical expertise, industry understanding and music interface knowledge. In addition, the roles won’t appeal to all engineers as they will be working on a legacy product with little scope for learning new languages.

The music tech industry is still a long way from catching up when it comes to diversity, equity and inclusion. As an industry pioneer, Ableton is doing all it can to push for better opportunities for all and we are helping them with this mission…

Taking a Campaign based approach

Ableton needed a powerful campaign to attract the hard-to-find talent they were looking for. A retained fee project was the best route for each role, which ensured the team were able to dedicate their time solely to Ableton. The campaign was underpinned by a tailored strategy for each role to understand and engage with the candidate markets in ways that would attract diverse, experienced individuals who would be an excellent addition to the Ableton team.

Being a brand ambassador for Ableton in communities of talent that are typically under-represented in the industry is at the core of our DE&I strategy. To support this, we have consulted on inclusivity in their EVP and recruitment process, invested in specialist job boards for diverse talent, designed campaigns that put under-represented people at the forefront and introduced operational changes to remove unconscious bias during the hiring process.
