About us


Linkfire was founded as a response to the increasingly complex nature of digital music marketing. Listeners the world over are streaming through different services—so how do you connect to all of them at once, simply and smartly?


Our technology links fans directly to the content they love in their favorite app. At the same time, we empower everyone from major labels to independent artists with unparalleled audience insights.

We’re headquartered in Copenhagen, with offices in NYC, LA and Lisbon. Every day we help artists we adore to realize their potential through the power of music data.


Underpinning our culture is collaborative, agile processes, and something we like to call the ‘Nordic spirit.’ It means working together with transparency, respect, and honesty. And that goes for the way we do business, too.


How we work


Music has the unique power to unite us all. It transcends cultures, languages, and borders.

Every day, we help artists from around the world connect with their fans, and we’re immensely proud to count such a diverse range of creators as our users. We embrace this diversity inside our offices too. At Linkfire, we want you to find a place to belong, and feel encouraged to be your authentic self.
