Product Manager Monetisation
XITE aims to offer the best music video experience in the world. Founded in the Netherlands, XITE now reaches 100 million households across Europe and North America through linear networks, interactive TV apps, and on-demand streaming services.
The company revolutionized the way audiences experience music videos by allowing viewers to search, like, and skip through its entire catalog, enjoy channels curated by its team of music experts and create their own channel based on a genre, decade style and mood using its unique Mixer feature. XITE has a full music video catalog through agreements with all major and top independent music labels and distributors.
