As SoundCloud launches its SoundCloud Go subscription service in Ireland and the UK, we talk to the company’s international VP Sonia Flynn.

We caught up with Berlin-based SoundCloud’s international VP Sonia Flynn, who previously managed Facebook’s rapid growth in Dublin.

SoundCloud will be rolling out its new subscription service, SoundCloud Go, to the UK and Ireland on 3 May.

Initially launched in the US last month, the subscription service offers an additional layer of music and intuitive supporting features, created to complement and enhance the existing SoundCloud experience for listeners, according to the company.

Previously, Flynn was also part of the management team that established Google in Ireland.

SoundCloud is a platform for musicians and podcasters who want to share audio across devices, websites and social media platforms, and achieve maximum impact.

Sound designer Alex Ljung and artist Eric Wahlforss founded the Berlin-headquartered company in 2007 to enable musicians to share audio.
