We at Spotify have built the leading platform through which users experience the work of artists, and we’re passionately creating products and services that enable those creators to thrive. As a leader for our Marketplace Commercialization team, you will develop products that help creators make a living, promote their work on the platform and allow artists at all stages of their careers have greater impact with their art.

  • You will be based in New York, but travel to Stockholm and London occasionally.

Who you are

  • You are passionate about technology and what it can do for the creative industry.
  • You thrive when developing great people, not just great products.
  • You have a broad engineering background and have deep experience in complex, high performance systems, preferably in adtech.
  • You are well-versed in data-driven and data-informed product development.
  • You have real-world experience scaling up and managing engineering teams and have operated successfully as a “leader of leaders.”

We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination.
