Every day, hundreds of millions of people all over the world use the products we build which include destinations like “Home” and “Search” as well as original playlists such as “Discover Weekly” and “Daily Mix.” We’re a team of technologists, product insight experts, designers, and product managers in Boston, New York, Stockholm and London.

We are looking for a passionate and seasoned product leader to join Spotify’s Personalization group.

  • Bring systems thinking to our approach for building and measuring the listening experiences that drive a significant percentage of listening on Spotify.
  • Lead cross-functional efforts to ensure our two-sided marketplace delights users and supports a vibrant creator ecosystem.
  • Advocate and promote the incorporation of machine learning techniques and technologies to expand and improve on our core datasets.

  • Manage, inspire, and grow the existing product organization and squads.
  • Partner closely with your product area counterpart in engineering.
  • Work from our Boston office, with frequent collaboration and travel to our NYC and Stockholm offices. Travel occasionally to offices in our global markets.

Who you are

  • You have experience managing Product Managers and a portfolio of multiple products and teams.
  • You are a compelling storyteller with experience communicating concepts and ideas to engineers and creatives alike.
  • You are comfortable sorting out ambiguity and can bring clarity of purpose. You know where to start and how to run the right tests to validate your hypotheses.
  • You have good instincts but match that with deep analytical thinking to focus on the things that matter most, especially with expertise in large amounts of data.
  • You have a strong interest in music, radio and/or podcasts and the systems and capabilities required to program them.
  • You have a proven ability to influence decision-making at all levels within an organisation and in a variety of contexts.

We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination.
