  • Partner with our most strategic advertiser and agency partners on research and ad effectiveness execution
  • Develop and execute against vertical-specific measurement strategies
  • Work cross-functionally with Marketing, Sales, and Product to evaluate and onboard new measurement partners and custom research projects based on industry needs

  • Track the performance and impact of measurement capabilities, making product optimization and partnership recommendations
  • Partner with internal stakeholders and clients regarding training and product consultation as needed
  • Lead measurement vendor relationships
  • We’re an ever-evolving team – responsibilities may shift over time and there is a huge opportunity to drive impact within Spotify!

Who You Are

  • 6-10 years in advertising research – at a research vendor, media owner, advertiser or agency partner – with at least 4 of those years working in digital advertising
  • A successful track record of evaluating and on-boarding digital measurement solutions and products from beginning to end
  • Experience working with Product teams to bring new products and capabilities to life at a technology company
  • Strong background in quantitative advertising research, with solid skills in designing and analyzing complex research studies
  • Extensive experience in data analysis and storytelling, going beyond the “what” to tell the “why” within research results
  • Hands-on and inherently curious, and go above and beyond if you find data taking you in interesting and/or unexpected places
  • Extensive experience with vendors in these three measurement areas:

-Reach: viewability, on-target percentage, etc.
-Resonance: brand awareness, consideration, intent, etc.
-Reaction: attribution, sales lift, online-to-online, foot traffic, econometric modeling, etc.

    • An extremely strong knowledge of the digital marketing ecosystem, measurement capability landscape, and how it all works from a technical perspective
    • Broad knowledge of measurement solutions, spanning CPG, Auto, Entertainment, Retail, Tech, etc.
    • A positive and collaborative team player who values building strong relationships with colleagues and stakeholders
    • Global research experience is a plus
    • Skills in big data tools like R, Python or SQL are a plus

    We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better product for our users and our creators. This is something we value deeply and we encourage everyone to come be a part of changing the way the world listens to music.
