Our employees are the heart that powers Spotify’s service. We are a rapidly growing group of the most amazing and passionate people across the globe focused on giving a million creative artists the opportunity to live off their art and billions of fans the opportunity to enjoy and be inspired by it.
The Paid – area is an engineering area that combines finance/accounting knowledge with deep technical knowledge about information architecture and big data. Our mission is to provide accurate, reliable and timely financial reporting to various stakeholders in the company.
You will manage a team to meet the needs and demands of a broadening scope and a growing employee base. You must be passionate about creating a state of the art engineering organization and culture as well as being passionate about building the business IT infrastructure that will help other parts of the organization iterate on new business ideas even faster.
As a leader of Paid Area Engineering, you must be passionate about back-end business infrastructure that powers sales opportunities at a global scale at the same time that it is providing accurate, reliable and timely financial data downstream. This includes amongst other things settlement matching, revenue recognition, tax/VAT and invoicing.
