Senior Manager, Premium Growth Strategy

We are looking for a Senior Manager to join the Growth Strategy team for our Spotify Premium paid audio subscription product. The Senior Manager will focus on analysis and research to inform our growth strategy — helping determine how we invest to grow our business beyond the 108M paid subscribers announced in our last earnings report.

This is a new high-impact role on a lean team that will help set the strategy on how we grow the world’s leading paid music / audio subscription business, currently live in 79+ countries. 

In this role, you will work with a diverse set of teams across the Premium business unit (operating teams, insights teams, and analytics teams), as well as with teams within other Spotify business units such as Content and Finance. The role is based in our New York office and will be reporting to the Director of Premium Growth Strategy.

What You’ll Do

  • You will execute on strategic analyses and projects, to help identify and evaluate growth opportunities 

  • You will partner with our Analytics team to conduct detailed analyses on our users on platform to identify actionable insights that shape our strategy

  • You will partner with our Consumer Insights team to perform segmentation and clustering analyses within our key markets globally to refine our understanding of the addressable market and how to win them

  • You will help identify and analyze established and emerging companies with compelling business models / growth frameworks which could inform our own growth strategy

  • You will keep on top of key entertainment and technology industry news and trends and act as a highly informed strategic sounding board for the Director of Premium Growth Strategy as well as for the Premium leadership team

  • You will work from our office in New York

Who You Are

  • You are highly passionate about the future of entertainment and digital media, you have an informed point of view on where the industry is headed, and you want to play a role in shaping that future at one of the few globally scaled pure-play digital media companies

  • You are both collaborative and an intensely curious self-starter with a demonstrated ability to keep projects moving and deliver great results on time without the need for too much oversight

  • You are comfortable with the level of ambiguity that comes with being at a high growth company 

  • Your past work experiences have provided you with:

    • Solid quantitative skills to efficiently analyze and evaluate ideas (as a bare minimum you are an Excel master)

    • Strong qualitative skills to ask the right questions and to frame your analysis

    • Strong interpersonal skills to navigate a rapidly growing global organization and to communicate key takeaways (and their impact on growth) elegantly and succinctly

    • Impeccable attention to detail 

  • You have at least a Bachelor’s degree from a leading university, ideally in a quantitative area (economics, finance, statistics, marketing, business, etc.). You might also have an MBA (but not mandatory).

  • You have 4-6 years of work experience which could include relevant strategy or growth experience at a well known successful technology or digital media company (perhaps in digital video, gaming, SaaS, etc.) and/or time at a top tier investment bank / equity research firm or management consulting firm.

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 to be a part of changing the way the world listens to music.
