Description

We are looking for a passionate and seasoned product leader to join Spotify’s User Engagement group. Our goal is to make every listening session more engaging through personalization and discovery; in this role, you’d help multiple product teams find better ways to combine our understanding of the world of music with our 100M+ users’ unique tastes and preferences, helping music fans listen for longer, find new artists they love, and come back to Spotify more often.

What you’ll do
Work closely as part of a tight-knit team with your tech and design counterparts in the User Engagement group
Lead the unified vision and roadmaps for Spotify’s flagship personalized experiences – including Discover Weekly, Daily Mix, and Release Radar – as well as explore new opportunities and personalization user needs
Drive experimentation on—and improvements to—our recommendation/ML models and programming infrastructure, with a clear vision of how to measure quality as well as assess the potential impact of new capabilities
Incorporate advances in research into product opportunities, and help guide research direction based on product roadmap
Be the voice of the user at all times, and work hand-in-hand with our user research, data science, and editorial teams to continually identify, understand, and address underserved user populations and needs
Manage, inspire, and grow our group’s existing product organization and squads
Work from our NYC office (with frequent travel) to serve teams that span NYC, Boston, and Stockholm

Who you are
You have substantial demonstrated experience managing and developing well-loved software products. You’ve had many experiences defining product roadmaps, building collaboratively with design and engineering peers, and shipping at scale.
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 non-engineers alike
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 proven ability to influence decision-making at all levels within an organization, and in a variety of contexts
You have a strong gut based on experience, but take a critical mind even to your own ideas and are ready to prove them wrong with data


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.
