About Talk

Spotify is a global community of over 250 million music fans, artists, and now podcasters. It’s always been our mission to make audio more accessible for everyone, and create innovative ways for creators and fans to connect with each other.

Talk is the team within Spotify responsible for building the best tools for audio creators. We have three platforms that help us deliver a great creator experience: Anchor (the platform that allows you to create, distribute, monetize, and grow a podcast, all for free), Spotify for Podcasters (the platform that makes it easy to understand and engage with your listeners on Spotify, and Greenroom (the platform that allows anyone to stream or listen to live audio).

We’ve done a lot already, and we have no plans of slowing down. Come help us build the future of audio creation!

We’re looking for an experienced Group PM to join our team and oversee our “Monetize” product area, focused on building and scaling intuitive monetization tools across all of our verticals: Podcasts, Video, and Live. This is a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of many brand-new initiatives for Spotify.

 

What you’ll do:

 

  • Manage 3 PMs, working across 3 verticals (ads monetization, fan monetization, and our monetization platform)
  • Build and complete a cohesive product vision that ladders up to our mission’s strategy and Spotify’s goals for these verticals
  • Partner with Engineering, Design, and Insights leaders to foster a team culture of impact, performance, and happiness
  • Ensure your team is aligned with team and company leadership and focusing on the right things, always balancing quality vs speed and short vs long term needs
  • Help drive and organize collaboration between Talk PMs and PMs on different teams within Spotify
  • Build and maintain a positive relationship with high-level partners (spanning Product, Content, Marketing, Legal, and Trust & Safety) across Spotify
  •  

    Who you are:

     

  • 10+ years of experience building consumer-facing software, and 2+ managing product managers
  • A highly collaborative leader that is capable of formulating and advocating for a clear, impactful product vision and strategy and working cross-functionally to deliver on that roadmap
  • Passionate about hiring, mentoring, and leading a diverse and impactful team of product managers
  • An effective, purposeful, and concise communicator, and know-how to influence and manage a large list of partners with conflicting and competing priorities
  • Organized and results-driven, can manage multiple projects extending across many teams, stick to realistic deadlines, and push back when vital
  • An exceptional communicator, comfortable with both writing and presenting to get your ideas heard and get consensus from a variety of collaborators
  • Big on “radical candor”, and able to both give and receive direct feedback to help things progress efficiently
  • Creative in all the right ways. You’re bursting with non-traditional ideas, and not afraid to give them all a try… but you also know how to balance those fun ideas with reality, resources, and business needs
  • All about execution. You have a proven track record to efficiently and confidently implement, deliver, and iterate, and have a “no task too big or too small” attitude towards getting things done
  •  

    Where you’ll be:

     

  • We are a distributed workforce enabling our band members to find a work mode that is best for them!
  • Where in the world? For this role, it can be within the Americas region in which we have a work location and is within working hours
