We work at the intersection of advertising and messaging technologies to connect millions of brands to billions of fans. As part of the Advertising team, we’re paving the way for a sustainable global Spotify business that allows even more creators to make a living off their art. Come join us and help build the platform that powers promotion at Spotify.
We are looking for a Product Manager to help build the next generation of advertising at Spotify. Our advertising platform currently supports a multi-hundred million dollar advertising business, and your team will work to ensure our ad formats are stable and incidents can be swiftly diagnosed. This team is critical to the future success of our ad platform, and we are looking for a collaborative and innovative product manager to drive strategy and vision forward for our reliability features and products.
You will work cross-functionally with engineering, design, product insights, and business stakeholders to develop diagnostic & troubleshooting tools, automate monitoring for our ad products, and create alerting systems to significantly shorten our incident resolution times and ensure the health of our products. Your team will be the center of excellence for reliability, and will establish processes and build tech to enable other product development teams to build ad formats with operational savviness.
Our ideal Product Manager has led technical products or large-scale platforms, has a deep attention to detail, and concisely communicates complex concepts. You should be equally excited about maximizing reliability while finding a balance, knowing that ensuring maximum reliability also comes at a cost. You will ensure the continued scalability and stability of our ad formats.
