Product Manager – Personalization Platform

Spotify

  • Full Time

The Personalization team makes deciding what to play next easier and more enjoyable for every listener. From Daily Mix to Discover Weekly, we’re behind some of Spotify’s most-loved features. We built them by understanding the world of music and podcasts better than anyone else. Join us and you’ll keep millions of users listening by making great recommendations to each and every one of them. We ask that our team members be physically located in Central European time or Eastern Standard/Daylight time zones for the purposes of our collaboration hours.

The team is part of the User Behavior Squad group in the Personalization Mission. The larger team focuses on understanding listeners and the audio they love and delivers that knowledge through an easy to use platform. This team focuses on delivering fresh, high-scale, broadly-applicable, observational user knowledge to Spotify teams in an easy to understand, fast to deploy, and flexible to customize way so that they can focus on building out their parts of the recommendation-first experience for listeners.
