Want to help reinvent the Spotify user experience for new content categories? We are looking for a Senior Product Manager who is user-focussed, creative and analytical to join our team. We work on specialised features for music, podcasts, live, audiobooks and the innovative content types that are to come. Your team would be responsible for audiobooks. We have moved from being a music app to also be the most successful podcasting platform in the world – all in a few short years! Now we are entering the audiobooks market to improve that too. We’ll build and retain a whole new audience for them – for people who have not even considered the way listening to books can make their life richer and more enjoyable. Your impact will be across many teams, as you hold the experience vision and help other teams work together to iterate and build. You will also be working beyond audiobooks, on crafting the whole Spotify user experience. Above all, your work will impact the way the world experiences audio.
