We are looking for a Product Designer to join our Creator Studio team to help us develop new products for Creators and their teams! You’ll help us craft a strategy rooted firmly in user insights that paint an exciting vision of the future, and deliver on that vision through effective planning, interaction design, visuals, and prototypes.
In Creator Studio, we build consumer-facing products that provide creators new avenues for promoting their work, reaching new audiences, and deepening connections with fans. We build features like Marquee and Canvas for artists looking to promote new releases, catalogs, or events. Our teams work in both the consumer Spotify client as well as our Spotify for Artists platform. As a result, designers are exposed to a broad set of Spotify features and services!

What you'll do

  • Lead design projects across the entire product lifecycle and multiple product launches.
  • Set the vision for the user experience and build the space for others to collaborate.
  • Work with small multi-disciplinary teams and partner closely with engineering, product, and business folks to find elegant but practical solutions to design challenges.
  • Provide thought leadership to develop the right product strategy. Together, you’ll tackle problems and come up with solutions that delight our users.
  • Be autonomous. You’ll take full ownership of your work, and you take responsibility for every last detail, every step of the way.
  • Rapidly produce multiple concepts and prototypes; knowing when to apply pixel-perfect attention to detail, and when to make low-fi sketches and prototypes.

Who you are

  • 3+ years of relevant work experience.
  • Have proven design chops, shipped products, and understand what it takes to create valuable and meaningful experiences.
  • Talented systems problem solver and can connect the dots between various user groups and industry workflows and turn them into simple and impactful product propositions and flows.
  • Constantly sketching concepts, tweaking flows, or refining designs that represent the big-thinking work.
  • Effective communicator and facilitator. You have planned sprints and structured workshops to drive outcomes quickly and effectively. You’re familiar with standard methodologies but are just as comfortable challenging them.
  • Have the ability to deliver high-quality work, and care about the impact.
  • Have a people-focused design mentality. You are constantly looking to refine your designs through user feedback, whether through hands-on user research, or designing options for A/B tests.
  • You have an online portfolio or PDF that you can share with us.
