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.
Help us build technology that allows publishers to achieve the most from their work, and advertisers to connect with passionate audiences! The Megaphone Platform team at Spotify is searching for a Senior Product Designer to join our mission, dedicated to owning the discovery and design of products that are defining new industry standards for how podcast publishers publish and monetize their shows. 
We are looking for someone with experience partnering with technology, product and insights teams to drive key company initiatives. This role requires passion and craft for developing strategies, frameworks, and product experiences based on insights from real people and an interest in developing the practice of design at Spotify. Megaphone gives our customers the smartest tools to publish, monetize, and measure their podcast business. Through Spotify’s multi-hundred million dollar ads business and ongoing investment in original audio content along with our publishing partners, you will have the outstanding opportunity to help Megaphone amplify and scale what’s extraordinary about podcasts.

What You'll Do

  • Provide design leadership within a feature-focused product team by collaborating with product managers, researchers, writers, and engineering partners to champion outstanding customer experiences.

  • Act autonomously and take ownership. You’ll provide teams with the methods, process and solutions needed to execute strategy. You’ll drive progress through obstacles by building consensus and making decisions - taking ownership for every last detail, every step of the way.
