• The biggest podcasting platform in the world. We now power more podcasts than any other platform.
• Powering more than 40% of all new podcasts created in the world
• Growing both podcasters and listeners to record numbers week over week
• Giving ANY podcaster the opportunity to monetize their content
• Loved and adored: see what our users say
We are an independent division within Spotify, we have the ability to move fast combined with the resources of the world's most forward-thinking audio company
Come help us build the future of podcasting!

What you'll do

  • When we launched Anchor Sponsorships, we doubled the number of podcasters who’d ever been able to monetize via ads within the first month. Now, we’re looking for a passionate and experienced Product Manager to help us build the next generation of podcast advertising. You’ll get to work cross-functionally with the Anchor team, but also collaborate with many teams across Spotify
  • In this role, you will:
  • Help shape the roadmap for Anchor Sponsorships, including working closely with design, engineering, insights, and other Spotify product teams to implement
  • Meet regularly with external users (podcast creators, podcast listeners, and advertisers) and internal stakeholders to ensure we are building the right products, tracking success metrics, and communicating developments
  • Come up with aggressive goals and deadlines for this platform - and hit them

Who you are

  • An experienced PM, with 3+ years of professional experience building or working with advertising platforms.
  • You must have a solid technical understanding of the components of an ad tech stack, including API integrations
  • A big picture thinker, willing and able to build out a complex strategy and see it through
  • Excited by the prospect of working alongside teams responsible for powering ad experiences that support not just traditional advertising, but also new experiences that can democratize and modernize podcast monetization
  • Organized and results-driven, can manage multiple projects extending across many teams, stick to realistic deadlines, and push back when necessary
  • An exceptional communicator, comfortable with both writing and presenting to get your ideas heard and get buy-in from a variety of stakeholders
  • Collaborative, and able to both give and receive direct feedback to help things progress efficiently
  • Creative in all the right ways. You’re bursting with unconventional ideas, and not afraid to give them all a try… but you also know how to balance those fun ideas with reality, resources, and business needs
  • All about execution. You have a proven ability to effectively execute, deliver, and quickly iterate without a lot of direct supervision
  • A fan of audio. This is just a bonus, but if you’ve worked with audio in the past, whether professionally or as a personal project (podcasting, music discovery/recommendations, etc), we’ll be even more excited to add you to our team.

An Insider's view of Podcaster Mission at Spotify

What does your typical day look like?

A typical day starts with a quick stand-up with my team. I then scan a few dashboards to see what podcasts are performing well and better understand what is driving our growth. Often times, I'll get to sit in product meetings as a voice for our creators. The rest of the day is spent meeting with potential creators which is always the highlight.


Head of Content Partnerships

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've been able to learn much more than what applies to just the functions of my job; the importance of teamwork, troubleshooting (there's always another solution!), and communication. I know that the skills I have learned here, from my teammates and through my role, will be applicable to many other aspects of my life and into the future.


Associate Product Manager

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

We have a collaborative roadmap that encourages anyone, in any position on the team, to submit proposals for projects to prioritize. This has been a really great approach for us, both in terms of coming up with great, impactful ideas, and teaching everyone on our team how to advocate for something they believe in.
