We are looking for someone passionate about using their craft to help us create strategies and beautifully designed products. How do we deliver valuable, understandable experiences that provide real value to advertisers in the context of Spotify? How do we balance what’s good for business and our advertisers, with the need to champion, empower, and protect our listeners and the content they come to listen to?
