The team works to illuminate the ways creative factors and audience dynamics shape the listening experience to help guide the creators, curators and partnership teams that fill Spotify with music and podcasts.
We are looking for a Senior Project Manager to work with the group’s managers and ensure the team is effectively using its resources and delivering high-priority projects in a timely manner.

For high priority projects, you will be accountable for ensuring various researchers understand their objectives and for navigating any obstacles that arise to a timely delivery.
Across all duties, the role will have to understand the priority goals of both the team and the entire business and work to ensure resources are being best deployed to advance towards those goals.
