The Platform & Partner Experience organisation looks after the experience we provide to our users across a wide array of devices including desktop, TV & Smart-Displays. They are driving the best experience on the most relevant devices throughout our users day.
As Director of Engineering, you will look after an organization spanning across approx. 60 engineers and several teams as they develop and innovate on Spotify’s consumer experience across our richest and largest web-based screen experiences. This is a genuine opportunity to have a tremendous impact on the actual user experience, driving the strategic engineering decisions that will enable us to reach our goal of over one billion users.
Working in collaboration with Product and Design counterparts, you will define and implement a healthy strategy that improves our reach and impact for the business. You will also drive impact through Senior Engineering Manager, Engineering Managers and Staff Engineers reports; encouraging the best engineering practices, regularly assessing the technical state and general health of teams, and providing focused mentoring to teams. This will include helping to ensure that our solutions are scalable, balanced, architecturally sound, and that technical debt is both incurred consciously and repaid in a reasonable time.
