Spotify is looking for an experienced technologist to help drive the future of our advertising and promotions platform with advanced data solutions. You will lead the technology vision in this domain, tackling complex data-related problems leveraging some of the most diverse datasets available — user behaviors, acoustical analysis, cultural and contextual data, and signal across our broad range of mobile and connected platforms.
