  • Lead design and strategy for the improvement of personalized discovery recommendations within playlists. Work with Product Management to set a vision for the user experience and create the space for others to collaborate

You’ll provide the thought leadership to develop the right product strategy. Together, you’ll solve problems and come up with solutions that delight our users
  • Be autonomous. You’ll take full ownership of your work, and you take responsibility for every last detail, every step of the way
  • Rapidly produce multiple concepts and prototypes; knowing when to apply pixel-perfect attention to detail, and when to make low-fi sketches and prototypes
  • Work from the US, with periodic visits to our Boston office
