Soundtrap is a collaborative, browser- and cloud-based recording studio. As of November 2017, we are a part of the Spotify family. Our mission is to enable music and podcast creation for everyone, no matter where in the world you are or what device you are using.
We’re a unit within Spotify, small enough to move fast and make our own decisions, but with all the technical resources that we need from the larger company.
Since our launch in 2013, we have attracted millions of users. With us, anyone can make their recordings online, either as an independent creator or in collaboration with friends, band members or classmates.
As the Director of Engineering, Product and Design for Soundtrap R&D, you will enable leaders and teams to create the world’s best online audio platform. This work will involve all aspects of leadership; motivating teams, developing leaders, satisfying stakeholders and collaborating with business unit leaders. You will be the bridge between business and technology, realising the business goals of the organisation by delivering value through our products and teams.
Your experience should include leading a significant and relevant software development organisation of 30-100 people within a company experiencing hyper-growth. Specific experience with developing online collaboration tools, cross-platform development, audio programming and/or music production is a plus.
Spotify’s culture encourages innovation, collaboration, transparency, passion and playfulness. There is a strong focus on continuous self-improvement, learning through experimentation and actively sharing feedback to constantly improve performance. As a leader, you will model these values, to better enable the team to practice them in their daily work.
You will work from our Stockholm office and be part of the Soundtrap leads team and report to the Managing Director of Soundtrap.
Today, Spotify is the world’s most popular music streaming service with a community of 217m active users, including 100m subscribers across 79 markets. We are the largest driver of revenue to the music business today.
