Hop on board as a Product Designer at Spotify to design for their first hardware devices!

Currently ahead of Apple Music in terms of revenue as well as listeners, Spotify is literally where a majority of the world goes to get their daily dose of music and podcasts. Built around an incredibly powerful recommendation engine (of which I’m an absolute fan), Spotify has the unique ability to serve you fresh music that you’re sure to love. With their recent launch in India, Spotify is now a global giant in the music industry, and chances are you’ve used their music streaming services sometime in your life.
