We are now looking for a seasoned product leader to lead our Music product domain.
How you will make an impact
We are constantly increasing and improving our portfolio of products which are based around a diverse, high quality library of restriction-free music.

This role will be a major driving force in company-wide strategic concerns such as:
What experiences do we build to help storytellers find the music they need?
What experiences do we build to become the best destination for emerging artists?
How will we harness technological advances to improve the experiences of both artists and storytellers?
What can we do to help creators fuel their creative and commercial success?
How can we connect our large network of storytellers with their massive audiences with our artists for their mutual success?

Who you are

You make PMs and teams perform at their best, knowing what great looks like in terms of the product craft, culture, and helping our organization in getting there. At the same time, you take a critical mind to your own ideas and believe that being challenged by colleagues leads to even better ideas and innovation.
You have the ability to navigate and drive mission-critical strategic initiatives on an executive level, and can balance these against lower priority work. You are used to influencing decision-making at all levels within an organization and have excellent communication skills.
