The appointee will join as part of Spotify’s experimental growth team and collaborate with its product, insights, and design departments. The critical emphasis would be to leverage new technologies to uncover the next growth opportunity for Spotify. In addition to a senior engineer, the Spotify team is also looking to hire other roles for its Web3 expansion. For example, the company posted an offering for a Senior Innovation and Marketing Intelligence Manager familiar with emerging trends, especially Web3.
It seems natural for Spotify to enter the metaverse. Some of its most prominent artists like Travis Scott, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and Marshmello have already performed on other metaverse platforms. The international hip-hop sensation Snoop Dogg also recently dropped an album on the Gala Music platform. Even some of Spotify’s shareholders, including Sony Music Entertainment and Universal Music Group, have already advanced the metaverse. However, Spotify is not the only famous company looking for new talent in the Web3 space.
YouTube, a platform with a two billion worldwide user base, has begun scouting for a Project Management Director to develop and head its Web3 strategies. Indian music label T-Series announced its upcoming metaverse ventures and is also looking for Web3-based roles. You can even find similar job postings made by Microsoft.
