Contractor Product Manager – Finance Royalties and Reporting

Product Manager – Royalties & Reporting, Big Data & Publishing

We are around 50 people in the Royalty tech team today located across Stockholm and New York. Our task is to provide a royalty platform to the rest of the organisation and our licensors that handles our mutual contracts, and make sure we pay and report to each and everyone of them in a timely and correct way.

The teams you will guide from a product perspective are responsible for the technical solutions needed to report to and gather input from the Publishing ecosystem (Collecting Societies, Publishers), through which the song and lyrics writers of the world get their compensation. We are on an exciting journey where we are modernising and improving both our own processes and supporting systems as well as pushing change to the wider community, for instance through a new user interface where licensors can interact with us directly.

What you will do

  • Help set the long-term vision of how Spotify and the licensor community will interact. This will be done together with other PMs in Creator Marketplace, Finance and Premium Business.
  • Work together with our UX Designers to ideate, prototype and iterate on a new user experience for all of our licensors.
  • Work with the rest of the tech team and our internal and external stakeholders to figure out faster and simpler processes to get accurate and precise ownership data in a timely manner, to be able to pay the creators of the world fast and fair.
