Spotify hiring for music hardware projects

spotify logo March2016 canvasRecent job postings for Spotify imply that the company, long known for its music streaming platform, may be planning to move into hardware. Spotify is hiring a senior product manager of hardware and a product manager of voice. These openings indicate that Spotify might be pushing into hardware categories that would put the company into further competition with tech giants such as Apple and Amazon.

The hardware position advertised earlier this week is looking for a candidate who can help Spotify develop “a category defining product akin to Pebble Watch, Amazon Echo, and Snap Spectacles.” The interest in voice technology also draws a comparison to the Amazon Echo, but it also shows the extent of the company’s voice efforts in third-party integrations.
