  • You will conduct user research interviews and usability testing sessions
  • You will establish and embody a world-class design culture with an extremely high-bar for quality

  • You have a strong portfolio of relevant design work that conveys your ability to ship and focus on outcomes
  • You have a bias towards action and a curiosity-driven approach to solving problems in a fast-paced, and often ambiguous environment
  • You have a passion for music and are as excited as we are to design the future of music
