Spotify could potentially be lining up its own wearable if a, now removed, job listing is anything to go by.
The listing, which has been helpfully cached by Google, was looking for a senior product manager to join Spotify’s ‘platform & partner experience’ team to build Spotify experiences through fully-connected hardware devices at its global headquarters in Stockholm.
“You will be leading an initiative to deliver hardware directly from Spotify to existing and new customers; a category defining product akin to Pebble Watch, Amazon Echo, and Snap Spectacles,” the listing states. “You will define the product requirements for internet-connected hardware, the software that powers it, and work with suppliers/manufacturers to deliver the optimal Spotify experience to millions of users.”
The possible Spotify project was first reported by Zatz Not Funny, citing ‘a trusted source’, but many of the details remain unclear.
Spotify has also been looking for a director of product for natural language understanding and a product manager for voice, which could both also be important to Spotify’s development of wearable technology.
