Spotify looking for Operations Manager to build hardware team
Feb 22, 2018, 00:35
Do you think that Spotify is really working on a smart speaker?
These are not the first job listings suggestive of a coming hardware product, either. However, the job listing was deleted shortly after it had surfaced on the company's website. It's possible, though, that Spotify is planning to build its own smart speaker that can work without relying on its app.
As discovered by MusicAlly, one of the job listings states that Spotify is "on its way to creating its first physical products", and that the company is now trying to set up an operational organization for all aspects of manufacturing and production, including supply chain, sales, and others.
It expands upon a listing past year for a Senior Product Manager for Hardware to create a "category-defining product akin to Pebble Watch, Amazon Echo, and Snap Spectacles". A smart speaker or even just a speaker that produces incredible sound quality and already has the music streaming service built-in could work. And with Apple not supporting Spotify playback on its HomePod or Apple Watch, it only makes sense for Spotify to tap into making its own listening device.
So after Apple launched the HomePod earlier this month, joining Amazon, Google and other tech companies, we thought there couldn't be more talking, streaming speakers. All of them will be related to music, so its possible that Spotify will put out its own MP3 player, but that seems a little antiquated. Siri will only play tunes if users are subscribed to Apple Music. Their Spotify Connect software allows Amazon's Echo, Sony's PS4, and BMW 7 series vehicles to directly stream music from the cloud.
It's also worth pointing out that Spotify now has over 70 million worldwide subscribers. If it's able to create its own hardware product, like a smart speaker, it already has millions of potential buyers.
