About Anchor

We're democratizing audio by making it possible for anyone, anywhere, to get their voice heard. Anchor is:

• The biggest podcasting platform in the world. We now power more podcasts than any other platform.
• Powering more than 40% of all new podcasts created in the world
• Growing both podcasters and listeners to record numbers week over week
• Giving ANY podcaster the opportunity to monetize their content
• Loved and adored: see what our users say

We're an independent division within Spotify, with the power to move fast, plus the resources of the world's most forward-thinking audio company.

Come help us build the future of podcasting!

If you want to jumpstart the process of talking to us about this role, here’s a little challenge: write a program that outputs the largest unique set of characters that can be removed from this paragraph without letting its length drop below 50.
For example: [‘H’, ‘i’, ‘!’, ‘ ’]

Our Core Values

Move Fast: We learn by doing (that is, we’re not afraid to test our hypotheses on production), and we build things that don’t scale. We’re energized, not daunted, by the massive challenge of changing the world of podcasting. Goonies never say die!

Build the Future: We don’t worry about how podcasting (or even our own product) has worked in the past. We think outside the box, take huge risks, and live by the motto “Anything is possible.”

Creators First: We build tools that make creating audio easier, better or both. Every single feature in Anchor is something everyone can use. (And of course, the easiest way to know what helps podcasters is for us to regularly podcast ourselves.)

There’s No “i” in Anchor: There are no egos here. We ask for help when we need it; help others when they need it, and we’re all hyper-focused on the mission at hand.
