Spotify Getting Into Hardware and Live Music

Word on the rumor mill is that streaming music provider Spotify is looking to get into the hardware business and place a heavier focus on live music. The company is reportedly hiring people to help in the creation and marketing of speakers and other hardware and a producer for live urban and latin events.

Music mogul Jimmy Iovine once said that the streaming companies were in a bad situation because it was next to impossible to become profitable from just streaming. Not the greatest sentiment for companies like Spotify, who is looking to go public with a possible $19 billion valuation. So it makes sense that the company would want to diversify it’s product line.

According to DigitalMusicNews:

Spotify has recently posted three interesting job advertisements on its website.  It is now hiring an Operations Manager in Hardware Product and a Senior Project Manager in Hardware Project.  It is also looking for a Project Manager in Hardware Production and Engineer.

Of course, those weren’t the only job posting available for the company. Music Business Worldwide is reporting that the company also posted for a Producer: Live Events, both Latin and Urban varieties.

According to MBW:

Based in New York, two job roles currently being advertised for a Producer, Live Events: Urban and a Latin version will directly lead the planning, production, and promotion of tours alongside external co-promotion partners like Live Nation.

The news comes as Apple releases it’s own speaker-enabled smart device the “HomePod” and Facebook is looking to do the same.
