Spotify is hiring an associate director to lead a payments strategy team involved in Spotify's cryptocurrency and digital asset efforts, according to a new public posting on the streaming service’s website. 

The associate director "will play a key part in defining and implementing Spotify’s payments strategy as well as leading Spotify’s activity within the Libra stablecoin project and wider digital asset & cryptocurrency space," per the posting. Libra rebranded to Diem earlier this week. 

The associate director will also “drive further consideration of new opportunities and innovation” through the use of distributed ledger technology, blockchains, cryptocurrencies, central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) and other assets. The role will be based in either London or Stockholm. 

Spotify did not respond immediately to The Block’s requests for comment.
