My name is Joel and I'm currently a Staff Software Engineer at Spotify (since 2016), based in NY.
At Spotify, I've worked mostly on building big and ambitious monetization platforms from the ground up:
- Built Spotify Ad Studio (a self-serve marketplace for audio ads) from $0 - tens of millions in revenue
- Building a self-serve and managed service, paid music promotion offering in Spotify for Artists from $0 to millions in revenue
I believe in situational leadership, eating last, sponsoring others, and leading by example.
- Currently: Elixir and the BEAM
I used to do a lot of open source before having my beautiful children. I hack when I can.
