Jackie Balzer

Hi! I'm Jackie Balzer, and I build
websites. interfaces. products. teams. solutions.       

About me 💅

Currently Director of Engineering at Spotify in New York. Previously, manager and tech lead at startups (Allstar, Spotahome) and the Head of Front End Development for Behance and Portfolio, part of the Adobe family and Creative Cloud suite of products.

I'm a solutions-oriented, product-minded engineering manager focused on building meaningful products and empathetic teams. I care about developing individuals and empowering engineering teams to build high quality, impactful solutions and user experiences.

I love working closely with other functions, bridging the gap with engineering and unlocking the potential in others.

Outside of work, I love to hang out with my cat Ned, read books (currently on a science fiction kick), and apply my ever-growing passion for interior design with trips to Target.
