From the Interview:
Where do you work and what is your role?
I work at Pandora as a music librarian on the Curation team. At Pandora, we enable people to discover music they love. Behind the scenes at Curation, that means finding music and making it available to our listeners. I work closely with our curators to ingest and validate new music as they acquire it. My primary role is collection management, including overall library and metadata maintenance. I also work on projects devoted to improving our metadata framework by creating information architecture, and taxonomies, and detailing content management features for our internal systems.
