Your analyses will result in improvements of our KPIs that we use internally to measure success.

Being our expert within data science, you will take user analytics and consumer insight to the next level to drive growth. You will study user behavior, strategic initiatives, markets, content, and new features and bring data and insights into every decision we make. You are expected to build up your domain from the ground but doing so, you will have access to some of the world’s greatest mind within data science across the Spotify family. Above all, your work will impact the way the world creates music.
