Spotify is looking for Data Engineers to join our Free Product team. You will build infrastructure to help scale Spotify’s Free Product and Ads ranking/targeting capabilities. This is an opportunity to work with massive scale real time data and build solutions to run predictive algorithms on production.

You will build data-driven solutions to bring music and digital media experiences to our 100 million active users and millions of artists either by working directly on product features, publishing and insight tools for artists, or by improving the quality of our data tools and large scale data infrastructure. You will take on complex data-related problems using some of the most diverse datasets available — user behaviors, acoustical analysis, revenue streams, cultural and contextual data, and other signals across our broad range of mobile and connected platforms. Above all, your work will impact the way the world experiences music.

*Please note: this posting represents multiple roles across various teams, including a range of responsibilities and experience level* 

What You’ll Do

  • Build large-scale batch and real-time data pipelines with data processing frameworks like Scalding, Scio, Storm, Spark and the Google Cloud Platform.
  • Use best practices in continuous integration and delivery.
  • Help drive optimization, testing and tooling to improve data quality.
  • Collaborate with other software engineers, ML experts and stakeholders, taking learning and leadership opportunities that will arise every single day.
  • Work in multi-functional agile teams to continuously experiment, iterate and deliver on new product objectives.

Who You Are

  • You know how to work with high volume heterogeneous data, preferably with distributed systems such as Hadoop, BigTable, and Cassandra.
  • You know how to write distributed, high-volume services in Java or Scala.
  • You are knowledgeable about data modeling, data access, and data storage techniques.
  • You appreciate agile software processes, data-driven development, reliability, and responsible experimentation.
  • You understand the value of partnership within teams.
  • You are willing to work from our awesome office in New York. We offer relocation packages if you do not currently live in New York.

We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better product for our users and our creators. This is something we value deeply and we encourage everyone to come be a part of changing the way the world listens to music.
