Spotify is looking for a Data Engineer to join our RoaR engineering org. We work with royalties and reporting which means that we make sure that the rights holders (record labels, publishers and collecting societies) are getting paid correctly for all the content that is streamed every day on Spotify globally. Product built within RoaR have a lot of impact directly on the financial numbers for the whole Spotify. Which is both a big challenge in verifying the correctness of the numbers and also a big source of satisfaction when we are making improvements that impact Spotify’s margin.

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.

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.

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.
