Research Scientist – Stockholm – Summer 2020

Hey, here's your chance to spend your summer as a Spotify intern and become an integrated member of one of our teams. When the fall comes, this gig might turn into a permanent position, given that you’ve already graduated. 


For the Summer of 2020 we are among others looking for interns in these areas below. Please note that we might have more than one role within each area within multiple teams.

Our Role Within Research – Stockholm


We are looking for Research Scientist interns who have applied experience in the field of machine learning, machine Intelligence, user behavioural analysis, IR, NLP, and more broadly, AI. You will be part of an interdisciplinary team focused on making every user interaction with Spotify amazing through personalisation and discovery, and in the process pushing state of the art and contributing to the wider research community by publishing papers. We work on a broad range of Spotify features – personalised playlists such as Discover Weekly and Daily Mix, the Homepage, Search and other ML systems powering recommendations.

Courses: PhD programme in Computer Science, Data Science, or related areas with a strong computational focus.
Experience: Publications in top tier venues such as WWW, SIGIR, WSDM, RecSys, CHI, KDD, AAAI, ACL, NeurIPS, ICML, or related, in the following topics: search, marketplace research, recommendations, user understanding, large scale experimentation, linguistics or (more broadly) machine learning.


The Intern Gig

This isn't just any internship! Our paid internship program will last for 12-13 weeks next summer starting in the middle of June, and you'll get a chance to gain in-depth knowledge of what it's like to be a Spotify employee.


For the Program we’re looking for enthusiastic students/recent graduates with a passion for audio and an ambition to go far, just like us. You should be at the end of your studies, graduating latest Summer 2021 or recently graduated from your studies.

Make sure attach your CV and Cover letter in English and specify what Intern role you’re interested in, in the application form. We will then match you with the best Intern role based on your interest and skill-set.

This is something we value deeply and we encourage everyone to come be a part of changing the way the world listens to music.
