Senior Platform Engineer

The Infrastructure team’s mission is to ensure that Spotify engineers can iterate securely, reliably, and efficiently. We craft technologies and solutions that allow our developers to focus on building the best music streaming product in the world. Do you love to work with cloud-native products or improve the velocity of an entire developer community? We are looking for engineers to help us improve upon several of our core product areas, including our observability and reliability systems, container orchestration, continuous delivery, cloud cost engineering, and test infrastructure tools. As part of a small multi-functional team, you’ll work on problems of scale that impact our entire development lifecycle from staging to canary to production.

What we’re looking for:

  • You’re experienced at crafting, building, and operating distributed systems at large-scale i.e. across thousands of VMs
  • You love programming. We use a lot of Java or Python, though we welcome deep experience in any language of choice
  • You’re serious about testing; unit and integration testing is part of how you do your work
  • You’re proficient with Linux tools and shell scripting
  • You’ve worked with cloud-native technologies like Kubernetes

Who you are:

  • You are passionate about developing services that are used by hundreds of developers
  • You enjoy getting into the weeds, for example diving deep into networking or the internals of concurrency in Java
  • You have familiarity with continuous integration and delivery philosophies and practices – tools like Docker, Jenkins, Kubernetes, etc
  • You have supported production-grade systems and have experience with open source and proprietary offerings in this space

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.
