Web Engineer – Platform Mission

The Platform department creates the technology ecosystem that enables Spotify to learn and deliver quickly, while safely and easily scaling to billion customers, and enabling our rapid employee growth around the globe. Our team consists of six organisational units (known as ‘tribes’) that reflect the needs and groupings of our internal customers – from the shared approaches to supporting and aligning the craft and practice of designers, engineers, researchers, and data scientists – to the frameworks, capabilities and tools they need to do their work as effectively, quickly, and safely as possible. We are an amplifier for productivity, quality, and innovation across Spotify.

We are looking for engaged and skilled Web Engineers to join our teams in the Platform mission product area. We are working together in autonomous teams that take full responsibility for their own part of the Spotify ecosystem. Some teams work with a feature like Search, others focus on supporting monitoring or making it super easy to deploy features on certain types of clients. Our mission is to provide an intuitive, industry-leading engineering experience that inspires excellence and innovation. Together we try to find new ways to craft an outstanding Spotify experience for all our users at all times. Above all, your work will impact the way the world experiences music.

As a Web Engineer you will influence the team’s web interfaces and contribute to the code-to-production experience of all developers in Spotify, giving awesome feedback on code quality, tests and helping solving failures when building and deploying. You will work with team members from various Spotify groups, with a focus on finding scalable solutions with the goal of increasing both effectiveness and efficiency across our cloud technology (compute, storage, database, machine learning, observability, orchestration, developer tools, etc.). 

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