    • You are comfortable working with distributed teams across multiple offices and time zone you’re capable of mentoring more junior data scientist to set them up for success

You are welcome at Spotify for who you are, no matter where you come from, what you look like, or what’s playing in your headphones. Their platform is for everyone, and so is their workplace.
