    • You are a communicative person who values building strong relationships with colleagues and partners and enjoys mentoring and guiding others.

    • You have an understanding of how to instrument products to accurately collect user and system behaviors through data for a wide variety of insight and product development use cases.
    • You have hands-on experience synthesizing insights from data using tools such as Python, R, BigQuery, SQL, Tableau.

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. The more voices they have represented and amplified in their business, the more they will all thrive, contribute, and be forward-thinking! So bring them your personal experience, your perspectives, and your background. It’s in their differences that they will find the power to keep revolutionizing the way the world listens.
