Data Engineer - Royalties & Reporting

We are looking for a Data Engineer to join our royalties & reporting team (RoaR). We build systems and processes around complex business logic on top of very large datasets - Spotify’s 100s of millions of users and billions of daily audio streams. We deliver web based tooling, workflows and data insights to external and internal stakeholders, and most importantly we calculate payouts to Labels and Publishers.

We are hiring software engineers who are very enthusiastic about data to focus on building structured, high-quality data solutions. These solutions will be used to evolve our products bringing better experiences to our 190 million users and the global artist community alike! We are processing petabytes of data using tools such as BigQuery, Dataflow, Pub/Sub and Spark. When needed, we also develop our own data tooling such as Scio , a Scala API for Apache Beam.

This is a highly visible and rewarding role with the potential to make an immediate positive impact in an area directly involved in some of Spotify's top strategic initiatives. We are building systems to tackle problems that are unsolved in the industry. Important business stakeholders like Accounting, Legal & Licensing and Creator Marketplace all rely on us delivering something extra. 

What You'll Do:

  • Explore new ways of producing, processing, and analysing data in order to gain insights into both our users and our product features
  • Design, develop, and test data-driven products and features
  • Work with state-of-the-art data processing frameworks, technologies, and platforms
  • Improve data quality through testing, tooling and continuously evaluating performance
  • Work with other software engineers, data analysts, data scientists, and decision-makers, such as product owners, to build solutions and gain novel insights.
  • Act as the bridge between our backend and analysts and work on data cataloguing/management and build/maintain crucial data pipelines
  • Work in multi-functional agile teams with end-to-end responsibility for product development and delivery within your mission

Who You Are:

  • 2+ Years of experience in the related field
  • An BS/MS in CS or any other relevant fields of study
  • Strong coding skills in preferably Scala, Java and Python
  • Advanced coding skills and practices (concurrency, distributed systems, functional principles, performance optimization)
  • You don’t like leaving questions unanswered and you love exploring/understanding data
  • You care about agile software processes, data-driven development, reliability, and testability.
  • You are passionate about crafting clean code and have a steady foundation in coding and building data pipelines
  • You love visualising your data findings in a clear and easy to understand way and to capture corner cases of implementations
  • Experience performing analysis with large datasets in a cloud based-environment, preferably with an understanding of Google’s Cloud Platform
  • T-Shaped is a plus. You have experience in backend, data science, front end or data visualization
  • You are interested in being the glue between engineering and finance

Where You'll Be:

  • We are a distributed workforce enabling our band members to find a work mode that is best for them!
  • Where in the world? For this role, it can be within the Americas region in which we have a work location
  • Prefer an office to work from home instead? Not a problem! We have plenty of options for your working preferences. Find more information about our Work From Anywhere options here.
  • Working hours? We operate within the Eastern Standard time zone for collaboration 

Spotify is an equal opportunity employer. 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. Our platform is for everyone, and so is our workplace. The more voices we have represented and amplified in our business, the more we will all thrive, contribute, and be forward-thinking! So bring us your personal experience, your perspectives, and your background. It’s in our differences that we will find the power to keep revolutionizing the way the world listens.
