If you’re the right one for us, you pay attention to detail, are flexible and take great pride in your work. You should have an insatiable appetite for learning new skills and constantly improving existing ones. You’re going to help us make Spotify even better, whether it’s by command-line hacking, building new features, or optimizing performance.

- An understanding of object-oriented programming and software design patterns

- Excellent analytical and problem solving skills
- Strong spoken and written communication skills

Also nice:
- Hadoop, Hive, etc.
- You are comfortable processing and analyzing large data sets
- Data visualization
- Dedication to unit testing, code review and other quality-oriented practices
- A complementary set of front-end skills (JavaScript, CSS, HTML5)
- Experience with PHP
- Enthusiasm for working with Agile processes (Scrum/Kanban/TDD/XP/...) in a team environment
- Participation in free and open source software development
- A couple of hobby projects that you want to show us
- A degree in computer science or similar

People who meet us tend to comment on our energy, and the passion we have for what we’re doing. We hope it’s infectious! At such a fast-moving company you’ll find opportunities rather than boundaries in every single role.
