Spotify is looking for Data Engineering Interns to join us this Summer. You will build data driven solutions to bring audio and digital media experiences to our millions of active users and artists either by working directly on product features, publishing and insight tools for artists, or by improving the quality of our data tools and large scale data infrastructure. You will take on complex data-related problems using some of the most diverse datasets available — user behaviors, acoustical analysis, revenue streams, cultural and contextual data, and other signals across our broad range of mobile and connected platforms. Above all, your work will impact the way the world experiences audio.

What you'll do

  • Build large-scale batch and real-time data pipelines with data processing frameworks like Scalding, Scio, Storm, Spark and the Google Cloud Platform.
  • Use best practices in continuous integration and delivery.
  • Help drive optimization, testing and tooling to improve data quality.
  • Collaborate with other engineers, ML experts and collaborators, taking learning opportunities that will arise every single day.
  • Work in multi-functional agile teams to continuously experiment, iterate and deliver on new product objectives.

Who you are

  • You are pursuing a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree or a bootcamp certification in Computer Science or Computer Engineering or a related field of study.
  • You currently have valid work authorization to work in the country in which this role is based that will extend from June to August 2022
  • You are a current sophomore, junior or senior in undergrad or a first or final year Master's student
  • You’ve dabbled in high volume data, preferably with distributed systems such as Hadoop, BigTable, and Cassandra.
  • You know how to write distributed, high-volume services in Java, Scala and Python.
  • You’ve had exposure to data modeling, data access, and data storage techniques.
  • You have an interest in agile software processes, data-driven development, reliability, and responsible experimentation.
  • You understand the value of collaboration within teams.

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.

Our paid summer internships last for 10-13 weeks and start at the beginning of June. The last day to apply is January 4th, 2022 at 11:59 AM EST.
