The Platform department creates the technology ecosystem that enables Spotify to learn and deliver quickly, while safely and easily scaling to billion customers, and enabling our rapid employee growth around the globe. Our team consists of eight organisational units (known as ‘tribes’) that reflect the needs and groupings of our internal customers - from the shared approaches to supporting and aligning the craft and practice of designers, engineers, researchers, and data scientists - to the frameworks, capabilities and tools they need to do their work as effectively, quickly, and safely as possible. We are an amplifier for productivity, quality, and innovation across Spotify.
The Insights Platform teams within Data and Insights have a wide range of responsibilities.  The teams enable the consumption of Insights by helping anyone at Spotify answer their questions using data.  Additionally, the teams build tools to support Data Scientists in their end to end workflow, querying data in BigQuery, exploring data in Jupyter notebook, and visualizing data with Tableau or QlikSense.  Join us and help to amplify productivity, quality and innovation across Spotify.
