The mission of our Premium Analytics Team is to bring Spotify Premium to more users across the globe and to constantly evolve and improve our offering. You'll be a crucial partner in guiding decisions for crafting the Premium of the future. At your fingertips you’ll have access to petabytes of data, and will get the opportunity to be creative with how you drive insights from that. Above all, your work will impact the way the world experiences music.
You will work with a global team of outstanding analysts, data scientists, business managers and engineers. We are all passionate about what we do, and move forward with high impact projects at a fast pace. Learning and improving is part of our daily routine, and you will be free to develop your own skills and ways of working.

  • Drive business decisions and help tailor our offerings, by analyzing troves of data
  • Work with business managers & developers to understand the change they are driving, help them discover new opportunities, and forecast the impact of new business initiatives
  • Design custom analyses to answer strategic business questions. Very little of what you do will be standard, out-of-the-box analysis.
  • Be an experienced sounding board to our business managers and partners
  • Define meaningful metrics and build scalable data pipelines and dashboards to monitor them
