We are looking for a Data Scientist to join Soundtrap @ Spotify. You will analyze how users engage with Soundtrap, define success measures, monitor performance, and make data-driven recommendations that enable Soundtrap to deliver experiences that delight our users and grow our business. 
Soundtrap is a collaborative, cloud-based recording studio for music makers and storytellers. As of November 2017, we are a part of the Spotify family. Our mission is to enable music and podcast creation for everyone, no matter where in the world you are or what device you are using. We’re a unit within Spotify, small enough to move fast and make our own decisions, but with all the resources that we need from the larger company

What you’ll do

  • Perform analysis on large sets of data to extract impactful insights that will help drive Soundtrap´s strategy across creator-facing products.
  • Establish learning agendas, measurement plans and success metrics in close coordination with product teams
  • Drive product strategy by leading foundational research & experimentation initiatives to develop a deeper understanding of our users
  • Work closely with cross-functional teams of data scientists, engineers, marketers, designers and business developers across the company.
  • Communicate insights and recommendations through clear visualizations and presentations.
  • Contribute to the wider insights community at Spotify & Soundtrap by setting high-quality standards.
  • Help build central frameworks and processes contributing to the success of the Product insights practice throughout the company!

Who you are

  • You have at least 4+ years of experience in a similar data scientist role and a degree in science, computer science, statistics, economics or mathematics.
  • You’re a compelling storyteller who can communicate in succinct and inspiring ways to a variety of audience types to influence real world product or feature decisions.
  • You are a communicative person that values building strong relationships with colleagues and have the ability to explain complex topics in simple terms.
  • You enjoy mentoring and guiding others and have actively contributed to building Data science related frameworks optimally across an organization.
  • You thrive in a dynamic environment and are able to execute with autonomy.
  • You have proven experience working with SaaS products and product teams
  • You have deep understanding of a breadth of modeling techniques (e.g. regression models, causal inference in marketing and product launches, Bayesian techniques)
  • You have strong SQL skills and programmatic expertise, like R or Python
  • Experience with Docker, AWS/Google Cloud Platform infrastructure, Apache Spark/Beam
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.
Spotify transformed music listening forever when we launched in 2008. Our mission is to unlock the potential of human creativity by giving a million creative artists the opportunity to live off their art and billions of fans the chance to enjoy and be passionate about these creators. Everything we do is driven by our love for music and podcasting. Today, we are the world’s most popular audio streaming subscription service with a community of more than 345 million users.
