Senior Backend Engineer

About the job:


Our mission on the Advertising Product & Technology team is to build a next generation advertising platform that aligns with our unique value proposition for audio and video. We work to scale the user experience for hundreds of millions of fans and hundreds of thousands of advertisers. This scale brings unique challenges as well as tremendous opportunities for our artists and creators.

Spotify’s Ad business is growing! We're adding more advertisers than ever and big plans to transition our large direct ads customers over to Ad Studio. The Ads Billing team works with both Spotify for Artists (S4A) and Ad Studio to build bills based on advertiser spend and surface this data to downstream consumers such as Financial Engineering, Accounting, and more. There are many projects in the Ads Data Platform that we're enabling to facilitate that growth.

We are in search of a backend engineer to join our band and assist in expediting our work on some key initiatives such as, supporting enterprise accounts, new market expansion, and better payment features for our users. We pay close attention to bad actors trying to pull a fast one on us and advertise without paying! Our band focuses on backend jobs as well as data pipelines, so we are looking for someone who’s not afraid to dip their toes into the data side as well!

Who You Are

  • You have Java experience.
  • You have a proven ability to craft technical architecture with other teams in a platform environment (we collaborate with many up and downstream teams that we integrate with)
  • You have the ability to work in a tightly-controlled and risk-averse area. Given the nature of the work, we place a high emphasis on quality, correctness and accuracy. Test, test, then release!
  • Our band is based in Eastern Time (EST), and has a requirement for a 9-5 on-call to maintain our SLAs.
  • You have experience working with data jobs/pipelines. We own quite a few data pipelines and being able to contribute and work with those jobs is helpful.
  • You have domain experience with our (or other) Ads business. There’s a decent amount of ad-related jargon to ramp up on.
  • You have worked with payments/money/billing before. We love it when people bring ideas they’ve implemented before and can start fast.

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 North America 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.
  • Working hours? We operate within the Eastern Standard time zone for collaboration.

The United States base range for this position is $156,275 - $223,250 , plus equity. The benefits available for this position include health insurance, six month paid parental leave, 401(k) retirement plan, monthly meal allowance, 23 paid days off, 13 paid flexible holidays. These ranges may be modified in the future.

Spotify is an equal opportunity employer. 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.
