We’re many different voices, sharing the same stage
This is how we rock
It’s hard to capture the true culture of a company and put it into words. But we went ahead and did it anyway in this, our band manifesto.
To unlock the potential of human creativity by giving a million creators the opportunity to live off their art and billions of fans the opportunity to enjoy and be inspired by it.
We move fast and take big risks
We move fast and take big risks. We cultivate curiosity. We’re unafraid to fail, knowing that each mistake contains a valuable lesson and gets us one step closer towards creativity and innovation.
We have no time for internal politics
We have no time for internal politics. We lead with transparency and engage with open minds. Creating something new requires trust so candid feedback delivered with good intent is at the heart of everything we do.
We revel in what we do.
We revel in what we do. We genuinely care about our shared Spotify mission, pushing ourselves to become masters of the part we play. We energize and inspire others around us, knowing that excitement drives innovation.
We recognize that we’re all in this together.
We recognize that we’re all in this together. Everyone is an integral part of the work we do with an equal opportunity to participate – we share ideas and best practices across business units and in spite of traditional hierarchies.
We don’t take ourselves too seriously.
With all that said, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We connect with each other. We celebrate successes. And just like a real band, we like to jam.

Power to our people
It doesn’t matter where you join us or in what role. You’ll be supported to do your best work, enjoy your day-to-day and get where you want to go.
Work in progress
To us, learning and development isn’t a box you tick. It’s a welcome part of the job. So we don’t just ask you to embrace it, we ask you to own it. We take an always-on approach, encouraging you to learn on the job through stretch assignments, new challenges, and social knowledge sharing so you can drive your own development. Not just once a year. But every single day.
Don’t think that means you have to go it alone though. Your manager will be right there to lend support and guide you on your development journey. We’ve also democratized our learning resources so you can get access to the tools and training you need when you actually need it. And failure? We’re big on accepting it as part of the process and even bigger on using what it taught us to move forwards. All so you can learn faster than the world is changing and stay a few steps ahead.
Life in balance
Self-development can’t happen without self-care. That’s why we’re working hard to create a culture where we look after ourselves and each other. A place where you can be yourself and feel accepted, no matter what you’re going through.

Every voice matters
In our band, everyone has a voice and every voice is heard. We want our people to feel a strong sense of belonging, regardless of what group they belong to.
US gender data
We're honest with our data. It tells us what we're doing right and where we could do better.
US ethnicity data
We’re moving the right direction, but we know there’s more work to be done.
Bear with us, there are still a few gaps in our reported ethnicity data which is currently US-only. We work hard to collect responses from our people and do periodic calls for disclosure, which is always optional, to get us closer to 100%.
