Students at Spotify

Band members wanted

Internships at Spotify are anything but conventional. You won’t be making tea, picking up packages or taking minutes. You’ll be right at the heart of major projects, working with teams of passionate people to create the next awesome thing.

Whatever you’re studying, we have all kinds of internships to suit you – summer, thesis, academic and co-op. Take your pick.

Or, if you’ve just finished your studies, keep checking here to find grad and trainee opportunities.

Check back in late September/early October for Summer 2021 internship postings.

Are you in primary school or high-school? Hi! We wish you a future career in something that you thoroughly enjoy and are passionate about, and we hope we’ll get to meet you in a couple of years. Right now though, we don’t offer any internships, programs, or job opportunities for students below university level. But if you’re passionate about coding and curious about our platform, do check out the Spotify for Developers site.

Spotify for Developers


What is the summer internship recruitment timeline?
Each fall semester, we open up our summer internship applications around September & October. Our application is a deadline based application rather than a rolling one meaning we evaluate all candidates after our application deadline. Our applications will close in November. Our interview process takes place over the winter months.


Who is eligible for the summer internship program?
Current students pursuing Associates, Bachelor’s, Master’s & PhD degrees as well as bootcamp certifications. We also accept new graduates for our summer internships.


Do you accept applications that are received after the application deadline?
We do not accept any applications that come in after our designated deadlines. To find our specific deadlines, please look at the job description for the roles you are applying to.


Do I have to be referred by a Spotify employee to apply or be considered for an internship?
No, we make sure each candidate that applies gets full consideration in the process. 


Do you sponsor visas for internships?
In the US, we sponsor students studying on F1 visas and will provide you with what is needed for OPT/CPT. We do not sponsor the J1 visa at this time. If you are given a full-time offer, our full-time recruitment team will let you know if that position will sponsor the H1B visa.

In EMEA & JAPAC, the student is responsible to have an accurate visa in order to work with us. We only recruit students that are currently based in the location for the internship. 


Do you have new grad or new master’s grad opportunities?
Currently we do not have any roles that are specifically for new college grads or master’s grads. Rather, we encourage graduating students to apply to full time roles closer to their graduation dates as all the roles you will see online right now are for immediate fill. You may also want to consider applying for our Summer Internship Program (applications are available each Fall) as new college grads and students graduating from a master’s program are eligible. We do regularly convert our eligible interns and recommend that as the best path to a full time entry level role at Spotify.


Are summer internships rotational?
Our summer internships are not rotational unless specified in the job description. Rather you are placed on one team which you will work with during the duration of your time at Spotify over the internship.


Can you connect me with Spotify employees in the jobs or departments I’m most interested in?
We can’t give out Spotifier contact information but please feel free to send Spotifiers LinkedIn messages to connect with them there.


Will Spotify be visiting my campus?
Check out the Student Event section on for a list of our upcoming campus events. 


Are Spotify internships paid?


Can Spotify Sponsor my on campus event or host my group for an office tour?
Please reach out to with inquiries related to student tours and event sponsorships.


How can I stand out in my application and in the interview process?
Firstly, do your research and let us know why you are interested in Joining the Band! We love to see cover letters, portfolios and personal websites in addition to your resume to give us a better sense of who you are, your experience and what you are passionate about! Pay close attention to our different job descriptions and apply to only the ones that you are interested in and that align with your background!


Do I need to be a musician or podcaster to get a Spotify internship?
While you can find several music and podcast nerds at Spotify, we don’t require you to be a musician or a podcaster. Those things are just a plus!


If I want to get data and information for my research, what do I do?
