Personal approach and company's dedication to fostering a healthy relationship with its employees.


All my team was remote most of the time, which is perfectly fine for most people, but I was missing real-life interactions.

  1. Data Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    All in all was probably the most pleasant recruiting experience I've ever had!

    Recruiter was very timely and always provided updates on my progress and feedback from each stage.
    1 Recruiter screen
    2 Technical screen 75 mins. DSA, domain and SQL
    3 A 4 stage final round consisting of:
    - DSA (harder than tech screen, LC mediums)
    - Data round (kind of a mix of sys design and coding interview)
    - System Design
    - Behavioural

    Questions should be approachable for anybody with good DSA and Data Engineering domain knowledge but if you want to ace the finals you need to demonstrate solid Software/Data Engineering foundations & provide good detail on solutions (I'm aware of this as it was provided as positive feedback to me when I received the offer)

    Data interview went pretty deep as we began talking about shuffle, join optimisations and things like this. My domain knowledge is strong in this area so I did very well here

    They made me an offer about a few days after the finals which I accepted

    Overall a great experience

Work isn’t somewhere you go, it’s something you do. Some of us work better in the office. Some of us are more productive at home. And many of us find we’re most effective when we have options. Here at Spotify, we don’t just recognize that one-desk-doesn’t-fit-all. We celebrate it with a Work From Anywhere Program that allows you to do just that. We believe we’re happier and more productive when we have the freedom to choose where we work. It helps us find better ways to communicate and collaborate with one another. It means we can work with the very best people for the job, regardless of what city or country they call home. It helps us to become a more diverse place to work - a place that can flex with our people as their lives and ambitions change. And perhaps best of all, it supports a better work-life balance. A life-work balance.
