We want to connect to millions of people with their favourite songs and create a service that people love to use. We believe music should be easily accessible and that listening to music will make people live richer lives. We want to create a win-win situation for people who love listening to music and people who love creating music.

This is a great opportunity for iOS­ developers with an eye for great UX and a passion for delivering great features. You’ll be working with a world-class team of engineers, designers and product managers striving to create the best mobile client for old and new Spotify users alike - and we expect no less from you. You should have an insatiable hunger for learning new things, and a strong appetite for iterating quickly, measuring and learning from your work.

If you’re the right person for us you pay attention to details and take great pride in your work. You’ll help us make the Spotify mobile apps even better, whether it`s implementing new features, improving performance of existing features or making sure that the user interface is top-notch.

Extras

  • iPhone/iPad apps in the App Store that you can show us.
