We give our people the freedom to work where they work best, wherever that may be.
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.
Title:Choose your location
Stay where you are or make a change. We’re flexible when it comes to our people moving locations within their region. If it makes sense for your role, we can explore that during the interview process.
Title:Choose your work mode
You can choose to spend the majority of your time in the environment that suits you. That could mean a Spotify office, a co-working space, or your own home. Simply put, you work where you work best.
With Covid-19, how is Spotify handling going into the office and vaccines?
Safety is our top priority. Many of our offices are open but in a limited capacity for those that wish to come in.
We strongly encourage all to get the vaccine against Covid-19. We follow all local legislation when it comes to vaccine mandates.
Can I really work from anywhere?
We believe in offering our people the freedom to choose where they work. This means that for the majority of roles you can choose to work from home or in the office. You may even be able to work in a different city or country than your team as long as you’re based in the same region and it makes sense for your role. We’ll discuss your options with you before you join. In the meantime, you can see a list of our regions here.
Can I work remotely anywhere in the world?
We need to respect the challenges that come with working in different time zones. So for now, we can only support remote working within the region your role is based. For example, if your role is based in Stockholm, you may be eligible to work remotely within Europe. There are a few things to consider though. To comply with local laws, Spotify must be a registered entity in the country you wish to work. You’ll also need to have all the necessary visas and documentation to work in the location of your choice. And of course, any changes will need to be discussed and approved by your manager to ensure it makes sense for your team and role. If you do wish to move region, you can apply for a new role in that region and go through the recruitment process as usual. Rest assured, we’ll discuss all the options available to you before you join.
Will Spotify support me with office equipment if I choose to work from home?
Of course. We’ll make sure your home working space meets the needs of your role and offer you the same or similar equipment you’d enjoy at the office.
Will I get access to the same learning opportunities if I choose to work remotely?
Absolutely! In keeping with our distributed-first mindset, the majority of our learning and development activities happen online. This ranges from live and virtual facilitator-led sessions to online courses and tutorials for self-led learning.

How do you maintain belonging in a virtual world?
We want everyone who works here to feel like they belong, whether they spend the majority of their time at home or in the office. We’ve adapted how we carry out our work in this area, shifting the focus from in-person events to virtual experiences that create opportunities for community and belonging and celebrate different cultural moments throughout the year. We’re working closely with our growing number of employee resource groups to find new ways to amplify our culture in a virtual world and are dedicated to doing so without compromising our work on accelerating representation.
Work From Anywhere is the future of working at Spotify. And we’re pretty excited about it. If you want to know more about our reasons behind making the change to dynamic working, and how we think it’ll benefit our people and our business, then head to our dedicated HR blog.
