Don’t just work here. Belong here.
You are welcome at Spotify for who you are, no matter where you come from, what you look like, or what’s playing in your headphones.
Our platform is for everyone, and so is our workplace. The more voices we have represented and amplified in our business, the more we will all contribute, thrive and be brilliant.
So bring us your personal experience, your perspectives, and your background. It’s in our differences that we will find the power to keep revolutionizing the way the world listens.
Without a diversity of instruments, a band’s output would be pretty boring. There’s a reason why your favorite band isn’t just five tubas playing at once.
How we’re doing
We want our people to feel a strong sense of belonging, regardless of what group they identify with.
Global gender data
We're honest with our data. It tells us what we're doing right and what we can do better.
US ethnicity data
We’re moving in 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%.
*Native American includes American Indian, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islanders as categorized by U.S. government reporting standards.
Actions, not just words
We all have the best intentions, but for us, that isn’t enough. To foster a diverse and inclusive culture, we’ve put a dedicated global Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging strategy into action. This is it.
Led by our band members and open to all, including our many and numerous allies, our employee resource groups elevate those voices that are under-represented in our industry or historically marginalized. They’re rhythms within our band, a place for people to share their experiences, support each other, develop leadership, and help the business better understand their needs.
