The interview. Your chance to get to know us. Our chance to get to know you.
I’ve got an interview! What can I expect?
The process usually goes a little something like this. First, you’ll have a video or telephone interview with one of our recruiters - a chat about you, the role, and your background. If all goes well, we’ll invite you for a second interview with one or two members of the team. The final round usually involves meeting multiple band members across the business. Don’t worry - we’ll let you know who they are at every stage, and well before time. If there are multiple interviewers, one will lead and the others will shadow. This approach allows you to meet more people across the business, and get a good feel for things, whilst also letting more band members be part of the interview process. Win-win.
Are you holding virtual interviews whilst everyone works remotely?
We are, yes. We’ve got plenty of tools in place to allow for remote interviews - things like Google Meet and Zoom for video chats, and for the more technical stuff, Coderpad and Mural.
I’ve got a virtual interview - will this impact my chances?
Simply put, it shouldn’t! We understand that interviewing over video chat is far from ideal, so don’t worry, we won’t sweat the small stuff.
Help! I can’t connect to my virtual interview
No worries, we get it. Just let your interviewers know what’s going on. If, for whatever reason, you can’t continue, send an email to everyone cc’d on your interview confirmation. That way we can reschedule for a later time or day.
Can I get feedback on my interview?
We know how important feedback can be for ongoing career development, so we’ll always do our best to provide it when and where we can. There may be some instances where giving detailed feedback just isn’t possible, but we’ll let you know if this is the case.
What if I get called to do an assessment?
As part of the next stages of the interview process, we have designed assessments to help us get a better idea of how your strengths can add to our teams and help highlight individuals whose strengths may not have been best presented during initial interviews. Read more about the assessments here.
How can I prepare for my interview?
Yes, we want you to show us you’re great at what you do. But we’re also considering a few other things: Do your values align with our values? Do you take ownership of your work and take pride in what you deliver? Are you adaptable? Are you collaborative? Are you driven? These are the questions we’ll be asking ourselves as we interview you. Make it easy for us to see how well you answer them.
Does Spotify provide reasonable accommodations during the interview process?
Of course! Please do reach out to your recruiter or recruitment coordinator about any additional needs you may have. We’re always happy to help and will do everything we can to accommodate you.
