Spotify is hiring a

Senior QA

Stockholm, Sweden

We are looking for QAs to be a quality evangelist that supports development teams at all stages

Depending on your experience and your area of interest you'll either work as a QA in a development team or work cross-functionally with quality on a more strategic, holistic level.

As a team member in one of our development teams you know that testing and improving quality of what is produced is not mainly about finding bugs or reporting pass rates for test cases. It is about things like finding and communicating risks, helping your fellow developers find weaknesses and inconsistencies in the way the code works, connecting what is committed to what is actually delivered and being the user's eyes and ears where the magic happens. A QA at Spotify knows that tours, charters, scripted testing, playbooks, test reports etc... are all tools to reach goals and not to cover your back. We value interactions over processes and tools, and working software over comprehensive documentation.

What you'll do

  • Coach and guide our development teams to deliver a world class product with high quality
  • Make sure quality and testing is part of the development work from day one
    Constantly seek opportunities to improve our quality and testing approach
  • Plan, lead and follow up on quality related activities
  • Track and communicate quality issues
  • Help maintain visualizations of quality

Who you are

  • Having a few years of work experience in software development with some of those testing at a company with a product as complex as Spotify's.
  • Having experience leading quality improvements in an agile environment.
  • Having an agile mindset, fast to adapt to constant changes and feeling comfortable with it.
  • Focused on what is most important at all times, realising when to change the game plan and when to stick to it.
  • Good at communicating, both within and outside the team.  
  • Love coaching others, inspire and explore new ways of working

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

People who meet us tend to comment on our energy, and the passion we have for what we’re doing. We hope it’s infectious! At such a fast moving company you’ll find opportunities rather than boundaries in every single role.

We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better workplace for our employees and a better product for our users and our creators. This is something we value deeply and we encourage everyone to come be a part of changing the way the world listens to music.
