Team Tech Lead – Royalties

The Royalty Engineering team, also known as RoaR, is part of Spotify’s Finance but has a strong tech culture. Being in this space puts us as a team in the path of many overarching initiatives in the company with many challenging and hard technical problems to solve. We are now looking for a skilled and motivated Team Tech Lead who can further strengthen our team and help us grow even more.

Working with royalties means that we make sure that the rights holders (record labels, publishers and collecting societies) are getting paid correctly for all the content that is streamed every day on Spotify. In addition to that, we are responsible for verifying publishing claims and processing huge amounts of data into detailed reports required by Spotify’s licensors to run their business.

Our focus right now is the rebuild of our 10-year-old tech stack, which is being built in parallel with us maintaining the current system. We also need to ensure a smooth transition from the current system to the new platform.

We are here to revolutionize the music industry.
