Job Description

We are looking for a Data Analyst Intern to join Spotify’s Legal & Internal Audit (“IA”) Systems data team within the Financial Engineering mission for the Summer of 2023. Our work-streams include driving strategic projects and implementing business processes, owning the data strategy for legal retention requirements, and producing analyses to surface insights for the Legal team and other collaborators. Because of the breadth of issues handled by this team, you will have the rare opportunity to dive deeply into data around all corners of the company.

You’ll become an active member of our team responding to Legal inquiries as they arise. It is hard to predict what we do on a day-to-day basis, but you could work on any type of matter that Legal is facing, including privacy, antitrust, or copyright. In response to these requests, you will have the opportunity to navigate Spotify’s data ecosystem and perform storytelling through the analysis and production of complex datasets. When not dealing with open matters, you will also help us manage our data infrastructure to align with legal retention requirements, and to maintain documentation for internal and outside counsel describing the Spotify approach to data storage and retention.

If you are passionate about using data to answer challenging questions and enjoy explaining complex systems to others, then this role is for you. You will be at the nexus of data analysis, science and groundbreaking tool sets at one of the most innovative and expansive data companies in the world. And above all, your work will impact the way the world experiences music.


What you'll do

  • Perform analyses on large sets of data from various sources to build analytical reports and extract insights that will help satisfy a legal data strategy.

  • Collaborate with the team’s Product Managers to prioritize work and develop a data-driven strategy for Legal and relevant business teams.

  • Partner with data engineers and scientists to build a scalable and flexible data landscape to respond to the various needs of the Legal, Compliance and Audit business teams.

  • Partner with the Legal team to provide timely, appropriate, and accurate responses to data requests from regulators, partners, litigations and policymakers.

  • Immerse yourself in Spotify’s data culture (engineering and data science) to assess new technologies and standard methodologies, and their relevance to the team’s overall scope of work.

  • Clearly communicate your work, progress and vision of the data strategy to business partners - tailoring communication as appropriate to ensure relevance to the audience.

  • Work closely with cross-functional teams of creatives, business owners, product owners, marketers, data scientists, and others across the company who are passionate about Spotify’s success.

  • Develop an understanding of Spotify’s Legal and Compliance landscape, both the current needs and future vision.

  • Take accountability for data integrity.

  • Option to work from our office in New York.

Who you are

  • You are ideally an undergraduate, graduating in 2024, with experience in data analysis. However, we welcome all education backgrounds.

  • You are excited about analyzing large amounts of data and summarizing conclusions. You are able to think about data creatively and communicate findings to a non-technical audience.

  • You are familiar with SQL, and Python is a plus. You are open to and excited about learning new tools, and you are unafraid to ask questions.

  • You enjoy problem solving and being detail oriented. You think about problems creatively and you are an excellent collaborator.

  • You have strong communication skills, including ability to speak tech to a non-tech audience and to translate complex business/legal needs into specifically-defined results.

  • You are interested in working with data producers across the organization to understand the sources and assumptions on which our data depends.


Our paid summer internships last for 10-13 weeks and start at the beginning of June. The last day to apply is February 13th, 2023 at 10 AM CET.

The United States hourly rate for this position is 33.00 USD (Undergraduate First Year & Sophomores), 42.00 USD (Undergraduate Juniors & Seniors), 49.00 USD (Masters) & 58.00 USD (PhD) per hour plus a one time intern stipend of 2,253 USD. This position is overtime eligible. These rates may be modified in the future.

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 thrive, contribute, and be forward-thinking!
