Any Spotify employees out there willing to help?

I’m overqualified for roles I’m applying to at Spotify but can’t seem to get even a first interview. I keep getting the automatic rejection. Any tips/ advice/ referral you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Gotta know someone to get in, tech is a cult. Seen it first hand.

I would but now is really poor timing, I reckon it will take some time for market conditions to get better for hiring.

Fwiw I never got interviews with referrals, I got reached out to by a recruiter (I do assume they had my CV on file).

My personal experience with Spotify has been very interesting. Around May-June they had numerous open roles that I applied to and all of which I got interviews, with only one referral. however the remote chooses were very limited to Midwest-East only so I had to drop them seeing I am on west coast and not able to relocate.

I am well qualified, have had a referral, even know recruiters personally but still got the rejection email this second round of applying recently and I think it has to do with two things that I’ve observed:

1. Recruiting process is bad. It seems like the recruiters there do not communicate with one another, hence do not process candidates adequately. This can result in Dropping top candidates unintentionally, ghosting candidates, not giving candidates clear information (I didnt know if I would be called on my phone # or in a virtual meet).

2. The economic climate is very intense right now for tech roles. Which makes sourcing candidates all the more difficult, which also results in the following results I’ve mentioned before.

Good luck!

Go work at a FAANG company first and then you’ll get an interview - tbh any well respected big tech will do it

You’re competing against insane competition right now - think about how many FAANG and other top tech people were laid off and are applying to roles at Spotify. It’s really rough right now in the market and even if you’re 150% qualified for the role, it might not be enough at the moment. Hopefully it gets better later this year.

I've gotten interviews by referrals. Def helps to have an in. Good luck

Do you have someone you know that would refer or even review a resume for feedback ?

Was referred for a PM role about a week ago and haven’t heard a thing, definitely qualified for the role.

Any tips on how to connect and get that initial interview other than “be referred”. ie seek out an internal recruiter or something

Nice I’m a PM too and looking for someone to refer me but hard to find.

When he sent the confirmation email it stated Angular/Java. I told him that I don’t have much Java skills. He then sent this (pic) as a response. 🤔🤔🤔
When I spoke to the client she had no idea why the recruiter added angular react as it was just a Java developer position, Completely wasted so much time
