The corporate culture at Spotify is super employee-friendly. It's a high-trust environment that gives us creative types the room to do what we do best. There's a lot of tech types here and the rigor they put into projects is very inspiring and keeps you on your toes. Its also very influenced by Swedish culture, so there are a lot of spots to sit and chill and work and eat and socialize within the office because of something called fika, which I think means community. A lot of ideas and innovations organically get birthed due to that concept and vibe.
We have a lot of artists who visit and every single time they love the vibe because it's so opposite of the vibes they get when they visit other places. It's like a free-flow and vibey environment. There's nobody who works here that doesn't want to be here. We have tons of extracurricular activities too, and policies like parental leave. If you have a baby, you get six months off for paternity leave. Only a special company like this can pull that off.
