I am interviewing at Spotify and recently I received en email about my on-site agenda, there the recruiter mentioned “we do not use Mac computers”. Is this true that at Spotify they don’t use MacBooks ?

Spotify devs don’t use macs ?

    We use macs, Linux, windows, and whatever else we please or is needed to do the job. Name the recruiter because they don’t know what’s they’re talking about.

      I guess they mean that there won't be mac for the interview. I'd guess that about 95% in my BU use mac, the rest maintain their own Linux setup

    Would estimate 90%+ Macs for developers

    Not all Spotify developers use emacs. There are plenty of vim fans.

    Their CEO did have a beef with Tim Apple. Do they use Linux laptops then?

    Unless you’re building native apps for a specific platform, does it matter?

    Been here for years can't name a single dev using anything but Apple.

    Considering they still have that Windows only bug where your playlists won’t sync from other devices, that seems kinda sad
