Tobias was in his early 20s when he joined Spotify, he was made responsible for the user interface design of the Spotify apps. Designing Spotify on everything from iOS and Android to Windows and obscure stereos, over the next few years his life turned into a crash course in how to build a successful product and startup. At this point, the entire product team fit around a small table, and the design team was made up of two people: Andrea Rosengren and Tobias.
Today, Spotify is the world’s most popular music streaming service with over 60 million paying customers, and with a product design team of over 100 people. Tobias regards himself as lucky to take part in that journey. After leaving Spotify he moved from Stockholm to San Francisco and GitHub and took up front-end development. In 2017 Tobias joined Mojang to lead the experience design of Minecraft, also joining the jury of the Swedish Design Awards.
