Marcin Floryan

Director of Engineering @Spotify

Marcin Floryan is a passionate technology leader creating an environment where people can apply their skills and experience working together towards a shared goal. He cares about sustainable, continuous and frequent delivery of value and helps teams take pride in the quality of the solutions they build.

He sees engineering teams as complex adaptive systems and thus works by applying principles and practices from the domains of agile, lean, systems thinking, and similar to allow for the desirable outcomes to emerge in presence of sensible guiding constraints.

Marcin is striving to be an inclusive and compassionate leader who cares about creating an environment of psychological safety where failure is encouraged and used as an opportunity to learn, where people can fully be themselves and where diverse opinions are encouraged and conflict seen as a healthy opportunity for learning and growth.

For the past 3  years, Marcin has the role of Director of Engineering in the Playback Tribe at Spotify. He is also a regular speaker at international conferences, sharing from his experience insights and practical knowledge.
