Detta jobb är inaktivt och går inte att söka längre.

About the job

At Viaplay, we entertain millions of people every day through our streaming services, radio networks, TV channels, and production companies. From live sports and films to music and our own original shows, our purpose is to tell stories, touch lives and expand worlds. We’re now launching our Viaplay streaming service in a wide range of new markets and aiming to become the international streaming challenger. As a Nordic company with a global perspective and clear values, we’re looking for the best people to join us on our journey.

Are you a curious person, searching for variation and challenges on multiple technical platforms? Always wanted to go serverless? Great, then we could have a match! We are looking for a Backend Developer for our small but experienced Monetization team in Stockholm. If you believe you have what it takes – we are waiting for your application!

The position

As a backend Developer in the Monetization team, you will be focusing on supporting the ad-founded business such as Viaplay Server Side Ad Insertion and NENT Sports Video Network. Working in a tight team with 3 developers, you will primarily focus on building and maintaining backend services to support the lifecycle of the Sports Video Network partners. It is important that you are comfortable working in collaboration with other developers as well as independently. As a small team, it is also vital to be solution-oriented and take responsibility of deliverables.

We thrive in using the latest technology, always keeping up to date and constantly challenging the status quo. The backend microservices are written in Node.js - all services are running on AWS

The journey ahead

You will be a vital part of a cross-functional team fully responsible for the AdTech solutions in NENT. Apart from Developers, the team also consists of a Domain Architect and AdTech specialist focused on ad decisioning and surrounding technologies. This is a team with end-to-end ownership of their services and your work will have a large impact on the roadmap and the choice of technical solutions.

In other words, if you are into working in an innovative way and done with just delivering on Jira tickets all day - we have an offer you can’t refuse!

Some of your daily tasks will include:

  • Building backend services in Node.js with high uptime and availability
  • Microservice/Serverless architecture
  • Using multiple programming paradigms and languages
  • Flexible production environment supported by Docker hosted in the Amazon Cloud
  • Improving our product iterations based on consumer feedback and behavior data.
  • Have contact with internal stakeholders to understand their needs and how we as a team can support them in the best possible way
What we are looking for

We believe that you are currently working as a Backend Developer with focus on Node.js, probably having a couple of years of work-life experience, and are excited about continuous improvement of workflows and quality-oriented practices. Your everyday work will include development as well as taking ownership of technical design, complexity assessment, test, and deployment. You will develop engineering solutions that are aligned with technical- and product long-term visions. We would also like you to push forward internal development by sharing knowledge and keeping on top of the latest technologies.

Ideal candidates also meet the following requirements:

  • Solid work-life experience developing web-based services, using Node.js.
  • Good understanding of REST API.
  • Knowledge of the AWS environment and services (S3, SQS, Lambda, DynamoDB, ElasticSearch)
  • Understanding of test- or behavior-driven development (TDD/BDD) including supporting frameworks.
  • Experience of Functional Programming paradigm
  • Team-oriented with a dedication to unit testing, code review, and other quality-oriented practices
  • Enthusiasm for Agile software development

Bonus requirements that will make you stand out from the rest:

  • Experience working with a state-less and high transactional end-user product.
  • Experience of working with Python
  • Experience of working with some modern frontend frameworks, such as React.js.
We offer you
  • Freedom to try out new things and independent decision-making by our autonomous teams.
  • We build everything in-house with cutting-edge technologies.
  • A place to grow and learn from our mistakes. We have a learning and development-focused environment with an emphasis on knowledge sharing, training, and regular internal technical talks.
  • An innovative environment with hack days two times a year.
  • An international and diverse environment with people from all over the world working here. We have 45+ different nationalities in the company coming from different backgrounds.
  • An attractive offer with a beneficial occupational pension plan, insurance plan, health care, 30 days of paid vacation, flexible work hours and parental leave pay lift.
