About the job

At Viaplay Group, 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.

If this sounds like a challenge you’re interested in, we’re now looking for a person to strengthen the team in our office in Stockholm.

The position

As a Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) within the Content Infrastructure team you will be a key contributor to our core infrastructure, ensuring that we retain stable, up to date and modern systems to serve Viaplay Group's numerous services ranging from internal development to customer facing streaming.

You will join a team consisting of six generalists that are responsible for large parts of Viaplay Group’s core infrastructure. The team works with all three pillars of infrastructure (compute, network, and storage), which requires an open-minded approach to find unique solutions to unique tech problems. We encourage a culture of open communication and information sharing to achieve efficiency in not having to solve the same problems twice.

Examples of what we do:

  • Openstack farms, backed by Ceph
  • Responsible for internal networks and most company Internet traffic – we are a LIR, using four large providers
  • Providing multi-petabyte storage to the group 
  • Building and managing the streaming platform where all Viaplay Sports and streaming TV channels originate (ingest, caches, load balancers) 
  • We orchestrate most of it using Salt 

Technology decisions are made within the team, granting a high degree of freedom, but also the responsibility to do our due diligence in driving change within existing and new architectural challenges. You will take part in the complete flow from analyzing, implementing, and of course, governing the solutions.

We work in a rolling 24/7 oncall schedule. Once you are more comfortable with the interworkings of our systems, and received some training, you will join the rotation where you will have a week of oncall duties once every 7 to 8 weeks.

What we are looking for

You are goal-oriented, driven, and easily switches between tasks, at the same time keeping focus on completing the ongoing ones. We also believe you are accurate in your work and always set quality first.

We also value that you are easy to communicate with and have a service mindset both within your own team and towards stakeholders.

Successful candidates also meet the following requirements:

  • You should be knowledgeable working in various Linux distributions
  • You should have proficiency in a scripting or programming language, preferably in Python and/or shell
  • You should possess the ability to read and understand source code when needed
  • You should have experience in modern datacenter Layer 2 and Layer 3 networking
  • You should be familiar with several types of filesystems
  • You should be comfortable working with physical hardware

What we are saying with the above is that you need a lot of experience in different fields, but it is not necessary to be an expert in any of them. The team strives to be sysadmin fullstack – thus the most important requirement is a solid Linux base.

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

  • Docker and Kubernetes
  • OpenStack/Open Infrastructure
  • Ceph
  • ELK stack
  • Monitoring and Alerting tools
  • Configuration Management: Salt, Ansible or similar tools for automation
  • Experience with Loadbalancers and Caching
  • Driver’s license
