Om jobbet

Videoplaza, an Ooyala company, empowers broadcasters and video publishers to build profitable and sustainable businesses in the internet-delivered TV world.

Videoplaza’s video ad serving platform, Karbon, monetises video experiences across PCs, mobile devices, tablets, game consoles, IPTV, Smart TV and HBBTV. We help publishers and broadcasters manage, sell, optimise yield and deliver video advertising across all these environments. We are growing rapidly and have clients in more than 25 markets worldwide as well as offices across Europe, Asia and the US. Our Stockholm office is the hub for all R&D and has an international feel with colleagues from 16+ countries.

We are now looking for a skilled software engineer to join our backend team and help us shape the New TV world.

The role

Scaling our platform to handle tens of thousands of req/s with zero downtime, providing real time reports and forecasts based on billions of log rows and building a simple and intuitive UI that lets clients easily traffic their advertisement campaigns and maximize their sales; these are some of the complex challenges that make development work at Videoplaza interesting and rewarding.

As a Backend Software Engineer, you would join a team working on new features and functionality in every layer of our product, but with a clear emphasis on the backend components. Although you are likely to spend most of the time developing software relevant to your expertise, you will be exposed to and required to understand all parts of the system.

At Videoplaza we practice Agile development and rely on practices such as TDD, code reviews, continuous integration and continuous deployment. Our development teams work in an autonomous fashion, performing all steps of software development, from architecting to deployment, by themselves. The teams constantly evaluate themselves and the processes, trying to find better ways of doing things and help each other improve.

We're absolutely convinced that in order to be really good at something, you need to truly enjoy doing it. We aim to create an inspiring workplace and believe that a great atmosphere plays an important role in bringing out the very best in every individual.

Who we're looking for

Most importantly, you are an outstanding software developer. We code mostly in Java, Scala and Javascript and use databases, frameworks and tools such as Cassandra, MongoDB, RabbitMQ, Guice, Backbone.js, Git, Maven and Jenkins. Solid experience of one or more of these is no doubt a bonus however the kind of person we are looking for quickly and easily picks up new languages and frameworks.

Furthermore we insist that you have a passion for what you do and a hunger for learning new things. We constantly evaluate and try to better ourselves. We expect you to do the same and - just as important - help others improve as well.

All meetings and written communication at Videoplaza are in English. Swedish is not a requirement.

You need to be a natural fit with the Videoplaza team:

  • Entrepreneurial or intrapreneurial
  • Self-starting, driven
  • Energetic, passionate
  • Desire to learn and grow within the role

Screening by Uptrail Consulting

Om företaget

Have you ever watched a sporting event live on your computer or tablet? Or caught up on the latest videos on your phone? If so, you already know Ooyala.

The Internet has turned every device with a screen into a television with unlimited channels.

People are watching everywhere. They stream from home, from the café, from international flights. With the rise of binge-watching and catch-up TV, they’ve gotten used to watching content on their own schedule. As a result, the technology required to connect with viewers is becoming increasingly complex. That’s where Ooyala comes in.

We help our customers -- some of the largest operators, broadcasters, media companies and brands in the world -- connect viewers with their interests, audiences with relevant advertising, analytic insights to business strategies, and ultimately, video with revenue.

Ooyala captures 3.5 billion analytics events each day. Last year, Ooyala delivered video content to over 220 million unique users around the world. Those viewers played over 10 billion streams comprising almost 30 billion hours of video. And we managed inventory for 30 billion video ad impressions, and delivered over 11 billion ads.
