About the job

Would you like to be part of building the most sought-after streaming service in the Nordics – with the ambition to become the European streaming champion? Launching our fantastic product in new markets is a NENT corporate strategy and a top priority.

Working as a Principal Mobile Engineer at Viaplay, you will actively drive and participate in conversations regarding the tech vision to ensure that we develop the mobile platform to meet the challenges of a continuously growing user base. With your passion for technical leadership and willingness to act as a role model for others, you will be an advocate for the developer community and facilitate the development of technical strategies in your domain. 

You will join a cross-functional team and deliver engineering solutions aligned with technical and product long-term visions. We build our entire product in-house with apps in native languages such as Swift and Kotlin and a microservice backend on Node.js in AWS. We strongly believe that being on the edge of things when it comes to technology is crucial, always keeping ourselves up to date and constantly challenging the status quo. As Principal Engineer, you will play an important role in this by bringing clarity to complexity and demonstrate smart ways of ensuring that we build a world-class streaming experience.

  • Develop and drive technical strategy across teams and product areas.  
  • Act as a mentor and coach others to grow and improve their craftsmanship. 
  • Instigate product iterations based on consumer feedback and behaviour data.

We believe that you are currently working in a role as Principal Engineer, Technical Lead, Technical Director or Technical Architect, and have experience of working with a variety of challenges requiring complex technical problems.
