About the job

Are you curious about the world of streaming? We’re looking for a Backend Developer for our Viafree Team in Stockholm. If you believe you have what it takes - we’re waiting for your application! 

The position

As a part of NENT Group, Viafree is a first-class AVOD (Advertising Video on Demand) service available in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. We compete with some of the most innovative companies in the world and aspire to be best at what we do. We are now expanding our team with a Backend Developer to help us grow the platform, enhance our user experience and create the next generation of streaming services.

We thrive in using cutting-edge technology, with an ambition to always keeping up to date and constantly challenging the status quo. We mostly work with Node.js in a micro-services architecture which runs serverless in AWS. We build our whole product in-house and the team plays an active role in discussions on how to find the best solutions for always improving our product.

In this role, you will be involved in the whole development life cycle - from definition to release and maintenance. Being part of a cross-functional team with close collaboration and full autonomy, your everyday work will consist of development, complexity assessment, test and deployment. 

The journey ahead

We build our product with the Viafree users at heart, and through user research and A/B testing, we optimise their experience across all platforms throughout their journey. You will work within an expanding organisation that strives for excellence and take on responsibility and pitch in where needed as a valued member of an autonomous team. We truly believe in the power of working together, in a flat organisation where we help each other out and are open to learning new things. We do our best to create a relaxed atmosphere where we want everyone to feel at home and we hope that you will too.

Throughout 2021, we will focus on exploring ways to refine and improve our code while linking it to all internal services. We have an ongoing project of moving out from the old and into the new with curiosity and ambition to build a sustainable backend service.

What we are looking for

We’re looking for a passionate developer with a genuine interest in software development and the ambition to constantly improve your skills. You have previously worked with a variety of tasks requiring complex problem solving using Javascript. If you also have an interest in multiple programming languages, you will fit right in!

Successful candidates also meet the following requirements:

  • Solid work experience developing web-based services, using Node.js.
  • Good understanding of REST API.
  • Understanding of test- or behaviour-driven development (TDD/BDD), including supporting frameworks.
  • Experience in developing services in the cloud, preferably AWS.
  • An interest and motivation to work with modern frameworks.

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

  • Experience working with a state-less and high transactional end user product.
  • Experience working with some Frontend magic, such as React.js.
What we offer you

Our HQ is in Stockholm, but our market is the Nordics. You will become part of an amazing company with great people, content and culture. Some of the benefits we offer you:   

  • An agile approach, freedom to try out new things and independent decision-making by our autonomous teams.
  • 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, pair programming and mob programming.
  • An innovative environment with Hack Days twice a year. 
  • An international and diverse environment with people from all over the world. We have 35+ different nationalities coming from different backgrounds.
  • An attractive offer with a beneficial occupational pension plan, insurance plan, health care contribution, 30 days of paid vacation, flexible work hours and parental leave pay lift.
We want to hear from you!

If this feels like your kind of challenge, please apply and attach your CV or LinkedIn profile. 

With social distance in mind these days, we are currently providing a digital recruitment process which will include video interviews with the manager and team members. We will most likely provide a remote onboarding where we will do our best to make you feel included and part of our NENT family.
