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. 

We are now looking for a new Backend Developer to help us grow the platform, enhance our user experience and create the next generation of streaming services. Are you our next colleague?

The position

The Market Expansion team is set up with four Backend Developers and three Platform Developers (Android, iOS and Big screen). Our mission is, in an iterative manner, to conquer new markets with a product that scales and adapts to become a sought-after international player. We do this in an efficient manner and for each market entry, we learn and improve to ensure that the effort and time to market is decreasing every time.

With expansion in mind, our top priority is to have a scalable and resilient platform. Since all the members of the team will work with and drive the architectural decisions and suggestions related to market expansion, you will have great opportunities to grow and challenge yourself. You will learn all about the different parts of our product and have lots of complex problems to analyze and discuss and solve together within your team and together with other stakeholders.

The challenge ahead

During 2021, we will bring Viaplay to the Baltics, Poland and the US. You will join the Market expansion team and deliver engineering solutions aligned with technical and product long-term visions.

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 challenges will include:

  • Building strong and high performing micro-services in Node.js running in AWS.
  • Using multiple programming paradigms and languages.
  • Flexible production environment supported by Docker hosted in the Amazon Cloud.
  • An agile development process where we promote pair/mob programming.
  • Driving our product iterations based on consumer feedback and behaviour data.
What we are looking for

We are looking for a passionate developer with a genuine interest in software development and an ambition to constantly improve your skills. You have 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! You will be part of a team that makes things happen in a brilliant and self-driven manner.

Successful candidates also meet the following requirements:

  • Solid work-life 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.
  • Interest and motivation to work with modern frameworks.
  • A team player that wants to grow within the craftmanship. 

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

  • Knowledge in Java is nice to have, but not mandatory.
  • Some type of leadership experience, being a tech lead or similar.
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 when working here are:   

  • 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 hackdays two times a year.
