Engineering Manager - Viaplay

Detta jobb är inaktivt och går inte att söka längre.

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? We have a great journey ahead where we will launch our fantastic product in 10 new markets in Europe and the US. 

We’re now looking for an Engineering Manager to join our team. Are you our next colleague? 

The position

You will join a team of well versed, forward-thinking and humorous Engineering Managers, and together you will create the best place to work in the Nordic tech market!  

In the role as Engineering Manager, you will lead a couple of our Viaplay Engineering teams. Our product development process is driven by autonomous cross-functional teams. The day-to-day work is led by a Product Manager who owns the backlog and focuses on the product initiatives. Your role as Engineering Manager will be to manage and coach the teams, drive personal and professional growth and make our co-workers feel happy, appreciated and listened to. We are, in other words, looking for an Engineering Manager to focus on people management rather than technical management.

Fun facts about us: we normally develop our whole product in-house in our office at Ringvägen 52, but currently in a remote setup with ambitions on a flexible work environment going forward. We use methods like Product Discovery to make sure we create products that our customer loves. We work with cutting edge technology and believe in putting innovation in the heart of things in order to create the best possible streaming product out there. We are investing a lot in our culture and our ambition is to create and maintain an environment where everyone can relax, be themselves, grow and be challenged. Join us today and help us transform the world of entertainment!  

The journey ahead

With expansion in mind, we are a growing organisation hiring both locally and globally. Our organisation recently went through a change in our way of working; from technical platform teams to autonomous cross-functional product teams. This has provided us with some challenges, but also loads of learnings and opportunities. We are currently finding our optimal way of working. Some of your future challenges in this role will be:  

  • Driving staffing and recruitment for our teams together with other Engineering Managers. 
  • Support client- and backend developers as well as experts within user behaviour tracking and experiments (A/B testing) reporting to you through coaching and mentoring and creating opportunities for them to grow.  
  • Apply a servant leadership mindset to grow high performing teams.  
  • Work closely to a couple of agile product teams with a customer-first mindset.  
  • Guide teams in continuous improvement, team dynamics and successful execution.  
  • Collaborate with the Product Managers to set a direction for your teams.  
  • Working across the engineering organisation together with other Engineering Managers to increase autonomy and improve ways of working.   
  • Wary about employee well-being.  
What we are looking for 

To be our new Engineering Manager, we believe that you are an experienced leader in the technology industry. You thrive in daily interactions with your teams and like to find new ways to do your job in an even better way. If you also, just like us, like to have fun at work and share energy - we might have a match!   

Successful candidates also meet the following requirements:  

  • Experience from leading roles in an expanding tech organisation.  
  • Experienced in leading, coaching and mentoring individuals and teams.  
  • Knowledgeable about product development and have a user-centric approach 
  • You want to challenge yourself and us by questioning status quo.  
  • Solid experience of working in an agile environment.  
  • Previously worked with people from different backgrounds, having other views and finding it inspiring.  
  • You are a practitioner of systems thinking and you’re curious about getting a deeper perspective on how things influence each other in a system. 

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

  • Experience from the media industry.  
  • Experience from knowledge-sharing patterns and practices in a product organisation.  


What we offer you 
  • 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, demos, mentorship program and guilds. 
  • An innovative environment with Hack Days two times a year.  
  • An international and diverse environment with people from all over the world working here. We have 35+ different nationalities in the team coming from different backgrounds.
  • An attractive offer with a beneficial occupational pension plan, insurance plan, health care, 30 days of paid vacation, flexible work hours and parental leave pay lift.
