JavaScript Fullstack Developer (SPP Interact)

Our apps are used by more than 20 biggest news sites across Norway and Sweden ( multiple integrations with another 40 smaller to come in 2021) with the largest one having bigger website traffic than FB in Norway.


We are creating an environment for open debate, letting our readers share their opinion on topics that matter and battling their FOMO with high speed news.


We have been developing many awesome applications:

Core Live - a real-time reporting tool allowing users to get up to date with the latest news in a matter of seconds. By utilizing WebSockets we average around 15k concurrent connections at any given moment with peaks up to 70k when the news gets real hot.

Core Comments - a plug & play react/redux app which enables adding comments below news articles. Today we are serving 700k users with around 20 million requests hitting our comments APIs every single day.

Core Moderation - a swiss army knife that helps us keep high quality of the debate, fight trolls and block spammers. We’ve recently introduced a machine learning model for automatic acceptance of comments, currently handling more than 60% of them.

Core Reviews - a soon to be released platform for community reviews giving users a chance to brag or vent about products, recipes, movies or places they have strong opinions about.

...and many more.


We mostly use Javascript in our applications: We are “ Hapi ” with Node.js on the server-side, React with a smile on the client-side and always validate our data with Joi. That said, we also try to experiment and challenge our own technology choices as much as possible. We care deeply about UI and UX and use HTML5 and CSS-in-JS to make the user experience as good as possible.

We follow best practices like testing our code, taking advantage of continuous integration and utilizing cloud platforms like AWS and Heroku via Terraform. We use both relational and document databases and we love Postgres. Our architecture is based on microservices and is working closely with other Schibsted APIs.

We also try to stick with best practices and use Github to organize our code, Zenhub to organize our tasks, and Scrum as a methodology to organize our workflow.
