Join us for the opportunity to directly impact the success of some of the biggest newspapers in Norway and Sweden by improving the experience for millions of daily users.
You will be a key member in a highly dedicated and competent cross-functional team. The product you will be working with offers algorithms that enable our newsrooms to optimize the content offering on their front pages through automation and personalisation, combining data science and the expertise of front editors. The goal is to deliver front pages that give the users the most important news and that are also highly engaging!
About the role, team and technology stack
You will be part of a team consisting of 6 Software Engineers, a Data Scientist, a Product Designer, an Engineering Manager and a Product Manager distributed across Poland, Sweden and Norway.
The team is responsible for both a frontend used by the editorial staff in Schibsted’s media houses as well as rankers. Based on collected data and through data processing the rankers aim to provide the most optimal order of the content shown on the front pages. Your primary responsibility will be to develop these rankers together with the team in collaboration with the Data Scientists working in the media houses.
The tech stack you will be working with consists mainly of applications for processing data, written in modern Java (17) as well as TypeScript Node.js APIs. We currently have a Kafka cluster at Aiven but everything else runs on AWS.
