Who we are
In Aftonbladet Product & Tech we provide the 4 million daily users of Aftonbladet with a superior news experience through digital products. With our exceptional journalism, high editorial independence and strong digital development we keep making Sweden a little better, the world a little more comprehensible and life a little easier.

The editorial tech team at Aftonbladet is looking for a Swedish speaking backend/full-stack software engineer who is interested in collaborating with journalists and news desks to create engaging and innovative visual storytelling applications. You will develop applications, data visualisation, frameworks and libraries, maps, as well as reusable components and tools.

A big focus of the team recently has been visualisations and statistics about the invasion in Ukraine but we also create sport features and investigative journalism. Looking ahead, a big thing will be the Swedish election in 2022. Our guiding principle is to create an extraordinary user experience for our readers, and this is a big part of branding Aftonbladet as an innovative and exciting newspaper.

We work with short development cycles where the focus is on speed of delivery and quality of execution. Our development cycles can also at times be changed by ongoing news events. You will work with the whole development cycle, from ideas and design input to implementation of backend and frontend. You will also develop longer term frameworks and reusable tools for visualizing data and supporting digital storytelling.

The ideal candidate will have experience of working with databases and APIs, both consuming and creating. Most server side code is built on Node.js using JavaScript and TypeScript. Experience with other languages such as PHP and Python is also a merit. Preferably the candidate will also have experience with various cloud service providers, primarily AWS. Understanding of UX and frontend is also a merit. There are three experienced frontend developers in the team already and we are looking for you with more experience and knowledge within the backend!

Relevant skills and experience

  • Experience of working with JavaScript front-end and server-side applications.

  • Strong understanding of databases, API:s, caching and other backend/infrastructure topics.

  • Understanding concepts and experience with continuous deployment.

  • You follow current events and news and have thoughts and ideas on how to develop visual storytelling and data-driven stories.

  • You have a minimum of four years of work experience within software development.

Personal qualifications

  • You are a natural and effective problem-solver. This requires a solution-oriented mindset, even in challenging situations.

  • You display a high degree of effective, proactive communication, both verbally and in written form.

  • You thrive in a working environment where some colleagues don’t have the same technical background as yourself, some of them being journalists.

  • You always consider what’s best for the company when making technology decisions.
