ABOUT THE PRODUCT
NWT Media is one of the largest media companies in Sweden, with 16 newspapers including print, site and apps. Every week we serve local news 24/7 to around 700 000 unique visitors.
The development department in Karlstad, Sweden includes 8 people: software developers, UX-designer and technical product owners. They work hand in hand with our 5-person team in Gdańsk , focused on developing the news presentation platform. Its purpose is to publish news for websites accessed by both mobile and desktop consumers. The entire team continuously updates the platform with new features and functionalities. As this is an in-house product , we have the comfort of full control of all stages of the software development process and life cycle.
Our main business goal is to increase digital revenues through subscriptions and ads. We also have the ambition to attract more younger readers and to build an overall larger and more loyal digital reader base.
In 2023 we are taking the next step in our long-term roadmap by focusing on personalization and an algorithmic approach around news presentation.
