System developer to MittMedia and Bonniers News data team.

Do you like data science, machine learning, building pipelines and taking care of a whole data ecosystem?

MittMedia and Bonnier News is now hiring developers to our data team in Sundsvall.

The mission

Why are we doing this?

We want to be the link between events and people in the local society. With relevant content and a smooth user experience our news sites and mobile apps should be a natural part of our daily life. With our data platform we are building the brain that makes data innovations possible. We have almost 1 petabyte of data that needs to be processed, cleaned and refined into products that are used daily, real-life by millions of readers.

The teams

The data team is responsible of building MittMedias data ecosystem. We are cross-functional; we don’t like the idea of having separate maintenance- or operations teams, i.e “you build it you run it!”

We work in Kanban and try to be as agile and lean as possible, although we know it’s a direction and not a final destination. In collaboration with our product owner, we're always focusing on producing value as early and efficient as possible. We're constantly trying to get better, cut down on unnecessary meetings and adapt our process to our needs. We like flow and avoid disturbing our developers when they're working on something that demands concentration.

Sometimes we gather the whole team in a room and code together. It’s called mob programming and is particularly efficient when we’re stuck with a very hard problem or want to spread knowledge within the team, programming in pairs also helps when an extra boost of skills are required. We always do code reviews where we give constructive feedback on the code in order to maximize learning, build the best product possible and avoid technical debt.

The technology

The data platform is built upon a wide variety of technologies. Our data pipelines are developed in Python using Apache Airflow which is a platform to write, run and monitor tasks. The data platform also includes applications written in Ruby and NodeJS. We develop serverless application and run them, along with our data pipelines in Amazon cloud, AWS.

We use Amazon S3 as our data lake and Amazon Redshift as data warehouse. In order to process and clean all the data for analysis and machine learning, we often use SQL or Python. The machine learning is done with popular libraries as tensorflow, keras and scikit.
