Job Description

Do you want to be part of shaping the live sports experience of tomorrow?

Sports team is part of Schibsted’s Media Product & Technology division and responsible for VG Live and Aftonbladet Målservice services, as well as Sports data API platform. VG Live holds a leading position for live scores and statistics in Norway, on average serving more than 200 000 users every day. Aftonbladet Målservice is aiming for a similar position in Sweden.

As a full-stack JavaScript developer, you will be a vital part of our tightly knit cross-discipline team of 9 people based in Krakow and Oslo. You will have the possibility to apply your diverse skillset to create one of the most popular live sports web destinations in Norway and Sweden onboarding new datasets, adding new user-facing features and scaling the backend to the peak load for Manchester United vs Rosenborg game

Here is a taste of what you would be able to work on:

  • Build resilient Node.js services consuming third-party APIs
  • Massage, transform and store all-things-sports data using loosely-coupled microservice architecture based on SNS/SQS, PostgreSQL and Redis.
  • Design, document, operate and evolve general-purpose and BFF APIs using Hapi and Joi.
  • Deliver instant push updates to tens of thousands of browsers and our mobile app using Websockets and MQTT.
  • Use Kubernetes via AWS EKS to deploy and orchestrate a microservice fleet.
  • Build snappy and feature-rich user-facing frontends as well as tools for internal use using React/redux-saga and webpack.

Your daily agenda will include not just writing the maintainable and well-tested code — you’d work closely with our Product Manager and UX manager, take part in feature and architectural discussions and brainstorming meetings, join virtual pair-programming sessions, help our stakeholders in the newspapers to get the best possible match coverage.

What will make you a great candidate?

  • You value feature-rich products and happy users over perfect code.
  • You appreciate effective solutions over workarounds.
  • You can express your thoughts clearly and objectively regardless of the medium: at a whiteboard, in Slack or a PR review.
  • You don’t shy away from operating the system you have built.
  • Technical skills:
    • Hands-on with Node.js.
    • Strong proficiency with modern EcmaScript.
    • Experience with RDBMS (PostgreSQL or similar) and NoSQL databases.
    • Understanding the nature of asynchronous programming, its good and bad parts.
    • Hands-on expertise with building (and consuming!) scalable APIs.
    • Experience in designing and developing loosely coupled microservice architectures.
    • Basic understanding of security principles.

Extra bonus points if:

  • You’re interested in DevOps and know how to build services using AWS.
  • You know React.
  • You’ve been a part of a team building a high-load service.
