Gothenburg: Junior Platform Engineer

  • Gothenburg
  • Gothenburg

At Meltwater we’re creating the next generation media intelligence solutions for a global client base. We’re an international company with engineering offices on 3 continents and sales offices all over the world.

In this role you will be working as a member of an experienced distributed team (located in Gothenburg, Sweden and Budapest, Hungary) building a platform for our engineers to make the journey of code to production easier. By providing the best tools, services and solutions you will help shape the future of Meltwater’s developer experience.

We run on AWS and provide a deployment platform running on hundreds of Kubernetes nodes, hosting thousands of containerized applications. On our telemetry platform we collect and index in Elasticsearch hundreds of thousands of events per second and terabytes of data per day.

On the software side, the languages we most often code in are Python, Go, Shell and Typescript.

This role would be a good fit for someone who:

  • Has an appetite for learning and trying new things. We encourage research, experimentation and we value learning from failure as much as success. If you do as well, then you’ll have a lot of opportunities here.
  • Loves creating a good developer experience. You’ll be working with some of the most important tools developers at Meltwater use every day, so you’ll do well if you can approach problems from the users’ perspective.
  • Enjoys collaboration. We build our solutions in tight collaboration with other engineering teams as customers, so if you enjoy sitting together to understand the problem and brainstorm a solution, you will thrive in this position.
  • Values clear, open communication. We see clear and thoughtful communication (including a willingness to give & receive feedback) as a fundamental engineering skill.
  • Can carry a conversation in English. Given the distributed nature of the team and the company, English is our primary language.
  • Likes being a generalist. We’re a small team, so there will be plenty of opportunities to touch all levels of the stack — the ideal candidate would enjoy a bit of variety in their work.
  • Has some experience. For this position 1+ years of experience would be great, but fresh graduates or candidates with equivalent foundational computer science or software engineering knowledge are also welcome.

Meltwater truly believes that people with different backgrounds and perspectives will make our environment better and raise the quality of our products. We’re actively working with diversity and inclusion and encourage everybody to join us in our journey!

Addendum: In a world not dealing with a pandemic you will have opportunities to travel to meet your colleagues. At the moment we are all remote first, and we are evaluating how to learn from the positives of this in a post-Corona world.
