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, serving more than 600 000 users on major match days. 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 8 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.

  • Build frontend React components to be used both internally and externally by other teams in Schibsted.

  • Use Kubernetes via AWS EKS to deploy and orchestrate a microservice fleet.

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.

  • 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 and React.

  • 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.

What we offer:

  • 10% of working hours to be spent on personal development (typically every other Friday).

  • Regular Hackathons.

  • Conference budget for both external and internal conferences.

  • 2 extra vacation days (27 in total).

  • Great pension scheme.

  • Excellent equipment with a choice of laptop (Mac, Windows or Linux) and mobile phone (iPhone or Android).

  • Central location of office in downtown Oslo, right beside the Stortinget and five minutes walking distance from Oslo S.

  • Buffet lunch served every day for a discounted price.

  • International work environment.

  • In-house gym.
