At Viaplay Group, we entertain millions of people every day through our streaming services, radio networks, TV channels and production studios. We believe in the power of content not just as a way of telling stories and touching lives, but also expanding worlds.
We may have started in the Nordics, but we have a global mindset and consider ourselves to be the international streaming challenger. This means we’re constantly launching our Viaplay streaming service in new markets and on the lookout for talented, curious, driven professionals to join us on our journey.
Right now, we’re searching for an iOS Platform Developer in our Stockholm office – are you ready to hit play on an exciting career change?
The teams mission is to provide a stable, scalable service with high-profile events in mind, think live sports. Even in the case of a subsystem failure, the service degrades gracefully on the critical user journeys.
We are working with a variety of tasks requiring complex problem-solving skills. We are involved in the development of services that require a high degree of scalability, performance and fault tolerance. We work with both iOS, Android and Web and love our backend technologies and have deep knowledge about the impact of clients in a highly scalable tech stack. We thrive when working with troubleshooting/debugging HTTP status codes and headers.
You will be working in a team contributing with your experience and skill set to solve the mission to build a highly scalable and robust platform. You will be working closely within a small team where everyone counts and relies on each other to solve complex problems.
What we’re looking for
We understand you may feel confident ticking certain boxes more than others and that’s why we always keep an open mind in our recruitment process. But, in order to thrive in this role, we do believe you’ll have at least some experience in the following:
- Familiar and comfortable programming with more than one programming language.
- Coding and debugging skills, especially with Swift/Objective-C.
- Metrics driven and wants to drive improvements in app performance and quality.
- Not afraid to challenge existing solutions and rebuild whenever needed.
It’s a bonus if you have:
- Familiarity with one or more languages/platforms: Node.js, Rust, Java/Kotlin.
- Understand the Linux OS, its kernel and file system.
- A can-do attitude, sense of humor and the ability to work humbly with others.
We’ve got the basics covered (and then some)! 30 days of paid vacation every year, flexible work arrangements and extra compensation on top of a parental pay lift.
Your wellbeing matters. We have an attractive pension and insurance scheme with full health care coverage should you need it.
A safe space to grow and up-skill with the freedom to try new things in autonomous teams. Our learning culture puts you in the driver’s seat of your own development, while always making sure you feel supported with regular knowledge-sharing sessions, technical training, mentorship opportunities and peer-to-peer networks.
An innovative environment with Hack Days, not once, but twice a year. This week-long initiative allows you to think outside the box and deliver creative, technical solutions that (more often than not) go on to be implemented, either in our product or our ways of working.
A genuinely international and diverse group of colleagues to connect with. We’re striving towards a 50:50 gender balance & we’re not far off – plus last time we checked, we have more than 60 different nationalities across our nine offices!
Entertainment is what we love, and entertainment is what we do. So, unlimited access to Viaplay seems only fair for you to get to know the product – including live sports & pay per view events, new release movie rentals, linear channels and more.
