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’re looking for the best people to join us on our journey. Right now, we’re searching for a Cloud Developer in our Barcelona or Stockholm office – are you ready to hit play on an exciting career change?
We are now looking for an experienced Cloud Developer to maintain and enhance our existing Cloud Platform. Your work will ensure the continued availability of that platform which is used by 30+ development teams at Viaplay.

Our microservice platform host hundreds of different services and serves over 4 million subscribers in the Nordic markets. Your role will be crucial in maintaining the platform's reliability while we explore new ways to scale.

With your experience, you will help our internal teams host, scale, and provide value to our end viewers. Some of your daily challenges will include:
- Interacting with teams, providing cloud support, and making recommendations based on their needs
- Driving improvements to customer experience and platform performance
- Identifying, analyzing, and resolving infrastructure vulnerabilities
- Reduce the complexity and cost of Cloud infrastructure.
- Be an evangelist of sustainability principles and best practices

We’ve got the basics covered (and then some)! 30 days of paid vacation every year 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. 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.
