Do you bask in the glory of frontend frameworks? Is Github one of your main go-to websites? Cool beans, then we could have a match! We are looking for a Frontend Developer to build strong frontend components here in our office in Stockholm. Is this the match made in heaven you were waiting for? Great, send us your CV today!

The position

As a Frontend developer at Viaplay, you will be focusing on the development of the web platform for the leading online video on demand service in Northern Europe. You will be building strong and high performing web-based interfaces and applications and contribute to our platforms, APIs and libraries. Your work will be a part of Viaplay’s strategy to grow and continue to bring an innovative first class streaming service to our customers. 

We thrive in using cutting edge technology, always keeping up to date and constantly challenging the status quo. The Viaplay web app is, in short, a dockerized React app running on AWS. It employs functional, declarative and reactive patterns to render data from our Node.js and Java microservices. We love composability and are slightly addicted to Ramda and Recompose. Also, we build our whole product here in-house. And in this role you would be involved in the whole product development life-cycle. Sounds cool, right? 

The challenge ahead

You will join a kick-ass cross-functional team (client and backend development, QA, UI/UX, product management) and deliver engineering solutions aligned with technical and product long-term visions. The team delivers on clear goals based on our customer journey and are fully autonomous in how to create the best solutions to reach their goals. In other words, if you are into working in an innovative way and done with just delivering on Jira tickets all day - we have an offer you can’t refuse! 

Some of your daily challenges will include:

  • Running and taking ownership of technical design, complexity assessment, development, test and deployment. 
  • Building strong and high performing frontend components in React
  • Driving our product iterations based on consumer feedback and behaviour data
  • Collaboration with other teams in a fast-paced and agile development process

What we are looking for

You are an experienced developer and have worked with a variety of tasks requiring complex problem solving using JavaScript. You have been involved in the development of services that require a high degree of scalability, performance and fault tolerance. If you also have strong communication skills and excellent analytical skills, we’d be really happy!

Successful candidates also meet the following requirements:

  • Deep knowledge and experience in JavaScript
  • Strong experience with React and Redux
  • Experience of Functional Programming concept
  • Experience creating responsive, device-agnostic interfaces via progressive enhancement
  • Team player with dedication to unit testing, code review and other quality-oriented practices
  • Enthusiasm for Agile software development

Bonus requirements that will make you stand out from the rest:

  • Knowledge about Node.js ecosystem and microservices
  • Experience with Reactive Programming concept and Rx.js
  • Extensive experience in modern architecture patterns

We offer you

  • Freedom to try out new things and independent decision-making by our autonomous teams.
  • We build everything in-house with cutting edge technologies.
  • We inspire others and share knowledge openly.
  • A place to grow and learn from our mistakes. We have a learning and development focused environment with an emphasis on knowledge sharing, training and regular internal technical talks.
  • An innovative environment with hack days two times a year.
  • An international and diverse environment with people from all over the world working here. We have 35+ different nationalities in the office coming from different backgrounds. 
  • An attractive offer with a beneficial occupational pension plan, insurance plan, health care, 30 days of paid vacation, flexible work hours and parental leave pay lift.

Our HQ is in Stockholm, but our market is the Nordics. You will become part of an amazing company with great people, content and culture. If this feels like your kind of challenge, please apply and attach your CV and cover letter. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our recruiter Lisa Sindsjö at lisa.sindsjo@nentgroup.com.
