Do you want to be part of shaping the live sports experience of tomorrow?
Sports team is part of Schibstedâ€™s Media Product & Technology division and responsible for VG Live and Aftonbladet MÃ¥lservice 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 MÃ¥lservice is aiming for a similar position in Sweden.
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 â€” youâ€™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?
