Java Developer

Are you keen on being in the forefront and have a great interest in Java Development? Wonderful, then we already have something in common! We are looking for a Java Developer with a curious mind to solve fun and complex problems in our office in Stockholm. If you think this description fits you, be sure to send us your application!

The position

By being part of our cross-functional Java Team you will take responsibility and pitch in where needed as a valued member of an autonomous team that gets to work with the fun stuff! We work with Java and some Node.js in a micro services architecture that runs in AWS. An example on some bleeding-edge tech we are working with would be Java 11, REST, HATEOS, Maven, Spring, SparkJava, Vert.X and we are always open to try out new stuff. In this role you would be working in a cross-functional team (client and backend development, QA, UI/UX) with a main focus to deliver business-critical services to bring value to our customers. Doing so by creating new end-to-end features and continuously adding functionality to the Viaplay product in an iterative way.

We feel our culture is modern with a relaxed atmosphere, where the technical teams are prestigeless, problem solving oriented, flexible and where we want everyone to feel at home and we certainly hope that you will too. Viaplay takes pride in being an innovative company, with eyes and mindset on bleeding edge technology and where test-driven development & continuous deployments are central in the deployment process. Oh, and we build our whole product here in-house. In short. We have an offer you can't refuse!

  • Design, build, and maintain APIs, and services
  • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack
  • Work with engineers across the company to build new features at large-scale
  • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes
  • IAM (Identity and Access Management)
  • Commerce (e.g. signup, backend purchase flows, payment meta-data such as pricing etc)
  • Identifying and improving parts of the services to make them more robust, resilient and scalable
  • Deploy services in Amazon AWS and monitor rollouts and everyday service behaviour using Splunk, Grafana and AWS tools
  • Running services on your local machine using Docker for some serious testing sessions
  • Identifying, improving and implementing service metrics using Prometheus
  • Going bananas trying out some new cool programming language, technology, tool or framework during our recurring Viaplay Hack Days

What we are looking for

As a Java Developer at Viaplay, you will be an important contributor in expanding our APIs and building (micro)services for our platform. Ideally we are looking for someone that is well versed in the Java landscape but who is not afraid to try out new programming languages. Also, someone that has experience in problem solving regarding performance, resilience, scalability etc. If you in addition to this feel comfortable and enjoy working in an open climate where you find solutions to problems together we would be super happy!

Successful candidates also meet the following requirements:
