Are you obsessed with technology and excited by the fast-paced evolution of the streaming industry? Awesome. Then you’ve come to the right place. We are looking for skilled and knowledge-hungry Tech Trainees to our Stockholm office to start working with our Viaplay & Viafree products. This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss out on; to challenge yourself and kickstart your career.
ARE YOU OUR NEXT TECH TRAINEE?
As a Tech Trainee, you will be part of shaping the future of streaming and entertainment. You will join the Nordic Entertainment Group’s Product, Data & Tech organisation and, over the course of one year, work as a contributing team member in several of our cross-functional development teams. You will be covering all areas of the product development lifecycle, from cloud engineering and DevOps to backend development of our micro-services and client-side development of our web and mobile applications.
You will also get to pursue your own projects with the support of a dedicated mentor, who will be by your side throughout the year. Together, you will work within different technical areas to expose yourself to new ideas and develop your understanding of software engineering as much as possible. As a trainee, you will also get the chance to work closely with five other tech trainees, as a way of drawing insights from one another.
The position itself is a 12-month paid contract from August 2020 to August 2021, with the possibility of converting into a permanent position. By the end of your traineeship, we believe you will be able to take on the role of an autonomous software engineer, who can navigate your way through different teams to drive results across multiple technical platforms. If you would rather specialize within one field of technical expertise, that is of course a possibility as well. Sounds cool, right?
