Finn Notifications

Who we are

FINN.no is a hugely popular classifieds site in Norway. Our site is visited by more than a million users each day. That is one of five Norwegians checking in to find their next job, apartment, car, sofa, or maybe just browsing and dreaming of their next vacation. We have a brand and a mission that makes a significant social difference – that, and the fact that we also have a cutting edge technical organization. We care a lot about our craft, always helping each other to become better at it.

FINN has a blameless culture, encouraging people to take action. If something goes wrong, we learn from it and move on. We believe that if we never fail, we don’t experiment enough. We test, we fail, and we learn. Also, we encourage you to have fun while doing it!

About the project and the team

You will join FINN’s first team in Poland – this team is responsible for our notifications platform, pushing more than 100 million notifications each day. Many teams already use the notifications platform as an essential building block to reach their business goals, and we believe its importance will only grow. We also own a frontend part of it.

The team consists of a Product Manager, Engineering Manager, one UX, and three backend developers. Pair programming and thorough code reviews are a part of our daily work.

Some key technologies we use: Kotlin for backend, React for frontend, Kafka for communication between services, Postgres, Kubernetes, Travis, and Google Cloud Platform.

You will collaborate closely with the Product Manager, UX, and other teams to understand the needs and requirements. Your goal will be to develop and improve our notifications frontend microservice as well as introduce the rest of the team to the frontend world. In return, we will help you to join our backend train, so eventually, you will become a fullstack developer.

About you

You are, apart from being a frontend developer, also interested in developing backend applications using Kotlin and Java on GCP stack and in being involved in the development process as a whole, from the idea stage to launching it in production.

You have

  • Experience with frontend development using JavaScript and React
  • Willingness to learn backend development using Kotlin
  • Passion for learning and experimenting with new technologies
  • Understanding of concepts and optionally an experience with continuous deployment and testing

Things which may be helpful, but we are able to teach you them:

  • Knowledge of backend development using Java/Kotlin
  • Knowledge of SQL, especially PostgreSQL

We are curious to get to know you and thus will ask you a few questions about your experience, motivation and expectations, as well as tell you more about Schibsted and our projects.

Team fit interview

Have a chance to meet the Product or Engineering Manager you will be working with. During this step we'll focus mostly on soft topics - your work style, approach to software development and other.
