Schibsted Video Portal Team

About the project 

SVIP is today serving VGTV – Norway’s biggest web-tv channel with half a million daily viewers with 350 million video plays a year. SVIP caters for VGTV original shows, a library of over 400 documentaries, premium sport live streams and 24/7 news and sports coverage. We have recently expanded the platform to Aftonbladet TV, and established a common team with VG and Aftonbladet, in a joint effort to create the video portal for the future!

The SVIP platform has recently been rebuilt from the ground up, so you will come to a brand new and modern product that is carefully put together based on everything we have learned – successes and failures – from the last years to create a great product.

Our challenge is to continue on the great work and effort that has been put into the product and elevate it even further, to create a top tier video portal, serving the needs from the brands and most importantly our users.

Previous work with video or video platforms is no requirement, but passion for online video is definitely something we are looking for. SVIP works in close collaboration with Stream team which is Schibsted Media’s central platform for delivering video content that covers all parts of video workflow within media houses – from transcoding and ingesting live video, through enhancing video metadata, to playback and monetization.

About the Team

We’re a growing team of developers working at the Kraków office (looking for you to join us there) and Oslo where our product manager and designer are. The product is based in Oslo (VG) and Stockholm (Aftonbladet). We enjoy the alternative coffee during our frequent chats about tech-related stuff.

As a member of the team, you will be part of a high speed, inclusive and fun environment where trust, openness, collaboration, and passion is key. We are humble and care a lot about our craft, always helping each other to become better at it. We test, we fail and learn together. You can use 10% of the work time on your own projects during biweekly Lab Day. You’ll have a chance to contribute to the Chromecast receiver app and try your hand at making some of our videos interactive using timed metadata.
