Identity Team

Life is more enjoyable when you share it with the right people, and the Identity team is all about making sharing simple, safe, and worthwhile.

Join us and you’ll be providing millions of people with instant access to a seamless experience across the Schibsted ecosystem. Each day we power enriched, personalized experiences for millions of people across some of the biggest Nordic brands, whilst offering a secure, central home where our users are in full control of their information.

We have a (mostly) modern tech stack which we refine and grow as we discover solutions for the situations we face. Today you will find yourself with the opportunity to work with Scala, Kotlin, Java, PHP, micro-services (with a complimentary monolith), SQL & NoSQL databases, a wide range of AWS services, Kubernetes, Terraform, as well as experiment with new technologies.

What you’ll do

  • Build microservices whilst embracing – and hopefully breaking apart – our legacy monolith
  • Evolve the authentication and authorisation flows for one of the largest login and identity solutions in the Nordics
  • Work together with Product Managers, User Experience Designers and Engineering teammates to build and improve features for Schibsted account
  • Bring forward and develop ideas which are vital to the biggest news media sites and the largest marketplaces across Norway, Sweden, and Finland
  • Contribute to engineering efforts from investigation, to design, to implementation; solving complex technical challenges along the way
  • Collaborate across teams, functions, and companies within Schibsted to create the best possible product and user experience
  • Coach others in your strengths, learn from your peers, and embrace complete ownership of our product

Skills & Requirements

  • Experience and fluency in Scala and interested in working with other JVM languages
  • Understand that all successful products have a history: you are interested in how we got to where we are today, look at what can be improved, and find ways to develop complimentary services that move us forward
  • Comfortable working in a central team which has significant impact to millions of users across all of Schibsted’s current and future companies
  • Someone who feels they have ownership of their product; you want to bring ideas to the table, you care about how our end users are affected, and you love to feel proud about what you and your team are creating
  • Want to be part of a completely autonomous, cross-functional team – so you are keen to learn and contribute in the different competences and skills your peers bring to the table – whether it is DevOps, Product, UX, or something else

Where you’ll be

We are a distributed workforce which allows us to embrace all kinds of work modes: in office, from home, or a hybrid – we offer the structured flexibility needed to work from anywhere

Where are the offices?Today we have offices in Kraków, Stockholm, Oslo, Gdansk

Application

Fill out the form and send us your CV - don't forget to mention all the things you are proud of! Once your CV is qualified for the next step of recruitment, you can expect contact from our recruiter.

Recruiter phone call

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.

Programming task (optional)

Time to show off your practical skills during a home assignment - we don't want to stress you with onsite programming. Every solution is then carefully reviewed by our technical recruiters.

Technical interview

Now let's meet face-to-face and talk about your knowledge and skills - we'll start from reviewing your task and then move forward to more complex topics. Don't forget asking questions too!

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.

Offer

Usually we need some time to summarise the process and then - yay, the offer is on the table! You have just received the opportunity to join one of our teams and work together with us :)
