CNP API

Do you want to have an impact on the shape of the mission-critical systems while working with the newest technology?

Join our API-Team as a Team Leader!

ABOUT THE TEAM

The CNP API team is a crucial part of Core News Product, residing in the Shared Products & Platforms organization (SPP). Core News Product is a modern multi-tenant publishing platform used by almost all brands within Schibsted News Media. It provides hundreds of Schibsted journalists with digital tools to create and manage news content that reaches most of the Scandinavian population.

CNP API is a team consisting of 7 backend developers and is distributed between Kraków and Stockholm. We own and operate an ecosystem of more than 50 backend services that support the CMS (Content Management System) where the news is created and, on the other side, distribute the created content to the outside world. We do not only facilitate content creation but also discover what’s going on in the world at any given moment and provide this information to our users. We do this by constantly scanning and collecting information from hundreds of news outlets around the world.

ABOUT THE ROLE

We are looking for a capable Team Leader, with a previous history of managing a team or being the Tech Lead with some people responsibility.

As a Team Leader in Shared Products & Platforms, you utilize your combined technical background and leadership skills to build, develop and maintain a high performing team. In doing so, you will be accountable for hiring and retaining Engineers in your team while fostering a work environment where they can reach their full potential.

While the managerial responsibilities are in focus for this role, we would also want you to be able to actively participate in and help facilitate technical discussions within the team. Being business-oriented and having the ability to proactively collaborate with stakeholders within the News Media organization is a must.

You will work closely with the API team’s designated Product Manager and the Technical Lead. You will also be a part of a team of highly skilled Engineering Managers where you will meet on a weekly basis to support each other and sharpen your managerial skills.
