The Position

As a Frontend Developer at Viaplay, you will work with the web solutions for our Smart TV platforms. This means developing some of the most used platforms within Viaplay, and you will work together with other highly motivated developers to build robust and well-structured services for the Viaplay technical platform. You will build web-based interfaces and applications and contribute to our platforms, APIs and libraries. Your work will be a part of Viaplay’s strategy to grow and continue to bring an innovative first-class streaming service to our customers.

Our technical teams are prestigeless, problem solving oriented and flexible. We take pride in being an inventive company and we use bleeding-edge technology.
