Engineering areas

CLOUD PLATFORM

From cluster management (Docker, Mesos, Marathon), service discovery, request routing, edge network computing and delivery pipelines up to distributed tracing. A platform for scalable microservice architectures in multiple locations, forming public, private and hybrid clouds.

SECURITY

Customers having confidence in our platforms is a key success factor, and an important aspect is security. This area will provide tooling and services (access console, vulnerability scanning and management, secure libraries) to enable teams to operate in a secure way and create secure software.

SITE RELIABILITY

Develop effective tooling, alerts, and responses to anticipate, identify and address reliability risks. Participate in on-call rotation with other teams in the Performance and Reliability Teams. Engage with product engineering teams to triage production outages and carry forward action items to improve ongoing reliability. Define and evangelize cloud-related optimizations and best practices to improve reliability and performance.

ENGINEERING PRODUCTIVITY

Whether it is Engineering metrics, Source code management tooling, Build Systems, IDEs, Training, Frameworks or all kinds of testing toolkits. Everything needed to delight engineers and enable them to be really efficient.

DEVELOPER RELATIONS

Making complex technology easy to understand to any audience. Scaling out support proactively to users globally, establishing 2-way communication channels between developers (API design, consistency, stability, strategies, roadmap, timelines, transparency, bugs, feature requests). Encourage and embrace third-party developer contributions.

GLOBAL COMPONENTS

Due to the massive scale and reach of Schibsted, our engineers see their code in use all over the globe, by millions of end users. Our talented engineers build world class SDKs and services, which other developers build on top of, to tackle real world, difficult business problems. For example, messaging, notifications, big data storage, and many other challenges at a very big scale. There are more services to come!

Data Science areas

INSIGHTS

One of the goals of the data science team is to understand who our users are and how they behave on our sites. Our current focus is to study the dynamics of user acquisition and user retention through advanced analysis using statistical and machine learning techniques.

PERSONALIZATION

Personalization is key when it comes to offering great and unique experiences to our users. We rely on innovative techniques from a variety of fields including data mining, machine learning and information retrieval in order to help our users discover relevant content that they want to engage with.

USER MODELING

We apply machine learning techniques on user behavior data to predict demographic traits, audience segments, detect abnormal activity, and much more. We have built a machine learning pipeline that relies on a distributed architecture that processes billions of events on a daily basis.

UX areas

INTERACTION / PRODUCT DESIGN

Interaction/Product design creates the interactions our users have with our products including: the controls, mechanisms, and processes that users require to perform their tasks and meet their goals. Our designers must synthesise user insights to create user flows, wireframes, information architecture and interface mockups that all add up to amazing products. You get impatient if you are not continuously sketching concepts, tweaking flows or polishing our designs and contribute to conceptual big-thinking

UX RESEARCH

Researchers help product teams establish facts and find problems in their products as well as ensure that user input is integrated into our product lifecycle. UX research turns user insights around needs and pain points into usable and actionable artifacts that impact how we build our products.

OPTIMISATION

Performance analysis and optimisation of our products is needed to ensure the solutions we implement are actually working for our users. Optimisation specialists work as part of the team to provide tracking requirements, analytics and recommendations for product optimisation, UX prioritisation, conversions tracking, user growth and user satisfaction

VISUAL DESIGN

Our visual design team has a passion for making our products truly come to life and maintaining world class usability in a beautiful and engaging way. They take concepts and interface mockups to the next level by adding in the aesthetics of a user interface, ensuring that it looks good, communicates the right image to users, and conforms to any brand guidelines.
