About the project and the team
Today more than 9 million users in Norway and Sweden have a Schibsted account and over 100 sites using it today, spanning over both Schibsted divisions Media and Marketplaces in Norway and Sweden. The journey from an unknown user to a paying subscriber is at the core of our digital business models, and Schibsted Account is a fundamental pillar for this purpose will the ultimate goal of building simple, safe and frictionless experiences for our users.
Our aim is to build the final destination for Brand specific services and Schibsted global functions. We operate at the core of Schibsted’s digital business model and are responsible for empowering users to handle account settings, subscriptions and payments, site settings, profile and privacy controls.
We are a distributed team located in Oslo and Kraków, operating independently within the Schibsted group. How to organize the work and what tools to use is up to us and we have a big influence on what’s being built. We have a modern microservice architecture, managing and deploying all apps ourselves.
Skills and requirements
- We use mostly React, ES 6/7, Typescript, SASS, Babel and Webpack on the front, while Node.js (Hapi.js) is our backend language. But we also try to experiment and challenge our own technology choices as much as possible. We care deeply about UI and UX, and use HTML5 and CSS3 to make the user experience as good as possible.
- In our development process we take advantage of unit, integration and smoke testing with the help of continuous integration tools (Travis) and utilize cloud platforms like AWS and Heroku.
- We follow best practices like TDD approach and mob programming.
- We apply Scrum and Kanban methodologies in our daily workflow.
