About The Position
Accedo: For all video service providers embracing change
Accedo is the trusted video experience transformation pioneer improving the lives of video consumers by the hundreds of millions.
Over the years, Accedo has earned the trust of the world’s leading video service providers – customers to whom two goals are paramount: explore new opportunities to monetise video and transform video services to meet rapidly changing consumer expectations. Accedo customers include global video service leaders like NBCUniversal, Fox, Disney, HBO, Telefonica, Deutsche Telekom and Netflix, among many others.
The company was founded in 2004 on a simple observation: emerging technologies will transform how people watch television and consume video, but video service providers will struggle to keep up with the complexities of the new landscape.
This insight has led Accedo to create a single, modular cloud platform for building, transforming and growing state of the art video experiences. By using Accedo customers shorten time-to-market, improve operational agility and efficiency and boost monetisation capabilities.
The company is growing rapidly, powering thousands of video experiences across tens of platforms for hundreds of customers all over the world.
At Accedo, we are all pioneers, changing when, where and how millions of people experience entertainment across the globe. The impact we have on the lives of TV and video consumers everywhere is the reason we go to work everyday and we are now looking for new talent to join our journey of innovation.
We are located at Magnus Ladulåsgatan 65 (behind Medborgarplatsen) ,Stockholm.
We are looking for Senior Software Engineers that will strengthen our product engineering team and contribute in accelerating the work on our Cloud Platform - backend web services, systems and infrastructure that power the Accedo One video experience platform.
You will play a key role in designing, building and maintaining large-scale, high availability back-end applications and own the platform infrastructure including AWS services, build pipelines and more.
You will also be responsible for promoting a sound engineering culture through active technical leadership and hands-on development.
With 500+ million devices, 200+ million unique users powered by our Accedo One platform, we handle millions of API requests every minute. That means that high performance, scalability and resource & cost efficiency are of high importance to us, so we continue to innovate on our platform and improve existing parts.
Our team members like to choose the best tools for the job, which means we work with a large collection of micro-services with modern tech stack. We write largest part of our backend in Go and heavily use gRPC and AWS cloud services. We also have a ‘devops’-mindset and take full responsibility for the entire stack, from development to production - ‘we build and we run it’.
When we do not work on improving the video experience of millions of people, you might find the team engaged in the foosball or video game office championships or joining the off-sites for some fun times outside the office. We also like casual beers after work and our office at Medborgarplatsen gives us a lot of places to explore. Just check out our Instagram where you can get a glimpse of how we have fun at Accedo.
For this particular role, we’re looking for candidates who have worked with Go services built on top of a Public Cloud (preferably AWS). You should also have:
- Great knowledge with production experience of Go
- Experience building secure and stable high-concurrency systems with very strict high-availability and low-latency requirements
- Experience building systems running on top of AWS and utilising variety of AWS services
- Solid application performance tuning experience
- Strong system / service development experience
- Solid understanding of engineering methodologies, practices and tools
- Experience with a wide variety of backend technologies, databases and architecture trade-offs
- Experience integrating open source or 3rd party API’s and libraries
- Ability to communicate seamlessly with engineers, operations teams, and designers
- Proven experience with live debugging and incident resolution
