At Storytel, we believe that powerful stories add an extra dimension to life. Storytel is one of the world’s leading audiobook and ebook streaming services, and we offer unlimited listening to consumers in 25+ markets. Our vision is to make the world a more empathetic and creative place, with great stories to be shared and enjoyed by anyone, anywhere, anytime.

About The Team

The Experience team focuses on delivering the most reliable and seamless audio and ebook experiences to millions of users. Software Engineers collaborate closely with Mobile/Web/Machine Learning Engineers, Designers, Researchers, Curators, Product Managers, and Engineering Managers to build and maintain end-to-end solutions. It is a cross-functional team, responsible for the whole development cycle, from discovery and ideation, and implementation to shipping and learning.

The team focuses on the most user-facing parts of Storytel’s product, which includes audio and ebook streaming, content exploration and recommendations, search, user libraries, and more.

We are as passionate about the customer experience as we are about the technologies that drive our product.

About The Role

Take the next step in your career as an experienced Software Engineer at Storytel! You will work with cutting-edge technologies alongside experienced colleagues. As a Software Engineer focusing on Backend, you will be involved in – and have the opportunity to drive some of – our initiatives to continue developing our product differentiation and user engagement.

You will maintain services using Java, Go, and Kotlin, all deployed in Kubernetes on the Google Cloud Platform. The team also owns several solutions built on top of Elastic search, and collaborates closely with the Machine Learning team to bring a personalised experience to our users.

Besides working with your closest colleagues, you will often interact with other engineering teams, and other functions such as Content Management, Customer Support, and more.

About You

To be successful in this role, we believe that:

  • You have a solid knowledge of backend development in Java, and, ideally, experience with other languages and environments – today we maintain distributed services mostly in Java, Go, and Kotlin.
  • You have a good understanding of modern architecture, system design, data structures and software engineering principles, and understanding how to apply them to design scalable and robust solutions.
  • You are comfortable with deploying and operating services in a cloud environment (we use Google’s Cloud Platform, but experience from other platforms is also valuable).
  • You are a team player who thrives in a collaborative environment, and can also work well autonomously and can get things done when required.
  • You enjoy both experimentation and building smaller features as well as doing bigger infrastructure improvement work.
  • You have experience working closely with business and product stakeholders, and understanding their needs – and you are able to go from the idea stage to scalable and maintainable solutions.
  • You are passionate about building great products that people love, and you always make technology choices with this end-goal in mind.
  • You believe in iteration and know that finding the right solution is more important than being quick about it.

But most importantly, we believe that the right mindset and attitude are more valuable than ticking all the technical boxes, so if you feel that this could be the right job and environment for you to learn in and develop yourself, and achieve great things alongside others in the team, do not hesitate to get in touch with us!

What we offer

At Storytel, we trust our employees and believe in their autonomy. We offer flexible working hours, remote working possibilities, and flexible public holidays for people to celebrate what they genuinely believe in.

Storytel’s culture encourages self-leadership, innovation, and collaboration – our employees are passionate about high-quality content and stories. There is a strong emphasis on continuous development, learning through experimentation, and actively sharing feedback to constantly improve performance.

Storytel offers a friendly, entrepreneurial and fast-moving work environment where new ideas and creativity are welcomed. We like doing things in new ways and questioning old methods. The Storytel culture is vital to us, characterised by being welcoming and helpful. We don’t believe in hierarchy and micromanagement; we highly believe in giving responsibility and having people grow alongside it. We have a solid compensation & benefits package offering.

If you feel like Storytel is a place where you could thrive, please submit your application in English, and we will contact you as soon as possible.
