Telenor Software Lab is looking for a senior backend developer to strengthen the backend team of Min Sky Telenors’ cloud storage solution for images and videos. The service has hundreds of thousands of users, receives several million uploads pr. day, and stores billions of files. We need you to help us do this (and more), even faster and safer. The backend touches most points of the service, and makes for a varied working environment.  

Development is done in Python 3. Our developers use the operating system they are most comfortable with and choose their own hardware. You have root access to your own computer. 

You will be working in an environment of Python, Postgres and Docker. These are technologies that you need to be very comfortable with. 

About you

  • You enjoy working with a highly skilled team to create good, testable, and well structured code. 
  • You have experience with working on complex projects, and you can make valuable contributions to improve the quality and structure of code written by other developers.

Qualifications wanted for the role

  • 3-5 years of relevant education. Experience and skills can compensate for formal education.
  • 5+ years of relevant experience. 
  • Genuine interest in programming. 
  • High level of proficiency using Python, Postgres, Docker, and the *nix command line. 
  • Experience with Ansible and Kubernetes is a plus.

What we offer

  • Telenor Software Lab offers an interesting and challenging environment with great colleagues. We aim to develop ourselves professionally through hackathons, conferences and we have extensive access to e-learning platforms as well. 40 working hours each year are set aside to educate yourself within a topic of your choice. 
  • We take pride in our work and want to learn from our mistakes, and practice blameless post mortems. Everyone makes mistakes, the only sin is to not talk about them. 
  • We value a good work / life balance and very rarely use overtime. 

We accept and process applications continuously. Your request will be handled with utmost confidentiality. Are you curious about Telenor Software Lab as a company and the position? Please do not hesitate to reach out for questions and an uncommitted chat!
