Java backend developer for our R&D team!


Video is eating the world. From entertainment to industry, video is found everywhere, and more people than ever create video content. The amount of video created every day put heavy demand on the underlying platforms, while the need to quickly turn your raw content into compelling stories is greater than ever.


Vidispine the company
Vidispine is a fast-growing IT company with offices in Kista and Umeå. We develop advanced systems for video and image management, powering large media production systems around the globe. The base of our business is an API-based video platform that our customers build into their video production workflows. The Vidispine platform powers production systems on all continents of the world, serving thousands of users with millions of files. We have been awarded the DI Gasell award for being one of the fastest growing companies in Sweden two years in a row, 2017 and 2018.


Your Role
You will be working as a backend developer mainly with Java where you will further be developing the Vidispine API. Responsibilities include:

  • Building reusable code for a future use. We have put it a few hundred man-years of effort in the code base. No spaghetti code here!
  • Writing code for maximum speed and scalability. Each customer stores millions of media assets in our systems. Each asset can be in the petabyte range.
  • Write secure code for maximum data protection. The customer's data can be the next blockbuster.
  • Implement solutions that can run natively on the cloud as well as on-premise.


Skills and technologies that are relevant, although not all are requirements (we strongly believe in people that have the right base knowledge and are quick learners):

  • Java EE
  • Dropwizard, Jersey
  • AWS/Azure
  • Docker/Kubernetes
  • Python
  • Django
  • Vue


Who are you
You are a creative person that wants to drive the company and products that you are working on forward. You are driven and independent, and like taking on new challenges and learning new techniques and tools. You have experience with both backend and frontend web development, either as you have a few years of work experience, or because you enjoy programming and do so already.


Team R&D
The R&D team is in charge of four of our products, Vidispine Server, our API-based media asset management platform; Vidixplore, our software as a service offering for content management in the browser; Vidispine Development Toolkit, a toolkit for developers who want to build applications on top of Vidispine; and Vidinet, media services as a service that scales from trial to global implementations. An awesome team, working with cool technologies and work tasks.
