At Storytel we believe that powerful stories add an extra dimension to life. We offer hundreds of thousands of audiobooks and ebooks to customers in 16 markets, with several new markets launching in the coming year. Storytel is Northern Europe's largest audiobook streaming service and we are now looking for an engaged and curious  person to join our team.


We have our headquarters on Riddarholmen in Stockholm but our teams are distributed geographically between Stockholm, Lund, Umeå, Copenhagen and Karlstad. Due to renovation of our office at Riddarholmen, a part of the Stockholm team is temporary located in awesome office spaces at Slussen.

About the role

As a developer in any of our Tech Teams at Storytel, this role will be based on your skills and interests. The tech department is divided in 3 different focus areas: Markets, Content and Users.

We take a polyglot service-based approach, each deployed in containers on Kubernetes at Google Cloud. You'll find Java, C#, F# and Go happily coexisting as discrete Docker containers, each with a simple purpose and role. We develop our applications natively for Android, iOS and other platforms and consider user experience our highest priority.
