Storytel is Northern Europe's largest audiobook service. We offer tens of thousands of audiobooks and ebooks in 19 countries with several new markets launching within the coming year. More than 1 000 000 subscribers worldwide use Storytel to inspire and entertain.

Storytel recently acquired the company Ztory, a Swedish magazine subscription service, and are now setting up a completely new team to focus on this new addition to the Storytel platform. For this we will be needing experienced Ruby (and Rails) developers to work alongside the core teams, both on building features that empower people to read more magazines, but also on coming up with smart solutions and ways of connecting the two platforms and create a smooth experience for customers who wants to enjoy both audiobooks and magazines. We promise a lot of fun challenges ahead and a lot of smart, friendly and fun colleagues who are eager to welcome you onboard!
