“What still surprises me at Rovio is how helpful and relaxed everybody is, even though our schedule can be quite tight. ”
We are looking for a seriously talented server developer for our awesome team in Espoo, Finland, to work on high quality and very visible products in Rovio’s new Media unit.
Rovio Media is a place for both creative and technically oriented people combining talents from wide variety of people, from composers and animation artists to backend and client developers making the media we create visible to our fans. We are looking for you to join our Channels R&D team in this unit, which provides digital distribution channels for our content from end to end.
Currently we have two channels. ToonsTV you might have heard of: We launched our Angry Birds animation series in March 2013 and broke a BILLION VIEWS only some six months later! Afterwards we’ve been developing our content management systems to handle 3rd party content to add our catalog and included of course more seasons of Rovio’s delightful content like Piggy Tales, Stella and of course Angry Birds Season 2. Oh, and we passed the 4 BILLION mark already!
Ruffle is our latest baby - or channel if you please - that is all about gaming. Ruffle features content from the best gamers out there as well as some exclusive behind the scenes material. Our goal is to make Ruffle THE destination for millennials who enjoy mobile gaming. Excited? We are, too!
On the server side we have a highly scalable, modern technology stack supporting our channels backend, which takes care of numerous things such as filtering, scheduling and generally serving millions of requests per day with high availability and robust design. The Channels backend is the backbone of our clients to guarantee them with low latency and fast end-to-end experience. Your job is to help us develop the service even better in every respect by not only implementing new features or fixing defects, but to participate actively on the architecture design, component choices and overall planning on how things work smoothly and in good co-operation towards the REST of our cloud based infrastructure. If you get the pun and know who JSON is, then you already know some of the technologies we use and embrace. And if you prefer your Java beans in an espresso machine instead of an enterprise container and you’re afraid of being driven over by a service bus, we think you might enjoy your stay with us and feel safe.
