Back-end Developer

About us!

Vimla is not just another mobile carrier and never will be. Ever since the launch of Vimla in 2014, we've changed what people expect from a phone operator. By pushing boundaries, we have managed to become the fastest growing mobile carrier in Sweden. And more importantly, we have earned the trust and loyalty of our customers to an extent normally unheard of in our industry. This year we were even awarded Carrier of the Year based on our customer satisfaction. Things are good, but we're just getting started.

In 2019, all departments at Vimla are growing considerably.  While this gives us the opportunity to do even more interesting things, it also creates a few big challenges for our tech department, including:

  • Considerable growth in users, development team, and other departments
  • Migrating all of our customer base to a new type of telco network
  • Developing new types of services based on new telco capabilities
  • Launching a developer portal where our users can build apps on top of their phone numbers
  • Helping other departments become more efficient by making best-in-class modern tooling, including AI.
  • Building an efficient work environment for development with excellent ergonomics

The role

As software developer in Vimla, you'll join our tech-team of going on 10 people with responsibility of building our software. To do this, you'll be part of planning, designing, writing and maintaining software in close collaboration with the rest of the development team and the users.

We work with AWS, Docker swarm, Node, Typescript and React.

Main responsibilities

  • Planning, estimating and documenting software implementation
  • Writing software
  • Improving and maintaining our software development environment and tools
  • Testing software
  • Planning long-term how Vimlas software should evolve

We believe you already...

  • Know one or a few programming languages well
  • Have some professional experience as software developer
  • Have experience in working in a project
  • Know our technology stack or are willing to learn on the job

It's also a plus if you...

  • Have some domain knowledge in telco
  • Have experience with AWS, Docker, Node, Typescript or React
  • Have experience or interest in functional programming
  • Have experience in working with mobile apps

Why you want to work @ Vimla
As Vimla is currently on a really exciting growth journey, the possibilities to grow and develop with us are huge. We are a fun and close-knit team of 25 people. As part of tech, you would have the opportunity to make a big impact on our future and the future of mobile carriers. Vimla is a part of Telenor Sweden, which means we get the best of two worlds - freedom to work independently as an online startup company but with employment benefits and development opportunities offered by a large company.
