SVT Play in Stockholm is now looking for a frontend developer who wants to work with one of the most used and loved digital products in the Nordics! Everyday four million users in Sweden enjoys our services. As an frontend developer here, you will be able to improve our products and continue to deliver first class experience to all users. 


You will be part of the TV Team who are responsible for the apps in the TV experience area  i.e Apple TV, Android TV and in this case the Smart TV app. Working within Public Service means that the focus is not primarily on generating revenue, but our goal is to improve the experience for our users. As an frontend developer you will have a central role in this work, and you will have freedom to take your own initiatives within your domain to achieve it.

You will become an important part of an agile organization where we have a strong belief that the best solution is the result of collaboration and openness to new ideas and experiments. If you also enjoy working in cross-functional teams, you will love working here! We really like working in mob- or pair constellations.


You will be given a key role working with our Smart TV app in the TV Team. Among other things, you will:

- Not being afraid of digging into specs since working in the Smart TV-area is more unexplored than usual web development. Get to the source to get it done properly!

- Generate ideas of experiments you can try out on the platform in close collaboration with the designers and QA.

- Make sure to own the solution all the way from CSS to the server.


At SVT Play there are currently five teams and you will belong to the TV Team. This is a cross-functional team consisting of developers of different flavours, UX- and Visual designers, QA, and a product owner. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with the team members of the others like the Mobile- and Content Discovery team, where you together strive to develop our product. 

You will be one out of four persons working with the Smart-TV experience. The team prefers working with mob- or pairprogramming as their process. 


You are a driven developer and structured developer with frontend knowledge in for example React and Typescript. You are passionate about creating a world class product together with your colleagues. You are curious both on a technical and personal level and likes sharing your knowledge with others. 

Experience of usability tests, test driven development and large app development will come in handy here but is not critical. A for effort if you have an interest or experience in the video and Smart TV-domain. The most important thing, however, is your drive and motivation to learn new things in order to do a good job.


Well, now you will have to hit the apply button and make sure to get the role. We are evaluating the candidates continuously.  If you have questions you can always call Anders Jöfelt, 0705-701075 or email him at firstname.lastname at or why not Jenny Wester on display below.
