Who we are
The CNP API team is a crucial part of the Core News Product organization. Core News Product is a modern multi-tenant publishing platform used by more than 50 brands within the Schibsted News Media. It provides hundreds of Schisted journalists with digital tools to create and manage news content that reaches most of the Scandinavian population.
The CNP API team consists of 8 backend developers and is distributed between Kraków and Stockholm. We own and operate an ecosystem of more than 50 backend services that support the CMS (Content Management System) where the news is created and, on the other side, distribute the created content to the outside world. We do not only facilitate content creation but also discover what’s going on in the world at any given moment and provide this information to our users. We do this by constantly scanning and collecting information from hundreds of news outlets around the world.

Our mission is to build tools and experiences that make independent journalism thrive. Our goal is to onboard all the Schibsted publications to the platform. Likely we’ll go be beyond that and offer our solutions to other Scandinavian media houses. We want to facilitate experimentation and make Core News Product a true platform for innovations.
We value simplicity. We believe that simplicity is a prerequisite for reliability. We want the solutions we deliver to be simple, reliable, and scalable. We review all the code before it goes to the master branch and is automatically deployed. We deploy code many times a day and it takes ~5 min for a deploy to reach production.
We value your time. We want you to control your own time, be productive, and have large chunks of time to do the real work. We favor communicating via GitHub (issues/pull requests) over Slack and meetings to avoid intrusive interruptions and make discussions searchable and shareable.
We believe in collective code ownership. You’re allowed to do work throughout the whole system. You’re always allowed to ask someone for help, review, or brainstorm. We’re not perfectionists but you need a very good and immediate reason to write bad code, a vague feeling of pressure or lethargy is not enough. We believe that correctness always trumps speed. Be prepared that your solutions and ideas will be challenged in order to provide the best possible end result.
We believe in ‘You Build It, You Run It’. We take pride in our code and we take responsibility for it. We operate the infrastructure ourselves and automate where possible to provide the best development experience.
