About the Company

Appland AB provides “Netflix for Mobile Games”. The consumer gets free access to the best Android mobile games in the world (Disney, Electronic Arts, etc.). We have removed all ads and in-app purchases, and instead the consumer pays a monthly fee. The service is delivered to 60 mobile operators and handset manufacturers worldwide.

The Company was incorporated 2011 in Gothenburg, Sweden, where it is headquartered and lead development is based.




Why Appland?

You get to work with friendly passionate people, who all are highly skilled in their line of work. We are proud to maintain a culture where everybody fits in and has a voice. On top of this, you get great insurances, pension, gym card and the best view of Gothenburg harbor (between Järntorget and Stenpiren).


About the Position

We have a flexible dynamic team of great programmers, who handles everything from hosting, backend and frontend development (both web and native Android). We are SCRUM fanatics (sprint 176 now!) and love creating disruptive software innovations with a team effort!

The cloud software platform is today hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and can handle 200+ million users. We want to also offer it as an on-premises service, meaning that we need to migrate the software platform to a new hosting environment and develop some of AWS’s services for scaling. The team that handles this, needs reinforcement and this is where you start your journey at Appland!
