Schibsted Marketplaces empower the world’s economy and promote sustainability by enabling anyone to sell and everyone to buy, connecting people to new opportunities and great deals every day. Our goal is to provide fantastic value to all of our 30 million daily users across 22 countries, with effective and safe online classified ads, creating perfect matches on the world's most trusted marketplaces.
Platform Services provides a common platform and tooling to Schibsted, as well as providing a central point for guidance on technical matters. Our systems are global-scale deployments of different services such as developer productivity tools, image and message processing systems, active and passive security scanning, big data and Map Reduce clusters, messaging brokers, databases and NoSQL backends and more. We support hundreds of services and hundreds of instances for our millions of consumers, using service discovery systems, autoscaling, dynamic load balancing and routing.
Scientists and engineers in our data teams work to make hundreds of millions of user behaviour events from all around the world understandable for analysts and business users in the company, daily. This large data set is also one of the most diverse data sets in the world and we work with the latest data technologies (Spark, AWS services, Kafka). Tens of thousands of tasks are ran every day to handle data processing jobs at this scale.
Platform Services also centrally develops and supports delivery pipelines, build systems, metrics and monitoring systems, support more than a thousand developers and develop dozens of developer productivity utilities to have our developers code more with less hassle. At all times our engineers are just a git clone away from real code and our teams are active contributors to several public OSS projects.
