Tired of wasting time deciding what movie or show to watch? So were we, and that’s why we built Playpilot - the ultimate streaming guide that helps you quickly find the best titles from Netflix, HBO Nordic, Amazon Prime Video, and more than 25 other services. We are tackling a problem that most people experience everyday, and the more streaming services that launch, the bigger the problem becomes. Our user-base has grown more than 400% over the last year and we are only getting started. We are looking for more top-talent to help us scale fast, and if you think that's you - make sure to apply below!


We integrate with all connected services through a sophisticated indexing-/matching engine (built in-house). This engine is the core of our product and developing it is challenging work, involving real-time mapping of massive amounts of unstructured data from hundreds of sources, across a large number of markets.

We are currently expanding outside of Scandinavia (UK is the next market) and are in need of a senior developer that can further develop our database infrastructure, our indexing engine as well as integrate new data sources.
