Job description

What will you do? ✍️

Implement secure, reliable and scalable solutions will be on top of your priorities! Your work will focus on improving our technical architecture and developing end-to-end features, and you'll be responsible of all aspects of them: technical design, development, testing, documentation, deployment, maintainability.
You will also be a mentor for the junior members of the team and show them how you can ship beautiful code in a blink ;)

You will be part of one of our squads (1 Product Manager / 1 Product Designer / 4 Developers) that hates the comfort zone, moves fast and deals with trade-offs all the time.
And because your work is not only about writing code, you will be a great team player with a high degree of collaboration: making the team better everyday is your mantra!
Needless to say that by joining our team as software engineer you'll get to work closely with anyone across the company and every decision you'll make may have a huge impact. Exciting, isn't it?

Our stack

  • React and Redux for our front-end
  • Babel and Webpack to transpile ES6 code
  • Sass for CSS processing
  • Native mobile apps (Swift and Kotlin)
  • Node.js for our backend applications
  • REST and GraphQL APIs
  • MySQL for data storage, Redis for some cache
  • Travis CI for continuous integration and AWS for hosting

  • Good knowledge in micro-services architectures
  • Good knowledge in relational databases concepts and SQL

Your personality

  • You are a HACKER: you are comfortable with ambiguity, you love technical challenges, to prototype and to find creative ways to solve problems in the shortest timeframe.
  • You are a DOER: “tomorrow” is not part of your vocabulary. You get shit done!

We are looking for talented and passionate engineers to help us build and scale our application. If you love building and designing efficient and reliable products and mentoring people this job may well be for you! Having a 1st work experience in a FinTech start-up is a plus 😉
