Backend Developer – Financial services Area - Connect Finance

Hi. We’re looking for a new backend developer for the Financial services area - Connect Finance team


What we do 


We’re building the Financial Platform that closes the gap between our Product teams and the Finance team. This way we enable our product to grow freely and our Finance team to keep the pace. 

In our systems we have a zero fault tolerance while handling millions of events per day. Scalability and monitoring are crucial, testing is as important as production code itself and we write code for the developers that will come, not simply code that works. 


What you’ll do 


We own our success, but we also own our misstakes, so as a backend developer you’re expected to contribute not only to all aspects of backend, but also to all aspects of software engineering: infra, data, application, deployment, monitoring, architecture, code reviews, pair and mob programming, etc. We own everything we do.

Who you are 


You’re reliable. You’re curious and bold. You think about the next developer. You share your knowledge, experience and opinions, but you understand and respect that the last word comes from the team. You make it fun. 


The skills you need to succeed 


We believe in using the best tools for the task. We continuously review our toolkit, architecture and ways of working, and we’re open to new tools and frameworks. 

Today we work with Java 14, Dropwizard, Wildfly, Docker, Terraform, PostgreSQL. Everything is hosted on Amazon Web Services.
