Tengai Unbiased Malmö Full-time
Salary Competitive
Tengai Unbiased is an HR tech startup based in Malmö & Stockholm, developing the world’s first unbiased interview robot. The robot is challenging the traditional job interview by giving every applicant a fair evaluation while collecting objective interview data to support recruiters in their decision making. The robot is supported by a user friendly web based tool, which we just started building. We're looking for developers to join us and create history!

Your work makes a difference!

We’re looking for a backend developer to join us on our journey of using modern technology to create an unbiased, skilled-based recruitment process. Are you the next person to join our fast-growing team?


Our robot, Tengai, is already conducting interviews with candidates using the first version of its software. At the same time as we're improving the robot skills, we're also building an online web-based admin tool, Tengai Recruit. Your work would mostly evolve around backend development for Tengai Recruit. Our current backend is built upon Node.js and hosted with Docker on AWS. Although, as we are still very early in our journey, you will be able to take part in choosing the tech and tools to be used, and how to define the role. If you're interested in cloud technologies and/or operations you could focus more on one that, or if you'd like to work full-stack, the choice is yours. On the frontend, we use JavaScript, React and Typescript. The robot's software is built in Kotlin on the Furhat Robotics platform. Code reviews and tests are of course part of our development process.


The work will involve close collaboration with different parties both internally within Tengai´s product and development team and with our external partners and consultants.

Occasional travel might be required.


Since this is an early-stage start-up, we are looking for someone who enjoys the challenge of building products from scratch.

  • We don't care if you learned to program at university or on your own, but to succeed in this role you probably have some experience building backend REST APIs.

  • You like to share your knowledge.

  • You are not afraid to ask questions to team members, managers and partners.

  • You have excellent communication skills in English and comfortable with distributed teams.


  • State of the art - Tengai Unbiased is the world's first social interview robot. Join us and create history!

  • Passion - At Tengai Unbiased, you'll work with people that are passionate about what they do, continuously learning and happy to share their knowledge

  • Freedom and flexibility - Our development office is based in central Malmö, close to shops, cafes or perhaps a lunchtime swim. Since we're working on a physical robot, it's important that your base is in Malmö where we keep our robots. But as long as you can do your work, you are always welcome to work from home, or any other location you prefer (within Swedish time zone +/- 1 hr).

  • Your work makes a difference - Although Tengai has received massive attention worldwide, we are still a very young startup. By joining us at this early stage not only will your work be highly valued and you will have a big opportunity of growing with the company. You are also helping out in mitigating unconscious bias and thus promoting a more equal and fair recruitment process and diverse workforce.

  • Happy and Healthy - We believe that happy, healthy co-workers perform better. Therefore we offer a generous pension and healthcare package and six weeks paid holiday per year.
