The financial industry is built on unclarity, jargon, and myth. Selma aspires to be different, open, nice, transparent, and human. We want to make things clear and easy to understand and at the same time automate all the processes that should be automated. Join us in making Selma the friendliest, most exciting way to take care of your finances.
We are looking for experienced and eager to learn software engineers to join our small but growing engineering team.
The Selma team includes folks from Finland, Switzerland, Austria, Ukraine, Vietnam and Jordan. Remote work is part of our backbone, which means we arrange every meeting remote-first, and share everything from emails to plans to meeting notes in the company chat.
At Selma, you will join a team that appreciates skill over hierarchy, ideas over egos and experiments over guesswork. We build things with clients and follow a customer-centered business philosophy. This means co-design workshops, open roadmap, a visible stream of #feedback and much more!
Our current technology stack consists of Ruby on Rails in the backend with Postgres and Redis as our choices of database. The Rails backend serves both a REST API as well as a new GraphQL API.
We are currently building a mobile app for iOS and Android using React Native.
Our development process is based on continuous integration and deployment, where anything that goes into master, also goes into production. That means that we are big fans of automated testing: we have wide suites of unit, integration, end-to-end and visual regression tests that prove the correct functionality of our service at every build.
We expect you to
have solid experience in our current tech stack
be versatile in software development in general
be always hungry to learn new things and technologies
be excited about taking and having ownership of entire parts of our system, and taking part in making technology choices
be excited to make engineering decisions based on the best interest of our customers and the business
a competitive salary package with a sizeable options component
trust to manage your own work and schedule
ability to work remotely
support for you to be as productive as you can and keep learning and improving
annual trips with the team (last year we were in Poland!)
This is how things will progress:
An introductory chat
