Introduction

We are a small, highly talented and fun group of developers and financial payment experts building extremely interesting products out of Stockholm, Sweden.

We are expanding on an exciting new product that will take the communication of banks and payments players to the next level! The product is primarily a backend based product, designed to connect via APIs to external systems.

We’re looking for a development leader who can both code and manage others, and knows how to get things moving. On a day-to-day basis you will be discussing product requirements, asking questions, and building. We like MVPs, proof of concepts, and speed.

We don’t reinvent the wheel here, we’re smart, pragmatic, and we’re obsessed with delivering and picking up new and more efficient ways of doing things in order to get there. 

You will have fun working with us, we laugh every day and as a small team, we take care of each other and respect work life balance to the utmost.

The role is based in Stockholm, Sweden and we provide a mixture of remote and office work.

We use Jira and lightweight Agile development methodologies. We have built the system from day one with test automation (unit and integration testing) into an automated pipeline using gitlab.

Time to market is important, and we will use technologies off the shelf wherever it makes sense, such as Google Pub/Sub, GitLab CI/CD, etc.

    • Happy to spend time discussing alternatives

    • Not afraid to say no if we need to execute or get something done before we can move on
