Junior Backend Engineer

Salary Competitive

Undo is on the lookout for a Junior Backend Engineer with an interest in Functional Programming and backend technologies. You might be newly graduated or come with a few years of experience, as long as you’re motivated and have an appetite to learn and get responsibility from day one. 

You will join our team of ingenious developers that share a common interest in developing functional, robust systems in a complicated and data-heavy domain. This spans API-services that support our mobile and web clients, advanced pricing and payment systems that makes our insurance fairer and easier to manage, and automating our back office, so our customers get their problems solved as fast as possible - and much more.

In the role, you’ll be working closely with our Senior Backend Engineers by collaborating on building solutions while you’ll get the responsibility that enables you to grow your skills and enhance your personal development. You will also become part of our functional community of backend engineers, where the vision for our tech and tool stack is co-created and best-practice knowledge is shared with the purpose of continuously improving what and how we build stuff.

As a Junior Backend Engineer you will:

  • Architect, design, develop, and deploy services that support 30.000 people’s insurance

  • Build cool stuff with friends in a complex and challenging domain

  • Be a valued contributor in cross-functional teams that collaborate with each other to find the best solution

  • Learn as much as you want to, as fast as you want to

  • Build out and influence a fresh and modern tech stack (Currently: Scala, ZIO, doobie GraphQL, Postgres/Redshift)

You are:

  • Curious, always looking to grow & learn

  • Open-minded, with an appetite to try other programming languages and environments than your usual ones

  • Empathetic, a helpful teamplayer

  • Self-directed, finding solutions independently

  • Optimistic, on what can ultimately be accomplished, realistic in the path to get there.

You believe in:

  • Craftsmanship. You take pride in “doing things right” and sharing your knowledge about it

  • Robust, Tested and Performant Code

  • Cross-functionality. Working across disciplines builds better systems and products

  • Involvement. You want to be part of not just code, but decisions, prioritizations and directions

  • Ownership. Ship it, own it, be proud of it

  • Automation. Anything that can be automated should be automated

You have:

  • Experience in Functional Programming. Scala is strongly preferred, but it might also be Haskell, Clojure or another functional language

  • Done many projects with different tools, techniques and technologies either at work, studies or in your spare time

  • An interest in working at a startup, where you’ll be able to influence decisions

  • An educational background in Computer Science or Software Engineering, providing you with a strong theoretical foundation and toolbox

We require that you are an EU resident.

We offer:

  • A safe and friendly environment for learning and contributing

  • Competitive salary

  • An awesome, spacious, light and airy office at Tømmergravsgade in Copenhagen

  • Remote-friendly work schedules

  • The gear you need to love booting up and wiring in

  • Delightful lunches, after-work events and socialization

About Undo:

Undo is a start-up on a mission to change insurance as you know it. We’re replacing bureaucracy and roadblocks by injecting technology and accessibility into an industry that lacks both – reinventing insurance as it should be: no paperwork, no phone queues, less BS. The result is a seamless digital interface on both web and app, that delivers a fast, affordable, and hassle-free experience.

Undo has:

  • A special focus on employee happiness. It’s about the journey, not the destination

  • A highly informal, humorous culture. In contrast to insurance, we are (we would argue) not boring

  • A flat structure. Everyone is on deck, together, and your opinion will always be taken into account
