Undo is on the lookout for a Senior Backend Engineer with an interest in Functional Programming and backend technologies. You have several years of experience with developing and maintaining production-grade systems and knows the ins-and-out of your toolbox and your preferred tech stack.
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 tech leads to design and implement 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 Senior 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)
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

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 also require that you are an EU resident.
A safe and friendly environment for learning and contributing
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

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.
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
