Your main task will be to develop a new product from scratch.

  • Integrating with partners in the FinTech space
  • Focus areas for next year: Launching new products, internationalization, integration between our product areas, building a stable and scalable platform

What we’re looking for

  • Professional experience of Scala. If you’re a battle-hardened Java programmer and have started looking at Scala in your spare time, let’s talk too!
  • If you’ve used Akka or have Actor Model experience from another language or technology you get a gold star
  • Apprentice wizard level knowledge in Kafka
  • You get that warm, fuzzy feeling when you think about Kubernetes and Docker
  • If you have code you can share in Bitbucket or on GitHub, we get that warm fuzzy feeling too
  • Good level of English (both spoken and written)
  • You love borsch!

Bonus

  • Making yourself understood and communicating both your point and your reasoning. Swedes like what they call the “red thread” – or logical progression of thoughts. Extra points if you can do it succinctly. 
  • Naming five or more dishes that include beetroot, besides borsch.
