Lead Backend Engineer - Node/TypeScript - Fintech

Job description

Senior / Lead Backend Engineer – TypeScript – Fintech

We’re working alongside a Fintech business based in Central Stockholm, as they look to expand their product offering following a growth in users over the past 12 months.

The company have built a platform used by new / small investors, giving them access to the worlds largest private markets without needing to invest huge amounts of capital. Their commitment to a niche product has seen them grow their user base quickly & they are now looking to expand into more European countries (they already operate in four).

The company headcount is at 25 currently, with half of those being engineers to some extent. They operate on a hybrid model in Stockholm, with 50% of your time being spent at home & the other 50% in the office.

The role

They are looking for an experienced backend developer currently, to help manage the development & implementation of multiple features for their clients. Whilst there will be no direct people management responsibilities, you will be expected to help more junior members of the team from a coaching perspective, as well as being closely involved with technical decision making.  

You need to have strong expertise in TypeScript to be considered but if you do have any expertise in Python, extra bonus points for you!

With their planned expansion into further European countries, there will be a constant stream of new feature requests across the next 12 months. On top of this, they want to ensure that the platform is as scalable as possible.

On offer is a salary of up to 65,000 SEK per month as well as a flexible benefits package dependent on your level of experience.

Their interview process is pretty streamlined & can be completed within a week. First up is a call with the CTO, followed by a take-home technical challenge & a final interview with the founding team!

If you think this role could be the one for you, let me know & we can discuss further!
