  • Cooperate with other Devs and Architects and strive to deliver rock solid solutions.
  • Combine creativity with an awareness of the design elements and support prototypes for new component and product ideas.

  • Experience and references as a Backend Engineer in complex setups in a specific language (e.g. Java).
  • Ideally experience in working with AD, Airlock, AWS and openShift.
  • Understanding microservices, event driven APIs and being able to implement complex functionality in Java or TypeScript – e.g. Spring, NestJs, Flux, lambda or cloud functions.

  • A plus would be understanding of web3 or blockchain technologies or APIs.


  • The chance to be part of a movement shaping the futures of our world’s financial system.
