Job Description

We’re looking for a Forward Deployed Software Engineer (FDSE) to join our team. The role will primarily be forward deployed to our different partner banks across Europe, but you’ll spend 25% of your time at Tink’s HQ in Stockholm.

As a FDSE you’ll both be a vital part of the core Tink development team, but also be embedded into a team of one of our partners to help bringing our products to millions of people across Europe. Being forward deployed means you’ll be stationed in major European capitals such as London, Amsterdam, Paris and Berlin.

The FDSE role is a great learning experience, both from a software engineering perspective but also from a personal development perspective, being exposed to both one of the most innovative FinTech startups in Europe, but also to some of the biggest and most progressive banks in Europe.


  • Help our partners realize the potential in our technology and make the most of it across our partner’s channels and verticals.
  • Act as a vital link between our partners and the Tink-team in Stockholm.
  • Adapt our technology to the unique requirements of each individual partner.
  • Develop new features and technology together with both our partners and the rest of the Tink-team.
  • Drive and innovate product development and way of work at our partner’s site.

Required qualifications

  • BS degree in Computer Science or related technical field, or equivalent practical experience.
  • Experience in one or more of: C, C++, C#, Java, Perl, Python, Go.

Preferred qualifications

  • MS degree in Computer Science or related technical field, or equivalent practical experience.
  • Experience with server-side systems development and framework in either C, C++, C#,  Java, Perl, Python, Go.
  • Experience with Android/Java and/or iOS/Objective-C/Swift development.
  • Experience with large-scale low-latency transaction intensive system development.

How we work

Tink is an engineering and product company at heart. We look for people with a broad set of technical skills who are ready to tackle whatever problem. As an engineer at Tink, you will work in a specific team critical to Tink’s needs with opportunities to switch teams and projects as you and our fast-paced business grow and evolve. We need our colleagues to be versatile, enthusiastic and display leadership qualities to tackle new problems across the board as we continue to push our product forward.

Even though we are separated in teams, Tink is still a true start-up and one big team where everyone’s opinion is valued. It’s not uncommon that we all sit together and workshop on the next feature design on a Friday afternoon, and build prototypes and ship beta versions the week after. There is a great degree of freedom within your team and you are solely responsible for what you do and your time. This is a perfect time to join Tink and put yourself in one of these small, growing and creative teams.
