Full time Developer

Job Description

We have great ambitions. We went into the fight against banks and large financial institutions. We want to teach Czechs to pay for their everyday needs and to manage their money. If you want to join the finest FinTech team in Eastern Europe, write to us!

Main Responsibility:

We are looking for a senior developer to help us develop existing and new products. Currently, it is primarily a Twisto account that allows you to shop with one click on different e-shops, or pay bills and invoices simply by photo or e-mail. No more internet banking and complicated payments in the bank. We pay for the client for a month and we keep track of all the bill in the mobile application. The client pays only once a month for all their spend (always until the 15th day).

We are currently starting the project with the German Bank WireCard - Twisto card, which will change the way we pay in the shops. It is a project full of new technologies and challenges!

In addition to the Twisto account, there is a lot of room to work on other components of our application in the future, and it will be up to you which area you would like to devote the most effort. Whether it's API, customer interface, e-shop administration, credit scoring (machine learning and neural networks - more at nikitaengine.com), internal dashboards, or automation of processes.

Who we are looking for:

  • We require good knowledge of Django, Python (we use 3.4), GIT, SQL (PostgreSQL advantage) and a sense of quality, long-term sustainable and well-tested code.
  • An advantage, not necessity, is experience with Celery, Django REST Framework and Elasticsearch.
  • If you are a full stack developer or have experience with other programming languages, you will be ahead of other candidates.

We offer:

  • Direct influence on results Twisto - development and technology are the core of our company.
  • A nice, dynamic and young team - we have 41 and 4 dogs.
  • Fast-growing start-up with strong support from investors.

Who you work with ("core team")
