Your Profile

As Backend Developer, you develop the technological core of Europe’s most progressive private wealth management solution.
Together with our frontend team, you implement our digital platform and ensure that everything runs smoothly in the backend. Your main challenges are the integration of third-party APIs and the algorithmic puzzles faced in financial technology. One of your central duties is to work on new features and bug fixes while maintaining high code quality and data security in an agile environment.


  • You have multiple years of development experience with Ruby (on Rails). Familiarity with Elixir, Node.js or Python is a plus.
  • You have built and consumed RESTful APIs. Bonus points if you also have some experience with GraphQL.
  • You know how to write software tests with RSpec and you value process automation over performing repetitive tasks.
  • You have a good command of SQL and know when it's time to go beyond the ORM to handwrite optimized database queries.
  • You are able to independently find solutions to challenges, stepping off the beaten path to solve them if necessary.
  • You are familiar with Linux and cloud hosting. Experience with Docker, Kubernetes and/or DevOps tools (Terraform, Ansible, ...) is a plus.
