Job Description

About Qapital

We are a team of designers, behavioral scientists and financial technologists on a mission to build a new banking experience from scratch, starting with an automated savings product that has already helped over a 400,000 users in the U.S. save hundreds of millions toward their goals. In 2017, we launched a checking account, and have a pipeline of other banking services like Invest coming very soon. Our app has been awarded Most Innovative App by Google and been featured in Apps We Love by Apple, and we are proud of our high user ratings.

We work with Dan Ariely, our Chief Behavioral Economist, to create innovative tools that help people become masters of their financial lives. Tools that are useful to everyone, but accessible to anyone. Tools that give people control when they want it, and automation when they don’t. Tools that help people put their money towards what matters most.

Qapital is looking for an enthusiastic and talented Java Backend Developer to join our team in Stockholm. 

Skills and requirements

Here’s what we really need you to be able to have from day one.

  • At least 2 years’ worth of server-side Java development
  • Strong programming skills with the ability to write and structure code in a readable and maintainable way
  • Experience of the Spring Framework
  • Experience of building RESTful HTTP API’s
  • Experience of building microservices
  • Experience of event driven applications
  • Strong proficiency in written and spoken English (Swedish isn’t necessary -- we have an international team and work through English)
  • Great team skills, and a desire to get even better one

The Qapital backend systems are structured in large part according to the Microservices pattern, and expose a RESTful HTTP API to our client apps. The core services are all developed in house, while we integrate with multiple external platform providers for more low-level banking infrastructure services. These are some of the technologies we currently use.

  • Java 10
  • Spring Boot 2.0
  • Aurora MySQL 5.7
  • Redis
  • AWS (SQS, Machine Learning, S3, and more)
  • CI/CD pipeline built on Jenkins and Docker

Further we believe you have a degree in computer science or similar. Although not needed we see value if you have experience from the banking/financial industry, have been working with high security applications, or have been working on the front-end side with web or native apps.

We offer

Accelerate your career within an international company and succeed in an environment where you will have the possibility to make a daily impact.

Involvement. Take responsibility for the entire app development process, and be part of a fantastic journey within a dynamic booming business. We typically focus the entire team, from product owners and designers to developers and operations engineers, on one feature because we think that with teamwork comes great innovation and knowledge sharing.

Flexibility. We appreciate meeting up in the office but we can also work from anywhere anytime if that makes our lives easier.

Great colleagues. The people at Qapital come from different backgrounds but all share the same passion for technology and product development. 

Personal development. We aim to hire the best people and make sure they’re given the right environment to continue to grow. You will be given the opportunity to go to the best conferences, lunch and learn with your colleagues, and explore new interests in our recurring Hackday’s.

Qapital is an entrepreneur-driven company where dedication and ownership is extremely important. Therefore we encourage all our employees to take part in our equity program.

Relocation package available for the right person.


A diverse team is best positioned to truly serve our market, and diverse applicants bring ideas, abilities and perspectives that we haven’t even considered yet. We especially encourage you to apply if you are part of a category or group that is normally underrepresented in the tech industry.
