What we believe

Working in small, simple increments: we follow Gall's Law when building systems - start small and then gradually improve. We believe that working in small increments lets us deliver value to our customers as fast as possible. We want to minimize the work in progress and start less, finish more.

Building quality in: we prefer to prevent bugs, crashes and failures rather than fix them afterwards. We believe that fixing defects earlier enables us to deliver value quicker. When we increase technical debt, we do it only by a conscious and agreed choice.

Improving ourselves: we believe that improving daily work is as important as daily work itself.  We believe that by continuously learning and challenging ourselves, we can achieve better results quicker. We value transparency and feedback and are proud of the work that we do.

Some of our best benefits are:

  • Being part of an exciting and growing Fintech startup community
  • A competitive salary package
  • Flexible working arrangements (flexible work time, flexible location)
  • Unlimited paid holiday
  • Opportunity to dedicate 15% of your work time for learning and innovation
  • Private health insurance (after 6 months of employment)
  • Opportunity to learn with a team that is rapidly growing along - with a guaranteed training budget, supportive engineering manager and many smart engineers around
  • Friendly, balanced environment (e.g. pet friendly office, team events, snacks and drinks in the office, team buildings, fun budget and events)

And in terms of compensation - typical range for this role is around 5500€-6500€ per month (gross) - of course, that depends on the individual level of skills and experience.

Due to the amount of collaboration and communication needed for smooth process, we are considering candidates from the time zones GMT/GMT+3.
