Create a world in which any asset can be owned and traded digitally by anyone, anywhere,

Role overview

We’re looking for fintech enthusiasts to join us in creating the financial infrastructure of tomorrow. We’re building the first European Investment API to enable any financial institution to offer a broad range of investment products in their apps. Our view is backed by Europe's largest tech VCs (Earlybird, Notion Capital, Partech, HV Capital) and by renowned fintech entrepreneurs (including Maximilian Tayenthal, founder of N26, and Felix Haas, founder of IDnow). 

We’re based in Berlin but would consider hiring remotely for this role. If you do want to move to Berlin though, we’re happy to support your relocation.

Our vision is to create a world in which any asset can be owned and traded digitally by anyone, anywhere, and we're looking for ambitious pioneers to join us in this journey. Today, we count 30+ talented people from 15 different countries.

Your mission

We are seeking a full-time backend engineer to build a securities API for financial institutions, the first such API in Europe. Your goal is to take ownership of designing, developing and maintaining our microservice architecture (written in Go). 

A greenfield project. Cutting edge technologies. No legacy code.

Responsibilties:

  • Build fault-tolerant, horizontally scalable systems. Using Microservice architecture powered by Docker, Kubernetes, Linkerd service mesh, and Kong as a Gateway.
  • Build event-driven applications using Kafka
  • Work on different aspects of our API-product portfolio as part of the development team
  • Develop data processing and storing mechanisms
  • Work on improving the reliability of our API tools, as well as developing innovative tools
  • Work with an agile methodology: at the end of the 2-weeks sprint cycle we have a demo with a retrospective to make our software delivering faster

Requirements

  • Prior experience with distributed systems 
  • Willingness to make Go your day-to-day language (production experience is not strictly required)
  • Fluency with SQL databases such as PostgreSQL, transaction isolation, performance optimization
  • Fluency with event-driven architecture and concurrent algorithms
  • Be proactive in learning new stacks and have a high sense of taking ownership
  • Excited to work in a fast-paced and dynamic startup environment

Nice to have

  • Experience with Docker, k8s, understanding principles of a service mesh
  • Experience with Monitoring and Tracing using Datadog
  • Understanding of encryption algorithms and their application
  • Experience working in Fintech domain

Why Upvest?

  • We're working on solving a hard problem: fixing the European securities financial infrastructure that empowers more people to be able to invest. You have the opportunity to contribute to this change.
  • We invest in you. From access to a personal coach, development budget and plenty of opportunities to grow in your role.
  • We take hiring seriously with a strong focus on keeping a high bar when interviewing (equally important is that we also hire decent people who are passionate about their craft and helping up achieve our shared mission).
  • While we're not quite fully-remote, we are committed to being a flexible employer as we understand you don't have to be in the office to do your best work.
  • We live a culture of empowerment, trust (that we hire the best people and get out of their way) and openness (there's a greater advantage in sharing information than keeping it to ourselves).
  • We ensure we take time to have fun as a team. We're looking forward to having more time in-person again once this becomes possible again.

  • Berlin, Germany
