Senior Backend Engineer (Kotlin), Compliance

Remote or Berlin, Germany
Engineering
Full-time

In this position, you can choose whether you want to work fully remote, from the office or hybrid. We have our tech hubs in Helsinki and Berlin, or you can work remotely anywhere in Finland, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, and Estonia. Read more about our remote setup here.

We have a spot open in our Compliance team for an experienced Backend Engineer looking to work with Kotlin. This team is building brand new services which means that there is minimal technical debt and you’ll have a direct impact on building new features to something that serves a bigger good.

The team is one of the 8 teams in our Financial Services group where we have fellow teams working e.g. with enabling smooth money flows (in and out), country operations and ensuring locally compliant financial invoicing. The mission of the Compliance team is to build services that enable standardized data & risk management practices for our financial processes. In the upcoming year, the team will be for example building services to automate our KYC (know-your-customer) process which allows us to do business more responsibly but also has a real human impact internally as it reduces the manual work of many teams and allows them to focus on the right things. 

There are a few nice reasons why our engineers enjoy working in our Financial Services teams, and we wanted to share some of them so you’ll have an idea of what to expect.

  • We use modern tools and technologies. Current stack in use: Kotlin (Spring Boot, Ktor), Python (Flask & FastAPI), TypeScript, React, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Kafka, GitHub Actions, Jenkins, AWS, Docker and Kubernetes.

  • We have high autonomy and ownership in our teams which means that we make decisions as a team regarding architectures, tech and ways of working. As a team, we handle the whole development process (business logic, testing, database & data streaming, CI/CD, analytics, cloud) while getting support from central teams when needed.

  • There is a lot of room for learning, teaching and growing together. Cultivating diversity and maintaining different opinions is the key to our success. Our teams are at the heart of the platform as there is no business without well functioning financial services and this is where you get to see the impact of your work!

Our humble expectations

As these are new and crucial services that the team is building, we are looking for someone who has several years of experience building high-quality software, APIs and integrations and can handle the whole development cycle all the way to production. If you haven’t worked with Kotlin before, that’s okay as we find strong expertise in other JVM backend languages like Java genuinely relevant as well. Knowledge of tools such as PostgreSQL, Docker, K8 and AWS will become handy. If you happen to have a lust to contribute to frontend as well, we are working with Typescript and React there.

We are looking for engineers who can solve problems together, think about big problems such as scalability and availability and sometimes go against the current to also challenge the common decision. Understanding compliance concepts will help you succeed, but please don’t let it get in the way if it’s a new area for you -  we’re sure you’d get a grasp of things quickly once you start! We value taking ownership beyond obvious, your motivation to learn new things you don’t yet master, and willingness to collaborate with different teams Woltwide. 

Next steps

The compensation will be a negotiable combination of monthly pay and Wolt stock options. The latter makes it exceptionally easy to be excited about our company growing and doing well, as you'll own a piece of the pie.
