Together with the fintech innovation challengers and leaders, finreach solutions develops B2B2C plug-n-play solutions and our microservices architecture enables our business clients to have best-in-class interfaces and reduced back-end complexity. In March 2019, finreach solutions and figo decided to join forces; our two great locations (Hamburg and Berlin) and a team of 90 employees form the leading European Software-as-a-Service API platform for financial products. We combine experience, passion and commitment, bring all players in the financial world together at eye level, and drive the digitalisation and transformation of the financial industry.

About the role:

As a Backend Developer at finreach solutions, you will work on a small SCRUM team to drive the development of feature-complete product increments. There are still new product lines to be built completely from scratch, and you will get to be a big part of an experienced team with a very broad impact, with visibility throughout the organization and a significant opportunity to take ownership.  

What You'll Achieve:

First Weeks:

  • Become comfortable with our tools and processes by partnering with a member of your team to ramp up effectively

  • Consult with internal stakeholders in Product and Operations on best practices and internal standards

  • Start cutting code and take ownership of a minor feature release or a bug fix

First Months:

  • Take ownership and more significant, longer term, or large-scale projects and deliver solutions

  • Take a role at building tools or processes that make the whole team more efficient and effective

  • Thrive for pragmatic perfection, paying attention to the details of security, scalability, performance and fault-tolerance

  • Participate in discussion around design and architecture of our platform; advocate for particular technologies or processes that would have impact across the organization.

What you'll need to be successful:

  • Great engineering skills, strong CS fundamentals, and elegance in your work
  • Current expertise in Java, Spring (boot) framework and enthusiasm to learn others.
  • A strong sense of long term ownership of the work you do and believe in doing things the right way for the right reasons
  • A fanatical pursuit of quality with a strong appreciation for the connection between the software you build and the experience it delivers to customers
  • An innovative and fast learner, versatile in team environment, and battle-tested in cloud scale systems.


Our Tech stack for API Platform building:

finreach solutions engineering team is a cross-functional Agile (Scrum) team. Tasks are driven by clearly defined goals and their business value. Our team includes technical product managers, and software and QA engineers. Our mode of operation allows us to integrate internal and remote engineering teams smoothly.

We serve both internal and external customers. 

Our technology is based primarily on Java stack: Java 8, Spring 4 (Boot, MVC, Data, Maven, JUnit). Our databases are powered by MongoDB, MySQL, Elasticsearch and Redis. Furthermore we have a Ruby stack (Ruby on Rails, RSpec) and many of our interfaces use ReactJS or AngularJS. We have a microservices oriented architecture, use Git as source control, have a continuous integration pipeline with Travis CI. Our software runs in docker containers and is deployed with Ansible.

What you’ll get from us:

Working with us means you will be challenged every day by our partners and your peers. You can be yourself, speak freely, be trusted and respected. You get to give and receive regular feedback, to improve yourself and others. We know that exceptional people don’t choose jobs based solely on benefits, but we do our best to make sure that you’re set up for success. In other words;

  • We'd love for you to join our international, solution-oriented team, where collaboration and transparency are our core values.

  • You can bring your fresh ideas to the company, and define the way you want to work. Our culture cares about you as an individual.

  • You can take advantage of a leadership team with tremendous industry expertise, that is dedicated to continuously improving both your personal growth and development and the organization, in a way that ensures long term success.

  • Our highly experienced People & Organization department with a long track record of hiring and supporting international employees, will be there to support you and your family; to make sure your experience relocating to Berlin is a great one :-)
