Software engineer - Backend
Tendium is looking for a Backend engineer to join the team.
Tendium is looking for a full-time Backend developer to join our team on a quest to bring state-of-the-art tech to the process of public procurement. We are a tight-knit, young, and professional team located in Stockholm, Sweden. An ideal candidate needs a prolific skillset and an eagerness to grow, learn, and solve problems as a team. Together with our team, partners, and advisers, we are pushing technological boundaries to achieve our goals through completely new methods.
Tendium is a tech company working in the space between technology and customers. Through advanced machine-learning technologies, we are revolutionising industries with modern, efficient methods, creating new possibilities to democratise both the public and the private sector markets. The team at Tendium is expanding, with everyone from data scientists to salespeople working side by side, and now we want you to join us.
We are an ever-growing company comprised of some of the sharpest minds in Europe. With such talent, we at Tendium naturally believe in a flat hierarchy, where everyone has responsibility, autonomy, and the opportunity to provide input. Since we are increasing in size significantly, new opportunities are emerging constantly. We require ambitious, conscientious, and value-driven new colleagues to help grow the business. If you are successful in becoming a part of our team, we promise to provide a dynamic, intellectually stimulating workplace. We believe that personal and professional development is crucial and as such you will have the opportunity to take on real responsibility from day one.
As a software engineer at Tendium you will be working in an agile environment with self-sufficient teams. Your team will have full ownership of the products/features you develop and we work with continuous delivery. The work is organised around sprints and we aim for high levels of collaboration within teams. All teams are self-sufficient and contain a breadth of skills including backend, frontend, infrastructure and dev-ops. You can specialise in an area or build a broad base with a varied skillset. We do expect everyone to work together as a team to solve the task at hand, but we strongly promote building deep knowledge and expertise in areas of interest.
As a team, we always strive to use state-of-the-art technology and stay at the forefront of development. Working agile means that we build minimum viable products, but we always aim for high-quality code. Moreover, we want everyone to contribute with thoughts and ideas, whether it is in their area of expertise or not. And if you want to dig deep in a technical area you will always find someone interested in the team.
Working at Tendium will enable you to fully immerse yourself in an AI-focused tech startup environment, working with state-of-the-art technology. You will have the benefit of learning from experienced colleagues in cross-functional teams to further develop your own expertise and broaden your skills in adjacent areas. Your work will directly contribute to our continuous deployment which means if you build iot, it will be with our customers within a matter of days/weeks.
We are looking for primarily Stockholm based candidates and we work in a hybrid environment. We organise after works and other team activities both online and offline and want to keep our friendly and informal atmosphere. We like to get to know you in person, but whether you work from home or from the office is up to you!
Starting dates for the successful candidates are to be agreed upon.
Our current stack:
Backend (TypeScript, GraphQL, SQL, ElasticSearch, cloud infrastructure and CDK)
Languages: TypeScript, Python, Java
DBs: Elasticsearch, MongoDB, PostgreSQL
Cloud only: AWS
Who We Are Looking For
For this position we are looking for an individual who can take on responsibility and show initiative. You should appreciate structure and have a good ability to write scalable code on a structural or architectural level, whilst also being able to work at a micro-level with algorithms.
Our needs for this role span frontend, backend and infrastructure, as such we are looking for candidates experienced in any of these areas. Our primary requirement is that you have a clear ambition to master your chosen area of work, whether this be frontend, backend, infrastructure or something else. We are looking for developers who are willing and able to work towards the teams current goals, so even if you have a specific area of focus, you should be comfortable working on a range of tasks.
At Tendium, the tech teams work with continuous delivery and we aim for fast delivery with quality code, without over-engineering. We value constructive problem solving and are looking for someone who enjoys taking on new tasks and features and appreciates learning about and using new technology and solutions. As such, we are looking for someone who wants to keep learning and improving, honing their skills either by building deep expertise in one area of our stack, working with infrastructure, or building a broad base.
We value working effectively as a team/with colleagues (e.g. pair programming), and that is why we are looking for those qualities in you.
Ideal candidates should have a few years of experience in either frontend, backend or infrastructure development. Note that by experience, we do not necessarily mean employment. We care about what you can do, not how long you’ve been on the payroll.
We look forward to your application. We recruit on an ongoing basis, so apply as soon as possible. Successful candidates will be invited to a video interview where you will have the opportunity to meet the team.
