Tendium is on the lookout for a dynamic Backend Developer to be a key player in our innovative team. Elevate your career and be at the forefront of cutting-edge technology with us!
Tendium is a tech company working in the space between technology and customers. Through cutting edge technologies, we are revolutionising industries with modern, efficient methods, creating new possibilities to democratise both the public and 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 Sweden. 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 constantly emerging. 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 and 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 backend developer, you'll work in an agile environment alongside self-sustaining teams. Your team will have full ownership over the products and features you create, leveraging continuous delivery practices. We strive that the development teams at Tendium are self-reliant, comprising a spectrum of skills encompassing backend, frontend, infrastructure, and dev-ops expertise.
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 regularly organise after work activities and we want to maintain our friendly and informal atmosphere.
Starting dates for the successful candidates are to be agreed upon.
Our current stack:
Backend: Python (Scrapy, FastAPI), NodeJS (TypeScript), GraphQL (microservice architecture)
DBs: DocumentDB (MongoDB), PostgreSQL
Infrastructure: AWS containerized and serverless compute through TypeScript CDK
Languages: Python (primary backend), Typescript (backend and infrastructure)
Who We Are Looking For
For this position, we seek an individual who can demonstrate responsibility and initiative. You should value structure and possess a good ability to write scalable code at both macro and micro levels.
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 by building deep expertise in backend development.
We are on the lookout for individuals who find fulfilment in collaborative problem-solving and appreciate collaborating closely with team and 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 backend. 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.
