Company Description
Have you ever worked for a company that actually wanted you to bring your whole self to work every single day?

About Tradeshift
Tradeshift is a unicorn in the fintech industry. We are disrupting a typically stagnant environment by connecting companies of all sizes and providing them with the platform and network needed to create value from old processes like procurement, invoicing, payments, and workflow. We recognize that business is both messy and social - two revelations that have driven the development of Tradeshift, a platform for all your business interactions.

Team
This team is responsible for Tradeshift’s backend, and is working to design the next generation architecture that will be able to solve the business needs of the future. This means making the needed changes to the current backend to enable high availability now, scalability for the future, and stability for our developers. In addition, we have an overall goal to improve the architecture to support Tradeshift’s goal for moving to a micro-service architecture.

Job Description
Role:
We are looking for team members who want to solve some of our most challenging problems, and are interested in becoming experts around most of the backend functionality in Tradeshift. This is a very important role, one that will have a big future at our company, as most of the functional aspects of our platform live in the backend and we need people to lead teams around these areas as we grow.

What a day is like:

  • Grow into a very senior role at Tradeshift - your current peers are a group of senior engineering leaders who are assigned some of the most challenging problems we have at Tradeshift. We expect you will help us lead our engineering organization in the future.
  • Lead and help our product teams be successful - guidelines, reviews, with the goal to enable high velocity for all of our product teams. Support product teams that are creating their own microservices based on backend functionality.
  • Plan and implement the needed changes to our backend over time to ensure that the backend is highly available, scalable, and resilient to failure. This includes writing high-quality, tested and peer-reviewed code.
  • Drive a long term priority list of initiatives needed to improve the backend (per business requirements).
  • KPIs and monitoring for ensuring the success of the above goals.
  • Identify opportunities, design and implement solutions to improve engineering productivity.

Qualifications
You’re perfect for this role if you:

  • 5+ years of experience with Java and/or JVM based languages (like Scala or Clojure).
  • 5+ years experience with SQL based DBs, preferably PostgreSQL
  • You can demonstrate proper software engineering practices, are pragmatic in your solutions, and take ownership for the quality of your deliveries
  • You are comfortable developing on Linux / Unix operating systems
  • You have experience with source control, preferable GIT
  • You have worked with virtualization / container techs, like Docker or are interested in getting knowledge in that area
  • You have experience in cloud solutions (AWS, Google cloud, Heroku) or you are eager to learn
  • You are interested in problems around concurrency, scalability, and distributed systems
  • You are fluent in English speaking, reading and writing

Additional Information
Location
Our office in Copenhagen has a palpable excitement that stems from the constant change that keeps everyone on their toes. Each employee has a voice, and their hard work pays off. No good work goes unnoticed.

Culture
Our culture began day one when three Danes poured their brains, heart, and guts into creating a platform that could connect every business in the world. We expect each employee to approach their work with the same amount of pride and passion. One day you might find us having a ping pong match in the middle of the work day, and then you’ll find us handing off projects to colleagues in different time zones so we can continue progress around the clock.

TradeShifters come from various backgrounds and nations, and we all thrive off challenging the status quo. We take pride in nurturing employee happiness, encouraging personal development, and welcoming teammates from all walks of life.

We value diversity and we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Why you might like working here:

  • You love autonomy and the freedom to get your work done how you want
  • You like sharing your opinions and feeling like they matter
  • You want to work for a company that requires you to bring your whole self to work every day: brains, heart, and guts.
  • Ambitious international startup
  • Career and professional development opportunities
  • Large office that provides caters to many different work-environment preferences
  • Flexible work hours
  • Mobile phone plan and at home internet
  • Lunch and snacks daily with drinks
