Backend Software Engineer
Working within tech at Lunar is nothing like a tech department at any other company. We are well known for being a top-talent tech hub and we are highly ambitious in how we develop and build smart solutions that will enable our customers to have a great experience. If you’re looking for a place where tech is a hot topic, where you will learn from talented people and be part of solving complex challenges, then keep reading. We’re looking for a Backend Software Developer to join our Aarhus office.
At Lunar we are democratizing the power of money and changing the way we all bank, pay, and invest. We have grown by leaps and bounds since starting out in Aarhus in 2015 and are now considered a major player in the Nordics with offices in Aarhus, Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Oslo, as well as employees working remotely across Europe.
A job within Lunar's Transaction Banking area is a job at the core of our value proposition; facilitating our customers' ability to perform financial transfers in a seamless and secure manner, across the markets Lunar operates in (Denmark, Norway, and Sweden). You will get the opportunity to work with different payment and clearing schemes, paving the way for Lunar's near- and long-term strategy.
As a backend software engineer within Transaction Banking, you will be part of the squad ‘Orion’. Each Squad in Lunar has a specific domain for which they take end-to-end ownership of, allowing Lunar to move swiftly with a minimum of cross-squad dependency.
Orion consists of 5 very experienced engineers and a dedicated Squad lead who all are located on-premise in Århus. The squad is ‘autonomous’, meaning they decide on how, when and why. In Lunar we believe trust between people is the best way to achieve great results, and by joining ‘Orion’ you will get to experience this firsthand. Squad ‘Orion’ takes a structured approach to the way of working, dividing chunks of work into ‘cycles’ with a number of ceremonies like cycle-planning and subsequent retrospectives for a continuous feedback loop.
The following will give an idea of which responsibilities come with the job. Take note that everything is focused on ‘Transactions’ and ‘Clearing’ of transactions:
- Design, develop and maintain Lunar's integration with clearing schemes and critical elements of Lunar's core-banking setups
- Produce high-performant, scalable, and well-documented code
- Develop and drive testing and observability of new and existing solutions
- Stay up-to-date with emerging technologies and trends within the world of ‘transactions’ and payment-rails
- Participate in the Squad's day-to-day ceremonies
- Interact with key stakeholders in the Lunar
We welcome all to apply to this exciting and impactful role and look forward to following up with candidates who we believe are the best potential fit based on the following criteria:
- >3 years experience as a backend engineer, preferably within the payment processing domain
- Good understanding of, or interest in learning Go (Golang)
- Experience working with observability and monitoring of critical services
- Focused on delivering high-quality and robust software
- Knowledge of API design and development
- Good communication and collaboration skills
- It’s great if you have experience with cloud technologies (primarily AWS and Azure)
If this sounds like the perfect opportunity for you, please continue reading to learn more and consider applying. We look forward to hearing from you!
