Om tjänsten

We are looking for a seasoned backend developer who is curious and passionate about programming. You are confident to take your own initiatives and easy to collaborate with. You are also driven and never hesitate to ask for help when you need it. The team you are joining is highly experienced and characterized by an open-minded atmosphere where everyone is welcome to contribute.

We care about our employees:

  • We have flexible working hours to make your everyday life easier.
  • We have generous terms regarding pensions, wellness, free healthcare etc.
  • We avoid overtime. You staying with us for 10 years is more important than short-term business goals.

We adjust to where you want to work:

  • 100% at the office
  • 100% remote
  • Or a mix where you’re at the office a few days a week

If you choose to work 100% remote, you will be given money to buy a desk and chair. We will buy screens, docking station headset, computer, phone etc. If you choose a mix you will be given a double set of equipment so you have the same conditions at home and at the office.

You can also choose to work abroad for 3 months a year. The only requirement is that you work approximately the same working hours as your colleagues.


You will be involved in the entire development process, from requirement specification, creation of stories, estimations, development, testing, release and maintenance. Over time you are expected to understand the platform well enough that you can recommend necessary changes in architecture and understand their long-term impact. The team you will be joining maintains a standalone backend platform, meaning full responsibility in maintaining it, but also full flexibility in all architectural decisions for the whole backend stack.
