Senior Backend Engineer (m/f/d) - Berlin

Employee
Berlin, Germany
IT / Software

Upvest’s mission is to empower developers and companies to easily innovate on top of the blockchain.

We create powerful blockchain APIs and enable developers to connect to and build on major open-source protocols like Bitcoin, Ethereum and Stellar without any prior blockchain knowledge. We make it simple to start in minutes instead of months - easy, safe and affordable.

Founded by serial entrepreneurs Jesper Noehr (founder of Bitbucket, exit to Atlassian) and Martin Kassing (COO of ShopCo, exit to Klarna), Upvest has generated substantial early stage revenues and is backed by Europe’s largest VCs (e.g. Holtzbrinck Ventures).

We are a hungry bunch of +22 people, just entering Series A. Around 75% of our company is composed of engineers and we are proud to single out our engineering culture. We also believe in a rewarding collaboration ahead of egos; agility ahead of process; autonomy ahead of micro-management and customer requirements ahead of presumptions.

The values we strive for:

  • #Never give up Go the extra mile, grow yourself and others to create value
  • #Be honest With others, and with yourself. Cut the bullshit, know where you have room for improvement, and be kind
  • #Be a community player Do things that help others without a direct benefit
  • #Leave it better than you found it Always strive to improve things, don't accept mediocrity

Technologies we use:

  • Python / Scala / Go / C
  • TypeScript / JavaScript (ES6) / React
  • Google Cloud Platform / Kubernetes / Istio / Docker / CircleCI
