Are you our next backend developer?
Come join us at Kivra! We’re looking for people with a passion for software development, love solving problems, and that thrive in agile development environments. We have grown tremendously and are looking for backend developers to help us scale! You’ll be part of building a scalable platform using functional languages like Erlang and Elixir.
At Kivra, we are building services that connect over 5 million people, by providing a safe and accessible digital infrastructure that everyone in Sweden can trust and use. At the same time, we are saving trees - reducing the paper that is printed and transported - by providing a better digital alternative to physical paper communication.
What you’ll be doing
You’ll join one of Kivra’s feature or platform teams, and work to develop features/services (both new and existing) to meet the needs, and solve the problems, of our users and senders. Security, reliability, and scalability are three areas we value highly and that serve as a foundation for our services; and central to the work you’ll do.
Our services deal with large amounts of users, data and transactions daily, and our objective is to do so with 100% availability. We believe in doing things smart, simple and open source - and this is reflected in our tech stack.
Our platform and core is built on Erlang and Riak. We also utilize Docker, Kubernetes, PostgreSQL, GCP, Kafka, Ansible, Elixir, Splunk, Github, and more.
What we’re looking for
Knowledge is important but so is attitude! Kivra’s culture is strongly influenced by kindness, drive and the willingness to produce high-quality work. How you fit in with your team is super important for us - we thrive on being nice, helpful and always encouraging growth.
We think that you:
Are a do-er that gets excited about developing new ideas and proposing innovative solutions
Use feedback and reflection to develop self-awareness, personal strengths and address development areas
Can collaborate with other product teams to help and provide the best end-user experience
Review your work and that of others for quality, accuracy and relevance
Use straightforward communication, in a structured way, when influencing others
Seek opportunities to automate and document your work
Moreover, we value previous experience in agile methodology and that you enjoy working within all aspects of agile development. Just like us, you are passionate about your craft and take ownership over your own development.
Kivra offers a role in a caring and committed team, in a company that is growing and continuously innovating. You’ll join a warm and friendly culture that thrives on collaboration and teamwork. You will be involved in shaping and influencing a product currently used by more than half of Sweden’s population.
We offer competitive remuneration and great benefits. We offer remote work anywhere within the EU, however you are always welcome to join us in our vibrant office located in central Stockholm.
