Senior Backend Developer

Do you want to make an awesome product even awesomer? We are looking for a senior Python developer.

Auka is the result of amazing people working together, with people from five different continents working out of our offices in Oslo, Norway. In order to keep growing and continue to draw upon this global pool of talent we are establishing our first office abroad in Romania.

We’re looking for an ambitious individual with a solid technical background that is interested in helping us build both the future of payments and the future of Auka!

Knowledge and experience of working with transactions, idempotent APIs and doing test-driven development are more important than experience on our specific stack. You care about things like code quality and unit testing, as well as performance and scalability.

You have:

  • Several years experience building robust and scalable backends
  • Experience with Python or other dynamic languages
  • Experience from working with transactions, idempotent APIs and test-driven development
  • An interest in building modern financial services that challenge the old and entrenched players in the payment space

Nice to have:

    Experience with any of the following technologies:
  • Google App Engine
  • Google Datastore (NoSQL) for storage
  • Google BigQuery
  • Flask

We offer:

  • Flexible work hours
  • A growing company of 35 people

If you want to apply, we want:

  • A CV with info on what have you done so far – not as a list of names and buzzwords, but as you would explain it to another programmer over a cold beverage
  • What your favorite technical stack is, and more importantly, why
  • Why you work as a developer and what your dream project is

For information and questions, please contact our CTO Erlend Halvorsen: +47 450 63 191
