Back-End Engineer (Java/Kotlin) - NYC
We are The Mobile Bank.
Our vision is to build a bank the world loves to use.
Technology and design empower everything we do.
N26 is Europe’s first Mobile Bank with a full European banking license. We have over 2.3 million customers across 24 markets. Our team of over 800 employees in 3 locations is concentrated on reinventing the banking experience for the digital generation. Valentin Stalf and Maximilian Tayenthal founded N26 in 2013 and launched the initial product in early 2015. Since January 2015, N26 has been available for Android, iOS, and desktop. N26 has raised more than $215 million from investors including Tencent, Allianz X, Peter Thiel’s Valar Ventures, Li Ka-Shing’s Horizons Ventures, Earlybird Ventures, Battery Ventures, in addition to members of the Zalando management board, and Redalpine Ventures.
Once here you will?
As a Software Engineer you’re part of a high performing team, building technologies that make banking more human. You’ll be working across the technology stack implementing services and integrations to bring our banking product to life in the U.S. Our tight-knit team includes product owners, designers, front-end engineers with whom you’ll be collaborating with on a daily basis. You’ll be encouraged to architect new features and see them through to completion in live environments. Leverage your extensive experience in previous projects to guard code quality through reviewing of pull requests, and take opportunities to mentor juniors. And we hope you won’t hesitate to share your knowledge with your colleagues through Lightning Talks.
N26 is powered by a microservice architecture running mainly on the JVM with Spring Boot and Java/Kotlin. We have a strong CI/CD operational culture on the foundation of container orchestration, service discovery and cloud native technologies. PostgreSQL and redis are our main data stores (we’re big fans), but we also have message brokers, data streaming, and reactive workflows as backends. As we transform from monolithic applications into more scalable and resilient distributed systems, there is an opportunity for impactful fundamental change. For more information please check out our stackshare page.
What you will bring along
Significant ownership of applications in large-scale production systems. Experience with imperative and declarative programming paradigms. Sound knowledge in relational database systems (preferably PostgreSQL) and understanding the semantics and tradeoffs between different database architectures, e.g. relational vs. NoSQL. Be aware of other models of inter-service communication besides REST (queues and event streams). You are passionate about technology and want to share this passion with your team. You keep up with the latest trends and are not afraid to propose some of these new things during our GSDD and share your findings afterwards with the rest of the engineering organization. A relentless drive for clean and well-tested code which shows during code reviews. You use these reviews to teach best practices in developing large-scale distributed systems.
