Job description

Swan is looking for a Software Engineer to join its tech team of 60+ people. The Engineering team is by far the largest at Swan. This team includes Software developers, who build payments and end-customer applications, as well as Infrastructure, DevOps, and Security.
Swan has a diverse team of engineers from all over the place. Co-building is at the heart of the way we work. We believe in challenging each other. Being frank, but empathetic is the best way to get things done! It’s also more fun.

Are you rigorous, pro-active and willing to collaborate with high-level business and technical teams? You want to push the state of the art and want to build with us the heart of the next banking infrastructure ?

✨ Your mission:

  • You will be technically responsible for one or more projects.

  • You will have the opportunity to solve problems in one of the most demanding IT domains with a reactive architecture.

  • You will design with the product team the bank by API.

  • You will improve the performance of a system with a rapidly growing load.

  • You will ensure the respect of the architecture rules and of the automated tests

Our technical environment

  • NodeJS

  • TypeScript

  • GraphQL

  • PostgreSQL

  • Kafka

  • Docker

  • K8S

  • AWS


Engineers at Swan are not here to get orders and just start coding, they’re here to co-build. To get heavily involved with the product. Swan’s devs collaborate heavily with the product team and are always proposing ideas and challenging what’s doable.

We follow a methodology that’s similar to “Shape up”:

3-week cycles: Co-building is central to how we work. Each month, the product and engineering teams work together to plan goals and develop specifications for the next 3 weeks. During these weeks, we do our best to reach goals, all while planning and designing projects for the next cycle.
1-week cooldown: After a cycle of building, it’s cooldown week. We use this time to take care of the remaining tasks and improve tools and processes.

Our product

Swan makes it extremely easy for anyone to embed banking features, whether they’re a dev or an entrepreneur (or both). It’s exciting to build a bank that can be integrated by anyone! We’d love for Swan to become the reflex for European engineers who want to build something with banking and payments.

The banking domain is a fascinating and challenging place to grow your skills. It’s state-of-the-art and covers everything you’ve learned at school: security, consistency, and scalability, but building a “bank” is a lot different from building another type of startup. In banking, you can’t afford to have little bugs (imagine messing up someone’s account statement). That’s why Swan puts security and robustness first and foremost. Join Swan and you’ll be pushed to reach the highest standards of quality and precision.

Preferred experience

You’re a great match if:

  • Experience: At least 2 years of experience as a Software Developer

  • Awareness of key back-end issues

  • Technologies: Good knowledge of NodeJS & TypeScript

  • First experience in automated testing and continuous integration

  • Ideally a good knowledge of GraphQL and Kafka

  • Ideally an experience in distributed systems or micro-service architecture

  • Interest in Functional Programming

  • An attraction for open source

  • A good culture of technology trends (news, meetups…)

  • Languages: Good working abilities in English

Our ideal teammate: Empathetic. Skilled. Frank. We love to challenge each other, and we leave our egos at the door.

It’s okay if you don’t tick all the boxes — don’t let imposter syndrome prevent you from applying! 🙌 

Swan is committed to providing a caring work environment for all employees, regardless of age, sex, disability, sexual orientation, race, religion, or belief.

When it comes to recruitment, we’re interested in your work experience, skills, and overall personality. Because diversity makes the workplace stronger and is necessary for Swan’s success, we are intensifying efforts to incorporate concrete actions to help us improve in this area.
