Job description

Swan is looking for a Senior 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.

✨ Your missions:

  • 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


At Swan, we build a product that is mainly designed to be consumed by other enginners. As such, we expect Engineers to take a real role in co-building the product we offer, proposing ideas and challenging what’s doable.

To facilitate this, Engineers are split into independent squads of 4 to 8 engineers working alongside dedicated Product Managers. They build together the roadmap on a quarterly basis and are able to iterate on it in cycle of 2 to 4 weeks.

Because the stability of our system is important, we expect engineers to come up with technical projects that help us scale and to add them to the roadmap like we would any feature.

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 4 years of experience as a Software Developer

  • Mastery of common back-end issues

  • Technologies: Very good knowledge of NodeJS & TypeScript

  • Familiar with automated testing and continuous integration

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

  • Knowledge of GraphQL and Kafka

  • An interest in functional programming

  • An interest for open source

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

  • Languages: Good working abilities in English

Our ideal teammate: Sociable. Skilled. Empathetic. 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 imposture 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.
