Job description

Software Engineers at Qonto craft polished user experiences, highly scalable APIs and robust banking services, all to help create the finance solution all businesses love.

The backend engineering team at Qonto currently has over 80 highly skilled engineers, from all over the world, working closely in cross-functional teams to shape our finance solutions. They participate in the discussions on the direction of our banking product, manage how we will handle our ever-growing user base needs, and deliver high-quality products in a fast-paced environment.

 

👩‍💻🧑‍💻 As a Lead Backend Engineer at Qonto, you will

Manage a team of 5 to 8 Backend Engineers

• Coordinate with engineering, product and design leads to define a vision and strategy for your cross-functional team

• Drive the delivery of your cross-functional team to help us meet business objectives

Mentor, pair, and delegate work to foster the professional and technical growth of your teammates

• Help build a collaborative, inclusive, and supportive team culture and make it shine

• Run 1o1s and quarterly progress reviews to provide regular feedback to your team members

• Run interviews to hire new team members

• Design, build, test, document, run, review and maintain code in Python, Golang or Ruby

• Support a critical service used by tens of thousands of users on a daily basis

Our primary languages are Python, Golang and Ruby on the backend, EmberJS on the frontend, and Kotlin and Swift for our Mobile applications. Our platform runs on a Kubernetes cluster hosted on AWS, with PostgreSQL as our database of choice, using Kafka for our event-driven architecture and ELK for logging and auditing, among many other tools, services, and applications.

However, not mastering our stack is not an issue at all! A lot of Qontoers have learned Python, Go and/or Ruby since they joined us.

As long as you are willing to learn, it doesn't matter if you've been using Java, Javascript/Typescript or Scala.

🧠 What you could work on

As part of our Engineering Department, you will be the backend lead of a cross-functional team. Every cross-functional team handles a part of our product. A few examples of these teams are:

💳 Cards: the team responsible for all things cards. On the backend, this includes but is not limited to: all things related to card shipment, paying with cards, billing for cards, and card security.

🏦 Ledger: the team working on our Core Banking System, which allows us to store transactions in an accurate, scalable, and auditable way.

✈️ Onboarding: the team guiding users through a delightful and frictionless sign-up experience.

🤔 What you can expect

• Join Qonto who is winning SME banking in Europe. Qonto is on track to power one million SMEs in 2025

• Work in a fast-paced environment with a strong focus on quality

• Managerial training over several weeks in-house by experts 

• Leverage our values and our culture of continuous improvement to boost your impact as a leader

• Share knowledge among the whole tech and product team (Internal and external talk, Weekly meetings, Tech Monthly) and the community (articles, Meetups)

🤝 Your future Head Of

One of our Heads of Backend at Qonto is David, and he's managing teams working on Platform Services. He worked in both France and the UK, initially as a Software Engineer within all-size businesses and then in technical and team leadership positions.

The next step in his career was another startup, but this time in the video game industry to build a data-driven platform from scratch. 

What can he bring to you and the team?

David has a lot of experience in Software Craftsmanship and Extreme programming. You will have the opportunity to work in a department that values high-quality software. He also fosters and promotes a highly collaborative workplace and embraces ambitious and difficult technical challenges.

Your collaboration?

You can expect a very respectful relationship based on trust, empowerment, and ownership. David always makes himself extremely available and will live up to the high expectation he sets for his team members.
