Working at Backbase keeps me motivated all the time in learning new things in the mobile world. The architecture of the projects, the components, the way the widgets are built, everything excites me.

Mahesh Venkat Senior Android Engineer, US Hub
The migration of AIB from CXP5 to CX6 has been a good challenge. The knowledge was with people, not in documents. So we had to chase and collaborate with different people and often figure things out ourselves. On the other hand, we had pressure from the client, and the deadline was tight. It made me feel alive!

Isuert Mjalti Frontend Engineer, EMEA Hub
Working in Backbase gave me the right balance between work and life, customization and out-of-the-box, specific and re-usable solutions, easy and tough clients. It is from this mix that I get inspiration for my daily activities.

I get to do way more than sit behind the computer and code. My work also includes going onsite to clients, presenting and explaining the benefits of our product, working with developers from all over the world.

THE JOB AT BACKBASE

As a Principal Backend Engineer, you help the organisation to ensure the technical vision is known and implemented in development activities. You help prototyping and validating new architecture and technology ideas, ways of working, efficiency gains and refactoring initiatives. You work across departments, you collaborate and contribute to multiple projects simultaneously, and are the face of our product vision and success, both internally and externally. You also interact with teams from pre-sales and Customer Success to ensure technology feedback from customers and field engineers is incorporated. You provide advice based on experience and deep technical understanding of software development, practices and frameworks. You lead by example, radiate our way of working and our path to success. You take on the expert role in all topics related to Backend.

Backbase provides a modern software solution developed in the microservices architecture, ensuring financial institutions can build on the top of cutting-edge technology. As such, many modern principles have been adopted such as continuous integration and delivery. We have also adopted Agile practices that contribute to rapid delivery, with decisions being driven out of the team with autonomy rather than top down.

Our solutions are built as microservices using Java, OpenAPI, and Spring Boot and deployed on various internal and public cloud environments using Kubernetes/Helm/Docker, coupled with our own in-house libraries to ensure consistent delivery to a highly regulated banking market. Our technology drives solutions in a variety of ways for customers, from Cloud-native, globally scaled deployments to on-premise managed application servers, demanding smart thinking and innovative solutions from our people. apply now
