THE JOB AT BACKBASE

As a Principal Backend Developer you will help define and execute the technical vision for the product. You will help with the prototyping and validation of new architectural and technological ideas, ways of working, efficiency gains and refactoring initiatives. You'll work across departments, foster collaboration, and you'll be the face of our product vision and success internally and externally. You will also interact with teams from the Pre-Sales and Customer Success Departments to ensure technology feedback from customers and field engineers is incorporated. You will have 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 will take on the expert role in all topics related to Backend.
This role is part of a highly skilled multidisciplinary product team in R&D. As part of the team, you will contribute to new and existing functionalities, proof of concepts, and technical improvements that will be implemented in the Retail Banking domain of the Digital Banking Platform. Your specific focus will be Payment Capabilities, but ultimately you would also be expected to contribute to the delivery of other capabilities within the Retail Banking domain.
Backbase provides a modern software solution developed in 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.
The underlying technology runs on the best of breed technology available today such as Spring Boot, 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
