Senior Backend Engineer

Worldwide | Nov. 25, 2023

Report as Closed

Company: Holvi

Salary: $89,582 - $99,536

Type: Remote

Employment: Full-time



We 💛 small business

We founded Holvi in 2011, in Helsinki. As self-employed people wading through oceans of paperwork, we noticed something funny going on – traditional banks were giving us the cold shoulder. Why not help ourselves? We asked. And so, with time and effort (and lots of coffee), we mastered small business finance – and Holvi was born.

Our vision is simple: Eliminate the distractions of financial admin and simplify work life, because running a business is hard enough. Small businesses shouldn’t have to worry about spreadsheets and lost receipts.

Since our inception as a pioneering fintech, we've experienced our fair share of challenges and growth. We explored different paths, and from those experiences, we've evolved. Today, we stand as a team-owned and profitable company, proud of our journey.

Right now, we’re looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to join our Spanish team. If you want to help us make running a business a little easier, Holvi is for you.

Each focus team has its own developers, designers and product owner. As part of our interview process, we’ll explain each team in more detail and chat about which one might fit you best.
