Be part of the embedded banking movement
Swan, a European fintech company, is the easiest way to add banking features to your product. This can be called “Banking-as-a-Service” or “Embedded finance”. Swan was built so that anyone can start embedding banking features within just minutes of visiting our website. Swan is truly fast and easy to use.
In September 2023, Swan closed their Series B funding round at €37m. With 100 customers across Europe already (including include Carrefour, Pennylane, Alma, and Ride.Capital) they want to double down on their core strengths and add more payment collection methods, such as direct debits and card payments. Swan have processed over €7 billion worth of transactions and are a Mastercard principal member and a licensed financial institution, passported across Europe.
They have a hybrid remote-work policy, with 100+ Swanees across offices in Paris, Berlin, with Barcelona on the way! Wherever you’re coming from, come as you are! They’re open to all kinds of people, from all walks of life. If you’re excited about joining a European fintech adventure, Swan is the way!
Swan is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join its tech team of 40+ developers.
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, QA, 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:
✨ Our technical environment
Engineers at Swan are not here to get orders and just start coding, they’re here to co-build. To get heavily involved with the product. Swan’s devs collaborate heavily with the product team and are always proposing ideas and challenging what’s doable.
We follow a methodology that’s similar to “Shape up”:
3-week cycles: Co-building is central to how we work. Each month, the product and engineering teams work together to plan goals and develop specifications for the next 3 weeks. During these weeks, we do our best to reach goals, all while planning and designing projects for the next cycle. 1-week cooldown: After a cycle of building, it’s cooldown week. We use this time to take care of the remaining tasks and improve tools and processes.
✨ 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. Your mission:
