Your employer: This fintech scale-up determines the future of payments!

A successful group of tech entrepreneurs who had previously built a Fintech unicorn from scratch came together with a brilliant plan to change the future of payments worldwide with disruptive, real-time products. Never before has it happened within payments that so many brilliant technicians with niche knowledge came together. Working here is like Amazon when they had 50 engineers! With these brilliant people, they do what organizations of 1500 people cannot do.

Recently, the best engineers from Google, Amazon, and Facebook have chosen to work for this Fintech scale-up, because of its unique engineering culture, product, and inspiring technical management. The company culture is international with people from all over the world and is experienced as open, friendly, and informal. What makes the culture so unique is that there is literally no hierarchy!

The engineering culture is driven by the CTO who wrote the first code himself and is involved hands-on on a daily basis. Furthermore, everyone here is very happy with the fast decision cycles, direct discussions with management, knowledge sharing sessions, and maximum autonomy. The mindset here is that the best engineers perform optimally with freedom and responsibility and you are continuously triggered to come up with innovative ideas. You can make your own schedule and feel free to work 35 hours when the results are achieved.

The conditions are attractive because in addition to a high salary (up to €103.000) you will receive €20.000 stocks, which will be worth millions in a few years! You will also immediately receive a permanent contract, an excellent pension, an infinite training and conference budget, the possibility to contribute to open source, and a large relocation package (if you now live outside the Netherlands).
