About finmid

finmid's mission is to enable software companies to reimagine how their business customers access capital. By productizing the complexity of financial services, finmid empowers companies to offer financial services where FinTech isn't the mission, but enables the mission. More about who we are and what we do here.

About the opportunity

Backend Engineers build the core of finmid products, services, and APIs. As a key member of our growing backend engineering team, you will:

  • Join the team of highly motivated, pragmatic engineers.

  • Impact by solving challenges in the next-gen financial products.

  • Architect, design, and develop products from scratch.

  • Embrace innovational concepts and adopt cutting-edge technologies to achieve our goals.

  • Integrate third-party vendor solutions into backend systems.

  • Participate in pair- and mob-programming sessions with fellow engineers.

  • Share knowledge and conduct talks at internal meet-ups.

  • Collaborate with product designers, business operations, and founders to address challenges and strategically plan for the future.

  • Demonstrate DevOps mindset and ownership over CI/CD infrastructure.

  • Mentor junior engineers and help hire new talent to build a strong team.


  • You have a creative mindset.

  • You take responsibility for results and are ready to go the extra mile to help the team.

  • The ability to find seamlessly simple and pragmatic solutions to complex problems.

  • Architect systems and services with a commitment to high-quality code standards. We work mostly in JVM languages, focusing on Kotlin. While familiarity with JVM languages is a plus, our projects are tailored towards Kotlin development rather than Java. However, languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skills than your knowledge of a particular language or framework.

  • Strong communication and collaboration skills, and a history of working effectively with your cross-functional team and other stakeholders.

  • A desire to perform and grow as an engineer.

Bonus points for

  • Experience with financial or payment technologies.

  • Good understanding and practical experience in micro-services environments (e.g. Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, AWS, etc.)

  • Experience with designing and maintaining public APIs.

  • Experience implementing and designing event-sourced or event-streaming systems (e.g. Kafka, Pulsar).

  • Enjoy building a new team or product and helping make a great team environment.

  • Experience working in a fast-paced startup environment.

  • Experience working with remote teams.


  • We see ourselves as “distributed first” but also have a beautiful office in Berlin where you can work.

  • We are flexible and cover whatever you need to be as productive as possible (e.g. MacOS, IntelliJ IDEA).

  • Home office stipend.

  • 30 days time off.

  • Meaningful equity.

  • Open-minded and transparent culture that includes regular get-together meetings (e.g. All Hands, Brown Bag Lunch, Offsite).
