Java Software Developer

Riga, Latvia

❗ 70% of people in South-East Asia don't have bank accounts. Close to 90% don't have credit history. This means hundreds of millions of people cannot access financial services.

At the same time, the very same people have tons of valuable digital footprint.
Enter Jeff, loan broker for the unbanked. By capturing a large number of diverse alternative data points from various sources, Jeff is on its way to introduce its next generation credit score.

To accelerate our efforts of boosting financial inclusion and accelerate the number of items we bring from backlog to development, to production, we are looking for a Software Developer.

Your tasks will include:

  • Implementing product features and enhancements
  • Closely collaborating with other developers and team members on a daily basis
  • Proactively participating in technical solution and product development decisions
  • Ensuring proper testing and quality of your work
  • Working on back-end features, while also interacting with front-end
  • Actively adding new and maintaining existing partner integrations
  • Working on groundbreaking B2B products and their features - we have no blueprint here, as we are the market makers!

A rockstar candidate for this job:

  • Preferably has worked in FinTech, eCommerce, Travel or Insurance industry
  • Takes ownership of the actions and items entrusted
  • Has at least 1.5 years of hands-on Java experience
  • Preferably has experience with Spring, SQL, React, TypeScript
  • Understands, why one must write unit tests
  • Feels great in dynamic, results-oriented environment

Values that define us & that we seek in new team members:

🔀 Versatility
If multi-functionality and ability to regroup fast is one way how you would describe yourself, we'll get along great.

🙋 Proactivity
The first weeks will most probably be the last weeks when you will get an exact to-do list in Jeff. We stand for people that are proactive, self-driven & can ultimately find and show a better way of carrying out certain tasks or functions.

💡 Business understanding
No matter the role or seniority, you cannot perform at a world-class level if you don't understand what on earth you are building.

📢 Open communication
At Jeff, we give credit to each other where it's due. And we point out the shortcomings as they appear, because everyone succeeds and everyone surely fu*ks up at least twice as often. Be respectful and honest, don't take things personally & do it for the sake of building a better team and product!

🏁 Always going extra mile
We pay competitive salaries and are constantly working on improving our perks' list,
but truly believe it goes both ways. You are coming to a crazy, fast-paced, early stage startup. It goes without saying that results and attitude eat timetable for breakfast here any day of the week.

🌱 Personal growth-oriented
We cannot tell you what skills or knowledge set you apart from great to exceptional in what you do. But we expect you will bring it up yourself & emphasize why it is important to find time or other resources for such learning. If you are not evolving, you are falling behind!

🤘 Ready for Rock'n'Roll
We are a pack of simple people that are very honest, results driven and fast-paced. There are wild corporate parties every now and then, and there are days when every third slack message is a meme or a joke. And there is always Hektors somewhere in the office.
