Senior Backend Engineer

Let me guess

You’ve been working in this industry for many years, you still enjoy it, but it doesn’t challenge you anymore. You feel like it’s time to give back and focus on improving the society around you.

You’ve also been enjoying working from home, during the past 2 years, but you miss some social interaction now and then.

Got you

At Gimi, we believe that Financial Superskills are essential in a modern cashless society and that kids should learn early-on how to earn, save and spend their own money. So we’re building the best personal finance app on the planet – for kids and parents alike. Founded in Stockholm in 2015, Gimi aims to become the world’s leading financial platform for young people.

Through integrations with banks and financial service providers, we make the educational aspect much more tangible, by teaching children how to use real money.

Looking ahead, Gimi will transform to an ed-tech company where we will continue our focus of teaching children and young adults about money, always looking into trends and technology to find new ways to reach children.

And if you like to work from home, that’s fine. If you like to work from the office, that's also fine. Come to the office in Slussen, grab a desk, meet everyone, have some nice whiteboard discussions and treat yourself to some nice restaurant made food with 3D people.
