Tesseract’s vision is to connect the worlds of traditional finance and crypto with innovative products. We are now looking for one or more experienced Backend Engineers to reinforce our ever-growing team to make the vision come true.

As a Backend Engineer you will join a growing team of 6 tech professionals responsible for building and maintaining our latest product release, the Earn API. Our partners integrate the Earn API product into their own platform, and the product allows end-users to deposit digital assets or cryptos into our lending, DeFi, and staking products. This is a REST API product that mainly consists of microservices, and is built with TypeScript. In this role, your daily tasks include developing and improving the Earn API product by delivering scalable and maintainable code, building integrations, writing automated tests and performing code reviews. Together with your team, Product Owners, Architects and QA Specialists, you will specify the product requirements, pick the right tools and shape the Earn product. You will also get to participate in developing the future product range.

You might be the talent we are looking for if you have several years of experience in backend engineering. We do not expect you to have previous experience in cryptocurrencies, but we hope you want to learn about the industry and roll up your sleeves with coding. As you will be working in a dynamic environment, we appreciate willingness to bring forward your insights and that you are not afraid to question whether things could be done even better. Good teamwork skills and willingness to work in a startup environment are essential – we hope you adapt to change and you like to get things done. Tesseract encourages a hybrid working model, where remote is as good of an option as working at the office. However, we’d like you to join workshops and occasional coding sessions at the Helsinki office.

Tesseract offers you:

  • Position in a startup company that has strong revenue growth and is funded by some of the most respected investors in the industry

  • Genuine opportunity to contribute to building innovative solutions

– Role in a company that is in a strong scale-up phase with transactions from all over the world – you will be an essential part of the growth

  • Chance to join the exciting world of cryptos without prior knowledge of the industry

  • Brand-new office, lots of out-of-office activities and quarterly off-site strategy workshops

  • Competitive pay and a stock-option plan

  • Four weeks of paid holiday
We require you to have:

  • Minimum of five years of experience in backend engineering

  • Experience and basic understanding of TypeScript

  • Good knowledge of PostgreSQL or another relational database

  • Self-oriented approach as well as willingness and ability to learn new technologies and practices

– A startup mindset – you get things done and you understand that everything isn’t perfect yet

  • Fluency in English language

We consider as an additional asset:

  • Experience working in the SaaS field

  • Interest or knowledge of financial or cryptocurrency industry
