ABOUT THE ROLE

Want to be part of our product development organization that has over 60 talented professionals? We are continuing our strong growth in Europe and for that, we need to scale up our tech teams accordingly. We are especially looking for senior developers, but we are in continuous search for the best professionals with a drive to improve as well.

As a Software Engineer in the Factory domain at Swappie, you have a great opportunity to directly impact the very core of our business, working in a cross-functional team that aims to constantly optimise and automate our refurbishment operations. Our work includes integrating robotics, developing manual operations and creating new refurbishment and repair capabilities. The product team is divided into smaller development teams which each focus on their own quarterly objectives. Each focus team works independently and is allowed to decide how they get the best results. 

We currently work with Python, Django, PostgreSQL, Kubernetes and Google Cloud, but our tools evolve with our team. We are looking for a person experienced in working with backend technologies.

IN THIS ROLE YOU GET A CHANCE TO

  • Develop robust software solutions to improve our refurbishment and repair capabilities.
  • Collaborate with diverse stakeholders, from our in-house refurbishment team to robotics software providers, for example
  • Change the status quo for inventory management and other warehouse-related management projects, including introducing automation and efficiency improvements that positively impact the business and other teams
  • Build a strong engineering culture and bring scalable ways of working

WE WOULD BE EXCITED TO HEAR FROM YOU IF YOU

  • Have a track record in software engineering 
  • Are comfortable working within a quickly growing team, and are excited about knowledge sharing and collaboration with non-technical stakeholders
  • Have experience with fast-moving projects and initiatives, remaining flexible while also pushing features and updates to deployment with ease
  • Love building user-friendly projects informed by business intelligence
  • Are excited about testing, and would love to play a key role in driving improvements to our testing and deployment infrastructure
  • Previous experience from ecommerce companies is a definite plus! 

A COUPLE OF GOOD REASONS YOU MIGHT ENJOY WORKING WITH US

  • Become a part of our global team: We are a diverse group of skilled, ambitious, fun, kind, laid-back, and professional people from more than 60 nationalities—our neat offices are located in Helsinki, Amsterdam, and Tallinn. And as you have probably guessed, our working language is English.
  • Make a difference: By refurbishing smartphones to the highest standards, we reduce environmental waste, empower our customers to make more sustainable choices, and build a better tomorrow. Being part of the solution, not part of the pollution, thrives us every day.
  • Be a part of our culture of trust: As we only have resourceful and insightful grownups working with us, we have plenty of freedom and responsibility that we use in the best interest of Swappie. We share information, learnings, insights, plans and achievements as we know that we are all in this together.
  • Learn and grow like never before: We offer a wide range of development and growth opportunities and encourage our people to seek new ways to improve constantly.
  • Be yourself: We are working hard to make our Diversity & Inclusion Manifesto a reality in everything we do: we create a diverse and inclusive workplace where we have equal opportunities to grow and feel safe. We respect varied backgrounds, experiences, races, ethnicities, religions, genders, gender identities, gender expressions, and sexual orientations.
  • Enjoy organized working models: We offer the possibility to work remotely from abroad for one month per year, with certain restrictions regarding role and country.
  • Furthermore, you get an attractive salary and a good option package, nice perks and benefits, and much more! If you need to relocate, we are there to empower you. No matter where you are moving from, we will support you to make every step of the process as easy as possible for you and your loved ones.

We’re growing exponentially and welcome the best talent to join our green revolution! Does this sound like an exciting opportunity you don’t want to miss? If yes, we would love to hear from you! 🚀
