Senior Backend Engineer
We believe that the future of money and the internet should be more open and fair. That everybody should have equal access to economic opportunities, and that this brave new future is possible. It can be realised through crypto.
That's why we started Argent: the world's most simple and secure smart wallet. Empowering you to control and prosper from your digital assets and identity.
We launched in 2018 and are fortunate to be backed by Silicon Valley and Europe's top investors, including Paradigm, Index Ventures, Creandum and firstminute capital.
We're now getting ready to bring crypto's benefits to millions more people.
To help us achieve this, we're looking for a talented senior engineer to join our backend development team. Our backend consists mostly of Java micro-services and a serverless data processing pipeline in Node.js. Our infrastructure runs on AWS (Docker/Beanstalk), deployed and maintained with Terraform.

- Strong computer science, security and networking fundamentals
You'll have expert knowledge of:
- Database design (Postgres) and data processing (queues, caches)
- API design, management and security
- Functional programming and building serverless systems (AWS Lambda)
- Unit and integration testing to deliver high quality code
- Deploying, monitoring and scaling apps in a production environment
We're also looking for experience with:

- Equity in a high growth startup backed by the investors of Spotify and Slack.
- Autonomy - you decide how to achieve your best work.
- Trips across Europe - for one week every three months we collaborate in person, explore new solutions and have fun. So far we’ve stayed in Nice, Toulouse, Brussels, Lisbon and Barcelona. We'll resume these when safe following COVID.
