Senior Backend Developer

Penneo is a place where people work to make a life, not just a living

Who are we?

Penneo is a fast-growing RegTech (Regulatory Technology) SaaS company headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. We successfully serve customers in industries like accounting, legal and finance, enabling them to manage and automate their business critical processes and documents in a compliant, secure and effortless way. We are on a mission to take over Europe coming from a stronghold in the Scandinavian countries. In June 2020, we secured investment for growth and development through a successful IPO.

We are now searching for a senior backend developer to join our awesome and growing product development team in maximizing value to our existing and future customers.

Who are we looking for?

As a backend developer at Penneo you will collaborate with a multicultural team of highly skilled and open-minded developers.

The position is full-time and you will be based together with our product development team in Penneo’s HQ in Copenhagen.

We expect you to have worked 5+ years developing software products, preferably in product teams with direct responsibility for customer happiness. We are looking for someone who understands how products work, beyond “just” software.

We work with the following technologies: Docker, PHP, Kotlin, Java, MySQL, and we would love it if you have expertise in more than one language/framework. Your tech stack is not as important as your approach to continuous learning, individually and as a team. We believe in  delivering value to our customers over perfect code.

  • You are able to balance individual contributions with team efforts
  • You are daring and ready to go new ways to solve technical problems

  • You are familiar with developing/improving service oriented architecture

What energizes you?

  • Productive collaboration with product development team
  • Improving documentation and code practices
  • Participating in team activities

Why should you apply for this role?

If you are not already convinced to learn more about the position by the above, then this might not be the right match for you, but we do have a few more benefits up our sleeves:

  • An open and informal workplace culture, where all team members respect one another and assume responsibility and accountability for their work, while also having fun! 
  • Lots of responsibility and opportunities to learn and develop your career
  • Office location in the city center, close to metro, public transportation and vibrant social life
  • Monthly Friday Bars and lots of social events

Perks & Benefits

In Penneo, we believe that work should not be having negative impact in your personal life. Therefore, we do have some benefits to make things a bit easier for you

  • Great lunch

    Lunch is an important refill for getting energy, and also for having a break and connecting with your colleagues. At Penneo, you can enjoy catered lunch and fresh fruit every day!

  • Fitness

    Exercising is healthy for both the body and mind. At Penneo, we have a collaboration with a fitness gym in our neighborhood, where you can benefit from team classes or individual training before or after work, so that you can stay fit and energised!

  • Friday bars and company trips

    Every first Friday in the month, we have a Friday bar at the office. Penneo serves drinks and snacks, usually with a DJ and most often with guests present as well. It is a lot of fun and gives us the opportunity to socialize, connect and have fun together!

  • Flexibility

    We want to be flexible because we do not want work to be in the way of important stuff! Some of us have kids to pick up from school, or need to attend an exam, or a dentist appointment? Don't worry, we always try to make it work out!
