Opportunity - Thinking about quitting the corporate job? - Brand new fintech startup opportunity!
We are building an engineering team for the development of a new Berlin fintech startup. In a small, high performance team which will be based in Iasi and Berlin you will create the brand new financial technology platform for DFS, a joint venture of Finleap and DVAG, the largest independent financial advisory service in Germany.
This greenfield cloud platform is going to serve a user base of over 9 million customers, and we’re very excited to onboard new colleagues to take over this huge & amazing challenge.
We’re looking for a Senior Java Engineer in Iasi to design and implement from the ground up core components for this fintech platform, and scale the solution to serve millions of users.
DFS is a joint venture of Deutsche Vermögensberatung AG (DVAG) - the largest independent financial advisor in Germany - and FinLeap - a Berlin-based fintech company builder.
Deutsche Fintech Solutions is a digital innovation lab focused on building experience centric financial advisory technology, products and platforms for financial advisers and their customers.
DVAG is Germany's largest independent financial advisory service and offers comprehensive and cross-industry all-financial consulting for a broad section of the population. It serves around six million clients on the topics of finance, pensions and insurance.
FinLeap is Europe’s No. 1 Fintech ecosystem, founded in Berlin in 2014. Renowned for fast execution in building successful, innovative and market-changing Fintech companies.
With over 600 people who are part of 15 Finleap ventures launched, the team is truly international, having more than 50 different nations as part of the team. By building the biggest Fintech Hub in Europe, they are opening their ecosystem for financial players worldwide.
At Thinslices we challenge people to build new businesses. In the long-run we want to make Iasi a great startup ecosystem. In our quest to do that we are driven by continuous learning and we think the greatest perk of working with us is the amazing colleagues who are part of our team.
