Company Description

About Tradeshift

Tradeshift is a unicorn in the fintech industry. We are disrupting a typically stagnant environment by connecting companies of all sizes and providing them with the platform and network needed to create value from old processes like procurement, invoicing, payments, and workflow. We recognize that business is both messy and social - two revelations that have driven the development of Tradeshift, a platform for all your business interactions. We work hard and our teams have great freedom and responsibility to choose the best solutions, technologies and approaches to evolve the product to the next level.

We believe that being a global, multicultural company is a tremendous strength and we have people working from 18 different countries with hubs in Bucharest, Copenhagen, Kuala Lumpur, and San Francisco. We believe that if we truly focus on how to work distributed and collaborate across locations and (home) offices, we will not only enjoy work more but also build better products for our customers, and ultimately be a better company. 

Job Description

About The Role

In Tradeshift Pay we provide solutions and services to enable, scale and automate electronic invoice handling and payments, using the world’s largest business network and artificial intelligence in the shape of a distributed, microservice-based, cloud native system.

Our Copenhagen-based team, Document Processing, builds the product functionality that allows our customers to manage the execution of complex business processes by the right set of authorized users. We build and maintain a number of backend microservices and frontend apps. We work closely with two other Pay teams to deliver new features for the Pay product, also collaborating with other teams across Tradeshift to build quality, shared components across the platform.

What you'll be doing

As part of the Document Processing team, you will together with the other engineers in the team take ownership of backend code, discuss and review code architecture and design, and regularly challenge and improve the process. You will get a unique opportunity to develop your talent, as our challenges constantly evolve within our team.

We believe in team growth, ownership, development and quality assurance. Your involvement will start from product inception through architecture and design and production support. Our teams have great autonomy and responsibility to choose the best solutions, technologies and approaches to bringing Tradeshift to the next level. Of course, this will not be easy; you will face a lot of complex challenges in our growing, global, fast-paced startup.


What a day is like

You will be working with product managers and designers in a global environment to define and ship a new product experience, migrate existing legacy code to microservices, create new microservices and new modules within the platform and work on feature requests and prioritized bugs that are crucial to our enterprise customers.

You will be writing code covered by unit and integration tests and use git, with an open-source-like workflow, using forks and pull requests. You will work with technologies like Java, Spring, Postgresql, Elasticsearch, React/Redux, Javascript, CSS/Less but also be exposed to DevOps technologies like Kubernetes, Docker, Consul and supporting tools like Datadog, Sentry, or Splunk. You will be writing high-quality, tested and peer-reviewed code, will help review code from other team members and contribute to what the team is delivering using a CI/CD release pipeline.

You will brainstorm with the team on technical architecture or design options, implementation alternatives and help solve day-to-day issues in a collaborative effort. 

You will be involved in all aspects of the product development, from user story to final implementation and production support. You will identify opportunities and implement solutions to improve engineering productivity.
