Technical Coach / Architect

Technical Coach / Architect

We need a talented person to join us on this crazy journey and help us deliver our products all across Europe!

At Minna Technologies we are on a mission to bring power to the modern consumer through effortless subscription management.

Founded in 2015, we are currently one of Europe's fastest growing FinTech companies. Through partners such as Swedbank, Danske Bank, Telia, and E.ON, we help more than 10 million consumers to effortlessly manage their subscription services.

About the job

We are a community of software engineers working across 6 product teams. The Minna teams are largely autonomous in their day-to-day, and yet in some areas we need to coordinate and align. We now need someone who’ll take a technical leadership position in our engineering community, and who’ll be caring for our tech stack and architectural evolution efforts. 

In this role you’ll work very closely with our CTO Marcus Lönnberg to understand and help shape the big picture of technology, business and operations at Minna. Over time you’ll develop a keen understanding of how the Minna ecosystem fits together, and how to help influence it towards ever greater effectiveness.

Our main challenge ahead is one of scaling, as we launch across the world and onboard hundreds of millions of new users. At the same time our engineering organisation is growing and changing. This puts new demands on our tech stack and development process - which both needs to adapt to support new team constellations and ways of working, all while ensuring that our teams remain fast moving and agile. 

Many of us at Minna have experience of stereotypical command-and-control architects, which is something that would never play with us. Here we’re looking for someone that can work collaboratively and lead through soft influence and coaching, instead of trying to formulate a detailed architecture and dictate it to the teams. 

You’ll often work together with stakeholders from many parts of the business, and facilitate collaboration between teams to solve challenging problems. You’ll be a technical mentor for our engineering community, to scale our organisation and help elevate the software craftsmanship across the company. In your previous roles we think people naturally sought your advice and gravitated towards following your lead, not because of your position but because your insights and strategic vision were appreciated.

Our stack is based on Scala, Typescript and React and running on Kubernetes in Google Cloud Platform. Long experience with our stack is however not a requirement; we believe that the right candidate will be a keen learner and have a broad experience that easily transfers to new areas.

What we are looking for

  • Sensitive to developers needs and can create warm relationships with our teams.
  • Humble and comfortable as a servant leader and change management agent. 
  • Training and inspiring developers has been a thing you’ve enjoyed doing.
  • Ability to keep the big picture in mind and communicate the technical vision.
  • Skilled at observing patterns and systemic issues, foreseeing challenges and figuring out innovative and “simple but not simplistic” solutions.
  • Good judgement on how different choices affects both the business and all the technical non-functional qualities.
  • Experience from backend development and software engineering.
  • Front-end and full-stack development experience is a bonus, but not a requirement.
  • Familiarity with architecting distributed and scalable microservice based systems.
  • Know your way around the JVM, Linux and some cloud platform.
  • Proficient English oral and written communications skills. We’re a multicultural company and Swedish is not a requirement in this job.
  • Skilled at adapting your communications to the receiver - be it developers, customers, business people or auditors.
