Finally done with school and university? Looking to move out of the rat race? That’s awesome! Congratulations! You must be super proud of yourself and excited to kick-start your career as a Scala Engineer! This is an exciting moment that is full of potential. Are you wondering which company you should join now? We bet you want to join one that aligns with your own values.
At SwissBorg we believe that:
- Leadership can come from anybody. Anybody is able to speak up, be heard and have an impact immediately.
- Some engineers will develop managerial skills, while others will prefer to focus on technical skills. As we value both sets as equally important, we don't consider one being superior to the other and this is reflected in our career ladder.
- The best solutions come out of the collaboration of a diverse group of people, that is why we nurture an environment where everyone feels welcome
- At SwissBorg, we believe that engineers are doing their best work in an environment where they feel safe, can learn and grow.
If you are curious, passionate and hard working, you will find yourself among a group of outstanding mentors who will help you grow as an engineer and as a person. If on top of that, you are passionate about the blockchain and the crypto ecosystem, you will find yourself at home with us!
Who are we?
We are SwissBorg, a FinTech startup headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Our flagship product, the SwissBorg app, offers over 550,000+ users the best price and liquidity across 16 fiat and 17 cryptos, as well as giving them the opportunity to earn passive income with our Smart Yield account.

What you might be doing:

    • Develop and grow as an engineer who is recognised for their key contributions

What you might bring:

    • Fresh knowledge of at least one JVM-based language (Java, Scala, Kotlin, …) and a basic understanding of functional programming concepts. Scala is not a requirement but a willingness to learn it is expected
    • Some exposure to JVM technologies and RDBMS appreciated
    • Some experience with Kafka and CQRS/Event Sourcing architectures would be the cherry on the cake
    • We are looking for curious engineers with a strong sense of ownership and entrepreneurial thinking
    • Flexible, proactive, organized, detail-oriented attitude
    • Able to communicate in English easily
    • Experience in the finance industry is a plus

- Flexible work hours
- Annual team retreats with colleagues around the world
- Continuous learning and development opportunities
- Oh and are you planning on having a kid? That’s great! We have a bunch of those: you’ll get time off to enjoy that (other) adventure!
If you recognise yourself in this description, apply! We would love to meet you!
