Oslo, Norway
Posted on Wednesday, March 13, 2024

Strise is a fast-expanding technology company operating out of Oslo. We have built a revolutionary AML (anti-money laundering) Automation Cloud to help top-tier banks, fintechs, and other financial institutions fight financial crime.

Our self-developed graph and AI technology centers around connecting insights about B2B clients and providing intelligent information to our customers. Vipps, SpareBank 1, and Nordea are just a few that have had great success in using Strise.

We make an impact by making it easier and faster for banks to fulfill their mission of uncovering financial violations like money laundering. After successfully becoming trusted by many of the biggest financial institutions in Scandinavia, and securing $10M in funding from Atomico, we are now venturing into the UK, followed by the rest of Europe. We’re well on our way to becoming the global standard in anti-money laundering technology.

Strise is on the hunt for a skilled Backend Developer to strengthen our team of software engineers. You will be responsible for designing and implementing backend solutions bringing our pioneering AML platform to the global market. As part of our tech team, you will work closely with our design and product team to take our products to the next level in scale, performance, and customer value. Going out of your comfort zone to explore a new idea, testing a new library, or simply giving a facelift to an old module, will all be part of your job. Your contributions will be crucial in ensuring that Strise continues to lead with future-ready products in the fight against financial crime.

Join us in our journey to redefine industry standards with AI-driven solutions.

Some technologies we use:

  • For our backend services, Scala is the main programming language. But we also occasionally use Python.
  • All of Strise runs in Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
  • We use gRPC and Google Pub/Sub to communicate between services.
  • For external communication, we opt for GraphQL
  • Our services typically run in Kubernetes (GKE), but we’re also exploring a move towards a more serverless setup with Cloud Run.
  • All of our infrastructure is Terraformed.
  • One of our tech beliefs that we put a lot of emphasis on is to make as much of tech as someone elses problem by introducing managed services. We are heavy users of GCP native offerings such as Vertex AI, BigQuery, Cloud SQL, Cloud Pub/Sub etc.
  • We’ve also made a commitment to a few other technologies such as Neo4j and Elasticsearch.

What you will do:

  • Design, develop, and maintain highly secure backend systems using advanced technologies, focusing on Scala, GCP'S along with GraphQL, Neo4j, Elasticsearch, and close engagement with AI technologies.

  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams, including product management, design, and QA, to ensure and shape the delivery of high-quality software.

  • Take a proactive approach to breaking down projects into individual tasks and provide valuable contributions so projects are delivered on time.

  • Stand at the forefront of the rapidly evolving technological world, setting trends and pioneering shifts.

  • Stay updated with burgeoning technologies, successful practices, and advancements in AI, including LLMs.

  • Shape system development with efficient, scalable, and innovative code.

  • Contribute to the overall architecture and design of the systems, and help identify and implement best practices for software development.
