As a Mobile/Web Frontend Engineer, you will:

• Actively share knowledge and document insights to support continuous team improvement and collaboration

Our Tech stack includes:
• Typescript, VueJs, D3js, Mapboxgl, RESTful API and more on the frontend
• Python, Go, Scala, Postgresql, ElasticSearch and more on the backend

You may be a fit if...

• You want to work in a fast, high-growth startup environment

But you REALLY need to join us because...

• Interesting product & challenging technical problems to solve: our market is very specialized and quite complicated! This means we build real algos and there’s some serious software engineering at work here!
• Our growth is exponential: we build new features and products everyday! We frequently tackle brand new business areas which means there’s always everything to build and always an interesting problem to sink your teeth into!
• We are still small enough that you can get exposure to our entire tech architecture, be close to the business, see the impact you make and build your career trying out different things!
• We are at the cross-road of Software Engineering, Commodity and Finance. This creates an interesting cultural mix: We value the flexibility, collaboration and employee-centric approach that the Tech culture brings but we also value the pragmatism, hard-working and intellectual excellence expectation that often runs in the Finance and Energy worlds.
• You’ll get to work in a truly global work environment: With offices in 6 countries, we come from more than 20 countries and speak more than 15 languages.
• We offer competitive compensation & benefits and are looking for feedback and opportunity to improve them everyday!
