Software Engineer, API
Roger was founded to make day-to-day financial operations like bill pay, expense management, compliance and bookkeeping as worry-free as possible for business owners, finance teams, accountants and bookkeepers. Roger works as an automated layer on top of a company's accounting software, saving businesses and accountants hours of work every day. We're proud of the product that we've built so far, and our global customer base agree that we're making something complex and tedious simple and maybe even fun.
We are backed by some of the best investors in the financial technology space, and have huge ambitions for our growth in 2019. But we are still a small team and therefore we want you to be part of the journey. Joining Roger will be chance to join a fast-paced company, with a global product. We hire for attitude and not credentials. Please apply regardless of your current position background, or experience.
We are looking for a Software Engineer to run our API efforts, and bring our external API to the next level both on the feature side but also making it easy to integrate to and work with. You'll help lunch and support our self-serve API used by partners partners who offer bill pay through their own platform. We're looking to double down on that business opportunity later this year and need an engineer to take the lead. If you're great at designing APIs and building systems for other engineers, you'll like this role. You know that an API is only as good as its documentation and you are passionate about building excellent reference docs. You'll have ownership over your projects, and help make decisions around design and execution. We're looking for someone with strong competencies within data structures, algorithms and software design.
You'll be familiar with all parts of our stack from end to end, and will drive positive change to Roger's engineering culture, processes and technology.
We see this role as a unique chance to own an important piece of the Roger product, see it grow, and flourish very quickly.
The engineering team is characterized by a high degree of support internally. We help each other out and pitch in when problems arise as well as give each other feedback to grow. Our top priority is to build the world's best financial automation platforms, while keeping our users safe and compliant. Scalability, reliability and robustness are keywords we live by but we also get excited about building out feature MVPs quickly to keep our innovative reputation with customers and partners alive and well at all times.
Roger's backend is built on .NET with C#. We love the simplicity, speed and structure of C#, combined with the built-in security and robustness it offers developers. On the front-end we work in React and React Native, enabling us to build reliable web experiences that can handle high usage volumes.
Additionally, we make extensive use of Lamda (integrations only), AWS, Git, Bugsnag, Heroku and other great tools to keep our development processes running smoothly.
We're a global company with offices in Copenhagen and San Francisco. Our values are heavily influenced by our Scandinavian roots (both founders are from Denmark), and count humility, humor and inclusiveness. We strive to create a culture where anyone feels part of the family, and we place a great amount of value in hiring for attitude rather than resumes. We support flexibility in everyone's lives, and working at Roger can be easily combined with babies, toddlers and teenagers. We have two primary office locations but have a remote culture that we put a lot of effort into as we believe great talent can be found anywhere. As a remote worker you can be sure to feel like you are as much part of the team as those who come to an office every day. About every 6 months we all get together in person. Our last trips took us to Greece and Spain. Everyone on the team shares a passion for creating the best possible product and user experience, and that is something we value in future team members as well.
The Roger Story
Roger's founders started the company after exiting their first startup to Cisco Systems. Having experienced all the frustrations with daily financial operations when starting previous ventures, the first gist of an idea for Roger was born in 2016. Since then, international investors from both Europe and the US have supported the growth of the team and the customer base, and the product is now used and loved by thousands of customers worldwide.
Roger is an equal opportunity employer. We strive to maintain and develop our inclusive work environment and welcome members of all backgrounds and perspectives.
