Senior Software Developer
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 (20 people) and therefore we want you to be part of the journey.
Joining Roger will be a 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 Senior Software Engineer to run the development team in Europe, primarily based out of the Copenhagen office. As a team-lead of currently 4 developers you will work closely with our CTO in San Francisco to set the pace and direction for planning sprints according to the product roadmap. We're looking for an experienced developer who likes to lead and take responsibility and motivate fellow team members to keep a high bar for quality, speed and security. You should be comfortable making decisions on the fly, as well as take the leading role in making sure the dev team is meeting deadlines and commitments.
The role is very much an engineering role, and you'll spend 85-90% of your time programming. You'll play a large role in developing new features and leading by example. Your educational background is less important as your previous professional experience, your drive, and your personality.
We don't expect you to have direct management responsibilities unless you are excited about that prospect.
Being based in Copenhagen is preferred but we will also look at candidates from other places in Europe who are willing to spend at least a week per month in Copenhagen.
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.
