Company Description

Solactive AG is a FinTech company operating globally and growing at a fast pace. Since 2007, we develop tailor-made and multi-asset class index solutions for ETFs and other index-linked investment products for the leading global investment banks and asset managers as our clients. Our software development and core technology team, responsible for the infrastructure, development, operation and maintenance of our index calculation and publication engine, is based in Berlin and is now hiring!

Job Overview

Do you like to work with your team to challenge the status quo and implement solutions which will be part of a solid and impactful legacy? Do you get satisfaction by solving complex problems such as highly scalable environments and never-down services? You don’t only want to stream your next TikTok video but millions of financial data all over the world? JSON is not the next hipster nickname for you and SLAs are part of your DNA?
Then it is time to go the next step in B2B API design and join our team!

Your Tasks

  • Planning and implementing challenging software development projects in a service-oriented architecture
  • Developing high performance APIs to clients and data providers
  • Integrate domain specific solutions into our index platform
  • Very close cooperation with our product owners and business teams
  • Proactively implementing new services and improve existing ones
  • Support our operation teams helping our customers finding the proper solutions for their needs

Your Profile

  • You see the whole picture: your 8+ years of experience (with at least 5 of in-depth Java projects and at least 2 years in API related projects) make you extremely confident in handling APIs in a commercial environment
  • You are API-first: Platform design, API first and messaging technologies (JSON, protobuf, RabbitMQ, Kafka) are the dimensions you think in.
  • You care about performance: you have a solid knowledge of high throughput and low latency environments for APIs.
  • You care about making an impact: your code is your legacy and you want that to be a key part of the business. You are familiar in discussing and exchanging opinions to make the code a long-lasting experience rather than a quick-burner. 
  • You tackle it, now: strong analytical skills, effective problem solving mentality, result orientation and excellent team spirit bring you on the path of success together with Solactive. 

Our Offer

  • Structured feedback and career cycles to support your further development
  • An attractive salary package with 30 days of annual leave (plus 24th & 31st Dec)
  • Free choice of your gears to work comfortably and effectively
  • The dynamic environment of a start-up culture – with the stability of an established company
