API Developer

Who we are

Legentic offers unique products to help locate and retrieve stolen objects. To help combat financial crime. We offer unique data to our customers through various interfaces (web applications, APIs, etc). We are looking to hire an API developer for our Product department.

A day at Legentic

It’s Monday, you decided to work in our office. You start your day with a coffee with your colleagues. You sit at your desk, turn on your company-provided laptop, and start working on your task to work on our Search API. At 10:40 AM, you show up at the daily standup in which you share an update and you inform your colleagues that you don’t have any impediments. Since the sprint ends on Thursday and one of your teammates is stuck, you decide to help him first till lunchtime. Once the courier has delivered lunch, you have lunch with a colleague and play a table tennis game. After lunch, you continue and finish your work on the new Search API. With one hour left, you decide to start preparing your LegenTech presentation where you share your solution to all techies about the new automated documentation in modern API frameworks.

Tasks:

  • Collaborate with different development teams

  • Translate our product vision to APIs that enable that strategy

  • Design and develop robust APIs (secure, functional, documented)

  • Contribute to our overall API strategy

  • Communicate API designs to internal (technical) stakeholders

  • Work on projects and collaborate between Platform and Data teams

  • Contribute to different projects across the company

  • Contribute to our Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) to solve 100 financial crimes a day by 2024

  • Be a part of our 3Cs culture (Collaborating, Courageous, Caring)

Technologies we use frequently in our company are PostgreSQL, Redis, Elasticsearch, Docker, Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, and AWS. (Although initially you are not expected to know all of these, you’ll learn about them as you work at Legentic).

Requirements

As our API developer, you’ll be working with both the product and the platform departments. You’ll be responsible for developing robust APIs that are customer focused. Our product and platform internals include components that are mostly using Django and Django Rest Framework, with Python 3, Ruby on Rails, and Java. Our applications are deployed using Docker and Docker Swarm with short-term plans to migrate them to Kubernetes (EKS).

Must-have:

  • Experience documenting APIs and ensuring long-term compatibility

  • Experience with Python API frameworks (preferably FastAPI)

  • Proficiency in Python

  • Preferably three years of professional experience

  • Experience in API design

Optional:

  • It would be great if you could tick off these boxes as well:

  • Knowledge of a second programming language

  • BSc or MSc in computer science, data science, engineering, or similar discipline

  • Experience in working with AWS or other cloud vendors

Our team

As a member of our team, you will have an interesting and challenging job while learning new skills and growing as an IT specialist in a young and collaborative company culture. You will have colleagues all across Europe and the US.

Benefits

Location/Mobility

Our techies are located in Helsinki, Finland; Oslo, Norway, and Cluj, Romania. This time we would prefer that the developer is based in Cluj, Romania, or Oslo, Norway. A good cultural fit is the most important attribute of this role.

Because we are all across Europe, we are a remote-first company but we do prefer that people join the local office approximately two days a week.

Company provided computer

We provide you with your preferred work computer. Whether it’s a MacBook or a Lenovo, we got what you need to make your job smoother.

Self-learning and mentoring

Legentic provides a yearly budget for self-learning that the employees can use to invest in picking up new skills or honing existing ones.

You’ll also benefit from a mentor for the first couple of months in the company. Your mentor will help you learn all the aspects of the technology stack but also be your guide while integrating into the company. You’ll also have your own yearly budget for self-learning.

Team

Work with some of the brightest minds in the industry. Our team members are courageous, collaborative, and curious. You will have the chance to learn from the best and share your knowledge with them.
