Who we are

Legentic offers unique products to help locate and retrieve stolen objects, and combat financial crime. We offer unique data to our customers through various interfaces (web applications, APIs, etc). We are looking to hire a new backend developer for our Sjerlok product.

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 about 2FA. At 11:00 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 2FA. With one hour left, you decide to start preparing your LegenTech presentation where you share your solution to all techies about the awesome package you implemented last week. 


  • Understand and contribute to the product and the technology stack

  • Proactively provide solutions for incoming business problems

  • Work and coordinate projects with different teams such as the Platform and Data teams

  • Be a part of an innovative work environment where every input is welcome

  • 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).


The product you will be working on, Sjerlok, consists of multiple backend components that are mostly written using Django and Django Rest Framework, with Python 3.0-or-up. It is deployed using Docker and Docker Swarm with medium-term plans to migrate it to Kubernetes.


  • At least three years of professional experience

  • Experience in backend web development, Python is an advantage

  • Fluent in Docker


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

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

  • Experience in working with AWS or other cloud vendors

  • Experience with Django/DRF is a big plus

  • Experience with UI frameworks is a plus (VueJS, Angular, React)

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. 



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. 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 at least 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. 


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. We support innovation, communication, and team spirit.
