Scala Developer FRIDA One (f/m/d)

Festanstellung, Vollzeit · Hamburg

Über uns
RISK IDENT is a young and fast-growing software development company based in Hamburg, Germany. Founded in 2012, our team became one of the market leaders within fraud prevention in the German speaking market in a very short period of time. Today, RISK IDENT has a strong customer base, the majority of our customers coming from e-commerce, telecommunications and financial services. We secure more than 50 billion euros of annual turnover against fraud for our customers. We are an established start-up with an innovative SaaS business model. We have an excellent market position and are financially backed. Today, our team consists of around 70 people at our HQ in Hamburg, with every single one of them loving what they do. We are always on the lookout for new challenges and for smart people to accompany us along the way!
Online fraud is organised crime, and on the rise. Every month we have to process over 10 million online transactions. Become the Sherlock Holmes of the web and help us to build software that solves real fraud cases! In this never-ending race, we are fighting the bad guys with technology!

We are looking for another Scala Developer to join our product development team FRIDA One. FRIDA enables our customers’ fraud managers to decide whether a transaction is fraudulent or not, and how it is connected to other transactions so one can quickly react on it to prevent payment defaults.

FRIDA One is the backbone of our company serving more than 20 customers in production. We use a modern tech stack, e.g. Scala, Play Framework, Postgres, PostGIS, ZIO, and Scalaz. We use functional programming constructs and optimise our product for performance and scalability. Following agile methods, the team works in Kanban and uses artefacts from Scrum such as Dailies, Backlog Groomings and Retrospectives. The team collaborates on an eye to eye level, e.g. in pair programming sessions and code reviews. That is why we are looking for someone who wants to become an active, communicative and fun team member of FRIDA One. Someone who wants to get involved in actively shaping the future development of the product. The team works independently and owns their product. That means being responsible for the whole software lifecycle and deciding on your own how to implement requirements. 

Help us to take FRIDA One to the next level to bring us one step further towards our vision of creating a world where online fraud no longer exists!
