Tech Lead (Full Stack JavaScript) (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!

Would you like to do something meaningful with your JavaScript development skills? Drive change and inspire fellow developers? Help us build software that solves real fraud cases! Our goal is to build the most customer centric fraud prevention products, by minimizing our customers’ fraud. 

Online fraud is organized crime, and on the rise. Every month we have to process over 10 million online transactions. So think about the scale of our software. Our product’s interface has to enable fraud managers to make decisions in real-time, based on our trained machine learning models. The challenge is to build an interface that makes our customers' fraud managers quickly understand why we think a transaction is fraudulent or not and how it is connected to other transactions to quickly react on it.

Our product teams are cross-functional and following agile methods like Kanban and Scrum. You will work as a Tech Lead (Full Stack JavaScript) in the Frontend team. As such you will build our product's user interface with the most current tech stack (NodeJS and Angular with a focus on the latter). You will also be responsible for leading the team, taking them to “performing” stage while constantly exchanging with them to solve upcoming challenges and share best practices and learnings. The ideal candidate is a highly motivated self starter with a passion for fraud prevention and current or upcoming technologies (like Redux/ngrx, Docker, webpack, GraphQL, Elasticsearch, Kafka, MongoDB, Kubernetes), fluent in CSS and JavaScript and at least one MV* framework for building Single Page Applications (SPA). Developing your team mates and enabling them to be at their best brings you joy. As a Tech Lead you are part of the Architecture Board, representing the interests of your team within the organisation and at the same time aligning the technical decisions in your team to the overall architecture.
