About Rivero

Rivero is a successful Fintech scale-up founded in early 2019 on a mission to enable banks and financial institutions to automate complex processes most simply and efficiently. In this way, banks can focus on delighting their customers with streamlined digital interfaces. We fall into both the #FinTech and the #RegTech domain.

We have steadily grown our customer base and offer a unique opportunity to join us for the exciting growth phase ahead. We closed our Series A funding round at the beginning of the year.

You join the Kajo product team that builds and runs the Kajo scheme compliance solution. As a senior backend engineer, you help foster a great product and use your expertise and experience to help other engineers grow and learn.

What is it like to work at Rivero?

We are ambitious and excited about our mission.

We provide a lot of freedom and room to grow, value ownership, and embrace daily challenges together with a positive attitude.

We think self-awareness is essential and strive for confident humility.

We actively engage with our customers and listen to them to understand and address their needs and pain points.

We are radically transparent in communication and, at the same time, open-minded to questions, informed comments and grounded disagreements.

We believe it is OK to make mistakes but unacceptable not to identify, analyse, and learn from them.
