About Rivero

Rivero is a startup on a mission to enable banks and financial institutions to automate complex processes in the simplest and most efficient way. In this way, banks can focus their attention on delighting their customers with streamlined digital interfaces. If you want to put a label on it, we probably fall into both the #FinTech and the #RegTech domain.


What is it like to work at Rivero

We work in product-based, small and interdisciplinary teams. We are ambitious and excited about our mission. We know that many challenges await us, but we are ready to face them because only then can we learn and grow.

We are wary about being overconfident and our blind spots. We get engaged with our customers on an emotional level. We listen to them with empathy and intelligence to truly understand and address their problems and their viewpoints.

We are radically transparent in communication with each other 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, analyze, and learn from them.

The profile we are looking for

You'll be a good match for us if you're excited to work in a team where the Backend and DevOps Engineering domains are a shared responsibility. Thus, we'd like you to be comfortable with Backend and be interested in learning Infrastructure concepts.

Below you can see our tech stack, i.e. the list of tools that you will mostly be involved with in your day-to-day work. We expect you to have experience with these or similar technologies that address the same problems:

  • Scala
  • ZIO, Typelevel Stack (Cats, Shapeless, http4s, fs2, etc)
  • PostgreSQL

As a multidisciplinary team we value experience that you bring in other parts of the tech stack and domains. Other technologies we use within Rivero:

  • Frontend - Typescript, Vue.js, Web Components, LitElement, Cypress
  • Backend - Java, Kotlin, Go, Rust, Haskell
  • Infrastructure - Nix, Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, GitLab CI, Elastic Stack, Prometheus, Traefik, Vault, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, NATS

We are looking for someone who has experience with creating and delivering high quality cloud / web applications. As a backend engineer you will take an active part in designing and engineering how our products work. Therefore we need you to be able to take responsibility, be communicative and easy going. At Rivero we believe that while progress comes from individual effort, we can only succeed as a team.


The little things that matter

We strive to keep our employees happy by creating a pleasant working environment and below are a few things that we are currently doing for our team. But, like everything else, our perk list is also dynamic and changes and evolves over time as we grow.

  • On-site or fully remote - We think a great team is not dependent on locations or borders; if you prefer working in our Zurich office, that’s great; if you prefer to work fully remote from any country in Europe that’s equally great. Our team spirit, our infrastructure and how we work allow you to work from where you feel at home.
  • Ability to learn and grow - We think about how we can enable our team to become better every day. This is the main mission of the Rivero Academy. Our academy sessions cover a wide range of topics from technical to fun topics.
  • Device and tools neutrality - Whether you are a Mac, Linux, or Windows user, you can work with whatever devices and tools that make you happier and ultimately more productive.
  • Friday happy hours (on-site or remote) - After a week of hard work, we enjoy getting together to listen to a short talk on an interesting new topic (can be anything from tech to art), and to have a drink and hang out.


Then, simply send us a few lines about yourself, why you would like to join Rivero, and your CV and/or portfolio.

We will only consider applicants from Europe; please indicate if you apply for a fully remote or an on-site position.
