Do you want to join us on the journey of disrupting the spend management business? Do you like to work in a fast-paced environment with a passionate and supportive team? Yokoy is growing!

After closing our $80M Series B funding round with the world’s renowned tech fund Sequoia Capital this spring, we are thriving in a fast-paced hypergrowth environment. We are now looking for a new colleague to become our Backend Engineer in Zurich! 🚀

As a Customer Backend Engineer, you will work on the integration of new clients and third party systems (i.e. ERP systems, travel providers, credit card feeds, etc) into Yokoy. In addition, you will contribute to the tool set that enables implementation managers to independently configure and onboard new clients. Yokoy is based on the newest technology available on the market, which makes your work extremely exciting. This engineer role is key for us as Yokoy is growing fast on a global scale, which requires a continuous extension of our integrations offering and a successful scaling of the client onboarding process.

What you'll do:

    • You will work on new integrations within the international customer engineering team and in close collaboration with the implementation managers
    • You write clean and testable code and perform reviews for colleagues
    • You support the advancement of the technology and the process landscape within customer engineering to prepare for successful scaling

What you'll need:

    • A Bachelor's or Master's degree (University/University of Applied Sciences) in an engineering discipline (Computer Science, Math or Physics)
    • You have at least 3 years of professional programming experience (TypeScript/JavaScript as preferred language)
    • You have experience with REST/SOAP/FTP
    • You have experience of relevant third party systems (ERP, travel providers, credit cards, and similar)
    • You ideally have a good understanding of software architecture
    • You enjoy working independently
    • You speak English fluently, other languages are a plus

What you'll get:

    • We love to see people thrive! You'll have the resources to own and be able to shape things from day one
    • Work closely with the founders and the leadership team
    • We’re fast - quickly measure and learn the impact of your work
    • Grow - we’re growing fast, and you’re the expert. Help us shape our growth!
    • Flexibility - everyone has their own highly productive times - you have found your sweet spot? Perfect, we look at the output and not at what time it was produced
    • Remote - we enjoy in-person sessions, but we have also learned (thank you Covid) how to be efficient with remote working
    • Competitive scale-up package
We are keen to get to know you. Apply with your CV and/or LinkedIn profile and a few words on why you would like to join Yokoy. We look forward to your application! 

What’s going to happen next: we aim to get back to you regarding your application within the next 5 business days. Our interview process tends to take around 4 weeks to complete. If you need more flexibility or are on a tighter schedule, don’t be afraid to let us know.
