Senior Backend Developer (m/f) for a new Cyber Security venture at FinLeap

Berlin, Germany


Building a good engineering product is in our opinion the most exciting thing in the world. Applying concepts which originated more than two thousand years ago in logic and formalized by lambda calculus (yes, we know the curry-howard isomorphism), combining theoretical concepts with cutting edge technology and healthy pragmatism is what drives our engineering. Does the thought of working in such an environment interest you? Do you already have experience working within the cyber security domain or an interest to do so? Look no further for your next career step — take the leap and join our team as we reshape the industry.
