Staff Engineer

Scroll to content

At Tink, we’re creating the foundations that a new world of finance will be built on. By constantly challenging ourselves to go further and do better, we’re developing the ground-breaking services that businesses will use, to revolutionize the way millions of people manage their money. The world of financial services is changing fast, and we will continue to be at the forefront of it.

The Staff Engineer role

As a Staff Engineer at Tink, you will be part of making sure Tink and the people here can develop themself and the industry. We see that you will contribute to the vision of the overall technical direction of our current and future products. By defining standards and new ways of how product features and services are built throughout all of Tink, you will have a big impact on our daily work and our journey ahead. 

By being an expert within your domain (Backend, Frontend, SRE, Data Engineer, or Data Scientist) you will contribute by making critical product architecture and implementation decisions to a variety of teams, all over Tink. 

You will work on our most complex technical challenges. Either by designing new solutions or by upping the game in some of our existing systems. 

Some days you will be deep in writing code, other days you will lead the architectural design work of new components. Some days you will work by yourself, but more often in close collaboration with other engineers or product managers.

Some initiatives our Staff Engineers work with

  • Leading the implementation of our new developer platform with the ambition of making shipping code simpler.
  • Designing and implementing our data processing infrastructure handling many billions of data points each month.
  • With other senior engineers, lead the work on identifying bottlenecks, removing unnecessary dependencies and create clearer boundaries between components for the Tink architecture.

Your future team

As we are looking for Staff Engineers in all areas, at Tink it’s hard to talk about a specific team. We believe that it’s easier to have a chat about this in a first meeting and hear what you would like to do. We work in small teams that have full ownership of our services from idea, design and implementation to operations and maintenance. This brings responsibility, creativity and motivation as you will have a big part in developing both existing and future products. It gets you closer to the end product and makes you proud of what you have accomplished with your impact.


We use technologies such as Java, Go, Python, MySQL, Cassandra, Memcached, Kafka, Elasticsearch, gRPC, Docker and Bazel, and all our microservices run on Kubernetes in AWS.

Life at Tink

In an environment that’s filled with skilled and creative colleagues, and a culture that encourages people to make their ideas happen, you can have an impact like nowhere else. We all help each other to build new skills and best practices through the diversity of our backgrounds and opinions – while having a lot of fun in the process. Do you want to be part of our story and join one of the leading fintechs in Europe?

We're looking forward to your application!
