Backend Developer

Push the boundaries of engineering by building a clean, scalable and secure platform that millions of people use.

Our mission

We want to improve daily life for millions of people (ourselves included,) by making their finances easier to manage so that everybody can be good with money. Whether we like it or not, money plays a huge part in all our lives. Bud is rethinking how the whole industry works, building products that make the experience better for everyone.

How we're doing it

We’re building apps and infrastructure that help people take control of their personal data and use it to make their lives easier. We’ve started with open banking - building a platform that connects people’s fragmented finances in smart ways so that they don’t have to think too much about all the admin that comes with managing finances. We’re killing off the never-ending form filling, making smart recommendations about the kind of financial products that might work for you and generally making finance into something that supports your life.

Sounds great. What is the job?

You will be joining one of our autonomous feature teams as a Backend Developer. You know the tools that get the job done in the best possible way, and satisfy the needs of the users while keeping our business booming.

You and your self-organising team will decide your way of working together, but you will also need to take accountability for your actions and constantly keep security in mind. It’s your ship, you need to know how to guide it through dangerous waters.

We work hard to deliver exceptional products, but we also know when it’s time to relax. For example, there is a weekly fika (that’s the Swedish coffee break) where work talk is not allowed. The aim is just to get to know each other a bit better, improve the teamwork and keep communication open. We collaborate across competencies and learn from each other. Pair programming or code reviews done in pairs? The structure is up to you and the team.

Show me the tools

We use PHP 7.2, Symfony 4.1 and Nginx. We’re also using Typescript, Node js, and some python. We are big believers in BDD and TDD. If we feel that a tool is not the right one for us, we can always consider switching to something else. Nobody likes legacy. When we say greenfield, we mean it.

What excites us?

We love independent people who lead by example. We also love our R&D days: two days dedicated to your own experimental projects and learning, happening every 6 weeks. Open banking? That’s very much our cup of tea and a massive game changer in the world of financial products.

You don't really sound like an average FinTech...

That’s because we’re not. We’re a diverse group of people with backgrounds ranging from data science to music production, in fact more than 80% of our team come from outside the world of finance. We’re here to help people to feel more in control of their lives - so it’s far more important that you’re interested in people than that you’re interested in finance.



Standard holidays 25 days + all bank holidays + office closed between Christmas & New Year's Eve


The salary package includes a contributory pension to match up to 5% of the salary, and Bud will also pay for a Gym membership for the local gym.


You’ll be given a budget for a brand new MacBook (or similar), and/or computer accessories so you’ll have the best tools for the job.

Hours & flexibility

Standard hours are 9:30 am to 6 pm, however as part of our high-performance team, you'll benefit from the flexibility to manage your own day to optimise the way you work to be at your best.


We’re big on keeping Bud a social team, so Christmas and Summer parties can be a big deal. We’ll also organise sports events, music gigs and after-work meet-ups.


Bud’s new office is a newly renovated space, specifically designed to our needs. Cool interior, breakout spaces, professional meeting rooms, brand new kitchen and a shower room for our part-time athletes.
