Data Engineer

What we do and why we're looking for you

Despite the name, we’re not a bank. We’re building productivity tools for small businesses and accountants. Our founders claim we’re one of the fastest growing startups in Europe and looking at the stats we believe them.

We're proud of the way we work and of our values – we care deeply about quality and sane development practices. We also strive for simplicity and pragmatism.

Architecture & Stack

Our systems are mostly done using Ruby on Rails. We use Python for machine learning. We have a large web app, a few smaller ones, a few mobile apps (Android and iOS), a growing fleet of services (in the sense of Service-Oriented Architecture) talking via RabbitMQ

Team, Challenges & You

The development team is mostly in Bulgaria. Because we’re a remote company we have people in Sofia, Plovdiv, Burgas, Varna, Ruse. Everyone can choose where to work from. However, if you need to socialize in a face-to-face manner - we have a nice, spacious office in the centre of Sofia (near National Palace of Culture).

We have reasonable processes, organised Kanban boards, stand-ups that don’t last more than 10 minutes and product owners writing detailed (sometimes a bit too detailed) specifications. We value highly the quality of the code and good practices. We’ve suffered enough without them. Our management is well aware of that. We’ve even had the need to explain that we don’t need so much time for paying back technical debt. Some of us even talk about those things (code reviews, automated testing, refactoring).

What we'll expect if you join our team

  • Write production-quality ETL code with an eye towards performance and maintainability;
  • Collaborating with colleagues to ensure that the business has all the data they need in a user friendly structure;
  • Ensuring that the BI team, domain analysts and data scientists have the modelled data they need to support the business - working with BI team and domain analysts to understand their data needs, and ensuring our data evolves to support them;
  • Coaching analysts software engineering best practices - providing training to BI analysts and domain analysts on best practices in dbt, git, and data modelling, with a particular focus on driving an automation mentality;
  • Write clean, maintainable and efficient code;
  • Follow best practices (test-driven development, continuous integration, SCRUM, refactoring and code standards);
  • Drive continuous adoption and integration of relevant new technologies into design.

What do we seek

Our ideal candidate is someone who shares our love of quality and doing things the right way. Writing tests, structuring the abstractions cleanly and polishing the code until it shines should be their desire. We’re looking for good and experienced developers, who are not afraid to learn new things and work on hard problems. If this sounds interesting and you think we might “click”, get in touch with us.

What we are looking for

  • Demonstrable experience of working within a similar role in a fast-paced, high-growth technology (ideally SaaS) business
  • A good understanding of clean code architecture.
  • An ability to conceptualise, build and develop tools that will streamline data discovery across Receipt Bank and increase knowledge sharing throughout the business
  • Experience with big data frameworks, particularly Spark, would be an additional bonus

We'll consider as advantage if you possess

  • Strong system skills - excellent understanding of Python and databases is a must, along with strong SQL skills


We offer our Bulgaria-based team an employer-paid additional medical insurance, life and risk insurance, and a corporate discount for a MultiSpot Card. The team gets together for monthly team drinks and an off-site somewhere beautiful twice a year. Between countless group outings to talks, outdoor events, movies and more, you'll be sure to find your niche.
