We are looking for a tech lead to join us in building DNB’s future!

Tech Lead

Are you keen on working agile in a cross-functional team to build solutions that will be used by over 2.1 million people in Norway? In this position you will have the opportunity to use the latest cloud technology to build a world class platform for our digital products on AWS.

Currently we use technologies like Kafka, Java, Go and Kotlin on AWS Lambda for backend, and Jenkins for our CI pipeline, Bitbucket and infrastructure build tools like Terraform/ CFT.

Who we are:            

Digital Platforms is a new section within the retail market, “Personmarked”, for DNB. Our mission is to design and build some of the most exciting financial products in the world. We strive to establish a great engineering culture, characterized by freedom and responsibility with well-defined career opportunities for engineers to grow. Whenever possible we run with the devops model- “You build it, you run it”.

What you get:

Challenging tasks that allow you to grow professionally, competitive terms, a strong engineering culture, and good career opportunities. We offer good pension conditions, employee terms on DNBs products, insurance schemes, access to resorts in Norway and abroad, sports, cultural and other activities plus a wide range of discount schemes. 

In addition, knowledge and experiences are our most important assets, so you will have the opportunity to participate in conferences and courses, both to build your own competency and to represent DNB externally. 

We know the value of good work-life balance, so we also have flexible working hours, extra days off and reduced working hours from May to August (summer time!).  

Your mission as our new Tech Lead:

The task is to design and build a world class platform for our digital products on AWS. You will work side by side with the business and technical people within the team defining what we want to achieve, make it a reality, run it and having an eye on what is going on in the innovation space to ensure we always consider the unexplored.

Our Tech Lead’s main responsibility will be to lead a DevOps team responsible for application services. This includes:

  • Making technical decisions
  • Responsible for technical quality, security and compliance
  • Guiding the team, coaching and empowering developers
  • Keeping technical alignment on an optimal level without interfering with team autonomy
  • Initiate and coordinate efforts and initiatives across the section

We think you should apply if: 

  • You are a skilled backend or full stack engineer. You are also great at working in cross-functional and virtual teams with people from other parts of the organization and able to discuss details without losing sight of the big picture
  • You combine skills within backend technologies, people and business, and are able to leverage these to create services and products that excite our users
  • You don’t settle for the established truths, and dare to challenge the “as-is”
  • You are passionate about code quality and clean code principles
  • You are able to inspire people and the organization to join you in transforming the old
  • We consider it a plus if you have experience from Amazon Web Services

We are looking for a Tech Lead that can bring a unique blend of leadership and technical skills and apply these to a context with a team of developers. We are looking for someone that is hands-on the code, and at the same time can steer the team towards a common technical vision.

If you don’t fit all of the above, but still think you are a match for us, we would still love to hear from you!
