Job description

Thus, Rebellion was born. Laser-focused on creating a product that offers Millennials and Gen Zs a simple and transparent way of managing their personal finances.

We are the 1st Spanish neobank offering a personal ES IBAN alongside a physical card, Apple Pay, Google Pay, P2P payments, and access to +14 years, all using a simple app - currently used by more than 100.000 users.

We are looking for a Tech Lead to join us on our next step - an integration project from scratch with one of the biggest cloud baking platforms.

As a Tech Lead, you will work together with our Spanish and Lithuanian team of Engineers, Product, Compliance, and Business, to implement our technological innovations for neobanking real-world problems and help deliver complex business demand.

Also, you will ensure robustness, performance and failure characteristics of the system and team; create roadmaps and timelines for product development. Inspire, lead, shape and grow a software engineering team.
