Teamlead Engineering (m/f/d)

  • Anywhere


We are a motivated team of over 70 people, 15 nationalities and 85 great personalities. We build the PAYBACK Backend Systems for various countries and millions of users. We are in the middle of our mission to move away from a big monolith to a modular microservices based architecture. We know that agile processes in combination with continuous delivery is key when it comes to bring new features faster to our markets.

We all sit (virtually and in-person), work, laugh and cry together – sometimes we are emotional and sometimes we are relaxed, but we are always engaged! And – of course – we love Star Wars!
