Publication: 2021-04-14

We are looking for our next team member, a backend & infrastructure engineer, to help us further develop our product and ourselves.

Are you interested? Click on the button, send us your CV, and come by our office at Kungsgatan 11 in central Gothenburg, Sweden.


We are Nortical!

Nortical improves battery efficiency. We do this by analyzing live battery data in order to compile battery insights that we use to give advice on how to utilize them better in the future.

We are smack in the middle of the creation of a completely new value chain. As the world is electrifying, batteries are becoming the centerpiece of both existing and new business models and products. You will work in the very center of this change together with a diverse team of like-minded individuals, people truly taking an active role in shaping the future of electrification and how batteries will be used.

As we are growing, the tech team needs more hands on deck for the development and maintenance of backend services and cloud infrastructure.

What You´ll Do

You will be developing and maintaining Norticals backend services and cloud infrastructure.

This is a role with a wide task distribution all over the stack, but since we build an API-centric product there is no particular need for frontend/web development experience. However, a full-stack developer has a good chance of filling the role requirements.

The tech team is small but shoulders a lot of responsibility, working autonomously with a great degree of freedom. This puts expectations on the applicant to be self-propelled, curious, documentation-driven, and obsessed with automation. Being an early startup, we often end up doing stuff we didn't expect, so an agile mindset is needed.

Key Qualifications

We place great value in intelligence, team sense, and self-drive. But skills are important too. Here follows the skill set that we believe is key for accomplishing your tasks.

  • Modern back-end service engineering, e.g.

    • Containerisation

    • CI/CD

    • Networking

    • Serverless computing

    • Variety of database solutions

    • API design

    • Microservices

  • Cloud ops experience (ideally GCP)

  • Experience designing and running ML/data pipelines in production

  • Comfortable with Typescript

  • Enjoy functional programming

  • Automation addict

  • Pragmatic code quality inquisitor

  • Terminal native

  • English - full professional level

Bonus Skills

  • Weirdly excited about static typing

  • Elixir/Erlang

  • C/Rust embedded development

  • Swedish speaker

Diversity makes a difference

You are welcome to Nortical as the person that you are, no matter where you come from, what you look like, or what your favorite battery chemistry is. The more minds and voices we have, the stronger our business will be, the more we will thrive and develop. It´s in our diversity that we find the secret sauce for our revolutionizing products and creating a better tomorrow.
