We’re looking for fintech enthusiasts to join Upvest as an intern in the Engineering team to support us in creating the financial infrastructure of tomorrow. We’re building the first European Investment API to enable any financial institution to offer a broad range of investment products in their services and applications. Our view is backed by Europe's largest tech VCs (Earlybird, Notion Capital, Partech, HV Capital, ABN AMRO Ventures) and by renowned fintech entrepreneurs (including Maximilian Tayenthal, founder of N26, and Felix Haas, founder of IDnow) At Upvest, our vision is to make investing as easy as spending money. By enabling any business to offer investment opportunities, our goal is to empower anyone to invest. Today, we count 100+ talented people from 25 different countries. Your mission: Join as a member of our Engineering team, supporting us in building our greenfield Investment API. For the time of your internship, you will have the chance to support the Core Banking (Payments) domain. You'll learn how to build a fintech API-first product, how to truly collaborate in a cross-functional team to reach its full potential, while shaping the strategy and roadmap of Upvest’s current and future products. You'll have the opportunity to: * Be in the driver's seat and actively shape how we build our Investment API while learning from fintech experts * Work cross-functionally in an Agile manner with other Upvest teams (Product, Growth, Banking, and Legal), as well as external stakeholders (clients and vendors) * Experience the European fintech engineering landscape first-hand and dive deep into engineering research with a user-centric, data-driven approach * Join a fast-paced and dynamic engineering-first startup environment * Actively shape our product success by contributing to our mission to help millions of people to take their wealth into their own hands About you: * You can commit to a 4- to a 6-month full-time internship * First programming experience (preferably familiarity with Go) * You're excited about fintech and are thrilled to build the financial infrastructure of tomorrow * You're hungry to learn and eager to grow quickly * You are a true team player and feel energised in diverse teams * You love to be challenged, take ownership of your work, and iterate quickly and early * You are currently studying or just graduated with a degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Economics, Business Administration/Finance or any other relevant field of study * Ideally, you have previous work experience from related, fast-paced work environments * You’re fluent in English, both written and spoken What we offer: * We're working on solving a hard problem: fixing the European financial securities infrastructure, empowering people to invest with ease. You have the opportunity to contribute to this powerful change. * We invest in you. Together we create a personalised development path and give you plenty of opportunities to grow in your role. * We take hiring seriously and keep the bar high when interviewing. We hire talents who are passionate about their craft and excited to help achieve our shared mission. * We are a hybrid employer and committed to flexibility as we understand you don't have to be in the office at all times to do your best work. * We live a culture of empowerment and trust (that we hire the best people and get out of their way) as well as openness (there's a greater advantage in sharing information than keeping it to ourselves). * Last but not least, we take time to have fun as a team with regular team dinners, group events, or occasional celebrations (as the situation allows). * Opportunity to extend your internship towards a working student or permanent role, depending on the outcome of the internship.
