Backend engineer at XLINQ - ING Neo

XLINQ is a scale up in ING Labs, part of ING Neo, the innovation division of ING. It has been established with the idea to explore new ways to build banking software to help banks to replace legacy systems and to implement new services faster. We have built a platform that digitalize requirements in unambiguous specifications and automates the end-to-end software development process. We cover the full cycle of the software development process: analysis, design, development, integration, testing, implementation, release, operations, and maintenance.

You will be joining the backend team of XLINQ. As it is common in startup culture, there is a completely flat organizational structure. We take end-to-end responsibility of our products and execute in an iterative way towards our goal! Coding, code reviews, as well as tech design, will be the majority part of your daily activities. The team faces various and often unique technical challenges which, according to our engineers' own words, are both stimulating and satisfying once resolved. We strive to provide an open work atmosphere so that our team members are given maximum freedom to explore, propose and employ the best ideas, methodologies, and cutting-edge technology that's best suited for each task.

XLINQ also does its best to make the working environment as enjoyable as possible. Remote working, flexible hours are certainly allowed. Also, there is place for fun activities which are organized both online and offline (once the pandemic is over).

At last but not least, we aspire to be a team that embraces the ideology of workforce diversification. We strongly believe that with best talents from different perspectives, cultures and ideas will lead to the creation of the best software products and services.

Your role as backend engineer

XLINQ aims to develop software for the financial services domain in a model driven way. The team delivers Domain Specific Languages (DSL’s) that are used to model various business domains in financial services. Base on the DSL specifications, software solutions can be generated with consistent quality, lower cost, and shorter time to market.

Knowledge and skills used daily by backend engineers are Microservices Architecture, Relational Database, Reactive Frameworks, Functional Programming, Choreographical Workflow Engines, Events and Messaging, CD/CI pipeline, Docker and Kubenetes, and some operational skills in Cloud Environment.

As a backend and language software engineer, you are responsible for developing and designing DSLs (Domain Specific Languages), the generated software runtime as well as the generator itself. You will participate in the design and development of mission-critical components of XLINQ software products. You will take on great technical challenges in a small team or sometimes independently. This means the backend engineer needs to be capable and willing to carry out assignments without continuous guidance. A backend engineer is also responsible for the continuous improvement of software quality in many aspects such as coding patterns, testing strategy, and run-time system architecture.
