Backend Developer

In Vipps we’re on a mission to make life easier for people and businesses through smart payments and identification solutions

First we simplified peer-to-peer payments and replaced account numbers with phone numbers. In six months, we reached a million downloads. Today more half of Norway’s population uses Vipps. That said, we are far from finished!

We mostly write services in Go which run on containers in Azure. We also do some coding in Java and Python with a bit of bash scripting thrown in for fun. We use both SQL Server and Cosmos DB. We strive to use the best tool for the job without getting religious about our technical choices.

Our team in Oslo is looking for a backend developer to strengthen our team. Are you the one?

You will design, build, deploy and maintain the core of Vipps products, services and APIs. You will own your features in production, measure their impact and handle any related issues. You will communicate with stakeholders to deliver high quality solutions and take an active part in improving our current tooling, standards and processes.

Backend Developer


You are a passionate and pragmatic about your work. You want to write great code and you want to ship. There's a balance to maintain there and you do your best to find the right balance.

You enjoy working on a team. You write code with your teammates in mind. You know you can learn a lot from everyone around you.

You believe in what you're doing here and you take ownership of what you work on. When issues come up, you dive right in and get us back on track. When we celebrate successes, you are humble about your achievements.

Our team live by the following ideals - are you a match?

  • Quality: We prefer to keep things simple with good attention to detail.
  • Shipping: We want to constantly be delivering code.
  • Collaboration: Our best work is done as a team. We succeed (and fail) together.
  • Experimentation: We believe in the merits of hypothesis-driven experimentation, continuous deployment and validated learning.
  • Open Source: We want to give back to the community that has given so much to us.

We are soon moving into our brand new office in Bjørvika, Oslo. Not to mention, we have top pension and insurance. We work hard, but enjoy our vacation too. So how about 6 weeks of vacation? Sound good? Get in touch! Applying is just as easy as paying with Vipps; push the button, answer a few questions and "vipps"- you have applied.

Historien om Vipps er egentlig som et lite eventyr. I løpet av seks måneder ble vi lastet ned én million ganger, og på tre år har vi blitt nær sagt allemannseie i Norge. Med 3 millioner brukere har Vipps blitt en naturlig del av nordmenns betalingshverdag. Vi har til og med blitt et verb, det er ganske moro egentlig.

Vi startet med vennebetaling og har siden den gang lansert betalingsløsninger for person til bedrift, netthandel, faktura og betaling i butikk. Om vi skal gi oss med det? Å nei du, på ingen måte.

Nylig fusjonerte vi med verdensledende aktører innenfor betaling- og identifiseringsteknologi, BankAxept og BankID og utvikler nå tjenester for norske og internasjonale brukere.

Vi er i dag ca. 150 Vippsere som stiller til start; utviklere, produkthoder, selgere, markedsførere og økonomifolk. Sammen skal vi sette en ny standard for betaling og ID-tjenester, med merkevarene Vipps, BankAxept og BankID, i Norge og i andre markeder.
