As Tech Lead you will guide the team as leader and support by developing software in Go that extracts financial data from APIs and from multiple online sources. You make sure the team subsequently transforms such data into structured insight stored and maintained in our database and served to customers through our web app and API. Your role is tightly connected to the work of our Data & Insight team consisting of researchers with financial and local domain knowledge that create curated company- and industry analyses on the basis of your code.
Besides excellent software engineering skills, you also show aptitude in designing and implementing cloud infrastructure solutions to optimally scale our operations.
You will join a lean dev team of 4 highly experienced professionals (backend, frontend, product/design). We are substantially scaling the team so there’s plenty of room to have impact. In fact, as a founding member of our newly formed ‘data’ team you will have the opportunity to take a leading role in our expansion.
At Gain.pro we offer our clients a state-of-the-art company intelligence platform. Our customers include leading private equity investors (e.g. CVC), M&A-advisors (e.g. Lazard) and consultants (e.g. McKinsey). We differentiate by offering the highest quality data in a user-friendly interface. Founded in 2018, we are a fast-growing scale-up (nearly tripled sales in 2020) with a remote-first team across Europe.
