Who we are
We’re BUX, a tech company that is rocking the world of finance. By taking down all barriers and disrupting the trading experience, we're helping new generations of first-time investors to discover the financial markets. We launched our first app back in 2014 and have welcomed over 1.7 million users across Europe since then. We’re now building a full fledged stockbroker, in order to support multiple investment apps. In parallel we’re working on a second app. Our first app is mainly targeting short term traders, whereas the new app will offer long term investing. Our end goal is to offer a family of apps, catering to everyone who wants to do more with his or her money.
About the team
Engineering is the heart of our business and we have a really experienced tech team. Between the CTO and our tech leads, there are several decades of development experience. This is one of the smartest teams you'll have the chance to work in. It will help you push yourself to the next level.
Why will you enjoy working for BUX?
We are building our own stock broker. You will play a key part in this by bringing your own vision, helping define its architecture, owning one of its core components, and helping grow the team.
You'll design, build, and maintain systems that are meant to scale. We went from 1000 to 1.7 million users with barely any hiccups. (Learn how we're doing it.)
We want our trading apps accessible 24/7. We have very small maintenance windows, so from a DevOps perspective you'll have the opportunity to think, plan, and execute the best ways to deploy our services.
Lastly, the business domain is interesting. You will learn how the financial system works on the inside.
