vestr is a Zurich- and Hanover-based startup founded by three finance industry veterans. We build specialized software solutions and offer consulting services to the banking and insurance industry and are currently servicing two well-known Swiss banks. We speak German, Swiss German (various dialects), and English.
Our current mission is to automate the entire value chain for Actively Managed Certificates (“AMC”s) -- a financial product family that is very similar in character to investment funds. vestr hereby digitizes product creation, life-cycle management, trade execution and reporting.
Our core product is an event-driven, service-oriented Node.js framework written in TypeScript. We use KDB+ to perform the most complex, time-correlated queries our customers can think of.
Our clients can choose between a managed service (entirely hosted in Switzerland) and an on-premises solution.
To work on our core product, we seek to expand our team with a talented full stack developer.
- Design and build our React-based frontend to enable our clients to manage their AMC portfolio – from product creation to rebalancing, to customized reporting. Select best suited frameworks (UI/CSS, data connection, state management).
- Develop our CQRS-driven, service-oriented backend. Design decoupled, fail-safe workflows to carry out corporate actions and trade executions.
- Take responsibility for the entire product lifecycle, including DevOps
- Be one of two core developers, make key architecture choices
- Work closely together with business development and our clients
- Build up our development team in Hanover, Hamburg, or Berlin; home office days possible
- Part-time work possible (80-100%)
- You can do awesome things with React. You can do advanced stuff with Meteor, GraphQL and MobX as well.
- Having a good understanding of CSS in JS, CQRS, Event Sourcing, Messaging, CI/CD workflows, Micro-Services and Containerization would be desirable.
- It's a big plus if you have experience with RabbitMQ, MongoDB and Docker.
- You take responsibility not only for your own work, but for the entire product
- You craft clean, concise, and well-tested code and appreciate arguing about design and conventions with the CTO

- You are comfortable with both being on your own and collaborating in a distributed team.
- Having a Master's Degree in Computer Sciences, Mathematics or Physics is a plus.
