Are you passionate about building testable, performant, and maintainable backend services with PHP and Laravel? Are you dedicated to interpret data and analyze results using statistical techniques supporting our business decision? Then we might have the right job for you.
Ageras Group is an ambitious, young and fast-paced group of fintech companies with a shared mission to enable success for micro-businesses. We are on an amazing growth journey, and are currently expanding our business with a new unit – a financing company.
We’ve recently started Ageras Finance, where we build financial products such as loans and invoice financing into our existing products. We’re building a complete loan platform in-house, including credit scoring, risk modelling, application flows, KYC etc.
We’re looking for a new colleague to our team who can be the primary developer on our credit model. Your job will primarily consist of making production-ready code that can digest data, both external and internal, to assist our credit department in credit decision making. As Ageras Finance, and this area, is a new venture for us you’ll be building new systems from the ground up.
Our main platform is built in Laravel (PHP), but since this is a data intensive application, we expect credit decision making to be built in Python. To work efficiently in the team we hope to find a person that has strong knowledge of Python, but who also has had exposure to PHP, preferably Laravel. We expect you to be able to write production-ready code - delivering a model in a Jupyter notebook is not sufficient. Essentially we’re looking for a hybrid between a data scientist and a software engineer.
- Build and maintain data ingestion pipelines retrieving data from various external sources such as company registries, open government data, etc., to facilitate credit decision making.
- Be the main driver of development of our credit decision models, from ingestion of data to building the actual model in Python, to deploying and running the model.
- Be part of our engineering team, contributing to both our PHP and Python codebases.
We look for candidates with a strong, analytical mind-set and a passion for high quality code. We value professional experience as much academic experience and are looking for a candidate with both a data science and engineering background.
To succeed in this position you probably have most of these things:
- Strong analytical skills with the ability to collect, organize, analyze, and disseminate significant amounts of information.
- Strong Python knowledge, including NumPy, Scikit-learn etc.
- Experience working as a backend engineer on web-based applications.
- Technical expertise regarding data models and data analysis.
- Problem solving aptitude.
- Preferably PHP experience, building web applications.
Why should you join us?
We take pride in our work, but we are also serious about fun. We are already a lot of developers across multiple companies working in our modern and inspiring office space in Gdansk. A lot of social events happening, and finally we give you the ability and freedom to grow your skills in the direction you want and where you want to go.

Ageras is not a company maintaining the status quo, it is a living organism – always adapting, always moving, always growing. The mindset of “just because something works, does not mean that it cannot be improved” is something incredibly valuable.

What do Ageras Group look for in a potential candidate?

What does your recruitment process look like?
A recruitment process at Ageras Group will most often look something like this:
Quick telephone screening – 1st interview – Assessment – 2nd interview - Hire
Read more about the 1st and 2nd interview below.
How should I prepare for a 1st interview?
If you are invited in for a 1st round interview, it’s because you have made a great first impression! Now we just want to get to know you better, and equally important - give you a chance to get to know us. The best advice we can give you is to be yourself. We will probably come well around your CV, but we would also like to know who you are when you are not at work. Maybe you have some cool hobbies, a totally unrealistic dream in life or an impressive party trick? Also, remember that we are here to answer all your questions as well. So fire away!
How should I prepare for a 2nd interview (/test-feedback)?
By now, we have must likely spoken a couple of times and hopefully feel that we know each other relatively well. For this 2nd interview, however, we will use the assessment you have done as a basis for dialogue about your approach to work and your professional behavior and mindset. Our goal is to come around your preferences, development areas and strengths so that your potential new manager will know how to create the best possible conditions for you and your employment.
In other words, we don’t expect much preparation from your side, expect for a bit of reflection about the above.
How should I dress for an interview at Ageras Group?
Dress as you! At Ageras Group, we don’t really have a dress code. Some like sneakers and hoodies, while others are more comfortable in a crisp shirt and polished shoes. Wear what you feel comfortable and confident in – so will we.
Can I apply for more than one job?
Sure thing! If there’s more than one job you could see yourself in, then that’s great! Just remember to express why this exact position is (also) the right match for you.
When can I expect to hear back from you after I have applied for a job?
We respect the time you have put into applying for one of our jobs, and do our best to get back to you as soon as we possibly can. Sometimes we manage get back to you within a couple of days, other times after a couple of weeks. However, you can always trust that we will get back to you within a maximum of four weeks.
Regardless if we see you as a good fit or not as the best fit this exact time around, you will ALWAYS hear back from us.
How long are vacancies open for applications?
We rarely operate with application deadlines. Instead, we keep each position open until we have found the very one. However, as a rule of thumb, you can expect a vacancy to be open for at least a couple of weeks.
What if I’m currently not based in the location for the job I’m interested in?
Awesome! We welcome applicants from all countries with a working permit in the country where the job is localized. Currently, we are proud to be represented by 19 different nationalities, and would love for the number to be even higher!
If you are invited to a physical interview in another country than you are currently residing in, we will of course reimburse all costs related to travelling.
In terms of relocating, we are not able to offer any relocation package, but will be happy to put our expertise at your disposal and help as much as we can.
