Your job in Java development

Develop the smartest banking in Switzerland together with us

At PostFinance, we work on ways of managing Switzerland’s money both now and in the future. We create practical solutions for our customers and help shape the technology trends on the market. We achieve this thanks to our unique culture, which enables us to work with a pioneering spirit every day.

Working for a modern employer

Working from home isn’t just a “nice-to-have” perk for us, but has been standard for a long time. In many units, our employees have the option to work from home in Switzerland. What’s more, we provide modern workspaces at our Bern headquarters, with creative zones and areas for exchanging ideas. We also offer co-working spaces in central locations at Bern station and Zurich Oerlikon station. Balancing work and leisure is very important to us, which is why you can flexibly organize your working hours with us.

With us you get ahead

At PostFinance, we offer you a wide range of opportunities to get ahead: whether through the support of in-house basic and advanced training, or external study programmes and conferences, such as:

  • CAS in various fields
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree programmes
  • Participation in conferences such as DevOps-Fusion, Swiss Testing Days, Java User Group (jug), JAX & W-JAX
  • On-the-job training (e.g. code review, communities and internal channels, CoPs on various topics and interdisciplinary/cross-disciplinary workshops)

What will you be working on at PostFinance?

At PostFinance, you will work as a Java developer in a wide range of areas: whether for online banking, our name-matching application or for the automation of business processes. In our agile and interdisciplinary teams, you will work as a developer in the back end using Spring Boot and in the front end using Angular.

First-hand accounts – employees talk about their job

  • “As a full stack developer, I work in a highly professional team in customer order management. We develop BPMN workflow-based applications that automate our customer order processing, improve the customer experience and facilitate the work of PostFinance employees. The technical challenges are multifaceted: use of the Camunda Process Engine with Java backend and Angular frontend, deployed on Spring Boot and in Kubernetes. We are involved in establishing specifications with the specialists and are responsible for everything from development to maintenance in production. What I like is the culture of trust in the team and how the developers help each other to find solutions.”

  • “Our young team is currently made up of seven people. As our software is still in the phase before the first official release, our team is supported by internal as well as external staff. My colleagues are very helpful and I enjoy learning new things every day. This enables me to become familiar with complex processes and the current PostFinance systems. We are busy developing new process automation software. This will help make order processing for master data adjustments as automated as possible. My most important tools are IntelliJ, web browsers, Docker, Camunda Modeler, Confluence, Jira, Google and Skype. I appreciate the fact that at PostFinance I’m able to develop state-of-the-art software thanks to the latest technologies and versions, and keep up to date myself at the same time. We also meet every Monday morning for a cyber coffee ;)”
