The Ontology Way

Back End Developer

We're developing state of the art software technology that helps businesses reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Our first goal is to launch a SaaS pilot, and we're looking to extend the team with additional back end developers.

Your CV is less important. More important is that you are:
  • Smart (we're not kidding when we say that our technology is state of the art).
  • A seasoned coder that writes readable, reliable, and performant code.
  • Excited about the idea of building a software from scratch.
  • Humble and listen to other people's ideas.
  • Fluent in English. Speaking Swedish is a plus but not a must.
  • Excited by the startup journey and to build a company that makes a difference in the world.
  • Can work partly from Malmö.


At the core, we’re building a digital twin database and our tech stack today includes Java and Neo4j, so fluency in any of those is a plus (at this stage, we are open to tech stack changes). In addition to that, we appreciate (almost) whatever knowledge and skills you bring besides coding.

Our journey is at an early stage; we are currently 2 employees and we've just received initial funding, but in the future, we see ourselves as a global SaaS company, facilitating business collaboration to accelerate all the UN sustainable development goals. Our first focus, however, is Responsible Consumption and Production (12), Climate Action (13) and Partnership for the Goals (17).

Sustainability permeates everything we do, from how we furnish our office and encourage our employees to be their whole selves to how we design our license model and choose our KPIs. We believe in a flat organization inspired by Teal principles and an infinite game!

What we offer:
  • A real possibility to change the world for the better.
  • Great influence over the technological foundation.
  • A creative environment with a focus on innovation.
  • A decent salary and equity in the company.
  • An open-minded and relaxed atmosphere where any thought can be ventilated and discussed.
  • A workplace where the well-being of the team is highly prioritized.
