“Working at Scrive is all I could wish for coming in as a developer.

Superfriendly environment and colleagues, opportunity to explore and learn about new technical things and getting the feeling that I am a part of the team right from the start. ”

Gustaf, Junior Java Developer



At Scrive you will work in a fast and innovative environment and you will join an entrepreneurial and great-positioned company, growing at an exciting pace. Our aim is, that a few years from now, you will be able to say; “We did that, I was a part of the Scrive Story.”  

For us to keep on delivering the best product on the market and always be a step ahead on new features we want to strengthen our team with a Senior Java Developer. 

In the role as Java Developer you’re responsible for maintaining and improving the codebase but  also expanding the functionality after input and request from customers or colleagues. The main component is run on AWS Lambdas, so you will have an advantage if you have experience from the AWS environment. 

One of the core responsibilities is extensive processing of PDF documents. From time to time there will be a fair share of PDF’s that don't work as expected and then need to be handled and investigated, in code or by other means. 

The position is remote, available to anyone living in the EU, but if you are located in Stockholm you can also come to work at our wonderful HQ office in central Stockholm (subject to Covid-19 restrictions, of course). In this role you will report to your team lead and the Head of Platform. 


  • Develop code for maintaining and improving the Java 11 codebase for the extensive process of PDF documents 
  • Develop new features
  • Deploy and monitor the code 
  • Write tests for your code 


To succeed in the role as Senior Java Developer, we expect you to meet the following minimum qualifications: 

  • 3+ years of experience in Java
  • Has an understanding of the current best practices for writing quality code
  • Fluent in English, both written and spoken 

Big bonus points if you have previous experience of:

  • The AWS environment
  • Working with PDF or the iText library
  • High growth start up or scale up environment
  • Working remotely 

To succeed in the role as Senior Java Developer we will need you to be self-reliant. You are able to independently choose work methods and make necessary decisions to drive work forward, also when there are no given routines or guidance. You will join a small team that works closely together so it will be crucial for you to be highly co-operative. Where you pay attention to others opinions, competence and performance and make an effort to adjust your own behaviour in order to create good working relationships with others. This role is all about finding and delivering the best solution, therefore you need to be solution oriented, you have the ability to break down problems, do an analysis and take action to prevent problems and find the best solution. Scrive is in a growing phase where we are moving fast forward, this means that your prioritized list could change quickly. We therefore believe that you are a flexible person that quickly adjusts to new circumstances. 

Does this sound interesting? We look forward to hearing your ideas, so apply now!
