Software Engineers to Alva Labs
There is something seriously broken with recruitment.
- Candidates struggle to show who they are and instead spend time in tedious processes
- Companies miss out on talent due to focusing on old-fashioned success markers
- Studies indicate that more than 40% of all hires are unsuccessful
Do you want to be part of the solution?
We are always looking for great people to join our team. Right now we are not actively recruiting for this position, but always want to get in touch with brilliant people. Interesting? Read further!
Alva Labs is a Stockholm-based SaaS company that offers a solution that is helping global companies scientifically grow their team. Alva has created a unique candidate assessment platform that helps companies build their organisations with the right people in the right place. Combining state-of-the-art psychometrics, data science, and an obsession with candidate experience, it provides the needed tool for data-driven talent acquisition.
We are growing 2-3x per year and are in the exciting phase to launch Alva in new markets. Our current focus is on building a great product, enabling Product-Lead-Growth, and releasing our next big bets.
Working as a Software Engineer at Alva Labs
Our day-to-day work is performed in small cross-functional squads with dedicated missions. Each team is working on making hiring better for everyone. Either you will be focusing on the candidate experience, or working on making the recruiter's and hiring manager's lives easier.
You will work closely with other experienced engineers as well as designers, and product managers and build a platform that supports thousands of users every day.
Our tech stack consists of:
- Google Cloud Platform
- PostgreSQL, Firestore
- Kubernetes, Cloud Run
- Protocol buffers
- Event-driven microservices
The tech stack is described in more detail → HERE ←.
Your background isn’t super important to us, as we are more interested in who you are. Ideally, you have worked with software engineering for some time and have experience in building distributed systems. More importantly, you:
- Love solving complex problems and turning them into solutions that breathe simplicity.
- Are ambitious and structured.
- Are a prestige-less team player.
- Our company language is English, so no need to speak Swedish.
Your future colleagues
We are a team of 80+ people, representing 18 different nationalities and a wide selection of professional backgrounds. And all of that is absolutely fantastic, but the true beauty is the trust and warmth you will experience. You will most likely never be as supported and have so many brilliant minds to learn from and ask for guidance. To quote our CEO during our last company trip, “It feels like hanging out with a bunch of old friends”.
We currently have a hybrid approach, so working from home or at the office, is your choice.

Why join Alva?
The problem we are solving is not just engaging and interesting (the combination of psychological science and statistics, with a large chunk of candidate experience obsession, what’s not to love?!), but it is also something that has a tremendous impact on both people and businesses. You will have the opportunity to work with something that truly makes a difference.
With 350+ customers, strong growth, happy users, and soon 300 000 assessed candidates, there is a lot of greatness to build on. We are now entering an exciting phase of our company journey.
We have flexible work hours, where you can decide for yourself what works best for you. You will get 7 weeks of vacation, an on-market salary, a generous preventive care benefit, and a few other neat perks. You can read all about our benefits → HERE ← and our company values → HERE ←.
