Hiring full-time back-end developer

We are looking for an experienced back-end developer to advance Mullvad’s back-end services.

You will be part of a small team working together to improve existing services, as well as develop new ones. Our stack is mainly written in Python, Rust, and Go.

This is an ongoing, full-time position. Mullvad is located in Gothenburg, Sweden. While we prefer an on-site addition to our team, at least in the initial months, we welcome remote-based applicants too.


  • You have a few years’ experience in developing, designing the architecture for, and deploying back-end services.
  • You are comfortable using the right tools for the job and open to learning new skills when necessary.
  • You have run and deployed services on Linux-based systems and know your way around a terminal.
  • You are fluent in English.

Nice but not necessary

Experience with running services on bare-metal infrastructure is a bonus.

Other pluses include

  • extensive experience in developing services in Python, Rust, or Go
  • familiarity with using Qubes OS
  • experience with Docker and Kubernetes
  • experience in using configuration management such as Ansible or Saltstack
  • interest in building systems with a heavy focus on security and privacy
  • experience with low-level performance testing.


We believe in having a life outside of work. That’s why we offer

  • flexible working hours
  • 25 days of annual paid vacation
  • 500 EUR annually in allowance toward wellness-related activities (friskvårdsbidrag)
  • the possibility of working remotely for extended periods of time.

We also offer opportunities for growth. Aside from company-initiated opportunities for attending various national and international conferences, you will also have the option to attend one of your choosing per year. In addition, we’ll pay for any reading material that you feel contributes to your professional development.

Apply by June 15

If you’re interested in joining our team, send us an email at by June 15. Applications will be reviewed as they come in, so the position may be filled before the deadline.
