The company culture is excellent, with a strong focus on agile development but also ensuring positivity and creativity is promoted, in a technical and non-technical sense. The organisation have a philosophy which focuses on ensuring their engineers are happy and technically challenged throughout.

The existing engineers you will have the opportunity to lead within the team are heavily involved and proactive within the Scala community, with various active contributions to Open Source, but also through sharing stories and talks at meetups and conferences.
