Scala Backend Engineer

Permanent  |  £50000 - £90000 per annum  |  Central London  |  City of London

Functional Programming  •  Back End Development

It's Sunday the 15th of July 2018, you're given a free ticket to a Scala conference where you can meet a speaker you've been following for years but wait a minute, it's the world cup final, what would you do?

Hard to choose? Then this might just be the company for you. A place where you can combine your Scala expertise with your love of football.

We have a unique position to work as a Scala Backend Engineer joining an exciting mobile startup catered to the huge community of football fans across the world.

You will join the organisation as an integral stage of growth as the 12th member of an intelligent team of successful startup founders and engineers who are working on Scala, front-end technologies and mobile development.

You will build and maintain a functional infrastructure in a variety of areas centred around the functionalities of the app such as live messaging, scalable infrastructure and broadcasting to name a few.

Due to the nature of the startup, you will not be tied to specific technologies, you will work as a team to use the best technology to ensure the continued success of the app. Some of the technologies that the team have found works best for them so far and you will get to work with are Scala, Play, Cassandra, Storm, Kafka, AWS and Kubernetes.

You don't need to have worked with all of these technologies, however, a strong functional mindset and experience with Scala are needed as you'll be joining a small team creating scalable backend services within an agile environment.

Aside from the technical challenge this position will bring, you'll also work alongside a team that places a huge emphasis on being social, embracing the industry and everyone feels included and valued. They do this by regularly socialising and providing a flexible environment centred on trust...they also have a 5 a side league if you've got quick feet.

This position won't be for everyone but will be perfect for the football fans out there looking to combine work with play! Do get in touch with Alice if you would like to find out more.
