Backend Scala Developer - No commercial Scala experience needed

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

Functional Programming  •  Back End Development

Are you a Backend Developer looking to break into the world of Functional Programming? This a chance to work with a globally successful technology organisation working on sites with over 200 million monthly active users.

In their state of the art offices in Central London, you will join a team dedicated to engineering best practises, working with a modern approach to programming.

Although we're flexible on background, you are someone who's coding is clean, of excellent quality and thoroughly tested. This is a unique position to work alongside a team of experienced functional programmers on a progressive engineering stack.

Scala commercial experience is not needed, however, any contributions in Scala or personal projects/research would put you in great stead. We look at how you code in the language you're most comfortable in, rather than expect you to show us your Scala straight away.

From the start, you will cross train into Scala with the support of a team of senior engineers who are experts in Scala. Not only is this the chance to move into Scala, but the stack is also pretty special featuring Scala, Cassandra, Spark, Kafka, Elasticsearch, AWS, Docker and Kubernetes.

You will work on highly scalable projects tailored specifically to customer demand, meaning the stack that you're working on has a direct effect on the consumers globally. Joining a technically focused global business, you will also have the advantage of working with key Scala engineers and managers across the business to ensure you have the support in order to be kept up to speed.

This position is perfect for someone who is looking for a new technical challenge within Scala in an engineering team promoting modern approaches with best coding practices. It's very rare to have a live role like this, so grab it while you can!
