Building on our recent successful placements with this client, Signify have been to continue facilitating their headcount growth by adding a number of Senior and Principal Scala Developers who will join established teams working in a Functional Scala Tech Stack (Cats and Zio). 

Initial contract will be written through to mid 2022 however ideal candidates will be those interested in taking full advantage of the opportunity, training and chance to work for a company where FP is embraced from the top down (CTO is a published FP author) rather than having to work against the tide and hesitations of leadership/ colleagues who are resistant to adopting FP and Scala technologies fully. 

You will have access to personal development opportunities, including Functional IT conferences, internal training, and lunch and learn sessions which we will also be helping to organize and support. (Yes - really, although a contract role, our client is serious about the long term opportunity so invests in contractors the same way they do the permanent employees).

Time Sensitive hiring process - 2x Remote Client Interviews which we are actively booking slots for now.

Competitive hourly rate - $80-$130 per subject to experience - higher rates possible for those who demonstrate strong ability and passion during the interview process.


  • High transaction (Amazon level number of Users), low latency systems
  • Strong experience with Scala
  • Functional experience would be a bonus with Scala tech such as Cats, Zio, Scalaz, Http4s etc but also experience with FP languages such as Haskell etc
  • If more Akka, Play etc Scala background must have keen desire and willingness to learn and work on more functional aspects

Please reach apply here or for those most interested - book time to speak directly with me -
