Job Description

The Company


We are working closely with a successfully expanding Tech House within Krakow who have a passion for engineering. Due to their continued success within their marketspace and an ever growing project portfolio they are seeking multiple developers to come onboard and help drive the business forward in their latest exciting chapter.


The Role


Are you a Java developer looking to become a Scala Developer? If yes then this could be the perfect next role for you!! You will be joining an already established functional development team who are working on Scala and Java8. You will need to have approximately 3+ years commercial experience programming with Java8 but will not require any Scala commercial knowledge! A new project is currently moving heavily towards Scala as the main programming language so for the first 6 months this will be maintenance focused up to 80% but will then proceed in to a new greenfield development project replacing legacy code with new Scala code. You will receive great support and instruction from a number of talented functional developers helping you to make the successful transition from a Java Developer to a Functional Scala Developer.




  • Excellent knowledge of Backend development with 3+ years commercial experience using Java8
  • Scala experience or use on personal projects is beneficial but not essential
  • Must have a passion for Scala and want to transition to this language
  • Commercial experience using MongoDB, Camel, NoSQL, ElasticSearch would all be beneficial
  • Excellent understanding of Agile methodology principles
  • Good problem solving skills
  • Excellent communication skills
