My client is one of UK’s leading entertaining brands and is now looking for a Junior Scala Developer to join their already successful team in London. A truly exciting and inclusive place to work – a place where you can be yourself and let your skills shine.

Their cloud platform is written in Scala using Cats ( also very interested in ZIO). They run the app in a docker container on AWS.

You will be responsible for:

? Evaluate, integrate and upgrade new and existing frameworks and infrastructure to keep their stack and architecture lean

? Develop their API as a product with a focus on developer experience with clear and concise documentation

? Understand complex requirements, collaborate with team members and deliver solutions all the way from concept directly to their customers

? Manage live infrastructure with a focus on security, resilience, and scalability

? Champion best practice for building scalable apps using their API  

What skills are they looking for?

? Be passionate about development and enthusiastic about Scala

? Have an interest in strongly typed, functional programming

? Be collaborative and keen to help team members

? Drive results by taking projects from inception to production

? Share responsibility for the platform and take ownership of deliverables
