We are excited to be partnered with a truly fantastic Fintech organisation that is globally recognised in their field. Due to their consistent success and with the technology sector constantly evolving, a large investment has been made to expand the Technical R&D arm of the business with Poland being the chosen location.

Currently the team is transitioning to Scala from Java so this is an excellent opportunity for employees to either gain and obtain hands on Scala programming skills or for the more experienced developers a chance to really expand your knowledge and use of the language. Continued investment means you will be able to have access to working on the latest tools and technologies whilst tackling daily business challenges to keep you on top of your development game!
