Job Description

1 billion videos to 20 million users across 20+ platforms including Amazon Fire, Xbox, Android and iOS devices to name a few!


We are working with one of if not the biggest commercial television network in the UK. After having a very exciting and record-breaking year with unmatched record numbers streaming the world cup this summer and many successes with other productions it is a great time to join. With new options for distribution growing every day there is much ground to be made with smart homes, new streaming platforms and new shows from the studios, why not join up and be a part of the success!?  


The Role:

The Scala practises lean strongly towards pure typed functional programming, and heavy use of libraries that support – such as Cats / Scalaz, Http4s, Circle and Doobie.  Services are supported with UI components written in Elm but no previous experience with this is required.

The team is diverse with a good mixture of backgrounds and skills, you will need to be a good team fit – the current size is around 10 with big growth plans.


What you will need to be considered for this role:  

  • Scala development skills and knowledge of Scala ecosystem
  • Good knowledge of at least one other functional programming language
  • Knowledge of testing techniques and strategies
  • Web services architectures, particularly REST and caching
  • Experience with operational concerns
  • Messaging system experience is also desirable
  • High-level knowledge of relational and NoSQL data stores
  • Unix command line and basic systems administration
  • Diagnosis of functional and performance problems
  • Good team communication skills


If you have some but not all of the above please get in touch – I’d still like to speak with you regarding similar opportunities I have in London
