  • Provide technical/engineering support for new and existing applications from code delivery until the retirement of the application

Required Qualifications:

  • 4+ years of professional development experience.
  • Minimum 1 year using Scala with Typelevel Stack (CatsCats-effect, Shapeless, Doobie, ZIO, MonixScalaZHttp4s)
