Job Description

An opportunity for Senior Scala Developers with experience using Scala, Cats, Monads, Shapeless, Haskell, Scalaz and Akka within an Agile environment to remote partially remotely.


About You

  • Excellent understanding and use of Scala within a commercial environment for 2yrs+ 
  • If you’ve acquired functional Scala experience using technologies such as Cats, Scalaz, Monads etc then this would be great
  • Experience working with Akka and a good understanding of distributed systems
  • If you’re a Senior Java Developer with a passion for Scala then this could also work
  • Preferably you’ve got hands on experience using Kafka or other real time messaging services
  • If you have experience using another functional language and want to move towards Scala this would also be looked at
  • Commercial experience within a cloud environment using AWS


A software product start-up are seeking experienced and talented Scala Developers to join their expanding Engineering team in the heart of Manchester. With a successful and popular platform that has received huge interest from a number of Financial organisations, this business is growing quickly. They have received vast investment from a number of sources and have great expectations for the future growth plans. This is an excellent opportunity to join a start-up business before they explode in their market space.


Scala and Functional Programming will be a key focus for you in this position. With an already established engineering team who are ramping up you will be a vital part of the expansion. This is an adult working environment so you will be given complete autonomy of your work load as well as the opportunity to change details if you feel a specific technology will be better suited. If you want a 9-5 job then this probably isn’t the one for you…this is a flexible working environment so there may be some later finishes but on the flip side if you need to work from home or leave early then this is never questioned. You will be part of a sociable team that enjoy a cliché ‘work hard play hard’ attitude. There’s plenty of fun times to equal the hard work put it, you may even find yourself in the pub for end of week meetings J



  • Flexible and remote working hours
  • 25 days holiday as standard
  • Remote working an option
  • An exciting and excellent working environment
  • Company stock options
  • Training budget for all
  • Sponsored conferences and events
