Job Summary

You want to be part of an agile, cross-functional team focused on designing & implementing scalable and highly-reliable solutions?

Our current backend services are mostly Scala-based. They are supported by a range of modern technologies, including Redis for caching, RabbitMQ for messaging, MongoDB and PostgreSQL for persistence, etc. This tech stack, of course, is not carved in stone; we are open to any suggestion that might help us improve our daily work.

If you are an expert in these technologies, a veteran dedicated to producing top quality software and find our adventure interesting - then we have a place for you!

You feel more than comfortable with functional programming, and have gone (or, at least have a desire to go) beyond using just monads
You have practical experience in developing RESTful services using Akka Http, Play and/or http4s
You have worked on projects that utilize streaming I/O libraries, such as Akka Streams, scalaz-streams or fs2
Deep knowledge of Scala-based testing frameworks, such as ScalaTest and ScalaCheck, is mandatory
You are at least interested in more advanced Scala libraries, such as scalaz, cats, shapeless, etc.
