Software Developer

We are looking for a Software developer - Server Side

This opportunity would suit an adaptable, independent starter, with the ability to motivate themselves. You will need to be happy working in a company with a flat hierarchy, and happy to do what is required to reach your development goals.

You will get to solve some interesting problems so a proven ability to smoothly move from rapid prototype to structured, maintainable, and testable code would be an advantage.

Initially, this position will be remote working. High-specification remote working setup provided.


Should have

  • Knowledge of Java + a functional programming language such as Scala, Haskel or Kotlin and its associated frameworks.
  • Webservices/Microservices knowledge (i.e. REST, HTTP, JSON, etc.) using Scala and AWS.
  • Good analytical skills. Ability to create a specification. Then suggest and balance out any conflicts. You will then need to select a good fit from maybe several competing technologies, for use in the tech stack. The resulting system should then be as close to satisfying the specification as possible, given any conflicts.
  • Have the capability to verify the suitability of any specification, and then develop code and infrastructure based on that specification, and stack.
  • Ability to develop a schedule in cooperation with other team members.
  • Using Git in a team environment.
  • Some Knowledge of QA, testing and testing tools such as ScalaTest.
  • Practical debugging skills both locally and across services.
  • Willingness to do a bit of other development-related work if required such as front end work, testing, setting up service infrastructure etc.


Nice to have

  • Akka (actors, streams, Akka HTTP, etc.).
  • Knowledge of Continuous Integration systems.

  • Data Analysis skills.
  • Interest in other languages and technologies: Python, C++, Java, JavaScript, Scala, Scala.JS, etc.
  • Any interest in the various technologies such as Spark, Cassandra, Kafka, Lagom, etc.

Based on an initial video interview we may ask you to complete realistic programming & design challenges in your own time to highlight your skills and problem-solving ability.
