Software Engineer - Clojure, Java, Scala, Functional Programming - Bristol

An immediate opportunity for an experienced Software Engineer to join our innovative client in central Bristol as they embark on a significant expansion programme. The roles offers starting salaries of between £30,000 - £50,000 + benefits.

The company develops BigData software solutions for a variety of customers in the public and private sectors across the UK, EU and US. Their solutions ingest millions of pieces of unstructured data (documents, web pages, files etc) every day and then make sense of them, providing insight and analysis for their customers. Due to continued growth within their customer base as well as a broadening of their product portfolio they are now seeking experienced Software Engineers to join their Bristol based R&D team.

Applicants will ideally have a degree in Computer Science (or similar) and have solid experience with either Clojure, Java, Scala, or other Functional Programming languages. Those without Functional experience MUST show a strong desire to learn, evidence of hobbyist activities and side projects should be evident on CVs. Experience with BigData technologies such as Apache Storm, Spark or Hadoop or search solutions such as Lucene, SOLR or ElasticSearch would all be a distinct benefit but not essential. The company also use RxJS, CycleJS and Redux on the frontend. Given the nature of the software you will be developing, any exposure to information retrieval systems and natural language processing would also be beneficial but by no means essential.

Above all this employer is seeking enthusiastic technologists who are keen to push the limits of what can be done by current technologies whilst keeping one eye on the future so as to make recommendations regarding the next languages and tools that could also be used.

This role offers a generous salary and benefits package as well as the opportunity to join an innovative employer as they take their business to the next level. It's an exciting time to join so, for more details and an immediate telephone interview please send me your CV today.
