Full Time
We are an international data science and analytics scale up primed to disrupt the every sector we are engaged in. Big Data is a big buzz word at the moment, what we are trying to do is helping to understand customers better through personalization, filter through the news, and observe the language that customers use to understand what they are interested in.

Our clients range from Paddy Power, to Paysafe and Big Banks.

What you will be doing?

We are looking for an ambitious software engineer who wants to evolve our applications using a stack that includes Scala, MongoDB, RabbitMQ, AWS. As a senior developer, you will work with our existing team of 11, mixing in with Data scientists, python and functional programmers. You will be working across a range of our products building and maintaining 3 complex Saas products.

It’s all about the engineering:

We appreciate that finding dedicated Scala developers is difficult, however we do feel it’s the language of the future. “I’d rather have a lot of talent and a little experience than a lot of experience and a little talent”. We’re always looking for talented individuals… If you combine this with the ability to learn quickly from mistakes then you’re on to a winner! If you are come from a C# or Java background and have worked at enterprise scale, then we want to speak with you!
  • We’re not asking you to be fluent in everything. The point is not necessarily fluency, but gaining a conceptual vocabulary to attack problems in new ways.
  • Good programmers don’t just learn how to code–learning core concepts teaches them how to wrap their brain around a problem and produce efficient code to solve it.
  • If a programmer’s fluency matches the language used in the project they’re interviewing for, obviously that helps–but that’s less important than a programmer’s problem-solving/architecting skills.
  • The question shouldn’t be ‘What language should I pick up’–instead, it should be ‘what type of developer do I want to become,’
General responsibilities:
  • Maintaining and evolving our cutting-edge data processing systems.
  • Scala, MongoDB, RabbitMQ, Apache Kafka, Redis, AWS Customer-facing and internal RESTful APIs.
  • We will look at enterprise level Java developers too!
  • Familiarity with containerisations, continious integration, Dev-ops
If you are interested and want to hear more – please don’t hesitate to apply!
