Senior Scala/Java Performance Engineer £70,000 - 95,000k Shoreditch We are currently working with an engineering led company who have built the ultimate simulation platform which powers massive-scale, AI simulations, imports predictive models and scales infinitely to answer existential questions. The product is currently focused in the Fin-tech space with Tier 1 banks already using their platform, but it’s potential is huge. They’re approaching Series A funding and are carefully scaling their engineering team in the next 12 months. This is a fairly niche role, they’re looking to hire a Software Engineer with a knack for JVM performance, to join the Platform team. The back-end is a mixture of Java and Scala, using technology such as Akka and Sangria, and interfacing with technologies such as Spark and the Hadoop ecosystem. The platform defines the data interaction and general interfaces for extension of their SDK, in addition to the APIs exposed to modellers to build their simulations. You will work with the other members of your team to identify performance deficiencies, propose and design improvements that could be made, and then implement those improvements. You will also mentor other members on the team, to encourage good practices for writing highly performant and maintainable code. The work would involve exposure to some cutting edge areas of technology such as a distributed graph processing engine, used for agent-based modelling. You’d also be exposed to areas such as core distributed and scalable platform engineering, performance improvement and optimisation, agent-based modelling, streaming, AI and machine learning. It’s a huge opportunity to have a considerable impact on a growing company with a big buzz around it. They’re located near Old Street. You’ll ideally need experience with • Adept in Scala / Java • JVM performance Bonus experience • Akka / Spark / Hadoop If you are interested in this role, please send us your CV to apply.
