Fantastic opportunity to LEARN and work on exciting tech like AWS & BIG DATA!

Exciting opportunity within a global data-driven marketing company based in London for an experienced Scala Developer. As well as being a strong Scala Developer (Spark) you must have a keen interest in Big Data technologies.

The successful candidate will be working on cutting edge technologies (Scala, Java, Hadoop, Kafka, Chef and Docker) in an Agile environment following BDD practices.

The Company:

A market leading Data Retrieval company who have been established for over 20 years, incredibly innovative, embracing new technologies and constantly improving the way they work. They have recently embraced SCALA and have created a new Scala Development Team. Plans are underway to move to the Cloud and they offer fantastic opportunities to LEARN cloud tech like AWS/Docker. They embrace Agile methodologies - by no means Agile Evangelists yet but they are moving in that direction and will be looking to embrace SOLID principles along the way.

The Role:

They are expanding their technical team to support an exciting road map of new mobile and conventional web based consumer and business products and services. They are seeking a Scala Developer (Scala, Spark) who will be working with the latest cutting edge technology stack the industry can offer, in this role you will have the autonomy to make decisions on the technology you will be implementing, if you have an opinion on how to improve the development and production process - your voice will be heard!

Opportunities to learn and work on new technologies are encouraged and they will support you to achieve technical certifications, so if you have an interest in learning AWS/Docker, REACT, BIG DATA, or Hadoop for example, you will be encouraged to attend courses to achieve the technical certifications and further enhance your technical knowledge. You will have great opportunities to be involved in the full development life cycle of products and continually work on Greenfield features as well as maintaining their existing applications.

This is a fast paced organisation using Agile methodologies to deliver excellent solutions. Previous commercial experience of Agile/TDD/BDD would be beneficial but are not essential - just a hunger to learn them!

They are seeking a successful Scala developer to join their friendly and motivated team in their plush open plan offices overlooking spectacular views in London.
