We recently decided to enforce our development teams which is why we are looking for Scala Developers (all levels) for two different teams. All teams use Scala and functional programming paradigm, optimising performance and scalability. The tech stacks per team are slightly different, so let’s schedule a call  to find out the best fit for your interests and skills.
Each team has their own focus but with all of them you’ll be involved in shaping the team’s processes, have a say in what technology to use and how to implement new features, services and technical concepts.
