This start-up business has developed a cutting-edge retail platform aimed at the automotive market, and are looking to become the go-to website for consumers and retail businesses. In order to do this they are currently looking to hire a number of software developers (as a result of recent funding) who will scale the platform in order to accommodate the increasing customer-base.
Once the developers join, the CTO will begin to take more of a strategic approach to the platform which will allow the new hires to have masses of responsibility from day one, as well as the opportunity to deliver their own ideas with no bureaucracy involved.
The platform has been built using Scala, Play and MongoDB, using Heroku as their hosting platform.
We are therefore looking for:
- Proven ability using the Scala language (Java 8 also considered)
- Extensive experience building scalable systems
- Knowledge of the Play framework highly advantageous
- Educational background in computer engineering (or equivalent)
