Scala Software Engineer - Bristol - microservices, Scala - To £70,000 + bonus + substantial benefits

A great new opportunity to join a highly successful and growing technology organisation as they seek to expand their Scala development team in central Bristol. They are also interested in Software Engineers who would like to crosstrain from another functional language into Scala or who have hobbyist experience in functional programming and want to take this into their workplace. There are multiple roles available and so the salary range offered can be anything between £40,000 - £70,000 + a significant benefits package that includes bonuses, flex-benefits, pension and an annual training budget.

This employer develop solutions that are used by thousands of consumers across the UK and who have established an enviable reputation, not only for providing an excellent service to their customers but also innovative technical solutions. As they continue to expand and take market share from their competitors they are now seeking a number of experienced Software Developers to join their team and contribute to the ongoing evolution of their technology services.

You will either already have professional experience of developing software using Scala or another functional programming language (Clojure, Haskell, Erlang, Golang, Lisp, F#, Ramda etc) or will instead be developing software in another language such as Java, Python or .Net but have an interest in functional programming to the point where they have developed functional software projects in their spare time. Any additional experience in Spark or Kafka would be beneficial but not essential.

This is an excellent opportunity to join an employer who really invest in their employees; as well as facilitating your cross-training into Scala as part of their benefits package they offer employees an ongoing training budget to develop skill in whatever other technologies are of interest (and relevant to the job!). Other benefits also include a twice yearly bonus, flexible working hours, flexible benefits, pension and up to 31 days holiday per year!

If you'd like to join a collaborative and friendly software development organisation in which your contribution will make a real difference, and one where you have the opportunity to advance your skills and career this is the role you've been looking for!!
