Role My Client needs a server-side focussed developer to help them improve their core platform services. If you can help build a next generation system we're interested in talking to you. What you already have:

* An expertise in the Java language (3 years minimum)
* Exposure to at least one other JVM based language
* The ability to write raw SQL beyond just simple select statements (1 year minimum)
* Familiarity with automated testing
* Good interpersonal skills and a great team attitude
* The ability to quickly learn new things and adapt

What we'd like you to have in an ideal world:

* Some experience with Scala and its ecosystem such as Play and Akka
* Familiarity with Java Servlets, because there's always legacy code
* A working knowledge of functional programming and its advantages
* An understanding of asynchronous/reactive programming
* Exposure to integrating third party APIs
* Experience in performance profiling and tuning Java applications
* Some experience with PHP as some parts of our system are written in it



Company approach:

* A small company, can-do ethos
* We focus on getting stuff done, not on process or management hierarchy
* A distributed workforce but communicating regularly
* Sharing expertise and learning from others to keep improving as a team
* A flexible working schedule



The job:

* Working remotely
* Adding new features to the existing platform
* Adding new integrations to the existing platform
* Working with the rest of the team to migrate the platform to a new architecture and technology stack based around Scala + Akka.
* Developing services to support websites and administration UI, working with front end developers as necessary
* Diagnosing and fixing production issues
* Taking part in code reviews
* Not being phased by the strange variety of things that need doing in a small growing company
* Being proactive and not just waiting to be told the next thing to do
* Finding better ways that we can get things done



Salary depends on experience but is always competitive plus benefits.
