Our mature Agile environment will give you a great working environment to collaborate with fellow specialists from development and other disciplines.
Working with us will mean delivering user-centric digital services from cradle to grave working on high performance cloud platforms using emerging languages and technologies.
Keeping things fresh is something we encourage in our working practices, but the culture of continuous improvement is equally as important in our technical approach to building and delivering modern digital services. As a valued team member, your knowledge and experiences will be used to change the way we build solutions including utilising new tools and technologies to solve new problems or improve existing services.
Working on our services means you'll have your own team, but you'll also be a part of a several communities spread over multiple sites. This means you'll always have people on hand to share and discuss ideas and get help when needed. Like your team, your communities are also self-sufficient, so if you want to change something it's within your power to do so.
Ideal candidates will have strong technical competence in:
- Unit testing and integration testing
- MUST have experience of tech leading in teams 8+ in size
Experience of Cloud based infrastructure is desirable, along with an understanding of application security principles, continuous integration and continuous delivery.
As a well-rounded Agile developer, we expect adaptability plus general skills in problem solving, business analysis, quality assurance, application design and architecture to compliment your Scala development specialism.
In an Agile environment communication is key and therefore we expect professionalism, good communication skills and approachable team members.
As a Lead Scala Developer your primary focus will be to deliver user stories whilst working as a part of a multi-disciplined team.
You'll be working closely with user researchers and designers to build, deploy and support your Scala Play microservices using well established software development techniques such as TDD and pair programming.
We get involved with all stages of service delivery including configuring, deploying and monitoring using industry standard tooling, to truly work in a DevOps capacity.
Whilst working in a collaborative environment you are going to meet a variety of different people who, like you, have a wealth of knowledge and experience. As a part of one or more communities you will have the opportunity to influence how we grow as delivery centre and how we do things by sharing ideas and working with others to make things better.
