Scala Developer – £40-£65k
I’m currently recruiting for one of the UK’s technology powerhouses in the retail industry. Their customers place orders on their award winning website or mobile apps and in a typical week, they deliver over 150,000 customer orders: in the region of 7 million individual items. They serve over 70% of British households.
Unlike many companies who outsource their software development, almost all of their software is developed in-house: that makes them a very unusual retailer indeed. From the optimisation algorithms that fine tune their daily delivery routes, to the machine learning techniques that drive their consumer demand forecasting, to their real-time control systems.
They are continuing to invest millions in their state of the art technology and to develop software systems and algorithms to solve an array of complex problems with no off-the-shelf solution. They are constantly investigating new technology and have recently started to implement Scala and React.JS in to their technology stack. They are currently looking for Scala developers to join their team.
Some of their recent research projects include:
Machine learning, adaptive systems and inference engines
Robotics and 2D/3D vision systems
Controls systems engineering
Optimisation and analytics
They have been described as the Amazon of food for their cutting-edge warehousing and delivery system.
Commercial Scala development experience is preferable, however if you have done a course or personal project in Scala please do get in touch.
