The core platform is where most of the heavy lifting happens and experience with message based architectures (ActiveMQ/JMS) would be highly beneficial. The existing Scala team practice Agile (Scrum) and continuous delivery through automation of build, test and deployments. The team look to use the best tool for the job, often identifying benefits of new tech, running with it and failing quickly if necessary.
