The Job

We are building a distributed cloud-based application using Scala and JavaScript (AngularJs) for the web components, Haskell for the platform components and a mixture of bash and ruby scripting for our automation components. We are looking for a Scala developer that wants to take over the development of the customer facing web applications. It takes a lot of work to build a suite of world-class customer products, here are some of the tasks/epics that we will be tackling in the coming months: buffing out our reporting and visualization capabilities, continue to enhance our engaging UX, instrumentation of our codebase so we can surface metrics to facilitate meaningful conversations with "the business".

You will have a lot of autonomy over how you spend your time, your skills & interests will determine what you will work on first. Our engineering team is very open to ideas, and we are looking for you to come in and make a difference right away. The team is comprised of engineers that represent the 3 pillars of our application web, platform & automation, you will be the 2nd engineer in the web team. There will be ample opportunity to move around within the engineering group, but for now the immediate need is to work on the web side of things.

We are looking for an "all arounder", someone that wants to develop skills in all aspects of web development. If you are strong with databases and visualization and interested in web development - we're cool with that - or vice versa. We are building a great company, and we are looking for a great team member.
