Location: Cambridge
Posted on: November 22, 2021

Job Description:

The Instaclustr Consulting team is seeking a mid to senior level full stack web engineer (Scala) to assist our clients with software solutions that solve existing problems, enable new business objectives, and ensure security, performance, and scalability, while not sacrificing time to deployment. The selected candidate will begin as a contract employee, and will be converted to a permanent employee after a brief evaluation period.

You'll be joining a distributed team of web engineers working in the e-commerce space on a high scale, mission critical, distributed web system. You'll primarily be working on Scala based services, leveraging frameworks like Play and Spring, on top of data systems like Postgres, in a GitHub based workflow, coordinating via Slack, operating in GCP. What you bring to the team is as important as the technologies involved; bringing what you learn and know to support the continual improvement of your teammates is critical for our success with clients.

Who are we?

Instaclustr, recently named in Deloitte's 2020 fast 500 companies of North America after another monumental growth year, Instaclustr is an Australian owned open source as-a-service company, delivering reliability at scale.

In a perfect world, you'd check all the boxes, but obviously we don't live in a perfect world (Hello 2021!). If you have most of the skills and are confident you can pick it up, we're willing to take a look.
