Software Engineer - Scala (m/f)

Job description

Are you looking for an exciting product, responsibility for your own projects from day one in a dynamic environment?

So do we. Come and move the world with us!

The Free2Move ecosystem is a family of enterprise-level services from a French automotive group, created and maintained by our ambitious and enthusiastic tech teams. Which we desire to extend with skilled software engineers like you! You will be part of an agile, cross-functional team focused on designing & implementing scalable and highly-reliable solutions.

Our current backend services are mostly Scala-based. They are supported by a range of modern technologies, including Redis for caching, RabbitMQ for messaging, MongoDB and PostgreSQL for persistence, etc. This tech stack, of course, is not carved in stone; we are open to any suggestion that might help us improve our daily work.

If you are an expert in these technologies, a veteran dedicated to producing top quality software and find our adventure interesting - then we have a place for you!


As a Scala engineer:

  • You feel more than comfortable with functional programming, and have gone (or, at least have a desire to go) beyond using just monads
  • You have practical experience in developing RESTful services using Akka Http, Play and/or http4s
  • You have worked on projects that utilize streaming I/O libraries, such as Akka Streams, scalaz-streams or fs2
  • Deep knowledge of Scala-based testing frameworks, such as ScalaTest and ScalaCheck, is mandatory
  • You are at least interested in more advanced Scala libraries, such as scalaz, cats, shapeless, etc.

As a software engineer in general:

  • You have passion for microservice-based architectures and API-first development approach
  • You are capable of making architectural decisions that will result in scalable, reliable, and performant systems
  • You have a solid understanding of clean coding principles, functional and enterprise design patterns, and test-driven development
  • You don't run away from documenting services under your supervision
  • You are a team player and you're able to give as well as receive feedback

Also nice to have:

  • Experience with, or interest in, modern software development approaches, such as reactive programming, CQRS, DDD, etc.
  • Experience in developing applications for cloud platforms, namely AWS
  • Experience in working with containers, service meshes, API gateways, service directories and similar technologies that make working with microservices a bit less painful
  • Practical experience with build automation, continuous delivery, scripting, etc.
