Job Description

Are you a JAVA or SCALA or PYTHON DEVELOPER, with 2-6 years’ experience, ready to take a huge step-up in your career?

Do you have an appetite to expand your skillset, work with the most advanced open-source technologies, and be trained to become a Polyglot Software Engineer (using languages like Java, Scala, Python, Go-Lang, ES6, NodeJs, ReactJs, Spark, Splunk, Akka, Redis, PostgreSQL, SQL, SPARQL, MongoDB, RabbitMQ, Gearman, Kafka and Elasticsearch)?

Are you sad that many of the greatest minds in our generation are busy tricking people into clicking on ads?

Are you sick of intra-office posturing, douchebaggery, and management that promise more than they ever deliver?

If this sounds like you keep reading.

I’m recruiting for a JAVA or SCALA or PYTHON DEVELOPER for an exceptionally rare opportunity.
You will join an Architectural and Software Engineering team, working on projects for one of the best known Multinational Big Four Technology leader, and most successful Music Streaming business.

LOCATION: Although the company is based in both Cape Town and San Francisco, obviously 100% remote working is now the way of the world.

SALARY: Very negotiable based on your skills and will be between R500K – R800K/annum. (However more senior/junior candidates are welcome to apply, and salary will reflect your level of experience).

Involves joining a team who are currently focused on backend development. They are passionate about large-scale applications on the Java Virtual Machine, data analysis pipelines based on graph databases (e.g. Neo4j) and graph analysis algorithms, static code analysis, functional languages, and concurrency models.

You will learn loads about solving problems that require a good amount of algorithms and data structures, and writing code that is modular, tested, and easy to read and maintain.
You’ll also work on tools that enable the analysis and refactoring of a massive Java codebase for one of the Big Four Tech Leaders; use static code analysis and graph algorithms to reason about the codebase and identify potential areas of refactoring.

Most importantly you will be a passionate Developer with a constant drive to learn and embrace new technologies.
If you’re a Java Developer, then some experience with Java 8+ features and build tools such as Maven or Gradle would be great. Of course, if you’re a Python Developer don’t worry about this.
Comfortable with both OOP and Functional programming.
