    For more Junior positions we don’t require experience, but drive and ability to get there. 

    So for a Wannabe we are looking for someone who:

    A more senior roles would require:

    We are not very much concerned with your formal education or any other formalism. What we are concerned with is your passion, knowledge and experience.


    The particular project we have in mind for the role is to make tons of data work for a world-famous client of ours. The scale allows - for applying machine learning pipelines, which you would be part of as well.

    In general though - we  take on projects in various sectors (finance, e-commerce, software tools development, manufacturing etc) and for customers around the world (usually outside of Poland in the UK, US, Dubai, Shanghai, Australia). 

    As a company we are mostly focused on Lightbend technologies (Scala, Akka, Play, Spark), but there are exceptions. Often our projects are of unprecedented scale or complexity (including working with one of the largest Scala codebases in the world, or applying custom modifications to the Scala compiler itself).  

    We are based in Cracow, Poland. We allow some sporadic remote work (usually 1 or 2 days a week), but the bulk of the work is to be done in our office with the rest of the team.

    What to expect

    We rely heavily on industry best practices and put a lot of emphasis on code quality, scalability, performance, availability and robustness. We take these things very seriously.

    In most of our projects:

    We put emphasis on internal training. We even have a department which specializes in internal and external training. We also participate in and sponsor many technical conferences (both in Poland and abroad) and encourage employees to present speeches, run workshops or even become certified trainers. The professional growth of our team is an important part of our company culture.

    If this sounds interesting to you, just get in touch and tell us about yourself.
