Scala Backend Developer

Job description

Imagine the impact you could have on improving healthcare (globally)... 

We have a great opportunity for a backend developer (Scala). Join us in developing and improving Luscii further to make sure everyone gets the best possible care. Anywhere, anytime, globally.

 

We are looking for experienced backend developers who are not afraid of challenges, love learning, are data driven and are interested in working closely with the business.

 

As a backend developer at Luscii you will be turning our apps into world class healthcare products. Your focus will be on developing scalable APIs, databases, and data processing infrastructure for our health apps. And besides that, you will have the choice / control over which roles you are interested in contributing to Luscii. We value showing initiative and taking responsibility as part of our Luscii culture.

 

What makes this all interesting? 

You’re going to work in an Agile environment on challenging topics such as our micro-services landscape, services around streaming video or wearable sensor data. A big part of your daily activities will be designing backend architecture and development of new RESTful JSON API’s, SQL and NoSQL databases and you’re expected to have an opinion about data processing infrastructure.

 

Together with the backend guild and other circles you will be part of, you have great influence on technical choices and you ensure high test code coverage, documentation of interfaces, and neatly refactored code and architecture.


Still not convinced? What else:

  • We have flexible working hours, I mean... who doesn’t like to work whenever he is most productive. And at the location of your choice, so also from home part of the time.
  • You get 10% personal time and budget to develop your skills, organise a hackathon, work on pet projects, or share / gain knowledge
  • We will provide you with the hardware you need to be as effective as possible
  • Creative playful start-up office in the center of Amsterdam
  • Monthly company activities organised by our culture creators
  • Lunch is taken care of by our Foodie
  • Possibilities for visiting conferences or taking courses
  • Expat services (we help you to get to Amsterdam and find your way)
  • And don’t forget about salary based on your knowledge and experience, pension and travel allowance

Requirements

We want to be part of the best in our field. So we embrace learning and getting better every day. This goes for our products but also our people. At Luscii, we don’t have to motivate you to keep track of relevant developments in the field, you’re probably already up to date about technologies like Cassandra, but you’re keen to know more and more. We support this!


And before diving into our 'wishlist', an important thing to mention is that Luscii is based on teamplay. So we don't look for heroes (only at the football table ;) ) but for people who really like to be part of a (international) team that helps and stand outs for each other.


Our ideal candidate:

  • can tell us all about what you’ve done with Scala or PHP (both part of the tech stack) for at least the last 3 years
  • has got experience with RESTful APIs, JSON, SQL, and NoSQL
  • knows his/her way around the AWS stack
  • speaks and writes English
  • needs no explanation about Scrum / Kanban and Git version control
  • writes unit tests and knows about frameworks like Cucumber
  • is curious about Akka, Cassandra, Kafka, Kubernetes, Spark and more
  • knows about Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD)
  • preferably holds a Bachelor degree

And...

  • Is interested in learning and working in a Holacracy organization and
  • Shares our passion to make this world a better place, especially in the field of healthcare
