Software Engineer – Functional Programmer (Scala/Haskell/OCaml)

Location: Sydney based

Permanent positions ($170K+ + package) or Long-term contract

My client has a need for 2 software engineers experienced in developing massively scalable systems (ideally using Scala) and delivering valuable business focused solutions. This is a great chance to work for a rapidly expanding end client with large budgets, offering a great salary package and chance to developer your career in the Big Data Analytics space.

This cutting edge project requires developers to build the environment for the data scientists on top of a Big Data platform using Scala and other functional languages to then be able to make use of the data, and make business decisions off the back of that information and the patterns that are evident. The developers are working with the Data Scientists to define the approaches for supporting specific Analytics requirements while doing all the coding in a highly scale-able way.

The programming is done in Scala but the language isn’t too important – most of the developers pick up new languages all of the time.  How deep and quickly someone can code and come to a solution is what we are looking for – so this is a chance for a programmer with a strong functional background in any language to make the jump!

You will get valuable experience with technology such used is Map Reduce, Cassandra, Scoobi, Hive, Hadoop - any exposure to these skills is obviously good but we are not expecting any as it's still relatively new to Australia commercially…

Do you have experience in preparing an algorithmic problem and coding a solution? Data transformation, transversal algorithms, developing high and low level languages in a functional language? If so, then this is the challenge for you!

If you would like to find out more – please contact me on or call 02 8705 8509
