Software Engineer - Java/Scala (Apps Foundation)

About the team:

Were Apps Foundation team of motivated professionals who turn most challenging tasks into reality.

We‘re the ones who focus on technological excellence in a full development cycle.

  • Technical team (.NET and Scala engineers, frontend engineers, manual and automation QA engineers)
  • Business team (Product manager)

Our projects are a core part of the company and highly used by other teams and services.

About the project:

Our components are written 50/50 on Scala and .NET. On frontend – mostly React and Angular. We are moving towards microservices architecture (all new development as microservices, splitting monoliths). In our environment we are highly dependent on API (REST, GQL, Swagger as an API documentation format).

When using Scala, we extend it with libraries as cats, scalaz and shapeless and build it with sbt. Akka is our core framework, enabling a fully asynchronous message processing in the app. Our Scala REST APIs are built with Akka HTTP and documented with Swagger.

MongoDB, MSSQL, ElasticSearch and PostgreSQL are key data storages along with Apache Kafka for data processing and RabbitMQ for messaging.  DevOps and Continuous Integration are our standard way of running software and we really do love it. We automate all deployment and configuration tasks with tools like Puppet, Ansible and PowerShell. We are heavily addicted to monitoring our services with Graphite / Graphana and all our logging is done via ElasticStack. All newly developed services are utilizing container technologies (Docker, k8s and etc).
