  • familiar with Akka & ecosystem (Typed, Streams, gRPC, HTTP)

  • Excellent command of written and spoken English


Nice to have:

  • Experience with K8s, Helm and Terraform.
  • Experience with GCP services, eg. BigQuery, PubSub
  • Familiarity with NoSQL databases like Cassandra / Scylla, Druid, ElasticSearch etc.
  • Understanding of distributed system concepts and trade-offs. 
  • Knowledge of Scala.js and/or Typescript
  • 250+
