We’re looking for a passionate Scala engineer who would help us tackle some of our most important challenges!

Role overview

We’re looking for a Senior Scala Engineer to join us here at GWI. Not just any Senior Scala Engineer though. Someone ambitious and genuine, who works best in the midst of a collaborative and forward-thinking team. That’s because as a GWIer you’ll be immersed in the fast-moving world of data tech. We think big to make an impact, we zero in on what matters, we’re not afraid to be real and we always show respect. Those values are what got us where we are today, and they’re a big part of what we’re looking for in you.


About The Job


The Pollpass team is responsible for building our very own, cutting edge scripting and survey creation tools so that our researchers can build the questionnaires answered by millions of users every day.


The team works flexible hours and is fully remote, not COVID remote :) We value team players that can also work autonomously and act as subject matter experts about parts of our system.


Key roles and responsibilities:


  • Working within a multinational team of engineers and product managers using Scala.
  • Lead collaboration with other teams to integrate projects into a cohesive overall system.
  • Ideate, brainstorm and implement new application components and services.
  • Participating in tech sessions, planning meetings and retrospectives. We use Scrum but are not dogmatic about it.
  • Engaging on the Dev/Ops operations and on the QA of the product.


About You


First things first, as a disruptor in the global market research industry, we haven’t come this far without entrepreneurial spirit and a get-up-and-go attitude. So if you think we’ll see that in you, then you’re already halfway there. Here’s the rest of what we’d like you to bring to the table.


Technical


We’re looking for a passionate Scala engineer who would help us tackle some of our most important challenges! The ideal candidate will have the following qualities:


  • Strong knowledge of Scala.
  • Comfortable in both OO & FP but not dogmatic for either.
  • Knowledge of Akka & ecosystem (Typed, Streams, gRPC, HTTP)
  • Experience with relational databases (eg. PostgreSQL)
  • Familiarity with NoSQL databases like Cassandra / Scylla, Druid, ElasticSearch etc.
  • Good understanding of distributed system concepts and trade-offs.


Nice to have:


  • Familiarity with Typelevel Cats library
  • Experience with K8s, Helm and Terraform.
  • Experience with GCP services, eg. BigQuery, PubSub

Competencies:

  • Team player that can also work independently
  • Excellent command of written and spoken English


About The Benefits


Great benefits make a big difference. Not just to employees, but to the whole vibe of a business. That’s why when you work for us, you’ll enjoy a full spectrum of generous perks, rewards and office benefits - all in line with Covid-19 guidelines of course.


  • Competitive salary and performance-based bonus
  • Generous training budget, including a fully paid international conference each year
  • 25 days holiday and Christmas office closure days on top
  • Enhanced primary caregiver and co-caregiver’s benefits
  • Flexitime and a great work-life balance
  • Private health insurance plan
  • Referral bonus scheme
  • Mobile phone contract
  • Early finishes on Fridays
  • A well-stocked fridge and plenty of snacks (some healthy, some not so healthy)
  • Commit a working day to charity each year
  • Social activities and team outings


About Us


GWI was founded with the knowledge that understanding your audience is really important for business. When you know who you’re speaking to and why, you can create content and campaigns that stand out to the people that matter.


Through our global online survey, we gather data on the behaviour and perceptions of consumers across the world. This provides businesses with deep, actionable insights on their audience, revealed from data they trust.


It’s been going well, too. Since launching in 2009, we’ve become one of the UK’s fastest growing target audience companies. We’re not about to stop growing any time soon. As a business, we’re on a mission to re-engineer data-driven marketing, and we’re on the lookout for talented people to join us.


About Diversity And Inclusion


Imagine if our data came from just one kind of person. We’d get a very nuanced view of the world. And we definitely wouldn’t have got off the ground as a business.


We’re so lucky to live in a society where differences are celebrated – so we’d expect nothing else from our teams. In fact, the GWI office is as diverse as our global data, it’s really important to us that it stays that way. That means whatever your race, religion, sexual orientation or gender, this is a place to feel at home, express yourself freely and make your mark.

  • Prague, Czech Republic

We’re the target audience company that does things a bit differently. Our job is to cut through the noise and give you facts you can trust. Our flagship study represents more than 2 billion people around the world, and it tells you how consumers are changing; their actions, ideals, perceptions, feelings... (you get the gist). The world’s largest (and smallest) brands, marketing agencies and media organizations rely on us every day to help them stand out. Working with the likes of Twitter, Google, Spotify, WPP, IPG and Omnicom Group, we help them find really original and in-depth insights through our one-of-a-kind platform. And if that doesn’t float your boat, we’ve got a whole bunch of custom services to let you do more tailored research across 48 countries – asking whoever you want, whatever you want. We’re growing fast, and we’re always on the lookout for out-of-the-box thinkers to help us do more great things.
