This is us in a nutshell:
- We are singularly focused on providing all the tools and building blocks our customers need to deliver outstanding online shopping experiences and innovation across all digital touchpoints.
- In 2013 we introduced a modular, API-first cloud-native commerce platform, pioneering the headless commerce space and enabling us to build the foundation to change our whole industry for the better and re-invent ecommerce.
- Our international expansion has reached Europe, the US and Asia Pacific. In September 2021, we announced our $140m series C funding round led by global tech investor Accel, alongside existing investors Insight Partners and REWE Group, which has accelerated our global growth and elevated us to unicorn status. We are now valued at $1.9bn, named a Leader in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Digital Commerce for the second year in a row.
Would you like to work with enthusiastic and experienced Software Engineers in a remote, agile and international environment with a modern, functional programming first tech-stack? Are you thrilled by getting your hands on one of the most innovative eCommerce platforms the world has seen? Your heart beats Scala, you love solving complex problems? On top of that you work with passion, love clean code and like to understand the big picture? Sounds like commercetools is the perfect match! Modern eCommerce solutions, built for high availability!
We are hiring a (Senior) Scala Engineer to join our Customers Team. You’ll be working on a very technical product as we build the APIs at the core of eCommerce. Your team is responsible for the Customers APIs and you will help our customers to provide the best shopping experience for their customers.
You will work in a distributed, highly motivated, cross-functional and skilled team to solve complex business requirements in a high traffic, multi tenant and multi cloud environment. Our team is built on mutual trust. Working hours can be flexible, we trust each other to do the best work we can.
Together we design, implement, improve and maintain scalable services from database over CI to API, relying on MongoDB and Elasticsearch while using modern libraries like Cats, Circe, Monix and Sangria to write clean and testable code. Quality is very important to us, we test software components regarding usability, functionality and performance, relying on frameworks like Gatling and Cornichon.
If you like having a direct impact on the topics the team works on next, you are at the right place. Through closely collaborating with our product manager and giving feedback early – we are confident on working on the right thing and we own it. This includes taking part in on-call rotation (with the worldwide distributed team) for production systems.
You’ll have plenty of opportunities to work towards your career goals, we spend a tech-day every other week on personal growth and learning, hold weekly lightning talks and do online courses together.
What you need to succeed:
We are searching for individuals who are curious about technology, diligent, kind and eager to learn and grow. Trust is at the core of our values and we trust you to do well together with us.
Searching for a (Senior) Scala Engineer we’d expect you to solve complex problems and help the whole team to progress through mentoring and sharing your knowledge.
We expect you’d need at least two years of experience working with Scala, though your proven track record of past work is more important to us. Functional programming, REST APIs, scalable architectures (sharding, replication, load balancing, failovers) and the JVM in general should be very familiar topics for you.
Knowledge of MongoDB, Elasticsearch, Amazon SQS, Google Pub/Sub, CircleCI, Kubernetes and libraries like Cats is a big plus. There is also the option to work fullstack, if you know some React, that's another bonus point.
We believe in radical candor and open, honest and direct feedback. Great ideas can come from anybody and we love strong opinions loosely held. You should be comfortable to work with video calls and excel in sharing ideas through written communication as you will be working in a remote first team.
Positivity. Negativity is the enemy of progress.
Trust & Transparency. Promote direct and continuous feedback.
Learning. Be proud if you’ve failed at something. Think big, start small, learn fast!
