Backend Engineer (Scala)

Backend Engineer (Scala)

We are building the best possible data annotation platform for teams creating autonomous systems. Come help us make sure it scales to massive volumes!

We need an experienced backend engineer to help us handle the massive volumes of data we are processing. Annotell prides itself on an ability to produce large quantities of high-quality training data. For this to be possible we need a highly scalable and robust backend, and we are looking for someone who can drive our work with data engineering and scalability.

We use modern tools and our backend is written in Scala with sprinkles of Python, and the complete solution is delivered using Kubernetes on Google Cloud. We offer a chance to work with the latest technology while being focused on creating simple and reliable solutions. On our todo list right now is expanding our use of queue- based message passing, make better use of Akka Actors and Akka Streams, ensure our ability to use spot-instances in production and reduce latency on provisioning large amounts of data globally. But expect the list to grow and evolve fast.

We expect you to be able to be able to go all the way from high-level architecture design down to efficient code. A strong understanding of Scala is a bonus, but solid experience from building scalable, distributed systems is more important.

We expect you to be able to work independently and take initiative. You will be a great fit if you are inspired by building a company, working in a growth environment and you are eager to learn. Get in touch and we'll talk more!
