Job Description

Scala Developer – Distributed Web Application Services

SolutionSet was formed as an answer to what was missing in the market: a firm that was technical enough to implement complex software systems, but creative enough to make the systems beautiful and easy to use. We are a unique service provider that combines user-centered creative and leading-edge technology to deliver the next new thinking in web development, digital marketing, and brand experience.   We have 400 people in six offices across North America, working together to change consumer behavior and drive transactions for our clients.

SolutionSet Digital consistently delivers high performance cutting edge web applications to Fortune 500 clients.  We are heavily geared to execution and delivery.  Our processes and methodologies are time tested and the quality of output very high.  Our teams are some of the very best in their fields and able to consistently deliver on technically and operationally complex projects with relative ease.

A Scala developer at SolutionSet tends to have come from the Java world and have a more traditional computer science background.  This is not a hard requirement and demonstrated skills are more important.  The work we do here in Scala is in the creation of software for the purposes of business analytics, big data, and distributed computing.  We work with Scala, Akka, Lift, SBT, MongoDB, Riak, Redis, and a variety of other related tools.
