The ability for customers to find what they want quickly is vital in the 21st century. Companies have become trillion dollar giants by simply having top tier search functions. Any company at the top and wanting to stay at the top must have infrastructure in place to make sure that the consumers ability to locate is unhindered and is as fast as humanly possible. My client employs an entire team to augment this process.

They are now looking for a German speaking Scala developer to join that technological team. The role is to aid the company in maximising the efficiency of its search engine algorithms and to therefore augment the whole search time, process and overall efficiency.  They are looking for a determined, resilient, creative and unorthodox developer with a penchant for thinking out of the box to start ground running with the team. You will be:

Project responsibilities

-Working alongside the development team to improve the recursive algorithms to reduce search timings and to produce more refined and accurate results which reflect the relevancy of a consumer search.

-Create functional algorithms which placate more advanced searching functions such as multiple keyword searches, Boolean searches and locational searches.

-Developing new solutions in order to facilitate more efficient searches in the future by ingesting data from multiple data sources.

Project requirements

-Long term scala experience as well as experience as a whole with functional programming paradigms. Excellent use of algorithms and good understanding of mathematical functions and principles of recursive algorithms to create efficient iterations.

-Knowledge of Solr and ElasticSearch in order to facilitate search querying and expanding the search diversity and functionality.

-Knowledge of Akka is preferred but not mandatory.

 -Being able to speak German is a big bonus.

Project Details

-The role is a contract role for around 2 years, done through 6 month rolling contracts.

-The role is entirely remote. The company is based in Germany.

-The rate is around 600-700 euros per day.
