Want to develop in Scala at your day job?
Are you tired of having to hide Scala code at work? Sick of trying to sneak it in for non-production tasks? Look forward to the end of the day so you can finally fire up the Scala repl?
Whether you are an expert or need a little mentoring, Scala can be your primary professional language at Bizo! We have multiple production systems running at scale that are written in Scala and seasoned programmers with years of experience developing with Scala.
A talk from Scala Days on Scala at Bizo (slightly dated):

Some specific posts on our dev culture:
The Ideal Candidate
Flexible mind : We need to do a lot with a small team, so it's important to use the right tools for the right job and be willing to change down the line if we find a more efficient solution. We also believe in "strong opinions, weakly held," being humble, accepting and giving feedback.
Self-driven : developers are given a large amount of autonomy in how they work, who then work with, when they work, and are responsible for a large parts of driving project functionality and seeing them through to completion.
Entrepreneurial : developers are given complete ownership over their projects from design through implementation, testing, deployment and production maintenance.
Communicative : we believe in teamwork and sharing experience : design reviews, code reviews, weekly lunch and learns.
Quality-focused : Quality code helps a small team do more. Increasing communication through code readability, decreasing the cost of maintenance, and ensuring we don't work weekends.
Gets stuff done!
