    Lead Software Engineer

    Technology / Product Management
    Limerick City, Limerick, Ireland

    Small, autonomous teams. Decentralized decision-making. Scala. NoSQL. Team ownership of end-to-end quality. Support for open source technologies. A friction-free production environment. Distributed systems. Continuous delivery. Simplicity. Automation. These are some of the key ingredients of Bakers Authority’s robust technology culture. If this all sounds good to you, then keep reading!

    The Opportunity

    As a Bakers Authority Software Engineer, your main responsibility is to write concise, clear, flexible code. You’ll use the Typesafe platform (Scala/Play Framework/Akka), AWS, Docker, Jenkins, MongoDB, Lucene/Solr, and other great technologies to develop high-quality software. You’ll be encouraged to take risks and challenge yourself in new ways–from developing your own open-source projects to submitting proposals to prestigious tech conferences.

    Desired Technical Skills:

      Source code management skills (Git)
    • Familiarity with SQL and relational databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle) and NoSQL databases (MongoDB, DynamoDB)
    • Fluency in discussing web standards (HTTP, JSON) and RESTful APIs
    • Experience using Linux/Unix, CentOS, Ubuntu, and Mac OS
    • Familiarity with deployment and continuous integration technologies, and container technologies such as Docker.

    Since Bakers Authority’s founding in 2007, we’ve shifted from a monolithic Rails app to a system of hundreds of small services built in Scala. This evolution has enabled our team to achieve much faster release cycles than ever before—decreasing from days to minutes. Managing such a large number of services produces unique challenges. So does our flash-sales business model: The massive traffic spike we experience every day when we release the day’s new sales at noon is similar to a DDoS attack. And the dynamic nature of our operations–from launching new personalization initiatives to fine-tuning our staging and production environments–means that there’s always something new to learn.  

    Our Culture

    We’re very passionate about preserving our culture of trust and autonomy. Anyone on our team can publish to our Tech Blog, give a presentation, develop an open source project, attend or speak at a conference, spend funds in the team budget, organize a meetup, or invite someone interesting over to our office for coffee and a chat. We embrace our creativity and are open to embracing yours.

    During the interview process we hope to learn something from you. What’s your potential? What can you bring that no one else can? What open source projects can you share with us?

    We can’t wait to hear from you!
