Backend Scala Engineer

SeamlessDocs specializes in digitizing and automating business and government forms and PDFs. The platform is like Google Docs for PDFs. It allows anyone to easily convert any PDF into a fillable, mobile friendly cloud version that can be completed and eSigned from any device. Then it builds a database in real time of the info collected and has workflow and process automation tools.

Due to its government focus, SeamlessDocs has been able to continue to differentiate itself as THE standard in government forms as well as through its government sales funnel expertise. This allows them to avoid repetitive admin tasks and data entry; cutting costs and increasing efficiency.

SeamlessDocs has built its own proprietary eSignature technology as well as field detection tools to automatically detect fields on any PDF.

It also includes a free marketplace of forms that can be seamlessly exchanged, completed and signed online (and drive traffic to the site).

The Role

Our ideal candidate has strong experience with Scala development and writing stable, scalable backend services. Bonus points for experience with additional backend languages such as OCaml, Haskell, Go, C++ (with preference towards functional programming languages). Candidate should also have experience leading a team of engineers.

You are actively engaged in scala / software development communities, Open Source projects or projects of your own; where coding in collaboration with other engineers is a necessity. The principles of Agile development, coding standards, unit testing, documentation and communication are second nature. You’ll be successful at SeamlessDocs if you are able to look at existing code, which isn’t always pretty, and say – I love a challenge and I know how to turn that into something beautiful. You follow design patterns that lead others to more elegant solutions.
