Junior Functional Programming Developer

Voted one of the UK’s 100 most exciting , fast-growth companies and winner of ‘UK Business of the Year’ at the British Chamber of Commerce Awards, AnyJunk is reinventing bulky waste clearance with technology.  The magic of AnyJunk is that, rather than running our own fleet, we use technology to partner with local waste removal businesses with overlapping coverage who undertake collections on our behalf. Our digital platform matches jobs to the nearest collection team with spare capacity and then connects to them via an App as they undertake the work. This model cuts fuel miles and speed of response, which means we can provide a lower cost , greener , faster, and more reliable and scalable service than ever before. And, rather than adding trucks and congestion to the roads, we’re helping local businesses grow.

Over the last two years, we have cleanly rebuilt our technology platform from scratch, with a team highly proficient in pure functional programming, led by a PhD in theoretical computer science (and category theory in particular). The back-end is written in Scala + Cats and the front-end (web and apps) in React JS/React Native and Redux. More details on our tech blog (The posts are the result of time invested in programming research while developing, which is fundamental to our culture).

We are now growing our team to expand the application of our platform beyond waste clearance. In particular, we are looking to invest in the training of a junior developer in both Scala and React/Redux to become a crucial member of our team. This is a unique opportunity for you to learn some of the hottest programming skills in the market.

As a junior developer, all we expect is that you:
● have talent, curiosity, and style
● have an interest in types and functional programming
● appreciate test automation
● enjoy contributing to product and technical discussions

Experience with React Native or app development is a bonus.

Overseas Candidates – should you need a visa , we do hold a sponsor licence and have already successfully sponsored Tier 2 candidates.

Our funky office is in Putney, London. Projects are managed in weekly sprints, using JIRA for tickets and GitHub for code repository, with detailed peer code reviews.

Competitive salary.
