Scala Developer

At TomTom…
You’ll move the world forward. Every day, we create the most innovative mapping and location technologies to shape tomorrow’s mobility for the better.

We are proud to be one team of more than 5,000 unique, curious, passionate problem-solvers spread across the world. We bring out the best in each other. And together, we help the automotive industry, businesses, developers, drivers, citizens, and cities move towards a safe, autonomous world that is free of congestion and emissions.

What you’ll do

  • Develop distributed systems that are secure, scalable and highly available
  • Develop automated tests (no QAs in the team)
  • Treat infrastructure as code, think AWS CloudFormation (Azure Resource Manager would be a plus)
  • Own the production environment: you wrote it, you deploy it, you'll maintain it.
  • Work along side expert engineers, you will learn from the best.

What you’ll need

  • Must have Scala + Akka along with AWS background and NoSQL (Riak) knowledge.
  • Developing the code and working closely with other departments where needed (think Agile/XP/Scrum!).
  • Helping to plan sprints and being involved in the refinement of backlogs: you'll be not only coding but defining the future architecture of the system.
  • Pluses: Java, Azure, Kubernetes would be nice-to-have and would allow you to jump between systems in our team (read below).
Meet your team

We have two projects for you: NavSync & NavAssist. This offer is focused on the former but you would be welcome to participate of the latter if you wish to.

NavSync is a personal data service that is used by millions of users from TomTom and automotive customers’ uses. It allows users to seamlessly synchronize their data between their mobile apps and cars (via dashboard or personal navigation devices). NavSync uses conflict-free data types (CRDT) to ensure that there is no conflict in synchronized data. We use technologies like Riak, a NoSQL key-value database inspired by Dynamo paper, RabbitMQ, Redis and Scala/Akka.

NavAssist is the new service to provide personal predictions to our users, based on their personal data and their whereabouts. Both NavSync and NavAssist are independent services that work together to offer a personalized navigation experience to our customers.

While each of us focuses on one of the aforementioned services, we all contribute to both of them. We are a DevOps team with a flat hierarchy that each member has right to deploy to production and responsible for the health of the service. We have right to choose the technologies and design the service architecture on our own. ​

Achieve more
