Job Description
  • Pollfish lives on the Cloud, and is deployed several times a day using Kubernetes. A reactive microservice architecture underpins the entire platform. The core application is written in Play (Scala), while the vast majority of the supporting services are using the proven Twitter stack, Finatra/Finagle. The front end is written in React/Redux.
    Data is constantly on the move at Pollfish. From Apache Kafka, to Postgres, to Apache Druid and Cassandra, to the data-lake. Distributed programming based on Apache Spark, and Apache Flink is leveraged to handle efficiently the immense amounts of data that Pollfish has to process daily. Machine Learning and Artificial intelligence models allow Pollfish to tackle fraud, and improve data quality.
    Innovation and technical excellence always need to go hand in hand with software quality and the necessary processes to ensure it. Hence, at Pollfish we always try to write testable code and deliver tests together with every piece of software that we write. We want to empower this dimension of our work and take it to the next level.
  • To succeed in this mission, you need to have programming experience in one of the popular ecosystems (e.g. that of Java or Python or Scala) and a test engineer’s mindset. You need to be knowledgeable about HTTP APIs and classic web application testing using proven tools like Selenium. Performance testing and tools like Gatling or JMeter should be at least familiar to you, while fresh approaches to test automation, with regards to micro-services, distributed systems, diverse data stores and containers are highly appreciated. CI/CD should also ring a bell (or two).
    You will not be alone in all this; a friendly and highly skilled team of engineers and product owners will be there to assist and help making this happen. So, if this sounds like a thing you want to be part of, and grow it, while at the same time growing yourself, then we have a position for you.
