We need someone immediately to begin work on an MVP that will facilitate potentially 1M+ transactions daily. The app will involve a web and mobile front-end and a back-end built using Java/Scala, the Play framework and MongoDB (though we are open to recommendations for using other datastores such as Redis and Cassandra). We are looking for experts with proven systems admin and infrastructure track records handling provisioning servers and setting up the app to scale seamlessly. This initial MVP will need to be built out in 3-4 weeks, and there will likely be ongoing work going forward if you build this successfully. We are looking to move very quickly and this project will be quite rewarding for the right candidates.
Experience with Heroku, Docker and AWS (spinning EC2 boxes, setting up RDBMS, web server, app server, db server, etc.) is looked upon favorably.
Look forward to getting in touch with applicants and getting started shortly!
