Luna is looking for a senior Scala software engineer to take charge of the design, development, and evolution of the new SaaS offering for Luna, a project said by Singularity University to have the potential to change the lives of one-billion people. If you bring strong technical skills and have a passion for collaboration, this role could be for you.

As a senior Scala engineer, you'll be leading the effort to design and develop our new SaaS offering, providing a web-based version of Luna to our clients.

  • Working closely with the internal teams to design a secure and scalable SaaS architecture.

  • Developing a SaaS solution based upon that design with robust tooling and reliability, as well as inbuilt support for collaboration.

  • Contributing to the evolution of this vibrant open-source project by bringing a new component to its ecosystem and product offering.
