You are a Scala Developer that has spent years using agile and lean practices to deliver world class software. You are an Agile creature who never stops thinking about how to improve yourself and your team.

When hardware fails, your applications keep going because they are fault tolerant. When the company grows, your applications scale right alongside. Customers enjoy using your applications, because they are reactive and always perform well.

You understand that building the ‘right thing’ is as important as building the ‘thing right’, and have leveraged test-driven techniques to achieve both. You believe that software quality is the responsibility of the whole team, regardless of job titles.

You understand and embrace the philosophy of Continuous Delivery. You have no interest in throwing your work ‘over the wall’ to anybody. Instead, you passionately believe in an agile, DevOps-centric team that builds, tests, releases and operates its own applications.
