So you know that experienced Scala devs won't like your offers, but you aren't interested in the less experienced devs who apply.

What are you looking for, exactly? As an "inexperienced" Scala dev, I'm genuinely interested.

Scala has a steep learning curve, so we're looking for devs having at least one or two real production projects (that aren't using spark) on their belt. It turns out to be quite a challenge to find someone who have experience in the ecosystem and the language, AND who _like_ working with it.

Plenty of developers have significant Scala experience and like working with it, but the demand greatly outstrips the supply - if you look at a chart of average salary by language Scala is a huge outlier.

I would totally be interested in hearing more about this. My email is jonnynova00 at gmail
