What to look for in a Scala developer
It can be incredibly difficult to find a good Scala engineer. The language has a more complicated syntax than Java or C#, resulting in a particularly steep learning curve that can put many developers off. Our Scala interview questions and tests go a long way to helping you in that regard. However, it will be very helpful if you know what to look out for.
Scala is a general-purpose programming language providing support for functional programming. It is a pure object oriented language that is similar to Java. It is a statically typed language.
The language is mainly used in the backend development of concurrent Scala applications. The key advantages of Scala over other languages are that it is much less error-prone and can perform more kinds of tasks than languages with more basic type systems. While other languages only work with one or two programming styles, Scala works with all three- functional, object-oriented, and imperative programming. This means that a developer working only with Scala can perform more types of tasks without having to switch to a different programming environment.
Scala uses the same runtime environment as Java, meaning a developer can use Scala libraries for Java applications and Java libraries for Scala applications. This gives Scala experts a huge advantage over other developers because they can access the incredibly large and diverse Java ecosystem.
To find a good Scala engineer you are really looking for the elite. Due to its complexity, Scala developers often possess official certificates to prove their aptitude in the language.
Otherwise, you can expect they’ll know about pattern matching, as Scala has a built-in general pattern-matching mechanism. They should also possess knowledge of case classes, which are unique to Scala.
Due to Scala‘s compatibility with the Java libraries, your candidate should be familiar with the Java open source libraries and be able to tell you which ones they prefer to use. They should also be able to show commercial experience they have gained within the past 2 years and be able to describe the technologies in which they have a functional and working knowledge.
