NashTech's Scalajobz Awarded at Typesafe Developer Contest


Scalajobz a community initiative by NashTech was recently awarded at the Typesafe Developer Contest for securing the third position.

Typesafe Developer Contest is an idea of Martin Odersky’s which is designed to solicit submissions of sample applications that can be used to demonstrate the power and functionality of the Typesafe Stack. 

Scalajobz is a community-driven job portal specifically focussed on the Scala ecosystem. It allows employment opportunities to be listed on the site with details so that job seekers can search and apply for the relevant jobs. It also allows job seekers to enroll in email alerts which would allow them to get a daily email for new jobs which match their search criteria. External systems can fetch all job details and search for specific jobs using the REST API. community driven job portal for Scala jobs. 

Their spotlight from Typesafe Developer Contest is due to their commitment and hard work. Scalajobz has a well-written code and attractive UI. The high rankings on Lightbend’s website is a terrific milestone for NashTech, and is especially encouraging going forward as they continue to work on new projects and take our partners to new heights! 

NashTech is thankful to all the judges Martin, Jonas Bonér, Viktor Klang, Peter Hausel, Josh Suereth, Rod Johnson and the people who are connected with Scalajobz in any way.
