Job Description


About The Role


We're hiring Clojure developers to support our back end data processing pipelines, as well as ClojureScript web apps. Our current tech stack includes:


  • Integrant-based server side apps in Clojure
  • Parsing and validation of API outputs with Spec
  • Jackdaw for stream processing on Kafka
  • ClojureScript front-ends with re-frame
  • Postgres databases with hundreds of millions of interesting events

We're looking for people to join teams working on any or all aspects of this stack, as well as more senior engineers who are able to:

  • Mentor junior team members
  • Demonstrate and evangelise best practices in Clojure and beyond
  • Cross-train programmers with JavaScript & React experience
  • Keep an eye on new ideas and libraries in the Clojure ecosystem


Our teams also work in JavaScript and Node.js, Python for machine learning, and SQL and R for ad-hoc analysis, so knowledge or at least tolerance of those technologies would be a plus.
