Clojure Engineer [Remote]

Our team of Engineers are forward-thinking, world-class and not afraid of cutting-edge technology. They are building and scaling systems that drive our applications and continuously improve our engineering practices. From adopting new frameworks and languages like React and Elixir to implementing machine learning in voice search engines are just some examples of the innovative technology that we use.

The team is looking for a Clojure Software Engineer-(Remote Contract Gig) who is excited at the prospect of working on our portfolio of brands. We are proud to innovate and create new consumer experiences backed by reliable, performant code. We are diverse in the technologies we use, ranging from Clojure, Elixir, Ruby, and JavaScript, and are investing heavily in React / Redux and the BFF pattern. We are in the process of completing our move to continuous deployment, we leverage micro-services, and invest heavily in creating components that are reusable and provide a framework for our portfolio of sites.

Does this resonate with you? If so, we want to talk with you so check it out:

A Day in the Life

  • Writing code as a team is more effective than solo hero tactics
  • No, not every Clojure service needs core.async
  • Every time you touch existing code, you leave it a little better than you found it
  • You've read _Release It!_ and you're still developing services
  • You use Clojure alphas/betas in your `:dev` profile but in production, you run the latest stable
  • You don't refactor code that doesn't have tests
  • Learning to read code is at least as important as learning to write it
  • You usually pass map, filter, and other sequence functions just one argument, these days
  • You know the value of everything and... the cost of everything, too
  • You seek out feedback on your work
  • You give others constructive feedback
  • macros < functions < data < code you shouldn't have written in the first place

What We Need from You

  • You are a pragmatic Software Engineer who is sold on functional programming and enjoys Clojure, but you’ve also used it and the JVM in anger.
  • You’re excited to build backend services of all types, geek our on mentoring and alerting for your apps.
  • You enjoy contributing to open source.
  • If you don’t get to use Clojure Script to build a web UI, you’re going to be perfectly happy, but hey, an occasional internal dashboard might be nice.
  • You are looking for an opportunity to work remotely but stay connected to your team.
