Clojure engineer
Nedap Staffing Solutions | Anywhere || Groenlo, Netherlands
Moving markets with technology that matters
Posted Oct 10, 2017

Who we are

Nedap is a Dutch company, based in Groenlo, with over 700 employees, but it feels small. We work in small groups, each with its own culture and vibe, so working at Nedap feels a bit like working in a small company, but with big resources. The best of both worlds.

Nedap Staffing Solutions develops products for the temporary staffing sector. Our products are built to remove the boring administrative part of the job.

We're a group of 20 people, commercial people and engineers that work together. We determine our product goals ourselves, including when and how to achieve them.

Within the group Staffing Solutions, we've been searching for a more sustainable method of developing software. Although we've been building our software based on the Ruby on Rails stack for quite some time now, we are experiencing certain disadvantages to using frameworks that focus on 'ease of use'. As a consequence, we're developing 3 new services in Clojure and have recently put the first service in production.

We would like to add an experienced Clojure developer to our (remote) team to spar with and to speed up development.

What we're looking for

  • You have a strong sense of ownership and responsibility
  • You enjoy diversity and differences of opinion, and engaging in discussions
  • You have worked with Clojure, ClojureScript, or other functional programming languages
  • You have worked with distributed systems and have dealt with problems related to concurrency, performance and fault tolerance

What You'll Do

You'll be part of a small team with a dual focus - building full stack features for a new application and internal tooling that supports and accelerates our engineering output. You'll determine what to build and when to build it.

Day to Day:

  • Whiteboard architecture with other engineers
  • Get enough time for yourself to actually get stuff done
  • Determine root causes of bugs and fix problems that arise in production
  • Figure out what needs to be done with the team to further improve our solutions
