We are growing the number of developers in London, and are looking for people with strong functional programming skills, especially Clojure. The ideal candidate will have been using Clojure commercially, although we will consider others with less Clojure experience, if you have other strong functional programming skills, and skills relevant to our wider technology stack and domain of interest.

Experience of any of the following would be an asset::

  • Clojure
  • ClojureScript

The Job

We are looking to hire a Senior Developer to work in our London office, and work within a small team of engineers, which includes some remote team-members. Our aim is to create a vibrant, productive working environment. We apply agile principles to our product development, and have adopted Scrum, Continuous Deployment and AWS-based Devops, with a view to delivering user-centric software which is iterated quickly to provide continuously increasing value to our customers.

The work is highly collaborative in nature, so the environment requires a high level of interpersonal trust and confident communication between team members.

While the core product is a web-based system written in Clojure, you will be exposed to advanced natural language processing and machine learning techniques.

The ideal candidate, will be deployment focused, with a high degree of curiosity, and with the ability to solve challenging problems and ask thoughtful questions, while designing and delivering simple and elegant solutions using functional programming.

You must be able to envision a variety of solutions and to clearly articulate them to colleagues, including non-technical stakeholders, and explain the trade-offs involved in choosing between options.

You must love working with others and sharing knowledge, to get the best result for the end-user and ultimately for the business.

Requirements

Ideally, the successful candidate will have:

  • At least five years experience of delivering software in a commercial environment
  • Demonstrable commercial experience of functional programming
  • Familiarity with Scrum
  • Interest in natural language processing and machine learning

Location

We are located in the City of London, where many of our target customers are based. This is also adjacent to Shoreditch and Silicon Roundabout, the home of Google's Campus London and Microsoft Reactor, which make it a vibrant area, full of like-minded developers and entrepreneurs.
