Clojure developer
Ardoq | flexible remote in/around Oslo. Visa sponsorship is possible
Posted May 5, 2021

Ardoq is a fast-growing technology company in Norway with offices in London, New York, and Copenhagen. Our Graph platform enables our customers to map dependencies across strategic objectives, projects, applications, processes, and people, allowing them to assess the impact of change and make better and faster decisions.

Our company is backed by a solid commitment from investors and a majority of our employees are also shareholders. We're growing rapidly, and are looking for candidates to help scale our engineering team.

Ardoq's engineering team is a highly skilled group of people who like solving challenging problems, value feedback, continuous delivery, and automation of repetitive tasks. We maintain a high iteration speed through a focus on code quality and incremental change, not artificial deadlines. We believe working closely together and supporting each other is important if we are to achieve a common goal.

Who we're looking for

We're looking for caring, driven, and quality-focused engineers who can collaborate across the organization. You should have a learning and sharing mindset. That is, wanting to learn new things and being open and sharing your knowledge. As the company develops we implement our lessons learned and adapt to change. You should be proactive and take ownership.

We believe in finding people with the right qualities and skills rather than finding a person with the right degree. A BS/MS degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or related subject is always good but it's not a prerequisite.

You should have a good knowledge of web technologies and an interest in working with a functional language, as Clojure is our primary back-end language.

We think it's a plus if you consider yourself a full stack developer and don't mind getting your hands dirty. Since JavaScript/TypeScript and Clojure are quite different, we don't expect you to be an expert in both, but it is good to have an understanding of the other side.


You'll be an integral part of the engineering team. This means both working with greenfield feature development, finding bugs, and focusing on continuous quality improvement. There's also the possibility of helping on cloud infrastructure, automation, and developer tooling depending on your personal interests.

Our best work is done in an environment of mutual trust and support. We share knowledge and value diversity. We are proactive and volunteer our best effort every day. If we see a problem, we fix a problem.

What we can offer you

Ardoq's values are Bold, Caring and Driven. Living by these values is part of what makes Ardoq a great place to work. We make bold decisions that push the product, ourselves and our customers forward. We voice our opinions, have difficult conversations, disagree, and learn. We take care of both our colleagues and our customers and empathize with the challenges they face every day.

We also offer many benefits including investment opportunities for employees and generous parental leave schemes.

Although we have offices in Oslo, London, New York, and Copenhagen, we embrace remote work and flexible schedules.

If you identify with this, we can offer you a really great place to work.

Work language

English & Clojure. Although 44% of us are based at the Oslo headquarters, we are an international team representing many countries and languages.
