Role overview

Background

New fintech company based in London ☕ using Clojure and Clojurescript to create tools for financial analysts.

We are developing AI-based automation tools 🔧 to provide the equivalent of an assistant researcher at every analysts desktop. We are growing the number of developers in London, and are looking for people with strong functional programming skills, especially Clojure. 👌

The Candidate

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
  • C#/.Net
  • Javascript
  • HTML5
  • Python
  • Natural Language Processing

  • Natural Language Generation
  • Machine Learning

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, in addition to the appropriate skills, the successful candidate will have:

  • Minimum 5 years commercial software development
  • Commercial experience of functional programming
  • Familiarity with Scrum 🏉
  • Interest in NLP and ML
