Linux systems engineer with Common Lisp experience, m-creations, Mainz, Germany

Full time position for German speaking Linux admin with Docker and
Common Lisp experience near Frankfurt, Germany

We are a small German software shop based in Mainz, Germany, founded in
2000. We create custom software solutions for mid-size to big companies
in finance/payment, health care, and media research.

For some of our customers, we also cover operational aspects of the
software lifecycle by creating and running Docker containers in
development, test, and production environments on clusters of servers
running Apache Mesos.

Missing pieces of infrastructure are written in Common Lisp (CL) and
interact with existing software components of the cluster (DNS, load
balancer etc.). Docker images are based on the embedded Linux
distribution OpenWrt.

We are looking for new colleagues who ideally

– have 3+ years of Linux experience (e.g. are fluent in shell scripting
and have a good overview of the GNU/Linux tools)

– have a working knowledge of Docker, its interaction with the host, and
the role of the container image

– have experience in Common Lisp (not necessarily professional)

– want to use CL to solve systems engineering problems (e.g. dynamic
load balancing, DNS re-configuration)

– are interested in mastering the OpenWrt build system (buildroot +
make/cmake) to create a secure in-container distribution

Experience in the mentioned areas is not as important as curiosity,
intelligence and open-mindedness. You will get the necessary time to
learn the missing skills. We are interested in a long-term relationship
rather than just staffing a project with ‘resources’.

Due to our size as a small company, we do care about each one of our
colleagues and react flexibly to the (sometimes changing) necessities of
their life. Together we try to develop a plan for your personal career,
depending on your own goals.

Curious? Please contact Kambiz Darabi at information@m-creations.com
He’ll be happy to give you more information and answer all your
questions.

Clojure Engineer, ROKT, Sydney, Australia

ROKT (www.rokt.com) is hiring thoughtful, talented functional programmers, at all levels, to expand our Clojure team in Sydney, Australia.  (We’re looking for people who already have the right to work in Australia, please.)

ROKT is a successful startup with a transaction marketing platform used by some of the world’s largest ecommerce sites. Our Sydney-based engineering team supports a business that is growing rapidly around the world.

Our Clojure engineers are responsible for ROKT’s “Data Platform”, a web interface for our sales teams, our operations team, and our customers to extract and upload the data that drives our customers’ businesses and our own. We write Clojure on the server-side, and a ClojureScript single-page application on the frontend.

We don’t have a Hadoop-based neural net diligently organising our customer data into the world’s most efficiently balanced red-black tree (good news: we won’t ask you to write one in an interview) — instead, we try to spend our time carefully building the simplest thing that’ll do what the business needs done. We’re looking for programmers who can help us build simple, robust systems — and we think that means writing in a very functional style — whether that involves hooking some CV-enhancing buzzword technology on the side or not.

If you have professional Clojure experience, that’s excellent, we’d like to hear about it. But we don’t have a big matrix of exacting checkboxes to measure you against, so if your Clojure isn’t fluent yet, we’ll be happy to hear what you can do with Common Lisp or Scheme, or in fact any other language.  We have the luxury of building out a solid team of thoughtful developers — no “get me a resource with exactly X years of experience in technology Y, stat!”

If this sounds interesting, please contact Sam Roberton at sam.roberton@rokt.com. Sam’s an engineer on the Clojure team, and he’d be happy to tell you whatever you want to know about what we do and what we’re looking for.

Clojure Engineer, Funding Circle, San Francisco

Prospectus:

Would you describe yourself as a creative and ambitious engineer who’s always ready to take on the next cutting edge technology? If your answer is yes, you’re going to fit right in with our global team. We’re looking for an experienced and enthusiastic Clojure Engineer who will bring elegance and simplicity to the forefront of our distributed systems. We are a group of passionate engineers whose bread and butter is learning new technologies and fostering a collaborative and inclusive environment – we’re looking for partners in crime who feel the same.

Bird’s eye view of the role:

  • Be an automator: we are continually reevaluating our stack to improve efficiency throughout the pipeline. We practice continuous integration and have a container-based deployment workflow.
  • Be a builder: you’ll build and expand our highly-available architecture to handle over $2 billion in loans originated through our pipeline.
  • Be a collector: you’ll help build scalable infrastructure to collect data for real time analytics and risk modeling.
  • Be a collaborator: you’ll be expected to forge deep bonds with your business counterparts to truly understand the needs of our Borrowers and Investors. We work in an Agile environment including pair programming and daily stand-ups.
  • Be a teacher: be generous with your time and expertise to teach stakeholders and our fellow engineers how to answer their own questions with tools you build.


Our ideal teammate has:

  • at least 1 year of professional experience working with Clojure (or really strong personal projects using Clojure).
  • 3+ years of overall software engineering experience in any language (Ruby, Python, Java, etc).
  • an interest in Functional Programming languages.
  • comfortable in a Unix/Linux environment.


Brownie points for:

  • Github or other open source code we can check out.
  • distributed systems experience.
  • experience with microservices and/or event-driven architecture.
  • operating at scale with low-latency systems.
  • familiarity with Docker, Mesos, and/or experience with distributed database systems, such as Cassandra
