FRONT-END DEVELOPER (CLOJURESCRIPT)

We are looking for a generalist developer with a front-end focus and strong interest in working with the Clojure ecosystem who can lead or contribute to all aspects of a modern technology stack. Our production systems are built almost entirely in Clojure/Clojurescript with help from Java/Javascript libraries as needed. We leverage Cassandra and Datomic as our data storage infrastructure and orchestrate all these tools with Ansible. We build our web interfaces with React, as well as our current mobile interfaces. We will be expanding our platforms into native iOS/Android and are exploring new tools such as React Native.

We emphasize simplicity and elegance to combat the inherently complex nature of healthcare. If you are a jack-of-all-trades with a deep interest in building front-end systems that involve complex client-server IO, data visualization, and helping people make sense of machine learning dat, then we’d love to talk to you.

YOU SHOULD HAVE

  • 4+ years working on front-end systems (desktop or mobile).
  • 2+ years working on production distributed systems projects with strong exposure to the back-end.
  • Experience working with UX and UI designers.
  • Strong knowledge of web standards, cross-browser issues, and CSS
  • Comfortable with one or more dynamic languages such as Python, Ruby, or Clojure.

IT’D BE GREAT IF YOU HAD

  • Comfort working with React or React Native
  • Experience with data visualization or animation in a web context
  • A track record contributing to open source software

OTHER STUFF THAT IS VERY RELEVANT

  • Experience with the Java/Clojure ecosystem
  • Exposure to Healthcare IT technologies and challenges
  • Exposure to AI – expert systems, statistical modeling, etc.
  • A UX/UI design background and/or interest
