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.
