Clojure/ClojureScript and Datomic engineer at Listoria, London or remote

Listora is seeking a Clojure/ClojureScript and Datomic engineer

Reply to Henry dot ec at Gmail dot com

London based start up with highly experienced (and awesome) distributed team of researchers, engineers and designers. Although the project is still in its infancy (very greenfield), we have a big vision of being the global leader in high-quality structured events data, which will help to drive the contextual and personalised event discovery experiences of the future.

We’re developing our platform along with applications that meet the needs (jobs/outcomes) of content data partners, event organisers, publishers and developers. It’s both a huge CS and product challenge and we need exceptional and ambitious people to solve the problems that we’ll come up against.

We’ve been developing our core platform with Clojure + Datomic/Cassandra and our applications with ClojureScript/Om. We have a very advanced stack that any passionate FP engineer would be excited about working on. We also regularly work in the open source community and are already releasing libraries.

In terms of product, we have an upfront investment in high quality research and concept evaluation taken from years of experience using both customer and outcome driven development methodologies. We are very open in what we do and have a toolset to build our products very closely with our customers. We don’t work to deadlines, but we do spend a lot of time thinking about the prioritisation of what we are and could be building.

We are looking for engineers to join our team that can hit the ground running. The right person will be self-motivated, conscientious, humble and a great communicator. We are looking for people with many years FP experience in senior, lead or architectural roles and are used to working in a start up environment with start up tooling.

We want to work with fantastic engineers and passionate people. This is one of the things that motivates us. We don’t mind where in the world you’re based or whether you want a permanent or contracting relationship.

If you’re the right fit with our team we will work hard to look after you – from giving you the flexibility to explore ideas and technologies for the job at hand to remuneration.

If you have any questions, we would love to hear from you.

UIx expert, Clojure architect, remote/LA for movie startup

UIx expert, Clojure architect

You can be anywhere. We are located in Virginia Beach, but the company is likely to settle in Los Angeles. You would be coming in extremely early in the game.

Our startup will build a sort of wikipedia for movies, supporting medium form essays on movies and movie ideas. Differences from W:

— You annotate directly on the film using a unique space-time scrubber. Annotations include purely cinematic attributes.

— External content is interpreted and shown in-line, using a novel ‘outliner.’

— Everything is reactive functions, specified by users via drawing typed links.

— We support ‘situation theory’ (per Barwise and Devlin) using a categoric second sort. (Every user sees something different.)

— Something like OWL will be used for dynamic ontology graph creation, supporting ontological federation.

— We love movies, and use a novel sense of narrative dynamics in reasoning about film and in constructing essays.

— We’ll use Clojure for all the forward components and build a categoric, visual DSL. Some early work (now abandoned) was in Erlang.

— A second use (in a couple years) is multi-system biomedical research.

— We want to do something fun and significant. Maybe we will make someone rich. Maybe us, maybe not.

The project is inspired by work done for the intelligence community by folks that are now disgusted, and determined to repurpose what was invented.

Our current state is that many components are mocked up. Some LA heavyweights are involved. Some patents are granted, others pending. Funding is being sought. We think it better to work on prototype code than fake demos at this point, starting with the scrubber then outliner.

You would help design the overall architecture and code prototype bits. The position is expected to lead to being team leader for one of the components, and one responsibility will be to help build the team.

A downside is that we are inventing as we build. Some things will use simple good engineering principles; others will require new science and creative vision. Many of the UI conventions are experimental and will have to evolve as we go. You probably won’t be able to use an off the shelf framework/stack. It will be hard, hard, hard.

It is possible that a partner may emerge that wants native apps so we’ll have to pivot to include their stinky frameworks. We don’t yet know what the balance will be between contributing open source and keeping things proprietary, but we will do both.

Contact Ted Goranson at tedg then the at sign then alum.MIT then dot then edu.

We will initially send two academic papers: one for the biomedical community and the other on the scrubber for a forthcoming ACM UI conference.
