Clojure  - 
 
Junior Full-Stack Developer, Maestro
Melbourne, Australia

POSTED JUNE 19

We are looking for an outstanding, motivated and hands-on full-stack junior developer to join our small team ASAP. We will structure the role and compensation to suit.

We are a small startup company who have developing a game changing application for the last 2 years. The application tracks pharmaceutical market access submissions and outcomes from all the world’s leading regulatory and reimbursement (subsidising) agencies and is unique in its kind.

You will have a range of responsibilities with a focus on working with the owner of the business, our UX designer and lead developer in transforming new designs and features into clean front and back-end code. You will also have input into feature development, design direction and strategy and will report to the lead developer.

You will

- Be able to demonstrate your experience building complex web-based applications, not just interactive websites.
- Be passionate about modern web development practices and thrive on learning new skills.
- Believe that results are important, but also that you should enjoy the journey and have fun along the way.
- Be based in Melbourne, and be an Australian Permanent Resident.

In return, we will

- Pay market compensation
- Offer a lot of flexibility in how you work (including the option of a four-day work week).
- Encourage you to learn new things, not just utilise what you already know.
- Provide a long list of interesting infrastructure, data, back-end, front-end and design challenges that would keep a curious full-stack developer constantly engaged and challenged.

What makes this role special

What makes this role interesting, at least to a certain type of developer, is that we’re building an application, not a website. Lots of ways for a creative and skilled developer to test and demonstrate their skills.

We also don’t shy away from using cutting edge technologies. Here is a quick rundown of our stack:

- Clojure server
- Clojurescript front end (using ReactJS)
- Postgres
- Redis

We make heavy use of these services:

- CircleCI
- Heroku
- AWS

You will get to work with good people in a fun and flexibility company. We share our office with a bunch of other startups so you’ll be working in a vibrant environment with lots of other designers and developers of online software.

Requirements

- 1 to 2+ years professional software development experience.
Experience building online applications
- Strong Javascript skills (experience with ReactJS highly desired).
- Clojure experience highly desired (or experience in another functional programming language)! Otherwise experience with other server-side frameworks such as Rails, Django, Express/NodeJS, etc
- SQL (Postgres) experience
- Familiarity with test driven development, build processes and continuous deployment.

When I was nine I got my first Apple ][+ for Christmas. I remember tearing it open, saying "is it a computer?" And my Dad told me, "No, it's a typewriter. So you can learn to type first".

For the first 15 minutes I owned a computer, I thought it was a typewriter :). So funny.

Happy Fathers Day, Dad. I miss you.
