Were looking for someone who enjoys multitasking and providing architectural guidance across as many as 2-3 different client projects.

This job is a good fit for you if you enjoy mentoring and teaching the finer points of production-level Clojure, but also still enjoy getting your hands dirty and writing excellent Clojure.

Database/Persistence: PostgreSQL, Cassandra, Redis, Elasticsearch, Neo4j

Infrastructure: AWS, Azure, GCP, Heroku for infrastructure. CircleCI, Ansible, Terraform for CI. ZeroTier, ZeroMQ, Nginx, Lambdas/Azure Functions for miscellaneous tasks.
