We Are Hiring Remote Full-stack Clojure Developer

Remote Full-stack Clojure Developer

About Us

Disco Melee was founded by gamers, for gamers, to deal with with the lack of social features in other gaming-centric sites, and to reinvent the concept of social streaming. Basically we are “making gaming social again”.
We are seeking backend, frontend and/or full-stack developers to help us achieve that goal. We are moving fast, currently in closed beta, but are looking to open it up soon.
We’re headquartered in Mebane, NC. We’re very interested in local candidates but are also excited to work with 100% remote developers.

Technology

The frontend is built in Clojurescript and Om, the backend in Clojure on a PostgreSQL database.

  • Good written and spoken English (this is a fully remote position)
  • Functional programming techniques

Front-end:

  • Modern HTML and CSS (LESS)/Bootstrap
  • Clojurescript (and Javascript)
  • React (Om)
  • Implementing a Photoshop design in HTML/CSS

Back-end:

  • Clojure
  • SQL (we use PostgreSQL)

Desirable skills:

  • Data security and privacy
  • JVM familiarity (ecosystem)
  • XMPP protocol knowledge
  • Video streaming/web video familiarity
  • Distributed systems
  • Payment processors
  • Mobile (iOS/Android) knowledge
