We’re a driven, energetic startup with a team of 200+ based in London (Victoria), Munich, and Madrid. We are backed by some of Europe’s leading VCs and have raised over £48m in funding since we launched, so we’re growing fast. Weve just been ranked 6th in the Financial Times Top 1000 Fastest Growing Companies in Europe.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for experienced Senior Clojure Engineers to work in a new engineering led team to help build out our core platform. The team will work on a greenfield project to build services managing our core data and pricing calculations to enable our product teams to iterate quickly on consumer facing features.
This is an exciting opportunity for someone to help build a new team from the ground up and play a key role in the adoption of Clojure at carwow. Youll have the opportunity to guide and mentor our existing engineers in the ways of Clojure whilst being supported by a fantastic leadership team.
Why you should work at carwow
Our Development teams work within a fluid Agile environment. Well structured, readable code and a strong emphasis on TDD are key to us here. Our site has over 3 million unique visitors per month, usability, data science & analytics and performance are key to us in order to remain competitive in the modern tech scene.
Continuous learning is extremely important to us and we’re keen to learn and have regular study groups - at the moment we are running an internal weekly Elm coding dojo. In addition, we have a team culture of open-mindedness that allows you to have your opinions and insights be heard, considered and tried.
Every Friday, our team of Developers are given the freedom to take a break from the backlog and work on something of interest that contributes to the technical maturity and stability of our codebase. This could be by refactoring a particularly tricky part of the codebase, exploring a new framework to solve some our existing problems or even developing a new tool to help make life easier for the team.
