About the Role

As a Clojure Engineer at Audoo you will be reporting directly into our CTO and
will be joining a small, agile engineering team. The purpose of the role is to
collaboratively design and build the cloud microservices to support our smart
audio meters. The primary functions of the Audoo cloud are to coordinate the
globally dispersed devices to gather fingerprint data, identify the correct songs,
securely store the data gathered and produce timely and accurate reporting to
our partners. You will be an experienced engineer, well versed in AWS cloud
software development, ideally using Clojure or a similar functional language with
a focus on writing tested and maintainable code. Experience in microservices,
REST APIs, data and analytics is highly desirable.

You will be joining a small agile team that is on a mission to bring about a music
royalty revolution!

About You

You will be passionate about three things… Technology, Music and Changing the
World! You will be an inquisitive, creative and quality obsessed individual. We
are a small, fast paced team so you need to be able to work in a dynamic
environment that values clear communication and happy to work autonomously.
You will be passionate about building reliable, tested and scalable cloud services
with an understanding of cloud architectures.

Must have skills and experience

  • Experience in developing, building, testing and releasing cloud software,
    ideally written in Clojure or any other functional language
  • Highly experienced in delivering quality, testable code that is clear,
    concise, well-documented and adheres to commercial standards
  • Experience in AWS services, data storage, SQL, scalability and security
  • Experience of Agile Software Development practices (TDD, CI)

  • Understanding of microservice, Linux and container architectures
  • Demonstrable understanding of testing throughout the product lifecycle, both at code-level (unit testing) and application-level (manual/system/automation testing)
  • Excellent communication skills as you will be working closely with business stake holders as well as technologists and will need to be able to clearly understand concepts
  • Ability to thrive at a start-up – investigating, defining and experimenting to build high-quality, tested and engaging software as well as identifying activities that sit outside of your primary role requirements
  • Experience with internal and external API integrations
  • Ability to work collaboratively with all areas of the business and coordinate with 3rd party partners as and when is needed
  • A keen eye for detail, not just in development, but when creating supporting technical documentation as well

Bonus skills and experience

  • Start-up experience
  • Experience of analytics capture, organising data and generating business insights
  • Passion for the music industry!
