Job description
The functional/clojure software developer will join the dev team and contribute as a full stack clojure developer to the Nuvla B2B edge management platform, powering the Nuvla software solution.

SixSq is building the most advanced edge-to-cloud B2B SaaS platform: Nuvla. With the acquisition of SixSq by Ekinops, we are growing quickly. We are looking for software developers wanting to join a multi-cultural and international team. As a software developer you will contribute to the overall objective of the company, which is to disrupt the IT industry with an open, agile, simple and efficient platform. The platform also includes a marketplace of business applications targeting the far edge in a range of sectors such as retail, manufacturing, transport, telecoms and energy.

Nuvla is mostly built using the functional language Clojure and the web ui Clojurescript. We therefore are looking for developers with experience in functional languages or willing to learn this amazing paradigm and join a great community. The solution also leverages Elasticsearch, Zookeeper and Kafka. And our operations target public cloud infrastructures and Kubernetes as the container orchestration engine.

The core team is based in Geneva, in beautiful Switzerland. Remote working is possible, however you must be living in or around Switzerland, with the ability to come to Geneva from 2-4 times per year. As the company operates using mature agile methodologies, experience or interest in agile development is required, since this is how we think and do things.

Expect to be given time and space to learn before jumping right in to developing production code for Nuvla. As an agile team, we expect each developer to be able to contribute to feature definition, architecture, design, implementation, testing and operations support. Also, you will be expected to share and present your work to your peers, Nuvla Tech Lead, Scrum Master and Product Owner for feedback and guidance.

Since we continue to operate as a scale-up, with the backing of a publicly listed company, you will have the opportunity to thrive in our fast moving, and exciting work environment. This could include, if you are interested in participating to the sales effort, creating stimulating demonstrations and take part in technical discussions with customers and prospects.

Tasks and Activities
The responsibilities will include:
production software development including designing solutions, writing code, testing code, automating test and deployment
delivery of software components working in collaboration with the rest of the team and integrated into our CI/CD pipeline
