We're also hiring at other levels, just send an email to careers@nilenso.com.

What we care about

  • Freedom, transparency and respect
  • Growing individually and collectively
  • Making a meaningful contribution
  • Building relationships

What we work on

We write Clojure / ClojureScript, Elixir, Go with a dash of Haskell /PureScript, Javascript, Java and Ruby / Rails, in the places those languages make sense.

We've spent significant time scaling and squeezing runtime performance out of Postgres and analytics performance out of HBase and Redshift.

Most of our code is on the backend, and it makes a lot of sense to us to write backend code in a LISP on the JVM, but we're not wedded to it. "Best tool for the job" applies at nilenso -- but the "best" tool needs to be quantified with facts. We love facts. We might be knee-deep in Swift or Rust or C (who knows) next year and we're looking for other open-minded developers to share their excitement with us.

On being remote

Last year amidst COVID-19, we became a fully remote company. People are working from their home offices, or anywhere, really. We might open up an office again when it is safe, though folks will have the option to continue working from home if they prefer that. If thereโ€™s a way we can make your work experience more comfortable or fun, weโ€™ll do it.

Essentials and Perks

  • ๐Ÿ’ป Weโ€™ll ensure that you have a comfortable home office, including a full workstation and any software licenses you need.
  • ๐Ÿ“š We have an extensive library, and encourage you to make use of it, as well as buy books youโ€™d like to read or tickets for conferences youโ€™d like to attend.
  • ๐Ÿ” Salaries, finances, and reviews are all transparent at nilenso.
  • ๐ŸŒด We offer paid menstrual leave as well as additional paid time off.
