essentials and perks

We'll give you all the standard stuff to get your job done: a full workstation and a laptop of your choice. We'll get you software licenses and a 4G data dongle if you need to work from the train.

An extensive library (buy any book you want, no questions asked) and frequent conference attendance act as our baseline. In the last few years, we sponsored and attended a ton of conferences all over the world: IN/Clojure, Clojure/conj, Euroclojure, Clojure/West, StrangeLoop, Functional Conf, FOSSMeet, RubyConf India, JSFoo, rootconf, RubyConf San Diego, React Conf SF, GCRC, Fifth Elephant, and probably one or two we've forgotten. We took the lead in organizing IN/Clojure (the only Clojure conference in Asia) two years running.

A few lines here about remote work, WFH, company policy with workiung days vs days off etc.

We know that not everyone can or wants to work from our office in Bangalore. As of 2019, we have two fully remote employees on staff, and plan to hire more. If there's a way we can make your workday with nilenso more comfortable or fun, we'll do it. If we can help you with something else, just ask. We'll try.

business decision records

Business Decision Records (BDRs) are documents written to capture significant strategic decisions, in the style of software architecture decision records.

We have found ADRs to be very useful to retrospect and introspect on our software projects. BDRs are an attempt to bring that utility to the arc of our business.

BDRs have some distinct properties: First and foremost, they are immutable. Once a BDR is written, it cannot be modified or removed. To alter or "undo" a BDR, nilenso must create another new, immutable BDR. Second, they are historical. Because BDRs cannot be modified, they do not represent a policy and they are not a living document. They may of course point to a policy or living document which represents the most current version of the decision. BDRs are used to identify decision points for high-level strategy, policy, and company principles. They should not be used to describe or document specific actions the company or its employees take.
