We're expanding our Clojure / CFML development team and looking for our next "Senior Web Applications Developer". You'll get to work from home full-time, with myself, Charlie Griefer and the rest of our small (but growing) development team spread out across the USA. You'll work on our Internet dating platform in both CFML and Clojure. We're all-Mac for development and all-Linux for deployment so you'll need to have some *nix chops and we'd prefer folks with MySQL and MongoDB experience. Yes, I know that's a pretty specific set of skills but we can be flexible if you're the right person for the team.
I've been with World Singles full-time for two years now (and about a year of consulting before that) and I think they're a great bunch of people, solving an interesting set of problems, with millions of customers all around the world - so you get real world feedback about what you produce! I love working here and I'm looking forward to growing our team.
You can read the official job listing on Craigslist (and that's how you apply - send your resume and cover letter to the address listed there). Feel free to ask me questions about the role, either in comments here or directly via the contact me page.

Yesterday I posted that we're looking for a back end / data-centric developer, today we've posted a new req for a front end developer!
As before: World Singles is looking for a smart, motivated developer to join our small, fully distributed team of engineers, working on our multi-lingual, multi-tenant Internet dating platform.

World Singles is looking for a smart, motivated developer to join our small, fully distributed team of engineers, working on our multi-lingual, multi-tenant Internet dating platform. We're after someone with strong data management skills who can help us mine and analyze data in both MySQL and MongoDB, as well as help us leverage both more effectively.

The World Singles code base is a blend of CFML and Clojure - this role would be mainly on the Clojure side of the house but the primary skills needed are MySQL / MongoDB.

I was very pleased today to get confirmation that my team are all going to Clojure/West in San Jose in March!
We've been a CFML house for a decade but we're using Clojure more and more on the back end to provide a high-performance, concurrency-safe foundation for our application. Back in December a couple of us attended Clojure/conj, with three days of Clojure training for one of our team. Now we're training up another team member on Clojure, and in March three of us will attend the Clojure conference, with training on Cascalog (big data analysis) for one of our team.
It's an exciting time to be a developer!
