[Whimsical](https://whimsical.com) is the thinking and collaboration tool for distributed work. Our software helps thousands of customers—from individuals to Fortune 500—to work together more effectively. \n\nWhimsical is expressive, fast, and delightful. We believe that software should spark joy, not dread.\n\nWe’re now looking for **Senior Clojure Front-end Developers** to help move that vision forward! \n\n## Day-to-day work\n\nAt Whimsical you can expect your day-to-day to include:\n\n- Scoping, understanding, and implementing features: Your primary task would be to work with other teammates to figure out the best [way to take a Shape Up pitch from idea to deployment within the cycle](https://basecamp.com/shapeup/3.1-chapter-09).\n- Support our customers: We have awesome customers, and supporting them often includes getting some help from the person that implemented the particular feature a customer is having issues with. \n- Support the team: Review pull requests, refactor code, help with both technical and non-technical issues and in general help each of us end the day better than when we woke up.\n- Potentially taking on-call duties in your time zone: We try to take advantage of the fact that we're a small, geographically distributed team by delegating the first-responder duties to the people who are awake at that particular moment.\n\nOur front-end stack is Cljs, Reframe, Reagent, among others.\n\nOur back-end stack is Clojure, Postgres, Redis, ECS, and is AWS based.\n\n## Indicators that this could be a good role for you\n\n- You feel that our philosophy resonates with you and you can see it guiding your decisions while at Whimsical.\n- You have 5+ years of front-end development experience.\n- You feel excited about building tools that help others seamlessly collaborate and think together.\n- You have experience [building complex interactive web applications.](https://whimsical.com/blog/how-we-built-whimsical)\n- You have used ClojureScript in a production environment before, and feel comfortable using Clojure and functional programming in general to solve non-trivial problems\n- You have solid knowledge of modern JavaScript and React (Bonus: Reagent/re-frame).\n- You love chewing on the occasional geometry puzzle or have prior background in graphics programming.\n- You have experience in measuring, analyzing, and fixing performance problems.\n- You're able to work autonomously and stay self-motivated. (Bonus: previous experience working on remote team).\n- You are fluent in English.\n\n## Requirements\n\n- Due to legal and compliance reasons we’re looking for someone in either - 🇺🇸🇨🇦North America - 🇪🇺European Union - 🇬🇧United Kingdom\n\n- A resume or manually entered experience (you can choose your preference).\n- Thoughtful, thorough responses to all the application questions.\n\n## What We Offer\n\n- 100% Remote: We’re spread from California to Latvia and we’ve got you covered if you prefer to work from a coworking space\n- Salary: Annual salary starting at **$134,277** (depending on experience)\n- Equity: starting at **0.13%** (depending on experience)\n- Vacation: 4 weeks of paid time off each year\n- Parental Leave: 4 weeks paid by company\n- Equipment: We provide all the tech you need to work successfully\n- Summits: We try to bring everyone together at least twice a year\n- Pension*: 401k with 6% company matching\n- Health Insurance*: Paid by company for you and dependents\n\n_* Availability may depend on your location and our current administrative capabilities there._\n\n## How we work\n\nWe use an adapted version of [Basecamp's Shape Up](https://basecamp.com/shapeup) approach, which for us means:\n\n- We work in cycles of 6 weeks of focused work and 2 weeks of cool down.\n- Each 6 week work cycle sees one or more "bets" shipped, each having very specific and well defined requirements.\n- During cool down, each of us choose what we want to work on, be it bugs, minor features, tech debt, exploring new concepts, and more.\n- Each of us can create an "idea pitch" for an upcoming cycle, and move our ideas along.\n\nAs a front-end developer at Whimsical you will be helping to shape both the visual presentation and user experience at Whimsical by working on our collaboration tools using Canvas, improving our custom text-editor and contributing to other user facing features. You’ll be responsible for continually delighting our users with best-in-class thinking tools.\n\nIn addition to Shape Up, we also occasionally roll up our sleeves and do customer support to better understand our users and their needs, regardless of our role within the company.\n\nOur primary mode of operation is asynchronous. We use real-time communication with great care, and only where it makes sense. We use Whimsical, email, Slack, and Zoom for our day-to-day communication.\n\nBut we also believe in spending quality time together, which is why we try to bring everyone from around the world together at least twice a year for what we call "Whimsical Summits". At Summits we focus on getting to know each other better and building bonds that help us communicate better when we're apart. The ongoing global pandemic has prevented us from doing this for the last couple of months, but we hope to go back to this mode of operation as soon as possible.\n\n## About Whimsical\n\nWhimsical was founded in 2017 by Kaspars Dancis and Steve Schoeffel to help people think and collaborate in the digital-first work environment.\n\nWhimsical's product is expressive, fast, and delightful.

Whimsical is not like most companies. We are completely independent and believe that a business should care about more than just making money. We are [philosophy-driven](https://whimsical.com/blog/philosophy). Whimsical is remote-first - we're a small team of 12 people, spread across the globe.\n\nAt Whimsical, we're trying to do two things:\n\n1. Build world-class collaboration tools that are fast and delightful.\n2. Create a company that does good in the world and that is a joy to work at.\n\nWe believe in:\n\n-  **Sustainability**: We work a calm, 40-hour work week. Compensation is fair and transparent and does not depend on where in the world you live. We are committed to doing our part to [help the environment](https://whimsical.com/blog/on-the-path-to-sustainability).\n-  **Ethics over growth and profit**: We don't believe in growth at all costs or that growth should be our chief goal. Growth for us is a sign that we are building things that provide value for people. Growth also means that we can deploy more of our resources toward the things that we value.\n-  **Craftsmanship**: We care deeply about our work. We are specialists, eager learners, and persistent in our pursuit of quality work. We're patient and committed because building great things takes time.\n-  **Long-term focus**: We're [building Whimsical for the long-haul](https://whimsical.com/blog/why-bootstrap), not a quick exit. As partners in this business, we seek to invest our time instead of selling it. We think about which decisions we will be most proud of 10+ years from now.\n\nSee our [Blog](https://whimsical.com/blog) for more insight into how Whimsical does business differently.\n\nAnd we are now looking to share the joy of working on Whimsical with a Senior Clojure Backend Developer, our 13th teammate.\n\n**How we work**\n\nFor product work we use an adapted version of [Basecamp's Shape Up](https://basecamp.com/shapeup) approach, which for us means:\n\n- We work in cycles of 6 weeks of focused work and 2 weeks of cool-down.\n- Each 6-week work cycle sees one or more "bets" shipped, each having very specific and well-defined requirements.\n- During cool-down, each of us choose what we want to work on, be it bugs, minor features, tech debt, exploring new concepts, and more.\n- Each of us can create an "idea pitch" for an upcoming cycle, and move our ideas along.\n\nAs a back-end developer at Whimsical, you'll be contributing to all things server and infrastructure-based, be it backend code, database optimizations, managing infrastructure, or ensuring that our servers are alive and healthy. And being a small company means that sometimes contributing to Frontend and other areas of the product shouldn't be a deal-breaker to you.\n\nIn addition to Shape Up, we also occasionally roll up our sleeves and do customer support to better understand our users and their needs, regardless of our role within the company.\n\nOur primary mode of operation is asynchronous. We use real-time communication with great care, and only where it makes sense. We use Whimsical, email, Slack, and Zoom for our day-to-day communication.\n\nBut we also believe in spending quality time together, which is why we try to bring everyone from around the world together at least twice a year for what we call "Whimsical Summits". At Summits we focus on getting to know each other better and building bonds that help us communicate better when we're apart. The ongoing global pandemic has prevented us from doing this for the last couple of months, but we hope to go back to this mode of operation as soon as possible.\n\n**Day-to-day work**\n\nAt Whimsical you can expect your day-to-day to include:\n-  **Scoping, understanding, and implementing features**: You'd work with other teammates to figure out the best [way to take a Shape Up pitch from an idea to deployment within the cycle](https://basecamp.com/shapeup/3.1-chapter-09).\n-  **Support our customers**: We have awesome customers, and supporting them often includes getting some help from the person that implemented the particular feature a customer is having issues with.\n-  **Support the team**: Review pull requests, refactor code, help with both technical and non-technical issues, and in general help each of us end the day better than when we woke up.\n-  **Taking on-call duties in your time zone**: We try to take advantage of the fact that we're a small, geographically distributed team by delegating the first-responder duties to the people who are awake at that particular moment.\n\n**Indicators that this could be a good role for you:**\n- You feel that our philosophy resonates with you and you can see it guiding your decisions while at Whimsical.\n- You have 5+ years of backend development experience.\n- You have experience [building and maintaining complex systems.](https://whimsical.com/blog/how-we-built-whimsical)\n- You feel comfortable using Clojure and functional programming in general to solve non-trivial problems (Bonus: you've used Clojure in a production environment before).\n- You have previous experience running systems in the cloud (Bonus: specific experience with AWS)\n- You have previous experience with running production workloads in containers (Bonus: specific experience with AWS ECS)\n- You have experience in measuring, analyzing, and fixing performance problems in a distributed environment.\n- You're able to work autonomously and stay self-motivated. (Bonus: previous experience working in a remote team).\n- You are fluent in English.\n\n### Requirements\n- We're currently looking for somebody with sufficient overlap to our existing team, so you'd have to be living in US/Canada/Europe, between Mountain Time/-6 UTC and Central European Time/+1 UTC. (We will still review applicants outside of these time zones in case we have need of developers in other time zones in the future.)\n- A resume or manually entered experience (you can choose your preference).\n- Thoughtful, thorough responses to all the application questions.\n\n### Benefits\n- 100% remote team\n- Equity (depending on experience)\n- Fully paid health insurance*\n- 4 weeks of paid time off per year\n- 4 weeks of paid parental leave\n- 401k matching*\n- The equipment you need to work successfully, including a computer, peripherals, co-working, etc.\n\n* Availability may depend on your location and our current administrative capabilities there.\n \n\nBe sure to mention the words **DEMAND SHAFT AUNT** when applying to show you read the job post completely. This is a beta feature to avoid spam applicants. Companies can search these words to find applicants that read this and see they're human.\n\n \n\n#Salary and compensation\n $134,000 — $200,000/year\n \n\n#Location\nBetween -6 UTC and +1 UTC
