The "You recently graduated with a [...] degree in software engineering or a related discipline" requirement seems odd. Why recently?

Fair question --- colleague of agom here, BTW. I just discussed extensively with one of the people here at Lumicks, as I was wondering the same thing.

I think it's meant as a proxy for "enjoys a startup, not a 9-to-5 mentality, as we're still very much in an early growth phase, where people need to be a bit flexible". I may try to push for us to drop the "recently" bit, as I'm not convinced it's a proxy that's fair to use for this position.

So personally, I wouldn't take that particular adjective too seriously.

Thanks for reaching out!
