This seems really neat! What sorts of background and skills do you look for in candidates? I've enjoyed working on simple/toy lexers and parser in the past, but I'm not sure that'd be enough to get started with the kind of work your website describes.


We are looking for experienced Java Developers (currently we have devs in UK, Portugal, Canada and USA).


Curious why you didn't choose OCaml or Haskell


it would be even harder to find OCaml/Haskell developers :)


what about clojure?


We are a Java shop .. there is a long history to the initial decision and the implications. Currently we have about 500,000 lines of code to maintain per developer.

With that said we have worked with developers proficient in other languages. Those experiences have taught us to avoid "religious" arguments about our development environment. We have made the practical decision to hire only those who follow the same religion. Does that make us biased? I guess so!
