Job hunting, interview process and anything related to the experience of a job writing the Clojure language.

I don't think there's one - there tends to be no magical source of gigs. It tends to boil down to who you are. Or luck. HN who's hiring at most? was launched this year, don't know how it went (side thought: there's probably a startup opportunity in the freelance gigs sector; both sides of the equation tend to be frustrated. But solving the problem needs something more sophisticated than yet another platform/job-board)

Thanks, @vemv! When you say start up opportunity, are you thinking something just for Clojure devs? Or a platform that better matches devs with their technical desires

the latter 🙂 my thinking (which I don't mind sharing) is that companies will get flooded with spam no matter what they post. People can just lie to get the gig, ruining the scene for everyone else. So I would validate freelancers against factual, checkable things like legal papertrail, github contributions, etc. There are a bunch of 'filter-heavy' platforms but I think they don't have the right focus. Also I would encourage that projects are developed in the open (FOSS), even if paid and for private purposes. It would help unlocking the current deadlock (few trusted freelancers -> no gigs -> fewer trusted freelancers)

(for making sense of what I say, bear in mind that freelancer != remote worker, whatever the contract says)
