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

For me, I'd lean more against not moving. I'm working around 8 hours per day, 5 days a week. Clojure makes those 40 hours much more agreeable, I'd need serious compensation to entertain moving away from it. I'm sure my point of view would change if I had, for example, a wife, kids or a mortgage.

So I guess what I'm saying is... don't get married? 🙃

@dromar56 As a married person and sole wage earner in this mortgaged house, I'd agree that your personal situation definitely factors into any job decision! 🙂 When Adobe bought Macromedia, I was offered six months severance as they eliminated my role -- I wanted to take it but my wife was very nervous about the job market and felt happier about me staying on with Adobe in a fairly senior role (they offered me three positions). Fast forward nine months and I was miserable at work and a few months after that she agreed that I should quit (with no severance at that point) and I took a role that made me (much) happier but didn't pay anywhere near as well. Because I was happier, she was more comfortable with me making various future job shifts. I had been at Macromedia for the first six years of our relationship so it was very stable and comforting for her.
