@alex.lynham we're 4 devs atm... though only 3 of those are clj/s

There are also a few clj shops around Machester, and further up north as well as in Bristol and Exeter way

yogidevbear15:05:33

Not necessarily remote though

alexlynham15:05:41

I used to work for one of the clj shops in mcr and it was on site

alexlynham15:05:48

although 2 devs were remote tbf

alexlynham15:05:52

but I was onsite

shan15:05:52

didn’t know there was any clj in Manchester or Exeter.

shan15:05:49

Met someone at a clojure meetup and they mentioned they’ve been contracting at a few companies doing clojure on their data pipeline, Channel 4, Apple, Youview

alexlynham10:05:46

otfrom16:05:49

There's at least one company in Cambridge (Metail), but I think most of the others I know of (outside London) have been mentioned.

shan16:05:07

I think ovo energy do some in bristol

yogidevbear16:05:58

And the team at Riverford (I think they're in Exeter) are also using Clojure

otfrom17:05:55

juxt in Northampton obviously

otfrom17:05:55

there was some in Glasgow for student loans (via Thoughtworks I think)

sfalcon07:05:17

Thoughtworks bootstrapped the project, it's maintained and developed by Student Loans themselves now (I used to work there)

sfalcon07:05:39

@U0525KG62 Arnold Clark in Glasgow also codes their site in clojure

the2bears17:05:40

Riverford is the farm/CSA group, right? Always thought that was interesting.

seancorfield18:05:26

Is remote work in general fairly rare in the UK?

seancorfield18:05:06

(and is that perhaps because the UK is relatively small and so it's expected folks will commute or relocate?)

otfrom18:05:41

it is a lot more common than it used to be

otfrom18:05:56

I think London is a bit of a problem (violating zipf's law and all that)

vemv19:05:18

I've always thought that with the budget that can pay 400-700 ppd, you could build a kickass remote team instead

dottedmag19:05:58

Successfully building a remote team is a rare skill.
