Hey guys and gals, I have a client based out of Dallas, TX hiring multiple 100% REMOTE clojure developers for a 6-12 month contract. Must be in CST OR EST time zone. Looking for senior level, huge plus if you have datomic experience.

Hi, is it open to US residents only?

Ashton Murray14:08:56

US Residents and GC holders

cjmurphy16:08:15

@U019A05BLTG You specified the TZ, but more important to say that candidates have to be in the US. Plenty of #remote-jobs members are from other countries and working remotely between countries is assumed.

Ashton Murray18:08:19

Good point! Thanks

kwladyka15:08:09

I am not looking a job right now, but I really recommend to hire people outside. I am working now for company in Dallas while I live in Poland and this is totally fine. Do not be afraid to hire people outside US. No reason to do that - skills are more important.

kwladyka15:08:47

and there is no bookkeeping issue when do it on B2B which is very common

Ashton Murray15:08:02

Totally agree, but unfortunately its not my decision. It's my client's decision, and right now they are only hiring candidates for this role that are located in the US. I will updated if anything changes! 🙂

kwladyka15:08:38

Let us know if there is any way to change people’s mind about remote hiring. I wish it would work different at least for clojure community 🙂

Ashton Murray15:08:14

Me as well. Hopefully it will open up to more candidates soon.

millettjon14:08:22

Yes. Plenty of expats living abroad.

Hey @U0WL6FA77, I'm living in Brazil. The timezone is fine for openings in US, but not being physically there is always an issue. Could you point me for contents on how I could be hired as a Business instead of an employee?

kwladyka12:09:57

@UBK8J929J not a big issue. I just flying there for 2 weeks on the beginning. Just make a company in whatever form. Each country has different law. I don’t know Brazil law, so can’t help you in details here.

kwladyka12:09:05

you need to fill W-8BEN-E form for tax purpose when you make an agreement with US and this is mainly all what you need.

Jp Soares12:09:16

Very nice, this type of information is hard to find just googling, thank you. I thought I would need a US company.

kwladyka12:09:12

*now a big issue - not a big ussue. typo

kwladyka12:09:20

but the point is people in US have this mindset to fear this, because they don’t know this rules too

kwladyka12:09:26

I mean the biggest issue is people mindset. Not bureaucracy and law.

Jp Soares12:09:14

I will try to understand the bureaucracy and explain in interviews.

kwladyka13:09:42

I always hear then somebody on higher level in company decided about this and this is the end of the topic. They can do nothing and even not know who exactly make this rule, but they can’t hire somebody outside US. Maybe in the future ;)

kwladyka13:09:41

but try! let me know if you succeed !
