I think it should be made clear how big part of the job is actually working in Clojure.

Thank you @U024VBA4FD5. I'll get more information on this particular job - the extent of clojure development and how Cisco uses clojure. I will say, we have many teams that need clojure developers - while this job is API prototype development, another is malware analysis (threat grid) and still another is working on an international team supporting APIs for SecureX's threat model. I will get more information on this particular role.

I asked for more information from the Hiring Manager on this specific job and here's the response:

Eileen Norton11:07:37

Most developers on the team are 100% clojure. This job is to make sure the functional specification of features and integrations that the team works on are well defined. We don’t usually commit code but when we do its mostly clojure. We have also done some work in python and golang, more to share examples of integrations with other teams who might use those languages. We also sometimes write python scripts to help with SecureX Orchestration.

Eileen Norton11:07:47

Multiple teams within Cisco use Clojure - ThreatGrid and SecureX. SecureX/Threat Response use clojure for its backend and middleware. The data model, APIs, Rules Engine are all written in clojure. In terms of functionality, we use clojure for threat investigation, incident response and the backend of all SecureX functionality including dashboards, user and org management etc. SecureX also has open source repositories that are clojure based.

This specific job is for those authorized to work in the US. We have another Sr. Data Services Engineer position working with Clojure that is open to EU and US applicants. (unfortunately, at this time, no other work authorizations accepted).
