Job Description

Kira Inc. is a Toronto-based startup using machine learning to automate legal work. We’re looking for a developer to work on our Clojure and ClojureScript web application. Our stack includes reactive single-page web client code and a distributed backend to handle internal computations.

This position focuses on internal tools such as application analytics and service integrations.

  • Client-side UI code.
  • Server-side REST routes.
  • Platform and core APIs.
  • Document and report generation.

Technologies we use

  • Clojure, ClojureScript, Reagent (React.js),
  • SQL, PostgreSQL, Java,
  • RabbitMQ, ElasticSearch, Docker

You should have knowledge of some of these. Most of all we look for those interested in learning.

Please send us:

  • cover letter — tell us why you’re interested and what you look for in a job,
  • resume/linkedin profile,
  • link to github projects or other work samples.

We want to hear from you. Apply on this page or email your resume to with 'Web Developer' in the subject line.
