Role overview

About Us

English Language iTutoring has developed online English language learning and automated assessment tools. From free feedback and encouragement to help individuals improve, to support for teachers, as well as exam practice and APIs for integration into existing products, ELiT is transforming how learners and teachers of English are supported 🤝

ELiT's Write & Improve and Speak & Improve applications are used by hundreds and thousands of students and educators worldwide. Their use reduces the risk of boredom, bias, and burnout; saves time and money, and helps students get the best results possible 💯

Since launching in 2015, ELiT has been acquired by Cambridge University Press & Assessment, who are globally renowned for English language assessment and educational publishing 📚

We are now expanding our engineering team of nine, and need skilled Senior Clojure Developers to help us build our ecosystem around automated language assessment using Clojure, ClojureScript, and Cloud Services.

The Role

As a core member of our software development team, you will:

  • Help develop ELiT's system of services, single-page applications, data warehouse and analytics pipeline.
  • Write high-quality code that is well designed, peer reviewed, and thoroughly tested and documented.
  • Provision AWS infrastructure, deploying services and monitoring them in production using CI/CD in a DevOps environment.
  • Work in a collaborative and inclusive agile environment and help to improve our processes.
  • Collaborate with leading researchers at Cambridge university to harness the power of their NLP and Machine Learning research and provide data and tools to support future research.

We have a mature and progressive approach to software engineering and working with technology in general. We embrace principles and processes that help us deliver quality software, including automated testing, continuous integration and delivery, automated deployment and support. Our ways of working are always evolving; if something's not working, we change it.

Who we're looking for

We're looking for experienced, enthusiastic Software Engineers. While experience working with some of our technologies would be ideal, your potential, enthusiasm and your willingness to learn is more important. 

What we're looking for

  • Commercial Software Engineering experience
  • Prior experience with functional programming languages, not necessarily in a commercial setting
  • A desire to help English language learners worldwide

Nice to have

  • Commercial Clojure or ClojureScript experience, especially with shadow-cljs, reagent and re-frame
  • Frontend experience in JavaScript, HTML and CSS
  • Experience provisioning and managing infrastructure on AWS, especially using Terraform
  • Knowledge of SQL, and experience with PostgreSQL and MySQL databases

Benefits

  • Flexible working
  • 35 hours a week
  • Remote working
  • 28.5 days holiday (plus bank holidays)
  • Learning budget
  • 10% rule: every other Wednesday is spent learning something new! Whether that's getting your AWS certification or learning Haskell, we'll support you 🙌
  • Pension package
  • 10-49

English Language iTutoring (ELiT) was formed in 2015 with the goal of taking computational linguistics research and applying it to English Language Learning. We now operate as part of Cambridge University Press & Assessment, who are global leaders in English language assessment and educational publishing. We currently have 9 engineers across the UK and are looking for Clojure Engineers to join our growing software team. We build ground-breaking English Language Learning applications and APIs based on automated language assessment technology. We work at the interface of EdTech software engineering and world-leading Natural Language Processing research from Cambridge University. Our Write & Improve and Speak & Improve applications are used by hundreds of thousands of learners and teachers worldwide, as well as our automaker technology which delivers exam results to candidates at scale.
