Brand new startup looking for a fullstack Clojure developer in Berlin

Red Sky Foods is a VC-backed foodtech startup that is on an exciting mission to drastically improve how food manufacturers across Europe procure their raw ingredients. The friendly and open-minded founding team has previously started a successful food manufacturing business (Charles, CEO), has led product at a construction tech company (Lionel, COO), and has three decades of diverse software development experience (Christian, CTO).

As a brand new startup, the pay won’t be great (€67K - €73K), the work will be hard, and change will be a constant. Heck, we don’t even have a proper website yet. But this is your chance to join us as employee #1, helping us build a modern online marketplace solution (greenfield software development - yay!), and benefit tremendously from our shared success through share options. You’ll be working closely with our CTO. Our goal is to set up a mission-driven, co-located software development office in Berlin that is working closely with our colleagues in London.


  • 1+ year of Clojure development experience
  • 2+ years of professional software development experience
  • Experience with at least one kind of database
  • Fluent in English
  • Open to pair programming
  • Already located in Berlin

Nice to haves:

  • Experience with ClojureScript and single page application development
  • Experience with Crux or Datomic
  • Experience with Java and JavaScript
  • A first experience in the startup world
  • Fluent in another European language


  • Friendly, open transparent culture
  • You’ll get to join a passionate startup as employee #1 and put a major mark on its journey
  • Some flexibility around working hours and remote work
  • Regular mentoring and feedback

Please send your resume to

Hi @pekeler , could you tell us a bit more about the company’s mission, and in particular in what way it plans to “drastically improve how food manufacturers across Europe procure their raw ingredients”? Is that improvement about cost / quality / transparency / supply security / health / waste / environmental impact / … ?

Such clarifications might help spark people’s interest :slight_smile:

Currently, the procurement process in the food industry is quite cumbersome and typically over the phone for many manufacturers. We’ll move this process online. Happy to get into more details in a personal conversation with anyone interested in this opportunity :slight_smile:
