ElmQuickCast is our upcoming podcast on briefs.fm, which is an awesome micro podcast service where episodes are limited to three minutes, published by email, and still sound amazing even when recorded on your phone.
Our goals for ElmQuickCast are to keep you up to date with what’s going on in the Elm community while you are on the go. You can learn about upcoming meetups, cool new libraries, hear interviews with Elm community members, and everything else we can think up.
For ElmQuickCast #1 we want to answer the question "Who’s hiring Elm developers?" Earlier this morning while browsing the @elmcastio twitter feed, I noticed two very similar tweets:
Everybody is talking about Elm and Elixir in production, but how do you even find those #elmlang and #elixirlang jobs? 😃— Björn Johansson (@bjorse) March 2, 2016
We will be covering Elixir and Elm in an upcoming ElmCast, but for today let’s focus on Elm itself.
I decided to do some searching and see how easy it would be to find Elm job postings. Of course, if you are searching for an answer to an Elm question, chances are that Richard Feldman is going to swoop in and provide an answer, so let’s start with the only company I could find that is actively hiring Elm developers, NoRedInk, a web-based language-learning platform designed to help students in grades 4-12 improve their grammar and writing skills.
And in fact, NoRedInk is hiring both a Junior and Senior web developer to work with Elm. You can’t really know about Elm these days without having watched a video by Richard or Evan, so if you want to write Elm all day, NoRedInk seems likes your best choice.
Now there is also Pear Deck, an edtech startup with the vision of ridding the world of passive, ineffective lectures which seems to be using Elm in production, and they are actively hiring right now. I would say this is probably your next best choice.
Next up are some job postings that just include Elm in their description like VoltServer in East Greenwich, RI. MOSAIC Print in Cheverly, MD might be a good fit if you are a .net developer with an interest in Elm. And finally I am super excited that Docker, of all companies, is hiring a web developer with expertise in React and Redux with bonus points if you’ve built a web app in Elm.
Finally, I would like to mention a few companies that are using Elm in production, but don’t seem to have open job listings right now. You might want to keep an eye on the career pages and blogs for CircuitHub, Prezi, Futurice, Beautiful Destinations, Gizra, and TruQu.
Now keep in mind, Elm is an emerging technology. There are tons of developers and companies testing the language out to see if it will be a good fit for them. We should see many more job listings in the future as adoption increases.
If you are a company that is using Elm in production and want to be included in this list, please let us know (@elmcastio)!

“It’s a great time to be an engineer.”
Information retrieval and search engineering are becoming more intertwined with machine learning and natural language processing, leading to a wealth of work to be done in the field.
Grant Ingersoll is a founder and CTO of LucidWorks, which helps clients make sense of their data and deploy search applications built on Apache Lucene and Solr.
What kinds of applications need search functionality?
Do you have to vectorize client data and files before you can use them?
How are search and machine learning complementary?
What is the difference between supervised and unsupervised machine learning?
When you teach people the concepts of information retrieval, what are the things that people have trouble understanding?
What do you mean when you say “embrace fuzziness”?
How will information retrieval change in the next 5-10 years?
