Clojure is a dynamic, general-purpose programming language that runs on Java Virtual Machine (JVM), Common Language Runtime (CLR), and JavaScript platforms. While it’s not a popular beginner programming language, some more experienced developers find Clojure to be powerful, intuitive, and uniquely efficient. It is a member of the Lisp family of languages and is used by many large companies, including Amazon and Walmart. Software and web developers use Clojure to do everything from desktop application development to high-frequency trading.

Software developers with prior development experience may look to hone their expertise by learning Clojure. This choice might help them pursue a career among the top 10% software engineers (by pay), who currently earn more than $166,000 per year. As a whole, software development is one of the economy’s fastest-growing sectors, with an expected growth rate of 21% between 2018 and 2028, which is much faster than the 5% projected rate of growth across all occupations.
