job description

Our client is looking for someone to play a key role as a part of their small engineering team, working to build a polished experience for their customers while also scaling the systems required to operate the business. You’ll be expected to take ownership of the development of new features, from concept through to release.

How They Work

  • They're growing fast, and are focused on building a well designed, scalable and robust platform. In some areas of work there is very little margin for error.
  • They follow Agile practices, delivering improvements iteratively in small chunks. They track the impact of their work and measure themselves on results, not the amount of code written.
  • They review each others code, and set aside time for hacking on experimental features, refactoring and/or learning new things.
  • Their technology platform is built in Ruby on Rails, and they also use a bunch of AWS services (via Terraform), Postgres, Docker, and a little bit of React.
  • They have automated tests, continuous deployment, and release to production multiple times per day.
  • They work hard and finish on time, NO CRAZY HOURS!

What You Need

  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills — they work together and succeed as a team
  • Experience building web applications using Ruby or a similar language
  • Experience with automated testing
  • Be able to take complex problems, break them down, and build robust solutions
  • Be comfortable building back end systems that have no user interface
  • Enjoy discussions about software/product design and crafting solutions
  • It would be a massive bonus if you had any of the following:
    • Experience building distributed systems (e.g. Micro Services)
    • Experience building large scale systems
    • Experience being self-employed (freelancing, contracting etc) in any industry/profession
