Full Stack Engineer (Ruby/React)

Job Description

Posted 9 months ago

We are looking for a skilled, ambitious, mid-to-senior level engineer who will take a key role in the growth of our product and company.

If the following describes you, then we should talk...

The idea of working for a small, fast-paced but growing company drives and excites you. 

Being “in on the ground floor” is a challenge that you are thrilled to accept, and you’re ready to get your hands dirty. After all, you’ll be the 2nd engineer to join the product.

Someday you’d like to start your own company and plunge into the rewarding life of software entrepreneurship. Learning directly from an experienced founder and product leader seems, to you, like the perfect opportunity to learn and grow.

You consider yourself a master of both Ruby on Rails and React. Those are your weapons of choice, but you’ll happily learn new technologies as needed. In fact, learning new skills is second nature to you.

You will be responsible for expanding and refactoring our front-end and back-end codebase, ensuring the responsiveness of applications, and working directly alongside one of the Co-Founders, who is also a Product Manager UX Designer.

You will need to be self-motivated and interested in leveling up as we grow at a healthy, but rapid pace. You’ll be involved with hiring decisions and scaling a team of engineers over time.

Great communication, collaboration, and critical-thinking skills are an absolute must.
