Multiple Openings. US Citizens ONLY. 100% Remote but must live in North America. 

Getting a job is hard and stressful. We're trying to fix that. Seriously, that's the ethos behind this post as well as the product we need your help building. 

Come join a high-functioning team that needs your unique talents. Been there, done that crew. All pros. 

We are looking for a few Jr. Ruby on Rails developers responsible for managing the interchange of data between the server and the users. Your primary focus will be development of all server-side logic, definition and maintenance of the central database, and ensuring high performance and responsiveness to requests from the front-end.

If you've built or are currently building mission-critical software for larger enterprises. If you're just getting started, please apply for our Sr. Engineering position. 

Responsibilities

  • Design, build, and maintain efficient, reusable, and reliable Ruby code
  • Identify bottlenecks and bugs, and devise solutions to these problems
  • Help maintain code quality, organization and automatization
  • Skills

    • Experience with Ruby on Rails, along with other common libraries such as RSpec, Grape, and DelayedJob
    • Experience with relational databases, specifically PostgreSQL
    • Understanding of the syntax of Ruby and its nuances
    • Understanding of object-oriented programming
    • Familiarity with concepts of MVC, Mocking, ORM, and RESTful paradigms
    • Able to create database schemas that represent and support business processes
    • Able to implement automated testing platforms and unit tests
    • Understanding of Git and GitHub
    • Familiarity with continuous integration
    • Compensation

      • $60K - $90K (DOE) + health benefits

      • Generous PTO / schedule flexibility
      • Chance to grow your role + raises (of course) as we grow the company
      • What to Expect

        • Small, pro team — been there, done that RE: enterprise software
        • Start out doing QA and learning to document bugs in the code... then graduate to development work
        • Clear direction and expectations
        • Chill leaders who only care about the work product
        • We also expect you to have a life outside of work — none of that "work is family" psyops stuff
        • Start Date

          • Assume April 1 but we can talk about it if you have a preference sooner or later

          How to Apply

          • Send an email to [email protected]
          • Include a short bio
          • link to your LinkedIn
          • link to your GitHub
          • Questions you have about the company or role
          • LSS,  this could be your vehicle for good work/life balance + feel good about the product you're building + respect for everyone you work with + opportunity to do something that benefits users in a real, tangible way that most software doesn't.
