If you're excited at the opportunity to improve user experience primarily within the Ruby framework, please read on!
Who We Are Looking For
First, Design Pickle isn’t your average VC funded, grow-at-all-costs-for-the-TechCrunch-feature type of company. We’re self-funded, hard-working, creative-loving, and a beautifully diverse group of people from around the world.
Do we love pickles too? Most of us – but don’t stress. If pickles aren’t your thing, it is not a deal-breaker. We do look for a passion and interest in something though. Your unique self helps make us the great company we are today.
We stand by our vision, purpose and values, and these are mission-critical to how you show up every single day.
Specific to your role, we’re looking for individuals who…
Have at least 2 or more years of Ruby on Rails experience in a professional setting or relevant equivalent
Have a proven track record of getting things done, you’re organized as hell and completely goal and project oriented
Know how to handle high volume, consumer-facing websites. Even better if you have worked on subscription based sites or SaaS business structure
Excel at working independently and as a member of a small team
Possess the ability to clearly communicate and identify areas of improvement and provide appropriate solutions with code
Can show a breadth of technical knowledge which you use to contribute to the direction of other professional environments and developmental processes
Key Objectives and Responsibilities
As a fast-growing company, roles always evolve. However, we want you to know exactly what you’re walking into. In the first 90-days here is a preview of what’s expected:
Develop features using maintainable, readable, modular, and easy to change code
Release code that is free of errors
Continue to learn new technologies and techniques to improve the existing code base
Revamp features within our platform such as request form, file delivery system, and revision tags
Replace third-party softwares with similar function using in-house code
Benefits, Compensation Perks
Compensation is always paid at above market rate for your role. Specifics will be discussed with qualified applicants.
Additionally we offer:
3 weeks PTO
World-class creative office
Paid training personal development
New parent leave
