Senior Backend Developer (Ruby)

At DBL we’re looking for a Senior Backend Developer (Ruby) to join our team.

About the job

We are a remote-first company builder working in the aviation and maritime industries. We’re currently hiring for a Tech Lead and a full-stack developer for a new SaaS product which will help ship owners optimize their emissions profile under various new regulations.

As a senior developer, you are someone who can see projects through from beginning to end, coach others, and self-manage. We’re looking for an eager person who can bring our team to the next level with their technical knowledge, people skills, and real-world experience.

On the technical side, we are looking for extensive experience building APIs (we use Ruby) and complex UIs (we use TypeScript and Vue/React). Experience with DevOps (AWS services, Terraform) is a plus but not required.

The Stack

  • Ruby and Sorbet as a backend language
  • Postgres, Redis
  • Amazon Web Services (RDS, ECS/Fargate, Cloudwatch)
  • Bonus: TypeScript, Vue or React, Tailwind CSS for frontend
  • Bonus: Experience building data pipelines
  • How we work

    • Our biweekly sprint planning call is our only regular meeting
    • For complex features, write a design doc before coding
    • All code goes through code review, reviews are split out evenly across the team
    • A dedicated “runner” fields ad-hoc requests and bug reports each week, so that everyone else can focus
    • We use Tuple for pair programming
    • About you

      ### Technical Skills Experience

      * You’ve built complex apps in a Ruby on Rails + modern frontend stack before, with a codebase optimized for performance and scale

      * You’ve designed shipped large applications with many components and data structures

      * You have a proven ability to design interfaces that stand the test of time, showing anticipation of future product changes

      * You have experience integrating complex third party APIs

      Personality

      • You are able to handle ambiguity, and can push projects forward even when there is not a clear best path
      • You see things through from start to finish
      • You can manage yourself but you also work well with others
      • Fluent English and an excellent communicator
      • Be sure to mention the word ADMIRING when applying to show you read the job post completely. This is a beta feature to avoid spam applicants. Companies can search these words to find applicants that read this and see they’re human.

        Salary and compensation

        $90,000 — $130,000/year

        Location

        Within ±3 Hours of CET
