About the job

We are Europe’s largest airlines’ innovation unit and work on a variety of innovative projects from new ways of booking flights to the future of climate-neutral flying.

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, extensive experience building high-traffic websites using Ruby and Ruby on Rails is a hard requirement. Experience with DevOps (AWS services, Terraform) is a plus but not required.

The Stack

  • Ruby on Rails backend we’re experimenting with Sorbet
  • Open API Specs for contract testing
  • Postgres
  • Terraform
  • Bonus: Amazon Web Services (RDS, ECS, Lambda, Cloudwatch)
  • Bonus: TypeScript, React/Vue
  • 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
      • You are able to successfully refactor existing code and get rid of tech debt without regressions
      • 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
        • A good sense of humor and a great team player
        • Fluent English and an excellent communicator
        • Compensation

          This is a full-time position and you can work from anywhere within ±6 hours of CET. The salary range is between $90 - 120k.
