Senior Ruby on Rails Backend Engineer


Who are we?

We will change forever the way people find the job they love. Job search
sucks. We are turning around the industry by matching people with
relevant jobs automatically so they will never miss a great job
opportunity again.

We recently raised a further $25M from top VC investors to accelerate
our growth and global expansion further.

jobandtalent is growing, and it’s growing fast. We already have over
four million users, and we are aiming for 10 million users worldwide, by
he end of the year.

How we work

At jobandtalent we strive to create a work environment based on trust,
transparency, team collaboration and continuous improvement of our
collective skill set.

We like building things and solving problems. And we try very hard to
provide the best tools and environment to solve those problems.

Our teams are small, multidisciplinary, and product focused. We take a
very lean approach at improving jobandtalent and achieving our goals. We
keep bureaucracy out of the equation and always choose metrics-backed

How we have fun

A great working environment and how well we get along is what everybody
notices when they first come into our offices.

And we want to keep it that way as we grow as a company: by organizing
regular team events, including yearly offsites (last one in Marbella);
hosting our increasingly common Pizza Fridays or setting up and
supporting The JT Football Teams.

But basically we have fun every day, enjoy our work, and add fun as a
factor to everything we do.
