Senior Ruby on Rails Developer

We're looking for an experienced and confident software developer to join us as a core member of the engineering team. You will be integral in building products that affect the daily lives of tens of thousands of users across a range of industries in new and exciting ways.

Our development team is very small, which means that even the traditional Agile methodologies are too much overhead for us. Think very low bureaucracy, very high influence (over code, but also product and strategy as well), fast deploy and feedback cycles, and lots of cross-company collaboration.

A few of our core team philosophies:

  • Ship code to production early & often
  • Strive to be T-shaped
  • Code is to be understood primarily by humans, not computers
  • Tests drive design and improve reliability and refactorability, and are as important as code
  • Iterate with small steps forward rather than trying to do everything at once
  • Code doesn't go into master till it's green, green code in master goes to production automatically

Some of what you'll be doing:

  • Gain extraordinary experience bringing a 3k-requests-per-minute-and-counting startup to scale
  • Build products that affect how tens of thousands of people find, work, and get paid for jobs
  • Have full ownership of major features from inception to production
  • Have autonomy to lead initiatives that are important to you
  • Advance your career with opportunities for team leadership and meaningful stake in company direction
  • Hang out in a laid-back and fun office right on the Brooklyn waterfront with a smart and friendly team

Qualifications:

  • Significant experience with web development and bringing software to production
  • Very strong proficiency in Ruby on Rails
  • Some experience managing software engineering teams
  • Strong object-oriented and functional architectural skills
  • A passion for learning, teaching, and helping others
  • BS, MS, or equivalent work experience in computer science or related field
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills

Bonus:

  • Experience or strong interest in front-end engineering (React.js)
  • Experience in DevOps (scaling systems above 3k requests per minute, health monitoring, etc.)
  • Experience in designing secure systems
