||They believe in diversity and hiring people from all backgrounds and walks of life (it makes their company parties more exciting!). You must be energetic, inventive, a team player and looking to help build and grow the company each and every day. You must have an inner desire to win and the idea of losing is a non-starter. Please note, if you need direct supervision or constant instructions on what to do next, this position probably isn't for you. However, if you are looking for a position that allows you to work with a group of smart and dedicated people who will support you but still provide the autonomy you need to execute your strategy, then you should probably apply as soon as you're done reading this!
In their team of developers, every developer has some ownership of a portion of their architecture. There are several different applications, all with a roadmap of features and fixes that you can sink your teeth into. These range from our main Rails application (Rails, Unicorn, Nginx) to data collection and archiving (Redis, ElasticSearch, MySQL, Mongo, etc.). Most of their development is done in Ruby but we do have portions written in other languages as well (PHP, Go, Elixir, etc).
They are looking for someone with a BS or MS in Computer Science, Math, Engineering or even a Ruby-centric developer bootcamp. You should also have 1+ years of professional full-stack Ruby experience and have a good grasp of the language and the interpreter. You should have familiarity with Ruby frameworks other than Rails (Sinatra, Padrino, EventMachine, etc.). You should be comfortable working with various databases and picking up new technologies. They build on and deploy to Unix-based operating systems and we also rely on Docker/Kubernetes for many of our applications. You should always want to be learning and taking the initiative to teach yourself cutting edge tech. Performance optimizations, experimenting with new features, splitting big applications into smaller apps, and rapidly iterating on a piece of code should excite you.
