Ruby On Rails Developer

We are looking for an experienced Ruby Developer to join our small yet growing team of passionate technologists. This is a remote position but you will be required to work on US hours.

Our sites have millions of visitors monthly and your work will have a direct impact on visitors' experience. We wish to modernize our infrastructure to utilize the latest Ruby/Rails version. This position will entail making small changes to the existing site, migrating the code to an updated stack, and adding additional features to the site. 

The current stack is built on Ruby 2.2.10 and Rails 4.2.1. The backend is mostly Elasticsearch API, backed by CouchDB. Experience with all of these is a requirement, and experience in modernizing this stack is a super plus. 

This position is project-based, but there is scope for this to lead to a long-term partnership with you to continue leading developing this application.

Must-haves:

  • An analytical mind that can look at unique problems and come up with novel solutions
  • Experience with software development & deployment best practices - we use Capistrano currently
  • Eye for end-user experience and design
  • Knowledge of JavaScript tools - Gulp, Webpack, Bower, testing platforms, etc
  • Educated and passionate views on technology and software design to bring to the table
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills

Nice to haves:

  • Contributions to open-source projects or your own personal projects
  • Build and deployment automation experience
  • Experience with browser automation for testing

Required for the application:

  • Your GitHub/Gitlab username or other personal code to demonstrate your knowledge and work
  • A summary of a cool feature you built for a website in the past
  • A cover letter outlining your compatibility for this role and why you would be a good fit
