Senior Ruby Back-End Engineer

Sr. Software Engineer for greenfield project at stable, 4 year old start-up.

My client is a 150 person start-up with around 35 people in engineering. They are extremely stable, having raised around $60m in funding to date and they are building an e-commerce suite of applications. 

They are hiring for a brand new engineering team that is building out a greenfield platform from scratch utilizing Ruby, Kafka, RabbitMQ, PostgreSQL, AWS, etc. 

What I really like about them is their engineering culture. Here are some highlights of that:

  • They have a very agile process with heavy code reviews, strong collaboration, tech talks, etc. 
  • They contribute to open source 
  • Engineers can attend a conference every year, and have a huge amount of intellectualism in general.
  • Every Friday they have "Engineering Time" which is akin to Google's 20% policy, where the engineers are able to work on whatever has not been prioritized, or they can prototype their new ideas, etc. 

What they are looking for:

  • CS Degree or related
  • 4+ years of experience building out complex and scaled web applications
  • Experience with modern tools like Ruby, Python, Node, Scala, etc.
