About The Role

You'll have the opportunity to lead a team of highly skilled developers to build enterprise SaaS applications using Ruby on Rails and other modern web technologies. You'll help your team focus on continuous improvement, code quality, good security, and software craftsmanship. You'll also share your passion for web development with junior engineers. As the lines between development and operations become more blurred you’ll collaborate closely with our Infrastructure and Security teams to build code that is resilient, secure, maintainable, and performant.

How You'll Make An Impact

You will play a pivotal role on a small agile team of talented engineers focused on building cloud-based, cutting-edge solutions for our client-partners.

  • Minimum: 5 years of professional development experience using Ruby, Java, or other OO language
  • Computer Science, Computer Engineering or related degree
  • Relational database design as well as proficiency in SQL (preferably PostgreSQL)
  • Your drive for action and experience solving problems in a fast-paced environment
  • Experience working through and on performance issues, tuning, scaling and security when working on the web.
  • RSpec or relevant testing framework
  • Object Oriented JavaScript and/or React
  • Use Agile methodologies to maximize developer productivity
  • Full Stack Development (RESTful API development would be considered a big plus)
  • Experience using non-relational data stores (Redis, Memcached, Elasticsearch, etc)
  • A desire to share knowledge and help others on your team grow
  • Ability to troubleshoot Linux OS related issues using common command line tools.
  • Deep understanding of cloud infrastructure (AWS, Google Cloud, etc)
  • Experience designing and deploying SOA or microservices architectures.
  • Experience leading technical teams
