#About Reedsy
We’re here to give authors the tools and resources they need to create beautiful books. Our curated marketplace gathers the industry's best publishing professionals — the likes of Stephen King's designer, Neil Gaiman's editor or Walter Isaacson's publicist.

We’ve grown to a community of 500,000 authors and over 2,000 freelancers in just a few short years, while picking up a number of industry awards along the way 🏆

Want to help us? Cool, keep reading!

#Responsibilities:
We have built a number of products at Reedsy, including a marketplace (https://reedsy.com) and a book discovery platform (https://reedsy.com/discovery). We're currently building a new authentication app and an email marketing tool. We have a number of new features in the pipeline for each of those and we need your help!
Here's what you'll be doing:

  • Architect and develop highly scalable web applications;
  • Work closely with our designers and engineers to design, build, and ship new features from scratch;
  • Evaluate and improve the performance, durability, and security of applications in production;
  • Take ownership for your tasks and see features through from start to finish;
  • Build RESTful APIs.

#Requirements:

  • 5+ years with Ruby on Rails at production level
  • Experience with SQL (MySQL) and NoSQL (Redis) databases
  • Unit tests (RSpec) and QA testing tools and techniques
  • Git advanced knowledge
  • Strong emphasis with Object Oriented Design and Design Patterns
  • Experience doing A/B testing and using analytics tools
  • Perfectly fluent in English, great communication skills
  • Experience working remotely

#Bonus points:

  • Experience with Elasticsearch
  • Experience with deployment automation tools
  • A good dose of ambition, as well as a great sense of humour

#How to Apply
We currently receive over 30 applications every day, so generic messages almost never get a second look.

To stand out, make sure you:
1) Do some research on Reedsy and sign up to try the product;
2) Keep it sharp, short, and get across what matters to you. There’s no benefit to filing early or writing a novel. We value great writers, so take your time with the application. We’re giving you our full attention.
