We're looking for someone who wants to be an early engineer at a rapidly growing, venture-backed company. “Rapid prototyping.” “Design sprints.” “User centric.” I’m sure you’re familiar with these terms. They’re supposed to help companies build things faster. The thing is: they don’t work if the user research process is too slow. We’re solving that problem.

Everyone works on the full stack and contributes to every aspect of the product life cycle. We are always looking to add more people to teach and learn from as we build our team and product.

Our stack starts with Ruby on Rails with a Postgres database hosted on Heroku. We use Resque with Redis for background job processing. React is used where needed and we are looking to use it more. We have recently started using Webpacker to manage our Javascript and CSS, but we use the asset pipeline on some pages. In both cases, we are using Bootstrap for basic layout concerns as well as SASS to help manage our CSS. We leverage RSpec for unit testing our Rails app.

-- (Ideally) Several years of industry experience with Ruby on Rails
-- Knowledge of React is a plus but any Javascript experience is useful
-- Start up experience is also a plus

Ideal Candidate Qualities:
-- Strong industry experience which can be added to our knowledge base
-- Ability to learn quickly and adjust based on new requirements and direction
-- A desire to influence the product in a meaningful way
-- Curiosity to constantly learn new better ways to build software
-- An interest to grow into a leadership position at a young software company

-- Opportunity to be an integral part of a growing software engineering team
-- Inside knowledge of a startup and how it operates as it grows
-- Meaningful input into the corporate culture of a young company
-- Serious growth opportunities within the development team
