  • Suggest and implement scalability & productivity improvements
  • Collaborate with the rest of the team in weekly meetings, chat and code reviews
  • Develop new full-stack features from start to finish using the Shape Up method

  • Write high-quality and maintainable Ruby and Typescript code
  • Write high-quality documentation on our product’s architecture to assist collaboration

  • 5+ years of experience with Ruby on Rails
  • Fluent spoken and written English at a professional level.

  • Familiarity with PostgreSQL query optimization and scaling strategies
  • Past experience with complex upgrades and migrations
  • Prior experience as a software architect or technical lead
  • Strong analytical and debugging skills
  • Strong communication skills, able to recommend decisions using data and experience
