The short version:

Hi! We're hiring a Ruby Engineer here at SocialChorus to work onsite at our office in San Francisco, CA. This is a full time, regular position. We offer a market rate salary and the following: stock options, medical & dental (we pay 100% of premiums), 401k. We actively promote diversity and encourage all qualified candidates to apply.

The company:

SocialChorus is the leading advocate marketing solution for brands that people love. Our solution combines the power or advocate marketing with the scale and measurability of social networks to deliver endorsements to millions of consumers, creating measurable social ROI.

Our customers, including Mondelez International, PepsiCo, Kia and dozens of other leading brands, inspire advocates to deliver social endorsements across all social channels creating social engagement and website traffic that creates new customers. SocialChorus' cloud-based platform and expert services provide all that a brand needs to increase social engagement and acquire new customers. Our customers' advocate programs are up-and-running in just days and deliver social ROI in weeks.

The team:

As of today, there are 8 engineers on the team (4 women, 4 men) led by Kane, our CTO. We enjoy working in an Agile way; we do quite a bit of pair programming, test driven development, and refactoring. There's also a nice balance between the how much we produce, the quality of our work, the fun we have as a team, and our ability to have lives outside of the office!

The role:

We need an Ruby Engineer with decent chops in JavaScript. While we do use Rails, we prefer pure Ruby when it's an option. Lately we've been using Backbone.js and Node.js where it makes sense.

Stuff you'll be working on:

Building standalone web services as we grow. For example, a few months ago we needed to add functionality for our influencer app. We broke off a piece of code from our gnarled legacy Rails app and turned it into a shiny new Backbone.js app with great test coverage. We're quite proud of how well we've been able to increase our velocity while doing some heavy refactoring.

We're currently building a REST API from the ground up. Our customers are quite excited about being able to transition from daily data dumps via spreadsheets to accessing their information on the fly and analyzing it in real time. This will be a fun project for people who enjoy how big data is used.

Exploring new technology options is a normal part of life here; we like using the best tool for the job. We're currently building an app in Node.js, our API is being written in a Ruby DSL called Grape, and anything else that makes sense is fair game. This includes traveling to your favorite tech conferences on our dime!
