You think Rails rocks and you rock Rails, are intensely curious about all things technical and love to figure out how things work under the hood, handle development surprises with “I can fix that”, love to share your knowledge with the rest of our team, and can’t wait to be surprised with what they can teach/show you. You’re a full stack developer (Rails, JavaScript, CSS, HTML5, SQL) and you wouldn’t think of working anywhere that doesn’t do test-driven development.

If we just described you, then we really want you to be part of our team. We are using the latest versions of Ruby and RoR, agile development, paired programming (when it’s the right thing to do), TDD, and big enough data to make it challenging (hey, we’re not Facebook).

The Job
  • Develop our industry leading email marketing and social platform
  • Full stack development – from the database all the way out to the browser
  • Develop and maintain test cases using Rspec, jasmine or similar tools
  • Support open source projects with bug fixes and feature development pull requests
  • Share your knowledge with rest of the team

Your Skills
  • Killer abilities with Ruby on Rails and Postgres stack
  • The more JavaScript skills, the better
  • OO design skills
  • Experience with complex server systems that serve high-volume consumer sites
  • An understanding of issues involving sending and processing high volumes of emails would be a big plus
  • Must be an energetic 'self-starter' with the ability to take ownership and be accountable for deliverables
  • Obsessive about learning the newest technology tricks and sharing your intellectual gems with others
  • Proven success in leadership roles is a plus
  • A sense of humor is essential, trust us ;-)
  • Proof of eligibility to work in the United States

About the team:
You’ll join a group that loves to learn the newest technology tricks and sharing those intellectual gems across the team. If you’re intensely curious about all things technical and are obsessed with figuring out how things work under the hood, you’ll fit right in. You’ll work with full-stack developers, engineers and other uber-smart folks who wouldn’t think of working anywhere that doesn’t do test-driven development. We work with the latest versions of Ruby and RoR, JavaScript, HTML5, SQL, agile development, paired programming (when it’s the right thing to do), TDD, and big enough data to make it challenging (hey, we’re not Facebook).
