We are looking for talented and passionate software developers to join UrbanBound. You'll be joining a team that has a history of building successful software products and businesses. We have a solid product to build upon, a list of customers (including multi-national brands) and are preparing for rapid growth as we innovate an industry that's ripe for disruption. We have an innovative and demanding environment where, refreshingly, people have just as high expectations of themselves as they have of others. Our product is built utilizing Ruby on Rails as well as front-end technologies such as jQuery and responsive design. Our software development practices are heavily influenced by Behavior Driven Development and Extreme Programming (XP) engineering practices. The product you will be working on is critical to our business. We don't compromise quality just to meet arbitrary deadlines. We hate technical debt and untested code. We follow Agile/Kanban practices and know it is better to delay a release until it's ready when necessary. Our user experience design philosophy is based on agile, lean and user centric design.

- Self motivated personality
- Seek to share knowledge and be a part of the Chicago technology community
