Web Developer

Our business is built on our ability to present actionable information and to provide reliable, obvious, and convenient interfaces. You develop these interfaces with obsessive attention to functional as well as aesthetic detail. You’re test-driven, your controllers are skinny, REST is second nature, etc. You want to join a team of people like you, who are excited about working together in a fast-growing startup environment.

Key responsibilities include:
  • turn designer's comps into functioning (web) product
  • own bug and feature stories from inception through, prototyping, coding, deployment and acceptance testing
  • participate in the agile, story-based, test-driven development process
  • identify, recommend, and implement new web technologies
Paydici's web interface is key to our success and our Web Developers make sure that thing is smooth, fast and reliable.

Who We Are

Businesses of all kinds struggle with billing their customers, accepting payments, and offering modern conveniences like online account access and paperless billing. Paydici helps small and medium-size businesses take advantage of "utility grade" billing infrastructure off the shelf, by tying together a diverse set of banking technology, electronic payments, mail and remittance processing, accounting, and software endpoints into one hosted service. We’re passionate about helping our customers effortlessly send bills and collect money, and about providing a great user experience to our customer’s customer.

Paydici is revenue-focused and scrappy, well capitalized, and privately funded by professional investors. We’re out to build a great company here in Portland, Oregon with a tight-knit, high-performance team.

We work in a cool Old Town office in the center of a thriving entrepreneurial community. Our culture is casual, and our work schedules are flexible—get your work done and we’re happy. If you want to work from home or coffee shops part of the time, that’s fine. We’re bike & dog friendly (for the right bike and/or dog) and it’s close to great transportation, coffee, and food.

A natural outcome of our culture of accountability is our flexible vacation program. There is no fixed limit on vacation. The day-to-day team situation dictates what's appropriate. The right answer is what works for you two and the team. When your commitments are handled and you need a break: you take a break.
About Our Technology Stack

We love our tools: we code mostly in Ruby on Rails & JavaScript, plan with Pivotal Tracker, test with Test::Unit, Shoulda, and Cucumber, with help from Jenkins, and share work with GitHub. We use Backbone.js & Sass on the frontend, MySQL & Redis on the backend. We’re not dogmatic about any of these, though—we expect you’ll have your own favorites to add to our mix.

You Must Have
  • a sense of humor
  • self-direction
  • your own super-powers: work-related and non-work-related!

  • proven ability to implement site designs and to adhere to a style guide (provided)
  • solid grasp of HTML5 including the ability to implement responsive, usable interfaces in JavaScript
  • Ubuntu (or other Linux) programming environment experience

Bonus Points
  • solid understanding of web security
  • strong database skills
  • ability and desire to learn new programming languages

What We're Offering
