  • You have worked directly with non-devs (designers, PMs, user researchers, etc.) to ship great products
  • You believe in the value of mentorship, and in a teaching and learning culture
  • You want to grow, and you're constantly finding small ways to improve all the work you and your teammates do
  • You are passionate about building using Agile and Lean methodologies

Ideally, you'd have:

  • You are a hands-on, technical leader with 5+ years of professional coding experience 
  • You have experience building and mentoring agile development teams, and creating agile development processes
  • You have been responsible for leading a team of developers

  • Experience transforming large Rails apps into a service-oriented or microservice architecture
  • Strong focus on the people who use your software, even when it makes things harder

About the team:

  • We mostly run Ruby on Rails, but have brought in technologies like Elixir, Node, and Rust - We're open to using the right technologies for what we build
  • We iterate quickly and ship multiple times a day
  • We’re running an entirely dockerized deployment system, and we’re always making improvements to help our teams ship safer, and more quickly
  • We work in small, distributed teams with product managers and designers and help shape the products we build
  • We have a strong tradition of supporting open source software. resque_scheduler, robut, resque_unit, and JSON API client were all extracted from our codebase, and we've contributed patches back to Rails
