Remote Ruby on Rails Developer (US or Canada)

$80,000-$140,000 / YEAR

We are currently seeking a Ruby on Rails Developer. Experience working in front-end frameworks like React and Angular is also desirable (although the emphasis here is on Ruby/Rails). This is a remote position.

The ideal candidate is analytical, highly organized, and self-motivated with a proven track record in delivering modern application solutions (particularly Ruby or web-based technologies). Beyond strong technical skills, we are looking for someone with mature communication skills and the desire to be a part of a cooperative development effort.

Initially you’ll be part of a dedicated project team configuring and developing a custom health science platform for drug trials. This role will grow into opportunities to work on other tech stacks and other projects – as a small company you’ll always have opportunity to work on new challenges.

This might be a good fit for you if:

  • You enjoy working at small companies with close-knit teams
  • You consider yourself adaptive and enjoy wearing multiple hats
  • You consider software development a craft or discipline, and are interested in having that consideration shape your development activities
  • You like board games (no really, we have a board game night)

This probably isn’t a good fit if you:

  • Need a lot of structure or oversight to do your best work. Our remote environment requires team members to be able to tolerate ambiguity and be assertive and communicative when tasks are unclear.
  • Are really keenly interested in just one specific technology niche (nothing wrong with that – but you’ll probably get frustrated here)
  • Need “to be right” all the time. We’re a growing, collaborative team that frequently tries new approaches. Team members need to be open to taking risks and reasoning with one another.

Required Qualifications

  • 4+ years of experience as a software engineer/developer-using Ruby on Rails and related web technologies (HTML5, CSS3. Javascript, jQuery, and SQL).
  • Solid working knowledge of the Ruby language and the Rails framework.
  • Understanding of object-oriented design, design patterns and how they apply to Ruby.
  • Solid understanding of SQL and data modeling for scalability and performance
  • Experience creating RESTful APIs for integration with mobile apps and websites
  • Proficiency with Git as a source code management tool
  • Experience with Agile development methodologies
  • Experience with an Agile-based work tracking system such as Atlassian Jira, Assembla, or Rally

Desirable Qualifications

  • Experience with Javascript frameworks – Backbone.JS, Angular, React, Vue.js
  • Experience with Behavior Drive Development (BDD)
  • Solid understanding of one or more NOSQL databases – MongoDB, CouchDB, Cassandra, etc.
  • Knowledge of AWS, iOS SDK, Android SDK
