What we’re looking for
We are looking for a Senior Backend Developer to drive product development as we scale relationships with our enterprise customers. As a senior engineer on our team, you’ll play a key role in delivering an unparalleled customer experience.

But before worrying about the technical aspects of the job, we want a good teammate. It always starts with a great team. We will constantly be pushing you outside of your comfort zone, because that's where the magic happens. And when you're outside your comfort zone you, will stumble and skin your knee. That's where the team comes in - the safety net to help catch you and get you back on your feet.

If you’re interested in being a rapidly growing team that runs in React/ (Apollo) GraphQL/ RoR / Postgres, then I encourage you to peruse below.

Key Responsibilities
  • Empower other members of the product team. Help them grow both personally and professionally.
  • Communicate, communicate, communicate. You can never do it enough.
  • Help lead our sprint cadence, from planning to burn downs.
  • Ensure that our back end security posture follows the NIST security framework.
  • Know your own limitations. None of us are experts at everything. Know when to ask for help.
  • Empathy. Empathy with our customers. Value the user experience.
Skills & Qualifications
  • Bachelor’s in computer science or Computer Engineering or equivalent experience
  • Minimum 6+ years of related full-time experience
  • Demonstrated experience leading test-driven development
  • Experience with Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, Heroku, and AWS is required
  • Experience with React.JS and GraphQL is a plus, not required
  • Experience working in an agile development environment
