Software Engineer (Ruby / React)

LeadSimple

Remote - Anywhere
Engineering works closely with our Product and Success teams to discover and deliver features that will make a real difference in a product our customers use every day.

Tech Stack
In 2019 we re-built our tech stack in a phased rewrite (rather than a big-bang project) to adopt React, Typescript, and Relay on the front-end, talking to a GraphQL API powered by Ruby on Rails. We have experience refactoring a large codebase, so we seek to move fast without creating technical debt (test coverage is important). We practice continuous deployment, dividing work into weekly sprints.

Team
We're a fully remote team working across 6 time zones, and we make heavy use of Slack and Zoom for communication throughout the day. We value work/life balance and work at a sane pace, 40 hour weeks, Monday - Friday. Our engineering team currently maintains 2-3 hours of overlap with US Pacific Time, to facilitate collaboration.

We prioritize customer impact across the organization. Our Success and Product teams work closely with end-users on a daily basis, using their feedback to refine our roadmap and assist Engineering in creating an exceptional product.

We're looking for motivated and productive team members to help accelerate progress on our roadmap. We're open to mid or senior roles at this time.
