Full Stack Engineer


Remote - Anywhere

About the job
This job posting is for someone who is roughly in the
UTC+7 → UTC+13 timezone.

Software engineers at Discourse are generalists. Some days you may be working on a complex JavaScript feature implemented in Ember.js. Other days you may be working on our Ruby on Rails API server. Some days you may be contributing patches to frameworks or working on one of the many gems and libraries Discourse maintains.

The majority of the work you will do will be open source.

Discourse is primarily a hosting company: some of your focus will be around improving our hosting infrastructure, resolving issues for customers, or assisting with customer-specific implementations and migrations.

About you
You work well independently and remotely with minimal amounts of day-to-day micromanagement. You should be comfortable driving a feature from the design to the release. At Discourse the ability to communicate well in writing is paramount. Most of your interaction with team members will be in writing. You will also interact regularly with the public on https://meta.discourse.org. We have no central physical office, we have always been 100% remote.

You should be passionate about open source and comfortable with public code reviews. You should also be comfortable picking up and exploring new technologies as needed.

You have some Ruby and JavaScript experience; Discourse applications usually complete a paid trial project prior to joining the team.

You should be kind to your co-workers. We believe strongly in having a welcoming workplace where people with very diverse backgrounds and cultures meet together to create something great.

About us
There are many benefits to working at Discourse including a flexible work schedule, 5 weeks of holiday per year, funding for a co-working space, and more! Learn more.
