Senior Full-Stack Developer (Ruby/TypeScript)

We are a remote-first company builder working in the aviation and maritime industries. We're currently hiring for a Tech Lead and a full-stack developer for a new SaaS product which will help ship owners optimize their emissions profile under various new regulations.

As a senior developer, you are someone who can see projects through from beginning to end, coach others, and self-manage. We’re looking for an eager person who can bring our team to the next level with their technical knowledge, people skills, and real-world experience.

On the technical side, we are looking for extensive experience building APIs (we use Ruby) and complex UIs (we use TypeScript and Vue/React). Experience with DevOps (AWS services, Terraform) is a plus but not required.
The Stack

  • Ruby and Sorbet as a backend language
  • TypeScript, Vue or React, Tailwind CSS for frontend
  • Postgres, Redis
  • Amazon Web Services (RDS, ECS/Fargate, Cloudwatch)
  • Open API Specs for contract testing
  • Bonus: Experience building data pipelines
How we work

  • Our biweekly sprint planning call is our only regular meeting
  • For complex features, write a design doc before coding
  • All code goes through code review, reviews are split out evenly across the team
  • A dedicated "runner" fields ad-hoc requests and bug reports each week, so that everyone else can focus

  • We use Tuple for pair programming
