Ruby Backend Software Engineer, Integrations

Published on March 21, 2024

Dealfront, born out of the merger between Echobot and Leadfeeder is the new go-to-market platform giving businesses everything they need to win leads and close deals.

We are a remote-first, international SaaS company helping businesses maximise their revenue potential in Europe and the US with our Go-To-Market SaaS Platform. We are the successful merger of Leadfeeder and Echobot, bringing two industry leaders together.
What makes us unique? With origins in Finland and Germany, the country with the highest privacy standards in Europe, Dealfront was born with compliance and transparency in its DNA. This ensures that our users know exactly where their data originated. Compliance does not affect companies' earnings.
We have over 270 dealfronters around the world in 40 countries. Join us and help us continue our mission to be the leading Go-To-Market platform that helps B2B companies win deals in Europe.
Position Overview 
We are organized in feature-oriented, cross-functional squads. Each squad is responsible for specific features of the product, and works tightly together with high autonomy.
We pride ourselves on keeping apps working smoothly, and the codebase tidy and well-tested. We dedicate time for upgrades, refactoring, and overall improvements for developer productivity and happiness.
We believe in listening to everyone's ideas and feedback – no matter what your role is, you get to have a say in the product and technical decisions of your squad.
Backend software engineers in the Integrations squad are responsible for the parts of the system that interact with third-party applications on the user’s behalf. For example, a user might send a lead from Dealfront to their CRM (say, Salesforce or Pipedrive), or wish to see which of their Mailchimp recipients has interacted with a certain page.
In practice, this means writing well-structured code that can be shared between integrations, dealing with multiple third-party APIs (and the problems that come with them), and handling large volumes of data. Our work connects Dealfront to the user’s workflow and processes, and so is of the utmost importance.
We work with a broad range of technologies including Ruby on Rails, Sidekiq, Redis, gRPC, Elasticsearch, Kubernetes as well as several AWS-managed databases and other services.
  • Build public and private APIs to support development of new features and products, coordinating with PMs and front-end developers

  • Use multiple relational and non-relational databases (including Elasticsearch/OpenSearch) to store our users’ data and metadata
  • Help our customer success engineering team resolve edge-cases and other issues on our users’ behalf (no matter how good our code, we are dealing with ever-changing third-party APIs!)
  • Use various APM tools to monitor performance and identify issues and ensure that proper alerting is in place
  • With the help of Site Reliability Engineers, use Terraform to update and extend our AWS-based infrastructure
  • Provide code reviews to your peers
  • 3+ years of experience writing maintainable and well-tested Ruby applications
  • Experience with relational and non-relational database technologies

  • Expertise in writing data-intensive, horizontally-scalable applications
  • Experience in designing and implementing APIs (especially using the JSON-API standard)
  • Knowledge and interests in DevOps, AWS, Terraform, Docker, Kubernetes
  • Experience with serverless computing (AWS stack in particular)
  • The chance to work with a very knowledgeable, high-achieving, and fun team
