Senior Full Stack Ruby and JavaScript Developer / Full time, fully remote

Published on May 01, 2024

We are Harley Therapy - established in 2006, and well-known as London's premium psychological therapy provider. We have a team of highly experienced psychotherapists, clinical and counselling psychologists and psychiatrists in central London. We also run the Harley Therapy Platform, which is the UK’s leading therapy platform with therapists practicing from their own rooms UK-wide.

This is a full-time position and long-term position, working fully remotely from anywhere in the UK to help improve all our software and websites, and in one case, help us rebuild the administrative system that helps our amazing admin team to manage clients and therapists.
We don’t really do meetings, and most discussions are performed asynchronously via Slack, tickets and pull requests. We also don’t do scrum, but we are probably as agile as you will ever see, because we are small and flexible.
You’ll be trusted to get s*** done in a relaxed environment and to get it done brilliantly. And you can trust us to give you some fun, exciting and [sometimes] challenging code to write, and problems to solve.
You are a senior-level developer with equally strong skills in Ruby and JavaScript, and at least 8 years of experience as a full-stack developer with Ruby, Rails, JavaScript, HTML and CSS.
You will have a hand in everything, and as we are a very small team, you will also have a say in everything related to the technology side of the company. This also means that you will be expected to take responsibility for the entire stack from server to client. It will be common for you to be asked to build a new feature, right the way through from spec, UI, server, client, testing, and of course deployment (we host on Heroku, with PostgreSQL, Sidekiq).
You will have an eye for good UX and great UI, and be able to know things like when to use a button or a link. You will also have knowledge of the web platform, as we lean more and more on it every day, using new API’s such as custom elements, and CSS nesting.
You will be an eager and passionate developer that loves what you do, and a fast learner that can hit the ground running without needing much of a hand to hold. A love of open-source software would be a great benefit to you - and us.
You can communicate well, and are proactive and an open, and free thinker. We need your expertise, opinions, and ideas. We like perfectionists, with all their imperfections.
To be considered for the role, we require a minimum of 8 years of experience in both RoR and JavaScript, as well as residency in the UK. If you do not meet these requirements, we kindly ask that you refrain from applying. Thank you for your understanding.
