  • Improve the experience for our users, help them get the results they need.Detect opportunities to enhance and improve our stack.Extend the coverage of our API layer.Improve our existing products and internal systems. We want to learn from you as you learn from us.Prioritize and decide what features we should tackle next.

  • Rails 6 (although we started with Rails 1.2 in 2007)JS, Stimulus, CoffeeScript and SassBootstrap and jQueryPostgres and MySQLSinatra, Resque, Middlemanapp, Chef, Vagrant, Nginx, Unicorn,...
We're looking for a solid Rubyist with «adequate» experience who is comfortable in a 100% distributed team and is self-driven.

This is a full-time position for the right candidate and it has an immediate start date. Work 100% remotely on flexible schedule with reasonable overlap with EU business hours.

About you

Ideally you've held a remote position before, or you've held a similar position of responsibility in a traditional organisation but now are looking to improve your work-life balance.
You are a well-rounded individual, work is not everything in life, you may have a family and social life. You work hard when it's work time and are able to switch off when it isn't.
You're comfortable communicating with others verbally and in writing. Our team is spread across the world, and so are our users.
You are organised, like to be on top of your responsibilities and don't let things slip through the cracks. You will be sure to include the name of your favourite tv series as part of your application.
A knack for design / UX will be a plus. Background in Information Security wouldn't hurt either.
You believe in giving back to the community. We started with an open-source project and to this day we remain firm believers of open-source and giving back. Most of what you will be creating with the team will be released as open-source.
