Full Stack Software Engineer (Ruby On Rails)

Position Summary 
You will work on small teams to build scalable infrastructure for our government -- designing, implementing, and delivering services that millions of Americans depend on. You care deeply about working on technology that improves people’s lives, but don’t think technology is always the answer. You are passionate about building large-scale systems that are inclusive, well-designed, fast, scalable, and secure, and you'll help set high standards for our teams in terms of simplicity, empathy, and accessibility.

The full stack engineer in this role will be responsible for developing end to end systems for one of Nava's major government partners. The objective is to modernize an existing legacy enterprise platform to improve its public facing processes, and experiences which will enable users to have more access to the programs and services that they need, in real-time, in a more user friendly and uncomplicated way. This individual will be involved in everything, from strategy, and planning through to post production testing, and support.

What you'll do

  • Working with fellow Nava engineers to design, review, and build well-crafted software.
  • Collaborate with government partners and other contractors to architect, implement, and deploy new systems and improvements to existing systems.
  • Working in an agile manner to efficiently ship new features that meet user needs.
  • Creating tools and processes to automate our development, testing, and production workflows.
  • Writing and reviewing technical documentation, performing code reviews.
  • Participating in an on-call rotation to support production systems and investigate issues when they occur.
  • Taking part in hiring activities (e.g., submitting referrals, conducting interviews, and attending interview debriefs), as needed.

Required Experience & Skills

  • At least 3 years of experience as a full stack engineer contributing equally to front-end and back-end design and development initiatives, in a fast paced, dynamic environment in a self directed manner, that required minimal supervision.
  • At least 3 years of professional experience building modern web applications that are highly scalable, available, and performant, using languages and cloud frameworks such as Java, C#, Python, React, Node, AWS, AWS Lambda, and Azure. Ruby on Rails experience is a must have.
  • Experience implementing RESTful and WebAPIs that can support interoperability with multiple systems. 
  • Experience developing modularized code using modern agile practices, and automated testing, including unit, integration, and accessibility tests.
  • A working understanding of CI/CD tools such as Jenkins, CircleCI or equivalent.
  • Strong familiarity of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA standards to deliver digital services that are not just minimally accessible, but a simple and intuitive experience for all users, including those who rely on assistive technologies such as screen readers.
