About The Role
At Tropic, we are building a different kind of engineering team, one that is optimized for developer happiness and productivity. We’ve done this by challenging the status quo of how teams and applications are built. 
From a technology perspective, we’ve embraced the conventions of Rails 7 and put the promise of Hotwire (Turbo/Stimulus) to the test. The results quickly spoke for themselves, and we’ve been able to build a modern, SPA-like experience all while using fundamentally simple full-stack web development principles. 
From a team perspective, we’ve chosen our tools and practices to be as lightweight as possible in order to maximize quality collaboration and deep work.
