Ruby Engineer

Remote - UK Full Time
£90K - £100K
We are offering this role as full remote as long as your timezone is within 2 hours of London/GMT

char.gy has come from humble beginnings in June 2016 - from a prototype in a cardboard box; to a metal box; to a 3D printed metal enclosure; to a sand-cast enclosure; to a die-cast aluminium enclosure certified to ISO 61851. We were the first lamppost mounted public charge point in the UK. A large proportion of the cost of installing a charge point is digging up the road and laying cables. Reusing the existing power supply in lampposts dramatically reduces costs and enables drivers without off-street parking.

Remote working saves on commuting and gives us a calm space to work, but sometimes we like to meet face to face. We are offering this role as full remote as long as your timezone is within 2 hours of London/GMT. We're based in the UK but hire internationally via Remote.com.

You will:
  • Collaborate on the planning, design, build, and maintenance of char.gy’s platform
  • Debug and fix issues from charge point all the way to driver
  • Join a 2nd line on-call support rota
  • Contribute to tooling, process, and documentation

  • Have 4+ years of commercial Rails and SQL experience

  • Enjoy discussing the pros and cons of any design in a collaborative environment
  • Are comfortable working in an engineering team size of 5 this year and growing at roughly 2 people per year
  • Want to be part of the electric vehicle and green energy transformation
