We need a smart developer to help with performance optimisation and scaling for our microservice architecture of 17 loosely coupled Rails services. It’s in production, supporting multiple brands and driving millions of dollars of revenue every month from US sales.

We are a remote-first company with a globally distributed team of 65. We’re proud of the way we get great work done. Our clients love working with us and we partner with them on long-term projects. Are you looking for a new challenge? Want to learn from a team of experienced engineers? This is going to be good!

What do we offer?

  • Work as part of a talented, globally distributed, successful team

  • A focussed adherence to our agile/scrum processes (we really believe it helps getting good work done)

  • Hard problems to solve (you won't find all the answers on Stack Overflow) - and the opportunity to own the solutions

  • A great working atmosphere where you can share and learn with other smart people

  • The best-in-class toolsets: Slack, CI/CD with Docker etc

  • Meetups in our Barcelona offices for our remote folks

  • Competitive rates

  • A long term working relationship: at least a year working on this project, then others.

You'll be:

  • Working within a fast moving team (working 11am - 8pm Central European time)

  • Solving hard business logic with elegant software design

  • Ensuring the robustness, performance and failure characteristics of the system.

  • Writing well tested (rspec), defect free code with CI/CD

  • Taking ownership of production applications - managing issues, releases and ensuring quality

  • Occasionally going full stack and also building functionality for the SPAs in javascript (experience in node/react/backbone is useful) 

Good English verbal and written communication skills are essential. 

This is a contract position with a long term outlook (12 months+ full-time project) for the right candidate. We are looking for remote workers (most of the company is remote) or have openings based in our Barcelona office.
