Were looking for a mid to senior Ruby developer to join our team.

Altmetric analyses the online activity around scholarly content to measure the broader impact of science and research. We deliver and support products such as the Altmetric details pages, Altmetric Explorer and the Altmetric badges. Our customers include institutions across Europe, North America and Australia and scholarly publishers such as Springer Nature, Wiley, Taylor & Francis and MIT Press.

We develop software in a friendly and flexible working environment, processing hundreds of thousands of scholarly mentions and serving over 45 million API requests every day.

Were currently based in The Smithson building, in Clerkenwell. As a portfolio company of Digital Science, we share our office with other scientific start-ups including figshare, Overleaf & Symplectic.

Benefits

As a company, work-life balance is very important to us: we have flexible working hours and our teams are setup to enable people to regularly work from home.

In order to create time for personal development, we hold hackdays every month for team members to explore new topics and technologies and work with people outside their usual product team. These projects range from building a prototype of something, experimenting with a new technology, online training, or just reading that software development book you never get around to during the week.

We offer a competitive market rate salary and all members of the team are provided with a MacBook Pro (we are happy to discuss your requirements before you join) and have an annual training & conference budget including international travel. We are users of open source software and we support this in any way we can. We also offer company benefits such as a personal pension plan, life assurance cover and a travel or bike loan.

Were proud to be an equal opportunity employer, which has given us a wide diversity of backgrounds throughout the team. This is something that Louise (our VP of Engineering), Ana (our CTO), and Kathy (our CEO) have always strived for and were certainly pleased with the progress so far.
