We're looking for creative server-side software developers

Join our back-end teams building user-friendly online services for consumers. We use a micro-services architecture with a broad range of different technology stacks and high levels of automated test coverage. The majority of our back-end is written in Ruby.

Highlights

  • Scale and performance challenges. Handle tens of thousands of rpm, scale across geographically distributed datacenters, solve complex computational tasks quickly, and be highly available.
  • Security. We work with world-class penetration testers.
  • API design. We have client-side apps for Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, Linux, routers, and browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Keep the API designs simple and meet the various requirements for our apps.
  • Split-testing. We make heavy use of A/B testing to optimize our front-end for sales conversions. We have enough volume to often get significant results within one day.

Responsibilities

  • Your responsibilities may cover systems that each bring their own set of interesting technical and design challenges, especially around scale, security, and availability.
  • Continuous Delivery. All logic is tested automatically. We deploy multiple times per day. We often use TDD.
  • Microservices architecture. We can pick the right stack for each individual application. Currently those involve combinations of Ruby, Go, Node.JS, C, mySQL, Postgres, Redis, MongoDB, RabbitMQ, Docker, Chef and Ansible.
  • Code-reviews. We invest in spreading knowledge around the team, and keeping our code easy to read, test, and maintain.

Requirements

  • You love to solve problems, you’re excited about building well-designed systems, eager to learn and continually improve your skills.
  • You take great pride in the quality of your code
  • Expert in at least one modern server-side language. You test your code primarily with automation.
  • Eager to learn some Ruby (you’ll see a lot of it here, though it won’t necessarily be your primary language)

Optional

  • Nice to have: Experience building high-load scalable systems
  • Nice to have: Devops experience (Linux, Docker, Nginx, Ansible, Kubernetes, Terraform, Cloud-based Databases, Queues)
  • In general, we’re looking for someone with raw smarts and potential who can easily learn the specific skills needed for our work.
  • We’re open to candidates with various levels of experience. From junior to very senior, come talk to us!

What we offer

  • Challenging work in a fun and collaborative environment
  • Attractive compensation and time-off benefits
  • Spacious open-concept and centrally located offices
  • Full-time employment with flexible working hours
  • Fully stocked pantry with fresh fruit and snacks
  • Team lunches and company events every quarter
  • Multicultural teams represented by 30+ nationalities
