Apply on WeWorkRemotely

Headquarters: Adelaide, South Australia, Australia URL:

An awesome job for a confident RoR developer passionate about building a great product, in a successful VC funded Australian startup. Work with the Founders in Adelaide & Melbourne, and our team of in-house RoR engineers in Singapore, Thailand, Bali & Australia to continually build new features and improve existing UX.

As a little background, Bluethumb is Australia's largest online art marketplace. We have over 17,000 artists and sell their art directly to collectors. We are passionate about building incredible tech, our user testing program, and building whatever we need to grow.


🎸 Experience

At least 2 years of trackable production Ruby on Rails experience (boot camps are not considered as such). To succeed in this role, along with Ruby and Rails, you will be confident and experienced in front-end development and ideally also have knowledge in DevOps, QA, or Data Science.

⚒️ Tech stack

All our developers are full-stack and get really varied new experience; with a mix of front-end (solid level Vanilla and Vue.js), back-end (Ruby, Rails, Hanami), and DevOps (Docker Swarm/AWS), doing short sprints and bigger projects. Our ideal candidate:

- Ruby on Rails savvy

- Confident using Slim templates engine, CSS/SCSS/Tailwind, Vanilla JS/UJS/Vue.js

- Has production experience with Elasticsearch and Postgres

- Can demonstrate an advanced level of rspec usage

- Familiar with giving and taking code reviews

- Comfortable with occasional pair programming

- Ready to adjust to development guidelines

🌏 Location

This can be a remote role, but you MUST be located in a similar timezone to Australia (AEST) with at least 5 hours overlap (please check for comparison). We have offices in Adelaide & Melbourne, so bonus points if you are in either of these two cities.

✏️ Application

Please send an application tailored to this position that speaks to us. Introduce yourself as a colleague. Show us you are genuinely interested in a future with Bluethumb. We value great writers, so please do take your time with the application. Forget that generic resume. There's no prize for being the first to submit! We'd like to see examples of software you've written. The actual code. We appreciate that it can be hard to share representative samples when you've been working on commercial software, so anything you can scrape together will be good. If you have open source contributions, those are great candidates, but you don't have to be an open-source contributor to apply.


Bluethumb is one of Australia's most exciting creative technology companies and Australia's largest online art marketplace, which is VC funded and has been growing strongly now for over 7 years. We are a custom RoR website with a native iOS app. You'll work in a small team of awesome engineers focussed on shipping great product, in a complex environment.

Work in a fun, friendly team with heaps of experience. We work on a level playing field across the engineering team and directly with the founders. There's no bureaucracy.

Flexible work hours. We work hard but don't deploy on Fridays!

Balanced workload using Trello to easily manage all tasks & projects.

Although we utilize RoR as our pillars we also experiment with other solutions if they prove worthy.

We're no longer an early-stage startup, there's more security, but we're still growing very fast and there is plenty of low hanging fruits. Sometimes small changes have a big impact which makes this work really rewarding.

The work you do helps Australian artists build their careers. Many have made their career break on Bluethumb and rely on it for a living. The tech we build is very valuable.

No recruiter applications or agencies please.
