You will be responsible for developing the backend of the application. We use mainly Ruby on Rails and Postgresql. You will implement the different features and endpoints for our API. We have many different challenges that range from pure backend (implement metric calculations) to system administration (setting up a Docker infrastructure) or optimization (scale a database with millions of records). Hopefully, you are comfortable with a unix environment and you see the beauty in finding a simple solution to a problem.
You don’t have to know Rails or Ruby (apparently they don’t always come together). However, you must have some extensive experience with a language and you need to be able to learn Ruby and Rails quickly and eventually become great at it.
You value regular and transparent communication. You should also be comfortable (experience valued) working remotely or with a remote team. Our current product team includes: Luiz (Chicago), Chris (Colorado), Mikhail (Moscow) and Karel (depends when you read this). Feel free to join us in Chicago though!
