Ruby on Rails Developer

We're looking for a Senior Backend Ruby-on-Rails Developer for one of our most fun clients. Not a good one – but an awesome one! We want people who can look at Neo's code from the Matrix: as a set of fun problems to be solved and processes to be optimized. 

You'll jump right in, taking on tasks that involve designing systems from scratch and maintaining a portfolio of highly trafficked applications from a major player in the entertainment industry. Do note that they have spicy content – nothing hardcore; they just like boobies. 

If you're interested in creating and growing exciting new products in the entertainment and pop culture space, we'd love to hear from you! 

Here are traits that they value: 

  • Self-Starter: You take the initiative, meet deadlines, and creatively solve problems.
  • Student: You always learn through reading, meet-ups, etc., and apply best practices whenever possible. 
  • Teacher: You command programming fundamentals and concepts and explain design patterns in developing OOP.
  • Craftsman: You strive to create code that is tested, maintainable, readable, and re-usable. 
  • Versatile: You have relevant experience in a wide range of technologies. 

 You should also be familiar with the following tools:

  • Highly skilled in Ruby and Ruby on Rails
  • Data modeling and database design
  • Building and integrating with APIs
  • Ecommerce and billing processor integrations
  • Application & Database architecture
  • Rspec testing

They practice Agile / Scrum product development, use JIRA, host daily stand-ups, and work in 2‐week sprints. 

 Bonus points:

  • Data analysis and visualization
  • Debugging experience during outages
  • Experience contributing to a high performing Agile Team
  • DevOps Experience

What you will be working on:

  • Integrating with third-party APIs
  • Legacy Billing and Authentication Systems
  • Authoring RSpec Tests to improve confidence levels
  • Data design and application architecture
  • Solving a variety of complex problems by utilizing your experience
  • Building highly performant queries and code

 Important Details:

  • You're looking for long-term stable employment (this is not a freelance job).
  • You're available with at least a 6-hour overlap of US Central time.
  • You have a quiet place to work.
  • You're comfortable working with adult content.

One VERY IMPORTANT THING: since this is a remote position, and communication is super important for us and our clients, you NEED to have access to high-quality internet all the time. If hamsters power your router, sorry, that doesn't work for us.

 Here Is What's In It For You:

  • You get to work from home. Goodbye, pants!*
  • Flexible hours. We care about you doing good work, not about how long you take. Spend more time with your family, friends, or LoL team.
  • Earn a highly competitive rate per hour.
  • No annoying time-tracking spy-software. We hate that stuff as much as you do. We trust you! Our clients trust you!
  • We're pretty fun people.

 *Please wear some pants during video conferencing.
