Sr. Ruby on Rails Backend Developer

They say debugging is like being a detective in a crime novel where you are also the murderer. In this role, you’re more like Mobius of the TVA in Loki. Confused? Let me explain. A key part of this role is establishing TDD practice in the team, including setting up test harnesses; tracking down and eliminating those bugs before they do any harm – can you say, ‘Wow’ like Owen Wilson?

If you’re a Ruby on Rails developer with over five years of experience who is confident in managing APIs, libraries, integrations, and frameworks then this role could be for you. You’d be working for a VC-backed growth marketing platform, and you can either work from their office in Austin, Texas, or anywhere else around the world
