Job Description

Why You:
You are looking for something more from your job. Maybe a bigger problem to solve with both immediate and long term impact, or perhaps you just need a mission you can believe in everyday. You are scrappy and collaborative while looking to join a supportive culture with a bias for action. You dig balanced startup life and can wrestle challenges with grace. You love big, interesting problems and bringing solutions to the masses while making sure it feels personal, authentic and connected. If this sounds like you, we'd like to talk.

●A focus on Ruby on Rails (RoR) for our backend or ReactJS for the frontend, or both!
●Ability to work with senior engineers on drafting and implementing feature design documents, and working with product designers to ensure our implementation matches pixel perfect mockups
●Collaborate with others in feature design document review and pull requests
●Comfortable using MySQL or formal BI tools to collect and use data to support business decisions
●Assist with bug triage steps all the way through resolution
●Resistance to complacency to help drive improvements in our processes to always ensure that we’re considering better ways to get things done, efficiently
●Pair programming with other developers and engineers

●2+ years of full-time experience on a production web application; venture backed startup experience preferred
●Experience using Git Flow for collaborative source code management (we use Github)
●Comfort working with abstract data types, knowing when to use which, when to use off the shelf, and when to build from scratch (and a huge preference to use off the shelf)
●A passion for self documenting code, through efficient naming, commenting, and a bias towards keeping things simple
