  • Expertise with modern developer workflows and tool chains (Git, CI/CD, Webpack, Babel)

  • Extensive knowledge of testing best practices at all layers

  • Extensive knowledge of object-oriented and functional programming concepts and design patterns

  • Experience designing and managing complex relational database structures

  • Experience working on an established product with real users 

  • Your philosophy aligns with Agile methodologies and processes

  • Confidence pairing with other engineers of all levels

What Will Make You Stand Out:

  • Significant experience building APIs and services with Ruby on Rails

  • Experience supporting the advancement of a monolith app to modern architectures

  • Experience with enterprise SaaS instrumentation products such as New Relic or Elastic

  • Experience with 2 or more additional core technologies (Elixir / Python / Go / React)

  • A reputation for superb communication skills with other engineers and teammates
