About the Position:
As an Associate Full-Stack Software Engineer, you will help your team solve customer problems
and ship clean, maintainable code. In addition to shared backend services and front-end
interfaces, you'll contribute to our common libraries, pair with other developers, and strive to
make our software development process more efficient. You'll focus on the full depth of our
software stack, while also significantly growing your technical breadth.
You have 1 or more years of experience developing web apps in Ruby/Rails (preferred), Elixir/Phoenix, Django, Node or a similar MVC development framework
You have experience with testing and TDD, object-oriented design, and higher-level system design
You have worked directly with non-devs (designers, PMs, user researchers, etc.) to ship great products
You want to grow, and you're constantly finding small ways to improve all the work you and your teammates do
Ideally, you'd have:
A love of mentoring and being mentored. You live by the philosophy that everyone has something to teach you
You've contributed to or maintained open-source projects (Send us your GitHub profile!)
You have a passion for quality. You take pride in keeping your bug count low and your code quality high
You focus strongly on the people who use your software. Even when it makes things harder
About the team:
We mostly run Ruby on Rails, are actively investing in Elixir, and have brought in technologies like Go, Node, and Scala.
We're open to using the right technologies for what we build
We iterate quickly and ship multiple times a day
We're running an entirely dockerized deployment system, and we're always making improvements to help our teams ship safer, and more quickly.
We work in small teams with product managers and designers and help shape the products we build
We have a strong tradition of supporting open source software. resque_scheduler, robut, resque unit, and JSON API client were all extracted from our codebase, and we've contributed patches back to Rails

package (we pay 100% of our employee premium costs and 50% of their dependents - plus
100% of your medical deductible), free legal advice, an ORCA card, up to three weeks of
