Overview

EveryoneSocial is looking for an experienced, backend Ruby on Rails developer to join our engineering team.  This is a full-time, W2 position.  We’re a distributed team, and we work remotely in the United States.  If you’re near Salt Lake City, UT or Salem, OR, so much the better.

 

Requirements:

  • You are an experienced Rails developer- our primary application is Rails 4.1 with Backbone and Ember frontends.  We are looking for someone to focus on the backend, but if you have frontend JavaScript experience, that’s great.
  • You have a proven track record delivering production-quality applications in similar environments.
  • You have a passion for developing, releasing, and maintaining web applications.  We don’t just throw our code over the wall to ops – we are responsible for it until it’s removed from the repo.  We release multiple times per week.
  • We practice “little-a” agile.  You should be comfortable working with stories/cards and delivering value to users early and often.
  • Although we’re not dogmatic about it, we love automated tests. We fix the build when it breaks, and so should you.
  • You’re comfortable working on a distributed team.  You know how to collaborate with team members using Skype, Slack, email, and sometimes even a phone.
  • You’re comfortable working in a dynamic environment.  You need to be able to collaborate with other developers on things as they evolve.  Things change rapidly in our world, and we need to be able to roll with the punches.
  • You’re always looking to learn new things – languages, databases, frameworks, etc.

 

Skills:

  • Obviously, you know Ruby and Rails – at least 4 years of professional experience.   Knowledge of other languages and systems is always appreciated.
  • Experience with MySQL or similar relational database like PostgreSQL
  • Strong communication skills, especially with remote co-workers
  • Experience using and configuring Unix-like systems – MacOS, Linux, etc.

 

EveryoneSocial Perks:

  • Medical and dental insurance
  • Competitive compensation plan
  • Ground floor opportunity – as a member of our small team, you’ll shape the business direction of the company.
