Founded in 2014, we are a young company backed by top investors, including Y Combinator, SoftTech VC, Crosslink, Origin Ventures, and many others. We have had over $11 million in funding, and with around 55 employees in our centrally located office in San Francisco, we are looking to double in size this year. We are looking for colleagues who are excited about making an impact in a fast-paced and growing company with an extremely open and collaborative culture!








What you should bring:

    • 4+ years of industry experience, ideally working with Ruby on Rails but Python and server-side JS experience is welcome
    • Solid understanding of Agile development practices and Lean Software Development principles. You should be very efficient at understanding different use cases, prioritizing tasks, working with Git and implementing the GitHub flow. We ship new releases every day
    • Not afraid of taking risks, and vested in making our business a success, together

Nice to Have:

    • Open source contributions (please send a link to your GitHub profile)
    • Good knowledge of object-oriented patterns in Ruby — we think it is crucial to apply proper object-oriented principles to grow the application
    • Experience with modern JavaScript frameworks. React.js would be a huge plus
    • You are proficient enough to optimize relational databases (PostgreSQL 9.4+), using noSQL databases (we use Redis and ElasticSearch), and scale the application (we use Heroku). Good ElasticSearch knowledge and experience with maintaining performant PostgreSQL databases is a huge plus
