Software Developer

About the Role

Splay is a New York based creative consultancy offering a unique set of services to foster innovation and business growth for companies worldwide. Our proprietary suite of software and managed services are licensed to partners for specialty commerce at enterprise scale.

You will work alongside a very sharp and focused, distributed group of people who will be invested in you and your growth from day one.

We’re looking for a full-stack developer with ~3-4 years of Ruby on Rails proficiency to assist with the development and maintenance of our large-scale, high-volume e-commerce platform.

What we're expecting from you:

    • Be comfortable attending to (and improving) a large, existing Rails codebase in response to real-time requirement changes as well as longer-term initiatives. You’ll be writing new code and maintaining a large existing codebase.
    • Have an understanding of caching and performance techniques. Any systems that affect users must be designed and implemented with this in mind.
    • On the front-end, we actively maintain a wide range of Javascript across our platforms, going back to Backbone, up to newer builds using the latest Vue. We’re not married to any specific front-end framework— we use the right tool for the job.
    • You will be responsible for weekly business maintenance needs, as well as ongoing bug fixes. You must be a self-starter, you’ll be responsible for new and continuing projects. 
    • We expect you to have an interest in and understanding of current technology and development trends and forward-thinking solutions.
We'd best be described as "next generation e-commerce platform & managed services." Yes, we are intentional about our low profile. For some insight, check out our activities on our Instagram or Twitter.

We offer competitive compensation and some great perks. The range for this position is $115,000-$185,000 and we look at factors like your experience and technical aptitude to make our offer.

If you’d like to be considered, drop a line with a few words telling us why — please, no formal cover letters. Include links to your personal website, portfolio, Github, or any other relevant professional work.
