- Build robust, well-designed and effective software that solves complex problems.
- Test, review and deploy code quickly. Our team is exceptional and we TDD most changes, so we don’t slow ourselves down with excessive release processes or meetings. We deploy over 5 times per day and manage major releases with feature flags rather than coordinated deployments.
- Research, learn and share new techniques for solving complex engineering problems. We’re a highly collaborative team and we push each other to find better solutions every day.
- Write tools and develop practices for the engineering team. From GraphQL-to-Typescript compilers to fully automated deployments, we take the time to invest heavily in our own productivity.
- Own projects from end-to-end. On a given day you might be building a system to measure search engine performance, reworking an integration with a telephony provider, or designing a UI component library.
- Analyze and design solutions to business problems. Companies that throw solutions over the wall to engineers are wasting half their abilities. At Tegus, you’ll be fully involved in determining what to do, not just doing it.
- You’re motivated and eager to learn. Software and technology rapidly change.
- You have a team-first mentality and you work collaboratively with different stakeholders to set the technical direction for our products, developing easy-to-use solutions for our customers.
- You have deep empathy for users and use it to help build products customers love.
- You take pride in working on projects to successful completion involving a wide variety of technologies and systems.
- You’re excited to own projects from beginning to end. We believe in hiring great people and getting out of their way.
- Experience as a generalist working on both the frontend, backend, and anything it takes to solve problems and delight users both internally and externally.
- Experience with Ruby on Rails, Vue or Typescript is a plus but not at all required.
- Familiarity with Agile software development processes and software testing.
- Ability and desire to work in an open and team-oriented environment.
