Rails Developer

Job Description

Want to work on something worthwhile? Come help us change the way people view online giving and do some good for the world. We are looking for a Developer to join the team and work with our Rails stack. We are very buzzword compliant: Coffeescript, Backbone.js, ActiveRecord, AWS, EC2, RDS, ElasticSearch…

As a core member of the development team your responsibilities will include:

– completing user stories on features from front-end to back
– testing and QA
– pair programming
– taking an active role in the future of our product that means sitting with product and Designers on an almost daily basis to get the job done!

We’re looking for someone who:

– has battle scars from working with Rails, Coffeescript, RSpec,
Jasmine etc
– comfortable switching between front-end and back
– likes getting their hands dirty and hacking to find a solution to difficult problems
– sees software development as a craft and not just a job

Bonus points if you:

– have skills and interest in deployment environments
– have written Capistrano (or Fabric) scripts
– interested in performance tuning a Rails stack (caching etc…)
– have experience with newer Rails servers (Thin, Unicorn, Puma etc.)
– can write hubot scripts
