If you're interested in working on large-scale architecture in a fast-moving environment that helps UX researchers around the world, come join the Ethnio team! Help us create elegant code and solve complex UX / system problems, all from pretty much anywhere in the U.S.
The focus for this engineering position is back-end Rails development. You’ll be working with our three distributed developers, and directly collaborating alongside the three team members in L.A. Some fairly large organizations ranging from Netflix to the IRS have our JS on their sites or implemented Ethnio in their iOS/Android apps, which means the ideal candidate would enjoy working on large-scale traffic tasks. Ethnio gets in the ballpark of 500M pageviews per month, and has done a lot of optimization to maintain reliability, security, and stability at the Enterprise level while being really ridiculously lean.
- 4+ years working as a full-stack engineer. Especially setting up new environments and getting to know an existing codebase.
- An appreciation for design and architecture.
- Interest in DevOps and Security, although that's by no means the focus of this position. We happen to be going through SOC2 Type 1 & Type 2, so if you've ever dealt with that pain, great.
Strong communication skills. Ability to work well with our 2-3 remote engineers, and work with our founder, product specialist, and director of customer engagement in LA. Related: that's our entire company.
Hands-on and self-directed entrepreneurial experience in a fast-paced environment, small business or startup a plus.
BS/MS in Computer Science or related field.
Comprehensive knowledge of Ruby/Ruby on Rails, and some experience with Nginx, React, Unicorn, Redis, PostgreSQL, APIs, LOL/ASAP/WTF (just seeing if you're still reading here). We're currently running Rails 22.214.171.124 on Ruby 2.51 on Nginx 1.10.3 and Puma with PostgreSQL 9.5.9 and Redis. We’ve used AngularJS for some navigation, editing questions, scheduling and recruits pages. We use Rails caching based on Redis to show screeners and on marketing pages. Elastic search is our search engine in Pool. Finally, using Sidekiq for background processing.
SaaS experience is a plus.

How to Apply
