Hi Senior Rails Dev

If you've worked for 4+ years with Rails, JS, and React and are interested in serious architecture challenges in a fast-moving environment that helps UX researchers around the world, join the Ethnio team! Elegant code and complex UX / design problems, all from pretty much anywhere in the world. 

The focus for this engineering position is back-end Rails development. You’ll be working with our two developers in Minsk, and directly collaborating alongside the three team members in L.A. Daily standup Zoom @ 8am CA time. Some fairly large organizations ranging from Netflix to the IRS have our JS on their sites so deep JS and React experience is a must. 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.

You'll Need

  • 4+ years working as a full-stack engineer working with Rails, tons of JS, and React. Especially setting up new environments and getting to know an existing codebase.
  • An appreciation for design and architecture.
  • Strong English. 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 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.

What We Offer

  • Full-time salary position commensurate with experience.

  • Full Benefits in any state in the US including Anthem Gold PPO/EPO, Dental, and Vision, plus coverage for dependents. 

  • Paid vacation accrual incentive that begins with two weeks vacation your first year, adding one additional week of paid vacation each year thereafter.

  • Flexible work hours and location.

  • In addition to our vacation accrual policy, employees are provided 5 sick days, and 10 paid holidays.

  • Equity is offered on a four-year vesting schedule, which begins to accrue after 12 months. 

  • Co-working close to your neighborhood wherever that may be. 

  • Revenue-sharing bonus EOY based on company and individual performance.

How to Apply 

Send us an email that shows you checked out our company, and is not the exact same email you sent to some other, far more boring company. Mostly want to see the links to your Github / LinkedIn / Etc profiles, but attachments for your resume are fine (PDF, etc.) or links to related work.
