We're looking for a middle-level web developer with experience in Ruby and Ruby on Rails. We would love to work with a pro-active person, someone who not only solve tasks but suggests improvements on codebase level as well as on product and company level, someone who automate things and shares knowledge within the team on meetups and in chats. We are currently focusing on the candidates from the CIS region.
- Good knowledge of Ruby: OOP, meta-programming, common patterns.
- Advanced knowledge of Ruby on Rails: advanced ActiveRecord, CLI and generators, i18n, complex forms and controllers, security features.
- Knowledge of architecture patterns: different ways to organize business logic, state machines, API versioning, background jobs, caching, authorization.
- Experience with data modeling and working with databases.
- Advanced knowledge in writing tests: experience writing different kinds of tests, knowledge of good practices.
- Good knowledge of the stack we use: web, http protocol, networks.
- Advanced level of working with tools: Linux, CLI tools, git.
- Good written and spoken English: almost all the communications technical and non-technical are in English.
- Remote work. Good processes are something we've been working on for the last five years. It's a common comment that it requires a lot of self-discipline to work remotely. We believe it is more about good processes and habits.
- People first. We understand that "shit happens". Some days we just feel off, procrastinate instead of working, can't get anything done. We promote to take such days off and we never allow to work late hours or on weekends to make up.
- No work on weekends. We never agree when clients ask for overtime work. We offer to use our creativity to find out how we can launch on time w/o overtime: cut unimportant tasks from the scope, do something by hand at the beginning instead of automation, etc.
- Work as a team with clients. We care about the products we work on, it is unacceptable to just do what you've been told to do when you have concerns and others are not aware of them. We don't hide discussions of our mistakes from clients. It creates a lot of trust.
