Who you are
You are a competent engineer that thrives on building things with real-world applications. You have a can-do-anything attitude, and are ready to tackle tough assignments. You know when to code things quickly and when to take the time to make sure things are reliable, you know your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and limits. You consider yourself a nimble learner, you’re willing to take on unfamiliar tasks, extract lessons and learn from failures and mistakes.
Coworkers would describe you as a flexible, open communicator that can balance taking action with driving results and you know/can clearly articulate the difference. You are also someone who takes personal responsibility for your work and holds others accountable to do the same.
You are passionate about designing systems that power great end-user experiences. You care deeply about system performance, especially where it impacts customers. You enjoy discussing these decisions with your peers and can explain their significance to external stakeholders.
You have three or more years of experience working on a team that uses Ruby on Rails. We write most of our core systems in Ruby, but we also use ElasticSearch, MySQL, PostgreSQL. We would be really impressed if you had experience with AWS, ElasticSearch or other eCommerce experience.
What the role is
