Rails Engineer

About the Team

The engineering team at Smile.io believes in being proud of your code, owning what you ship, and embracing new tools to increase developer happiness. We believe small, empowered teams can ship products with the highest impact. We're a small team of engineers working locally in Downtown Kitchener and remotely in Cyprus, Argentina & Romania. Once a year we also gather somewhere exotic for our yearly developer retreat - most recently this was Spain!

 

About the Job

You'll be helping us build new ways to help online businesses excite their customers. We currently power over 10,000 rewards programs, reaching tens of millions of customers, and serving 100k API request / hour. We're looking for Rails engineers who don't mind a bit of front-end action too. You'll be working with Rails, Postgresql and Redis on the backend, and the saviour that is Ember.js on the front-end - all hosted on Heroku to so we can focus on shipping a great product. We use Github, Slack, and CircleCI to communicate efficiently and ship code every day.

 

About You

You're an engineer who gets excited about turning ideas into reliable, production code. You appreciate clear code that can be read by others and yourself 6 months down the line. You enjoy collaborating with other developers, and get excited about thousands of people experiencing a feature you shipped just minutes ago.

 

You will be successful in this role if you

  • Enjoy helping others around you grow as developers and be successful
  • Can be autonomous and self-driven
  • Build software for fun
  • Web APIs are your friends
