We're looking for Rails engineers who don't mind a bit of front-end action too.

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 thrive on fast feedback loops & iterative development cycles.

- 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
- Challenge the norm and aren’t afraid to voice your opinion
- Ship code on the daily
