Backend Developer / Pixformance Sports GmbH
Pixformance Sports GmbH
We're looking for a motivated Rails developer that can help us build the best Fitness experience possible. We want to change the way people do workouts by giving them instant Feedback while they're working out, and provide them with extremely detailed information on our web platform. About us We are an exciting start-up based in Berlin, building specialised visualisation and analysis software for the new and thrilling field of Kinect-based motion data for fitness training. We are completely backed by amazing VC investors from California and we are already supplying our stations to one of the biggest fitness chains in Germany and to other customers around the world. We are currently scaling up to deploying hundreds of hardware stations per month. We have a small, but world-class team of experienced software engineers. Our work has been recognized with the innovation award at FIBO, the leading international trade show for fitness, wellness and health in Europe. The Position You would join our Backend Ruby on Rails Team and help us build, improve, scale, test and maintain our Backend system which is basically the brain of everything. This is the part of our Product where all the data gets processed (both, from the Hardware-Stations and the Frontend which is build in AngularJS and NodeJS). All our communication from and to these parts is done via a nice REST API. We try to keep things separated as good as possible. The Backend is for example responsible for generating smart workouts based on users needs, analysing data and providing statistics, telling all our Hardware Stations how they are configured and a lot more important tasks. Our "Setup" is also quite nice: We use Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, Git, Heroku, Codeship (awesome for deploying!). About you You should be experienced in Rails and SQL. We don't expect you to have 5+ years of experience in it, but you should be motivated to constantly improve yourself and learn the things that are needed. Being passionate about your profession is one of the main things we are looking for in a developer. Why work with us We are a small team of ~15 people, but we want to grow without growing too fast. We offer a competitive salary. We try to keep things simple and maintain flat hierarchies. We love doing regular events with the whole team (movie nights with beer and chips, bowling, dinners, Biergarten, …). We offer a nice hardware setup. Our office language is english.
