We’re looking for a Lead Ruby on Rails developer to join the team to help us to come up with some cool ideas and then help to build them into viable consumer products and in true start-up style, run with them to create a world leading product OR pivot and look at something else.
Either way the end goal is to create something excellent for our consumers!
We are looking for a Ruby on Rails (ROR) developer with strong experience working on APIs. As our Ruby on Rails (ROR) developer you would be somebody who has some mentoring or coaching skills and also has ownership of projects. Currently our IOS application is taking a lot of orders and is working extremely well, so we’re looking to get our Ruby on Rails API set up to be able to handle all of the requests. You would also be the person who would contribute towards the implementation and development of new features to the application.
We build clean code, we have done since forever and we like to keep it this way and are big on TDD and Unit Testing, we’d like to see our Lead Ruby on Rails developer with experience of working in a TDD environment, however if you use Rspec and have not yet learned TDD, we’re happy to teach if you’re willing to learn.
We’re a fully agile environment, working our own project using Kanban, however we collaborate with Scrum teams throughout the group and adjust where needed, so a good agile knowledge is always helpful.
Unlike most jobs, as our Lead Ruby on Rails (ROR) Developer, you’ll have the ability to come up with and chair new ideas and features for the application and will be given time to try them out, prove the concept and if all good, roll out to the market and see it used by millions of consumers.
So what are we in need of?
• Ruby on Rails
• Good managerial or team leading skills.
• Hands-on experience with TDD
• Experience developing scalable web applications
• Experience deploying to real servers
• Strong experience developing the API from scratch
Not an exhaustive list, but if you like to build cool things enabling people to create and personalise products that everyone can enjoy, we want to hear from you!
