Ruby on Rails Developer

Last Updated Jul 05, 2018

Description

We're looking for a developer experienced with Rails and JavaScript and interested in expanding into new technologies to join our team in Raleigh. You’ll work with our clients to build great products that delight users while using weekly investment time to contribute to our community and embetter thoughtbot. As a member of the thoughtbot Raleigh team, you will also become a member of our global thoughtbot community. We are almost 100 designers and developers in six offices around the world (Boston, San Francisco, New York, Raleigh, Austin, and London).

Requirements

thoughtbot web developers are able to rapidly build high-quality web applications, fully test-driven. Well-qualified candidates have an excellent knowledge of Ruby on Rails, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SQL, Unix, deployment, performance, debugging, refactoring, design patterns, and other programming practices. While Rails experience is a must, we're also rapidly expanding our work into other languages and frameworks such as Go, Haskell, Clojure, Python, Angular, React, and Ember. Experience or interest in these technologies is a big plus. Very well-qualified candidates will also have experience with consulting, and have a proven track record of attracting potential customers. All persons hired will be required to verify identity and eligibility to work in the United States and to complete the required employment eligibility verification upon hire.

About thoughtbot

We work with companies of all stages to help identify and solve problems. At thoughtbot, we’re involved in every step of the process. We lead and participate in product design sprints, create high-quality apps, and then deploy them. We use the latest technologies and are always ready to try new methods on both internal and client projects. We believe there is always a better way to do our work, and we want to find it and share it with as many people as possible. We maintain an inclusive environment where we can thrive professionally, as well as have full lives outside of work.

Our Benefits

Our goal is to provide ourselves with the best possible benefits, tools to use, and environments to work in while staying sustainable. We've shared the full details of all our benefits here.
  • INVESTMENT TIME

    We consult for clients four days/week. On Fridays, we work to make ourselves, the company, and our community better by learning new tools and techniques, working on open source, blogging, creating new products, volunteering our time, and more.
