Our client has a huge customer base in the travel industry. They are a constantly expanding team and in need of an experienced engineers. Great care is taken in nurturing the design process.

The platform is an event-driven, service-oriented architecture hosted in AWS. Everything is written primarily in Ruby, but with sprinklings of NodeJS primarily in the form of AWS Lambda functions. Many of the services within the platform use Event Sourcing to manage states. Client-side, it's a rich client application written in the latest version of Ember. The intention is to provide our Customer Support Agents with a simple experience so they can focus on providing great customer service. 

You've got plenty of commercial Ruby experience, as well as strong working knowledge of software design patterns and SOLID (or similar) principles to create well designed software. You see rigorous code testing as an essential part of the dev process, and while your main focus is back-end, we'll consider it a bonus if you're not afraid to jump into the front-end every now & again to play around with some javascript in order to help get the work done. You thrive on team interaction and always looking to give input - you're not the kind of developer who likes to just sit at their desk with their headphones all day bashing out code.

  • Working in a culture of experimentation and knowledge-sharing practices

Send an email with your resume, website, Github account, links to apps or anything else you're proud of. At that point I'll tell you more about the role and we can decide if there's a fit. Even if this role isn't quite right for you but you are passionate about all things Ruby or Javascript, I would still love to hear from you.
