    Job Description

    The Senior Ruby Engineer will help build pure Ruby API powering our family of LGBTQ+ mobile dating apps.

    We are looking for engineers who are passionate about architecture and monads! Ok just kidding about the last part -- but you can see more about our architecture in our Medium blog series here.

    What you'll do:

    • Maintain a complex backend that processes more than 350 million web server requests per day
    • Build a modern API application atop a functional architecture in Ruby, Ruby on Rails, and/or Sinatra
    • Build well-factored, maintainable, and tested code using RSpec with Test & Behavior Driven Development (TDD & BDD)
    • Understand and build using strong architectural patterns beyond the standard MVC of Rails
    • Have a strong sense of OO programming and Architectural patterns
    • Be able to work with, mentor, and guide a distributed team of developers


    Qualifications

    Who you are:

    • Bachelor’s degree (or higher) in computer science, related field, or equivalent practical experience
    • 3+ years of software development experience
    • Experience using design and architecture patterns
    • Strong sense of ownership, ability to work independently, and proven track record of driving products
    • Shipped consumer API used concurrently by thousands of users.

    Nice to Have:

    • Full-stack knowledge of technologies like Ruby, SQL, Linux, React, and AWS would be highly desirable
    • Experience working with big data technologies like Spark
    • DevOps experience - Docker, k8s, linux/unix
    • Data-driven mindset
