Senior Software Crafter (Ruby)

  • Backend, Full Stack
  • Permanent
  • London, UK

The Opportunity

We're looking for an experienced software crafter to join our Product team - someone who's fluent in the Ruby programming language (or Python and willingness to work with Ruby) and competent with Javascript. We use lots of Typescript on our Angular and React projects and we have a couple of projects where we're certain we'll be using Python in the future. Real-life experience with event sourcing would be a bonus.

We’re looking mainly for enthusiasm for collaboration and belief in extreme programming practices. This will be an opportunity for a crafter to have an impact on application architecture whilst doing mostly product engineering, contributing to the global scaling of an established startup and having lots of fun working with a very lively, bright and diverse team.

Work model
