About the Job
You'll be a member of our engineering team, helping us build out the platform that drives our business. We have applications for clients to hire taskers, for taskers to register, and for our internal users to administer the service. We use React.js on the frontend, and Rails on the backend. We're looking for people that still love Rails or at least can admit that it’s a very effective way to build great things. If you are interested in React, that’s even better.
As a senior engineer, you'll be one of the leaders of the team, helping to mentor junior engineers, propose creative solutions, and detangle the complex into the simple. You should be comfortable architecting and building moderately complex solutions to backend challenges. You'll work alongside our Chief Architect to have a full vision of the system working to build a robust platform that's clearly organized and easy to maintain. We believe strongly in test-driven development and code reviews. It's expected that you'd be a main reviewer helping to grow the skills of the more junior engineers.
