We are a globally distributed Software Development Consultancy, with offices in Barcelona. We partner closely with our clients to provide long-term embedded expertise as an integral part of their product/engineering team. Our focus is product excellence, Rails platform and mobile application development.

We are continuing to grow and taking on new projects with our clients/partners. We're looking to add to our team working on a solidus-based MLM Platform. Across all projects we focus on ensuring our clients get great technical solutions built by teams of smart engineers.

What do we offer?

  • Hard technical challenges (you won't find all the answers on Stack Overflow) where you can take ownership of the solution
  • Work as part of a talented, globally distributed, successful team
  • A productive and non-frustrating work environment from a focussed adherence to our agile/scrum processes (we really believe it helps getting good work done)
  • A great working atmosphere where you can share and learn with other smart people - on this and on other projects.
  • The best-in-class toolsets: Slack, CI/CD with Docker etc
  • Meetups in our Barcelona offices for our remote folks
  • Competitive rates
  • A long term working relationship: this project, then others.

You'll be:

  • Working within a fast moving team (working ~11am - 8pm Central European time) of both backend and frontend engineers.
  • Building challenging business logic on top of open source Solidus.
  • Designing clean APIs and often interfacing with other legacy backend systems.
  • Solving hard business logic with elegant software design
  • Identifying bottlenecks, using tools to diagnose and refactor code for scale
  • Ensuring the robustness, performance and failure characteristics of the system.
  • Writing well tested (rspec), defect free code with CI/CD
  • Taking ownership of production applications - managing issues, releases and ensuring quality

Good English verbal and written communication skills are essential.

The start date for the position is January 2019

This is a contract position with a long term outlook (12 months+ full-time project) for the right candidate. We are looking for remote workers (most of the company is remote) or have openings based in our Barcelona office.
