We use a modern set of frameworks and technologies: Ruby On Rails 5.2, React 16.3.2, ActiveRecord, PostgreSQL, AWS.
You’ll have freedom to tackle the problems you want, especially during our quarterly “Wow Weeks”, but also within regular sprints.
We have all of the usual tech company amenities: beer, a very active ping pong table, a roof deck, and free lunch on Fridays.
What will you do?
You’ll work closely with a few other engineers, a designer and a product manager to encourage our users to donate their health data so that we can drive new discoveries in health science.
You’ll be writing code across the full stack to build features in a web app.
Use common Agile processes to build user value within a 2-week sprint
What do you need to be successful?
You have previous experience as a professional software engineer, ideally in web development. We’re a dynamic growing team with ability to hire at a variety of levels. We’re looking for engineers who can build great applications.
Previous Rails experience is not required. We believe that good engineers can learn new skills quickly.
Willingness to learn new skills and to share your skills with other engineers and stakeholders.
Openness to collaboration across the organization. You’ll work with the product and design teams very closely and should expect to share code and knowledge with your fellow engineers on an hourly basis.
