About the Job 

The Foundations Team’s fundamental goal is to improve developer productivity and code quality by implementing better design patterns across our backend systems. You will get to work on our core API designs, bring them to life via implementation, and assist other teams in adopting the new APIs and improved design patterns.

As a Senior Software Engineer on the Foundations team, you'll be one of the leaders of our team helping to mentor other engineers, proposing creative and scalable solutions, and de-tangling the complex into the simple. Our engineering team uses Ruby on Rails on the backend, React.js on the web frontend and React Native for our mobile applications. Engineers on the Foundations team are largely focused on the Ruby portion of the system, but some knowledge of front-end development will also be useful and/or developed over time via working with our other engineering teams to adopt our new APIs

 

You will be:

  • Collaborating with other engineering teams to design APIs
  • Contribute to our technical roadmap of ongoing improvements, enhancements and updates
  • Participate in code reviews, listening to feedback and commenting on other approaches
  • Invest in the documentation of best practices and coding patterns
  • Collaborate across teams to promote consistency
  • Improve stability and consistency of existing and new backend & frontend code

 

You should have:

  • Eligibility to work in Poland (Required)
  • 5-10 years of experience, comfortable working independently
  • 2+ years professional experience developing with Ruby on Rails
  • Experience building API-driven applications or endpoints
  • Familiarity with automated testing in large Rails applications
  • A long history of advocating for clean coding practices
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills

 

It would be a plus if you have: 

  • Enjoy helping organize and scope high priority projects and plans to keep us moving forward
  • Expertise in technical writing (writing API specifications and Technical Design Documents is very important for this role)
  • Experience with Service Oriented Architecture or Monolith Deconstruction
