Innovators like Notion, Better Mortgage, Zapier, Intercom, and Nextdoor have saved millions on our platform. We just raised back-to-back Series A and B funding rounds for a total of $67.1M in (TechCrunch article here), and our revenue growth is something rarely seen.

About The Role

At Tropic, we are building a different kind of engineering team, one that is optimized for developer happiness and productivity. We’ve done this by challenging the status quo of how teams and applications are built. 

From a technology perspective, we’ve embraced the conventions of Rails 7 and put the promise of Hotwire (Turbo/Stimulus) to the test. The results quickly spoke for themselves, and we’ve been able to build a modern, SPA-like experience all while using fundamentally simple full-stack web development principles. 

From a team perspective, we’ve chosen our tools and practices to be as lightweight as possible in order to maximize quality collaboration and deep work. 

What You’ll Work On

  • Use Rails 7 + Hotwire + Tailwind + ViewComponents to build features in a clean, near-greenfield application 
  • Collaborate with Product Managers and Designers to craft elegant solutions 
  • Help mentor and teach junior team members

Who You Are

  • 4+ Years of full-stack Ruby on Rails experience
  • A solid understanding of web standards (Modern Javascript/HTML/CSS)
  • A desire to learn and embrace Hotwire and the newest Rails features

Nice to Have

  • Experience working at a SaaS product company
  • Proven ability to thrive in a remote-first environment

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
