    • Help advance one of the largest Ruby APIs powering our family of LGBTQ+ mobile dating apps! Built 100% in Ruby, Sinatra, ActiveRecord/Support/Everything. 
    • Maintain a complex backend that processes more than 350 million web server requests per day
    • Build well factored, maintainable, and tested code using RSpec with Test & Behavior Driven Development (TDD & BDD)
    • Understand and build using strong architectural patterns beyond the standard MVC of Rails, coping with the complexity of a code base which is over 10 years old
    • Be able to work with, mentor, and guide a team of developers


    Who you are:

    • 3+ years of software development experience
    • Have a strong sense of OO programming and Architectural patterns
    • Strong sense of ownership, ability to work independently, and proven track record of driving products
    • Shipped consumer API used concurrently by thousands of users


    Nice to Have:

    • Full-stack knowledge of technologies like Ruby, SQL, Linux, React, and AWS would be highly desirable
    • Data-driven mindset


    Additional Information

    All your information will be kept confidential according to EEO guidelines.
