RubyApps is reinventing the way brands engage with their customers by providing a more personalized, data-driven, relevant, and holistic content experience. We envision a future when creators, editors, and publishers can work more collaboratively and seamlessly across the content lifecycle, while delivering richer, resonant, and more consistent content to their consumers.

RubyApps' services division, RubensteinTech, is seeking an experienced Senior Software Engineer to enhance and extend our enterprise content lifecycle management platform while implementing complex websites and applications in JavaScript, React, and Node.js.

 

Overview 

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will be directly responsible for collaborating with Project Team Leads, Tech Leads, and project teams to deliver client projects. You will also continue to enhance the RubyApps product and front-end web development framework.

Our company is a place of continuous growth and improvement. Successful candidates have a strong foundation in modern software languages and are able to effectively manage time and responsibilities within a deadline-driven environment. In addition to a passion for coding, they are expected to be motivated to continue their own learning and professional development while mentoring others on the team to evolve their skills.

 

Technical Skills & Requirements

Individuals should have expert-level skills in the following software languages and platforms in a Linux and Docker/Kubernetes environment:

  • 3-5 years of Node.js and React experience
  • Experience with HTML5 and CSS3, including Sass/Less/CSS Modules
  • Proficiency with modern development tools, like Babel, Webpack, and Git
  • Fluency with at least one NoSQL databases (MongoDB, Couchbase, etc.)
  • Redux, Elasticsearch, and ES6 a plus

Having an understanding of programming language design theory, knowing the difference between different generations of languages, delineating between functional programming types (e.g., Lisp v. Haskell), and being grounded in application design (e.g., thin client v. thick client) is expected.

A bachelor's degree in Engineering, Computer Science, or a related field is required.

 

Benefits

We fully recognize that our employees are the key to our long-term success. To that end, we offer a full benefits package including health insurance, a retirement savings plan, and pre-tax deduction for commuting expenses. 

While Overachievement is one of our core values, we believe that employees should also appropriately find balance and be given time to rest and recharge. Beyond vacation time, which is allocated based on tenure, we observe eleven (11) company holidays, including one week off before the year’s end.

If you ask our team members what their favorite benefit is, though, many would say: Free lunch!

An Insider's view of RubyApps

What are some social events your company does?

We have a busy social calendar at RubyApps. We host happy hours, game nights, and movie nights.

We celebrate team member birthdays, when honorees can choose the dessert of their choice, and we also go on companywide outings. This year we went on a scavenger hunt, but we've also gone axe throwing and on a sunset cruise.

Michele

Operations Manager

What does your typical day look like?

As a project team lead, my primary role is to facilitate conversations—both internally and externally—and to act as a conduit between the client, our design partners, and the engineering team.

To be effective in my role, I approach each conversation by first asking, "How can I provide value,” and “Why should my counterpart care?"

Julie

Senior Project Team Lead

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Having an open and honest relationship with our employees is important to me. Given the different ways our team members like to communicate, I provide options that meet their styles: I keep an open door policy, I schedule office hours, I conduct weekly 1:1s with direct reports, and I host informal roundtable talks with small groups.

Jaron

President & Founder

What does career growth look like on your team?

Some of the most exciting opportunities at RubyApps right now are for candidates with sales and marketing backgrounds. We have an ambitious plan, and we're seeking motivated people that love our platform and want to help us bring it to an expanding TAM. In terms of career growth, it's a fast-moving, steep curve with virtually no ceiling (yet).

Head of Sales & Marketing
