Our Values

If this sounds like you, you’ll fit right in.

Who You Are

Justworks is seeking a staff engineer to join our team. As a successful candidate, you have demonstrated the ability to own and lead the implementation of features in large-scale, distributed applications. You understand the concept of “separation of concerns” and have leveraged design patterns to solve technical challenges. You spend significant amounts of time directly assisting and leveling up other engineers. You look for signal in the noise, and can detect and resolve issues before they become problems.

As part of the wider Payment Experience team, the Time and Attendance team is primarily responsible for all aspects of time tracking within the Justworks application. This includes time entry, approvals processes, integrations with relevant third parties, reporting, etc. You will work closely with senior engineers to scope, design, and build new features and functionality in this area. Your initial focus will be integrating our clock in/out application with our main web application, including the timecard product.

We work primarily in Ruby on Rails and JavaScript/React, but prior knowledge is not a requirement, and you should have a deep understanding that goes beyond the ability to use these tools.

What You'll Do
  • Work collaboratively with other engineers, product managers, and designers
  • Lead complex projects or changes that will benefit the entire organization
  • Keep our code healthy and follow good practices, and motivate other engineers to do the same
  • Provide guidance and support growth in other engineers across multiple teams
  • Build features and functionality that our customers use directly, typically in an iterative fashion taking into account user feedback
Qualifications 
  • Minimum of 7 years of professional hands-on experience
  • Solid understanding of data structures, algorithms, and object-oriented design
  • Experience proactively collaborating across different engineering teams
  • Experience working with complicated systems at scale
  • Experience building APIs and/or webhooks
  • Expertise in Ruby on Rails or React is strongly preferred, and we expect staff candidates to leverage a diverse skill set beyond these tools
Technologies We Use
  • Ruby on Rails, Javascript/React, Redux, MySQL, AWS, Git
  • ElasticSearch, Docker, InfluxDB, Redshift, Jenkins, Nagios
