About our  team

Our team loves working remote. You’ll find us using Slack, Zoom, Jira, Github and email to communicate and collaborate. Despite being physically apart, we are a close-knit group who make an effort to get to know each other. This is not a team where you’ll take a ticket and work on your own until it’s completed. Rather, we work together and help each other; we pair program remotely when needed. And at least once a year we’ll all travel to the same location to meet in person.

Our team is a welcoming place for all people. Some things that make us special:

  • We all work remotely: Eng, PM, UX, everyone.
  • We provide everything you need to work remotely.
  • We have a sensitive and respectful working environment.
  • We value diversity on our team.
  • Family comes first; if you need time, you can take time.
  • We deploy on Fridays (we deploy on other days too).

Where we’re located

Much of the development team is based in European timezones, and we’re looking for someone on the other side of the pond to help make our collaboration with our US-based colleagues smoother. Thus, someone on the US East Coast or in a similar time zone would be ideal, but we’re open to other locations.

What we work on

This team is responsible for building a world-class offering that provides contact management and engagement solutions to small business owners, and includes user-facing features and deep vertical integrations with other products in the suite as well as third party products.

How you will help

As a full-stack engineer, your duties will involve heavy client-side development, complex back-end operations, server-side API development and integration efforts. You will work with our distributed team of Developers, Product Owners, UX and UI designers to build and scale a young application.

We use Ruby on Rails, React, Redux and Sagas, Cassandra, Elasticsearch and Redis, Sidekiq, Github, Jenkins, and Kubernetes. As part of the team you will be responsible for producing high quality, clean and tested code.

On a daily basis you will

  • Work as part of a distributed agile team, remotely attending and contributing to  Scrum ceremonies; as far as possible we try to group meetings together so you are uninterrupted the rest of the day
  • Develop features working on both frontend UI, backend APIs and data schema design, sometimes pair programming with your teammates to solve difficult problems, sometimes working on your own to deliver a story
  • Improve application performance and availability and quality by writing tests, fixing bugs, reviewing code or helping to resolve incidents

Our wish list

  • You have 2 or more years experience working with React, and
  • 4 or more years developing web applications using a framework like Rails
  • You’re experienced with modern JS and CSS
  • You have any experience with Cassandra and/or ElasticSearch
  • You’re experienced with Git and GitHub, and related workflows
  • You have familiarity with Scrum and working in an Agile environment
  • You have experience working on a remote software development team
  • You are on the US East Coast or in a similar time zone

We recognize not everyone has all of these. We value talent and interest over specific experience and would encourage you to apply even if you have just some of our wishlist.
