Software Developer


As a software developer, the world is full of opportunity. Every week there’s another social network, lean startup, marketplace or API opening up. Only rarely, however, does the opportunity come along to build something truly important - a genre-defining new product that is already changing people’s lives.

NationBuilder is an online Community Organizing System built by a world-class team dedicated to empowering a new generation of leaders and creators with the tools they need to create a new world.

We’re currently hiring great software developers to join our team in Los Angeles. We will relocate folks, so if you’ve ever wanted to live in LA, this is probably the best opportunity you’ll get.

Our driving force as a company is creating a great customer experience, and as a team we are dedicated to continuous learning and improvement. We will push code within minutes of a customer reporting a problem, and our entire process is set up for rapid iteration and agile development.

You:
are always interested in learning new things.
get excited when you have the chance to pair.
practice test-driven development and judicious refactoring.
enjoy being responsive to customer feedback.
are a pragmatic problem solver, knowing how to find the middle ground between “perfect, but takes forever to code” and “fixes it now, but nobody will ever be able to understand what I did”
work well in small teams with a clear mission.
have the insight to know whats important and the dedication to get it done.


Skills required:
While existing experience with the technologies we use is welcome, an open and disciplined approach to your work is more important to us than whether you already know Ruby, Rails or anything else in our stack. We value the willingness to learn our technologies and environment over domain-specific skills.


We use Ruby, Rails, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Redis, HTML/CSS/SCSS, and Javascript (JQuery, Backbone, Coffeescript, etc).
