Senior Web Application Engineer (Rails)

gloo is a fully-funded startup in Boulder CO that has exited beta and launched our mobile apps (iOS and Android). We are in search of someone to help lead a team of web developers for our publishing platform. You will help us maintain this platform and work with us to guide its evolution and expansion as a key member of our technical architecture council.

How you MIGHT spend your day
 Defining, designing, developing and maintaining our API and top level applications
 Leading a team of talented Rails engineers so that everyone is as busy and happy as they can be
 Working with the product team to turn our customer’s vision into reality
 Working alongside the mobile development team to make sure the puzzle fits together perfectly
 Applying your best practice experience in test-driven/behavior-driven development to elevate the team to a whole new level
 Thinking through a tough challenge over a game of foosball


Experiential Requirements
 You have at least 7 years of experience as a software engineer with maybe 2 years of full stack Rails experience; you know 3.2.x, up/down/inside and out
 You aren’t afraid of SQL queries – after all, most applications have a database (we use Postgres)
 Your past projects might include web applications, content management systems, mobile apps, ecommerce sites and learning management systems
 You have a passion for delivering high performing, well-architected software that is easy to maintain
 You thrive in an environment where “what if” is commonplace and feel confined when the rules are already set in stone
 You have worked in an early-stage company so you know what it means to shift priorities and wear a bunch of hats
 Open Source tools are your preferred sandbox
 You are an organized professional capable of managing your time, tasks and activities without daily guidance
 You have a talent for making sense out of obscurity – you immediately begin executing concepts in your mind the moment someone has an idea
 Building strong and long-standing relationships is an important part of your being

Anti-Requirements
 A need for structure and repetition in every work day
 Using the words, “it can’t be done” in a sentence
 Believing, “that’s not my job”


Compensation
 Compensation commensurate with Experience
 Medical with HSA contribution
