About PatentSpark
PatentSpark democratizes the processes of getting intellectual property for entrepreneurs, small businesses, individual inventors, and really anyone who isn’t a multinational corporation with deep pockets. We make it quick, cheap, and easy for anyone to protect and commercialize their creations. That means you, awesomepreneurs!

This position reports to the CEO.

About the Role
We are looking for a star developer who wants to be part of our growing venture and to take the technical reins of the product. This includes leading the growing development team, making systems/architecture choices going forward, monitoring performance, experimentation, and having a big say in the look-and-feel of the product and the business overall. This is a job with major upside potential, both in terms of title and responsibility for the right person, as well as financial opportunity.

Skills we are looking for:
• Experienced RoR developer who is more comfortable working with blank canvas than refactoring legacy code.
• Willingness to go beyond your comfort zone and build something amazing.
• Like interesting technical challenges.
• Familiar with coding best practices and design patterns.
• BDD/TDD methodologies and tools such as RSpec, Cucumber, FactoryGirl, etc.
• Familiarity with frontend technologies such as HTML5, CSS, javascript, jQuery, etc.
• CS background preferred.
• UX/UI experience and an eye for design a big plus.
• Knowledgeable implementing secure code and infrastructure.
• Have patents in your name? Tried to get a patent? Experience with the intellectual property process is a plus.
• DevOps tools such as git, continuous integration systems, etc.

Obviously, we aren’t born knowing all this stuff, so really the most important qualities are Passion, Commitment to Excellence, and a Willingness to Learn.

Our Culture
We are – like Apple – “At the intersection of Liberal Arts and Technology.” We are a highly creative and imaginative bunch, but value the role of engineering most highly. We encourage experimentation in all facets of the company; If you have an idea, why not try it out in practice? We work hard, because we believe in changing the world through great products, and are willing to undertake large technical challenges to accomplish our goals. We are also a meritocracy, so your contributions and vanquishing of problems will not go unnoticed or unrewarded.

What’s in it for you:
• This is a full-time opportunity, but we will consider part-time or remote situations for the right candidate.
• Competitive Salary
• Equity, commensurate with your getting in at the ground floor
• Opportunity to try new things and grow into senior tech management role
• Be part of an exciting new venture with fun people!
• Ability to direct the systems architecture and the company direction
• Work with amazing people, did we mention it’s awesome?
