This job offer is expired

Custom Solutions is hiring a new developer and we want it to be you! We’re looking for a developer ready to drop the ‘junior’ from their title; a developer who has worked on Web applications and wants to improve their skills; a developer who wants opportunities for learning, advancement and professional development; a developer who wants to solve real problems faced by over 60,000 students.

You’ll work in small groups, developing web applications that improve the student experience at the U and that improve your skills as a developer. And we set aside time each week to work with developers across the University through collaborative projects, meetups, and hackathons.


Most of our projects are web applications using Ruby or Rails with a strong focus on accessibility and current web standards. We also work on:

  • Plain-old-Ruby processes
  • Infrastructure automation using Ansible
  • CLI tools using a mix of languages: Bash, Ruby or Rust

The Day To Day

You'll be pairing with a Tech Lead writing Test-Driven (using RSpec) to deliver stories on greenfield or existing projects.

Beyond pairing there are monthly meetups, communities of practice, hackathons and more where you can learn new skills and share your experience.

Professional Growth

The team attends training from experts such as Sandi Metz, Avdi Grimm, and Frontend Masters. You'll work with the Team Lead and the Manager to identify personal development goals and how to meet them. In addition, we set aside time each week for professional development. 


We use three interviews.

  1. Meet with a small group of ASR employees to discuss the job, your previous experience, and your qualifications.
  2. A short take-home exercise
  3. Pair programming with Custom Solutions developers using your programming language of choice.

Oh, and we won’t ask you to code anything on a whiteboard.

Each interview takes about 2 hours and will be on different days. We can also arrange for remote interviews.
