We are looking for a Ruby on Rails Senior Developer to join our small but growing agile (Scrum) development team.
You’ll work on a variety of web projects, from implementing interactive front-ends to designing and building enterprise grade back-end solutions.

PowerSuite allows our customers (such as, but not limited to): Opower (Oracle), Apple, Microsoft, GE, SunPower and EnerNOC) to identify and manage energy policy risks and opportunities across the country.
Our development team is distributed across the Greater Boston Area and we are committed to working from our local Boston office at least once or twice a month for retrospective and sprint planning sessions but enjoy flexible remote work the rest of the time.
