This job offer is expired

Waggl is looking for experienced Ruby on Rails Web Developers to join our growing team.

How we are different

We know that as a developer you can work many places.  Waggl’s work environment is unique.

  • We care deeply about our work.  Both the quality of what we produce and its impact.
  • We believe everyone deserves to have their voice heard from a brand new hire to the CEO.  This is key to our product and our culture. We check titles at the door.
  • We trust you.  You can work from home, in the office, or from an RV traveling across the country as long as you stay connected and get your work done.  We trust you to take the time off you feel you need to recharge and be your best. No questions asked.
  • We improve the work lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
  • We are growing like crazy.
  • All these things and more have led us to be named as one of the Best Places to Work in the US by Inc magazine.

How we work

We work really hard to balance collaboration, autonomy, efficiency and high quality output.  We do this through informal interactions, short daily meetings, and efficient planning meetings.  Our primary technology stack is Ruby On Rails, React, and Backbone. We also use Less and Coffeescript (transitioning to ES6) to make frontend work more enjoyable.  Our team is made up of developers, designers and QA folks.

Where you fit in

Our system is robust enough to have interesting technical challenges but not so big that you only get to work on one specialized portion of the system.  We are looking for people to contribute in the following ways:

  • Develop new features (front-end, back-end, or both).
  • Help us further scale our platform (both through optimization and re-architecting as needed)
  • Contribute to the team's best practices and effectiveness.
  • Help teammates and give feedback on their code
  • Investigate production systems errors
  • Work on other special technical projects


  • 3+ years Ruby on Rails and Javascript
  • Normal work hours are EDT, CDT, or PDT, AST (e.g. you live in North America, Central America, or South America)
  • Fluent spoken and written english
  • Team player

Nice to have

  • Experience with a javascript framework (React, Backbone, Angular, etc)
  • Experience writing tests
  • Experience optimizing sql queries.
  • CoffeeScript
