This job offer is expired

Koru Kids needs a back-end Ruby engineer to join our team which is scaling rapidly and building the world’s best childcare service. We’re making it easier and more affordable for families to access high quality childcare, backed by some of the best investors in Europe, and we’ve won a bunch of awards.

A little about the role

This role is perfect for an experienced Ruby Engineer who wants to continue to hone their craft in a software, data and content start-up about to enter a hyper growth phase.

We have a mature and stable tech stack and a healthy code-base, built with a strong focus on quality and best practices, which allows for fast design iterations, short development cycles and quick fixes when challenges spring up.

We’re not a deep tech company, and we don’t pretend to be.  What is challenging is how we’re providing a tech solution to a complex problem specific to human interactions and behaviours.  Ultimately we are reinventing one of the last essential areas of our social infrastructure that remains largely untouched by technology.

Cool things you could work on

  1. Helping us scale our public transit time and routing services, enabling lightning quick calculations of transit time between hundreds of thousands of families across London and beyond.
  2. Refining our search algorithms and building tools to make complex ‘matching’ problems a breeze, to give families and nannies a solution that works.
  3. Designing our payroll infrastructure, supporting thousands of individual employee shift submissions every month, ensuring we invoice our families and pay our nannies accurately and on time. This will eventually extend to being a fully fledged scheduling and shift management tool.
