Full Stack Developer (React Native/Rails) Root Insurance
This job offer is expired
Especially for our early hires, we’re looking for people who have both tremendous breadth and depth. We don’t necessarily care about years of experience, but it usually takes people several years of working fulltime on meaningful software projects with a team to obtain this level of expertise.
Here’s a list of what we’re looking for and why we’re looking for it. An ideal candidate will have experience in all of the following areas, although some gaps are okay.
Automated testingWe’re using RSpec. We’ve found that automated testing is the best way to grow a codebase and confidently make changes to it.
Relational databasesWe’re using PostgreSQL. Expertise here is necessary for performance, reliability, and scaling.
Workers/jobs/message queuesWe’re using Resque through ActiveJob. We have a bunch of batch processing to do, often integrating with third parties that can have slow response times.
Integrating with third-party APIsWe integrate with many “enterprise” partners. These unfortunately aren’t the nice, elegant RESTful APIs that we typically like, so it’s extra challenging.
Linux command line toolsWe rely on them for solving production issues and for having a productive development environment.
If working here sounds interesting and you'd like to be a part of building Root with us, we'd love to chat. Apply within or email us at email@example.com
