Looking for a great place to work on interesting projects?
We’re a Ruby development agency. We’ve been around for almost 30 years, with a stable, growing business. We’re busy. We tend to work on larger projects, typically with a mix of Front End, Back End and DevOps tasks.
Rather than work on just one projects, each of our team typically work across a number of projects. Each person has 2-3 projects. Some of our clients are funded start-ups, but most of our work is for well-established companies with meaty problems to solve - like tricky payment flows, security and scaling.
We value quiet thinkers and creative innovation. We try to automate as much of our processes as we can, so our developers can focus on their work rather than babysitting a deploy.
We will never, ever, ever ask you to participate in a Shabooyah roll call.
You’re an experienced developer. You know your stuff. Making nice things is what you do. Pride in the craft of building awesome features. You give thoughtful, considered code reviews.
Sure, you could probably do some Start Up thing. Or you could get a job with a fancy title at a Google/Salesforce/IBM etc. and find yourself one night wearing your tie as a headband. But we think you’ll probably like it more here.
How about if I explain us a bit more:
This is a full time position. Just in case you’re planning out your side hustle. This isn’t it. And whilst we all appreciate the passion you show after listening to that podcast about the 4h work week, and how you have big plans for Becoming A Developer while actually getting chatGPT to do the work, this is not the gig for you.
Well, with the dreaded Rona, everything has changed. We used to all work together in a really nice, light filled office that was located in the very epicentre of HipsterLand, Surry Hills. But since then, we’ve all been working from home. So we’ll kit out your home office just right, and we’ll Slack and Zoom away. You can work from wherever you’d like.
Nup. We’re pretty tight operationally. We track what people are working on, how well they’re progressing, and how happy they are with their work. Since we changed to work from home, our productivity is way up, sick leave is way down, the teams happy and we’re pretty busy. So we’re good.
However not everyone can work from their home, so we’re also able to arrange an office if that works better for you.
Really well. Probably much better than where you are right now. But nowhere near as much as that recruiter swears you’re actually worth. He would know, right? With all that deep deep Web3 and Rails on Ruby experience, amazing contacts from all over LinkedIn, etc etc . There is no way he would just make that up to get you to talk to him.
If you’re interested in this position, pro tip: please don’t send in a huge Word doc CV. Just shoot an email to Sarah » email@example.com with an outline of the kind of projects you’ve worked on, and some insight into who you are. We would love to hear from you.
