Job description

Whitespectre is looking for a Senior Ruby on Rails Developer to work on Whitespectre’s own SaaS platform as well as exciting projects for our client partners. In this role, you’ll work within a fast-moving cross-functional team of backend and frontend engineers, Product, and UI/UX to solve interesting technical challenges and create products that drive real business growth at scale.  

Whitespectre is a technology consultancy that develops high-performing platforms and applications for our client partners.  We work with both high-growth start-ups and large established companies looking to launch new products. Founded in 2015, we’re a team of 70 smart and diverse architects, engineers, product managers, and designers from across the globe, working together remotely- and we’re growing!

You'll be:

  • Solving hard business logic with elegant software design to make code modular and maintainable for the future.
  • Designing new architectures and justifying your design decisions to other team members.
  • Understanding how code translates to DB queries and know how to optimize
  • Identifying bottlenecks, using tools to diagnose and refactor code for scale
  • Ensuring the robustness, performance and failure characteristics of the system.
  • Writing well tested (rspec), defect-free code with CI/CD
  • Taking ownership of production applications - managing issues, releases and ensuring quality
  • Occasionally going full stack and also building functionality for the SPAs in javascript (experience in node/react/backbone is useful) 

You must have...

  • Have worked in teams where you contributed towards technical decision making
  • A minimum of 5 years of experience in software development
  • Proven experience using Agile Methodologies in a remote team
  • Availability to work full-time within a fast-moving cross-functional team, working 11 am - 8 pm Central European Team 
  • Excellent communication skills (both verbal and written) are essential for this role.   

What do we offer?

  • 100% Remote team:  Work as part of a talented, globally distributed, successful team with over 8 years of remote experience.  
  • Interesting challenges:  We’ve done everything from scaling high-performance applications, building beautiful (but complex) user interfaces to low-level bluetooth communication with hardware devices.
  • Impact:  Our delivery teams are fast-moving, highly collaborative, and own products end to end- your thinking and contribution make a big impact!
  • Great environment:  We provide a great working atmosphere where you can share and learn with other smart people. 
  • Career progression:  We want you to grow with us and provide the opportunities, knowledge sharing and mentorship to do that. 
  • The best-in-class toolsets:  Slack, CI/CD with Docker etc
  • Work-life balance:  love your work, but know that it doesn’t take over your life.
  • Paid Meetups:  Come meet with your colleagues in Barcelona or at a local meetup. 
  • Competitive rates:  This is a contract position with a long-term outlook (12 months+ full-time projects) for the right candidate.

The candidate must live outside of the US. Please no recruitment agencies.
