LEAD RAILS ENGINEER

Are you the Full Stack Developer we’re looking for?

Are you interested in working with a small team where you can make a huge contribution? Join us at our Madison office!

We are looking for a full-stack developer to lead work on our cloud platform. If you understand the end-to-end mobile app ecosystem but like the server side best, then this is the job for you.

How we would like you to help us:

  • Write smart, focused, pragmatic code
  • Collaborate on feature specification, design, development, and testing
  • Research new libraries and techniques that can make our architecture great
