About This Role

Hello prospective pickle! Design Pickle is currently seeking out a front end Ruby on Rails/ React Engineer to join the product team to build out amazing, creative features within our software to aid in making Design Pickle the most helpful, creative company in the world. If you’re excited at the opportunity to improve user experience primarily within the Ruby and React framework, please read on!

Who We Are Looking For

First, Design Pickle isn’t your average VC funded, grow-at-all-costs-for-the-TechCrunch-feature type of company. We’re self-funded, hard-working, creative-loving, and a beautifully diverse group of people from around the world.

Do we love pickles too? Most of us but don’t stress. If pickles aren’t your thing, it is not a deal breaker. We do look for a passion and interest in something though. Your unique self helps make us the great company we are today.

We stand by our vision, purpose and values, and these are mission-critical to how you show up every single day.

Specific to your role, we’re looking for individuals who

  • Have at least 2 or more years of Ruby on Rails experience in a professional setting or relevant equivalent
  • Have a proven track record of getting things done, you’re organized as hell and completely goal and project oriented
  • Know how to handle high volume, consumer-facing websites. Even better if you have worked on subscription based sites or SaaS business structure
  • Excel at working independently and as a member of a small team
  • Possess the ability to clearly communicate and identify areas of improvement and provide appropriate solutions with code
  • Can show a breadth of technical knowledge which you use to contribute to the direction of other professional environments and developmental processes
  • Are familiar with tools like Rails 5, Javascript, HTML/CSS, Git, React, and PostgreSQL

Key Objectives and Responsibilities

As a fast growing company, roles always evolve. However we want you to know exactly what you’re walking into. In the first 90-days here is a preview of what’s expected:

  • Develop features using maintainable, readable, modular, and easy to change code
  • Release code that is free of errors
  • Continue to learn new technologies and techniques to improve the existing code base
  • Revamp features within our platform such as our request form, file delivery system, and our stock image offering
  • You will do equal parts work fixing up existing functionality and building new features
  • Your primary focus will be on the front end (one of our sites is 100% Ruby on Rails, and another site has a React front-end and Rails back-end)

Benefits, Compensation & Perks

Specifics will be discussed with qualified applicants.

Additionally we offer:

  • Uncapped PTO
  • Remote-work flexibility
  • World-class creative office
  • In-office gym
  • Paid training & personal development
  • Health insurance
  • Pet insurance
  • New parent leave
  • Team retreats, social events & adventures
