Looking for strong  Senior Software Backend Developers to join one of the fastest growing and most innovative startups in Atlanta. In this position, you’ll start with a blank page and, of course, some business goals. Then you’ll define the architecture, frameworks and design patterns to use. Next, start coding, help others code, enforce the architecture, craft a lightweight build/deploy process, release frequently, interact with customers, and iterate and support the product moving forward.

This job can stuff your resume with the latest buzzwords like big data, machine learning, agile development and cookie pool, but that’s the least important thing about it. This job is hard and, you may not know it yet, but it’s your dream job.



• 8+ years in software programming

• 3+ years working with Ruby (not “experimenting”… actual coding)

• Proven ability to architect, build, maintain and scale a complete system from blank page to production

• Experience with most key frameworks from the Ruby ecosystem

• Experience defining and implementing APIs (REST, XML-RPC, etc)

• Experience integrating distributed/disparate systems via API

• Experience scaling a system (clustering, memory leak, bottleneck identification, etc)

• Solid database experience (but not necessarily a full DBA skillset)

• Hands on experience with front-end development (JQuery, JS, ExtJS, Html5, etc)

• Strong interpersonal and collaboration skills

• Ability to articulate, defend and evolve an idea

• An always-positive-but-brutally-honest attitude


• Magento, Shopify, OSCommerce, ZenCart or other eCommerce platform development

• Hadoop, MongoDB or other big data techs

• Build/deployment process management

• Social media API experience

• Data science/analytics background

• Open source contributions
