Backend Engineer (Ruby on Rails)
A cutting-edge Virtual Reality startup company is looking to hire a seasoned web developer in their Bay Area office, paying $100,000 to $150,000. The company has experienced substantial growth this year with over $10 million in series A funding, and is in the process of expanding their new communication platform to over 150 countries worldwide. They provide the most complete, effective, and fun way for people to be together when they are not in the same physical space. You’ll be working on the full core infrastructure that holds up the entire application, as well as bringing new and creative solutions to the advancement of the product. This person will also engage in the full development life cycle, from specification review to product adoption, giving you the opportunity to make a significant impact on the backend. This is an opportunity to work with like-minded, talented engineers and advance your skills as a Ruby on Rails Engineer.
As a core developer, you will take an integral role on the team and be responsible for developing code, integration testing, while collaborating on architecture and design. If you are a self-motivated individual who is filled with inspiration and thinks next-level VR is the future, this job is the one for you. On the backend stack, you will be heavily focused on Ruby on Rails with PostgreSQL, running on AWS. Beyond hands-on coding, this person will be pushing the organization forward in regards to new infrastructure while supporting their design principles: extensibility, configuration, usability, openness, and scalability. This is an incredible opportunity to work with talented, futuristic, like-minded engineers and work at a fresh company that is pushing the boundaries of Virtual Reality.
