Front-End Ruby Developer

We’re looking for a full time front-end developer position for supplyclinic.com, our ecommerce application written in Ruby on Rails. This person will be building new UX for new features, re-building re-imagined versions of existing features, and be an integral part of the feature development process of the company.

We’re looking for someone experienced and opinionated—someone who wants to build things AND has opinions on how they should be built. Our current stack is Rails and jQuery, but projects in the new year will likely involve newer front-end technologies.

Requirements:

  • 2+ years of front-end development experience preferred

  • Must be familiar with jQuery, Sass, and Ruby on Rails

  • Must be able to build responsive, mobile-first web interfaces

  • An ideal candidate also has experience with modern client-side javascript frameworks like Vue and/or React

  • Ruby on Rails testing methodologies

  • Experience with modern version control (esp. Git), and their relevant workflows

  • High level of personal and professional integrity

Perks:

  • Health, dental, and vision insurance

  • Flexible role in terms of remote work (and easy-to-access downtown office)

  • Office space on Michigan Avenue by the Loop for an easy commute

  • Amazing, dynamic team (if we do say so ourselves)

  • Office snacks, coffee, and wide variety of teas

  • Casual, collaborative work environment

  • Friday happy hours

Full stack Rails developer (n): Superhero poised to change the world

You are a triple threat (at least!)skilled with Ruby on Rails, modern JavaScript (like React, Angular, Vue, or Svelte), and CSS.

We know that headhunters are already beating down your door. We want to earn our right to keep you every single day.

Hey, my name is Calvin, and I know how you feel.

Because…

Even though I am the founder of the successful online platform Simplero.com andmight I addIve been blessed with a wonderful staff of intelligent and kind people from all over the globe, things were not always like this.

I spent many a dark hour figuring out why being awkward in the company of other human beings made me become great at developing software.

Part of that is probably that being broken and alone is a good motivator for developing skills as a programmer.

But for many other things in life?

Not so much.

Anyway, today Im happy to report that I enjoy the best of both sides:

The light side of having mastered the art of focus and logical thinking.

AND…

Having great relationships and being able to build a strong organization with an incredible team and massive growth potential.

But alas.

A dark and evil power is upon us.

And this

…is where you enter the story.

You will be the Superman who is called upon to hammer the villains back into the abyss from whence they came.

Oops. I got carried away…I do that.

The truth is, we have an amazingand shockingly smallengineering team. Im eager to add a few exceptional people who can help in our fight against evil.

I mean that part by the way. Jokes and corny comic book metaphors aside…what were doing is important. Were out to change the world, and we need your help.

So what do you say..?

Do you want to play, or dont you?

Under this youll find the usual features and benefits, but dont let that keep you from raising your hand if you feel a connection after reading this.

Your friend in the good fight,

Calvin Correli

Senior Full Stack Software Engineer

Glowforge is a beautiful device that sits on your desk. It uses a laser to carve and engrave products from raw materials like wood, leather, acrylic – even cardboard. If you haven’t already, check out our video on glowforge.com. While you’re there, you’ll notice something amazing: Glowforge is the largest crowdfunding campaign in history.

There is an incredible demand for what we're creating. It's not a geeky tool for the tech elite or a garage workshop; we're crafting an iconic product that is going to change the way people think about creativity. Our customers include consumers, digital designers, crafters, engineers, teachers, artists, and more. It's already the biggest crowdfunding campaign in history, and now that it's available at retail, the fun is really starting.

This is a full-time role in Seattle, and we are happy to help new employees relocate to this beautiful city.

Why we need you

One of the unusual things about the Glowforge architecture is that we moved many of the hard engineering problems from hardware to software. Our cloud service does the heavy lifting for features like alignment and autofocus. It also makes it dead easy to diagram, draw, or doodle your invention and print it directly to wood, acrylic, fabric, leather, or paper.

Our team is composed of software generalists and we expect you to be one too, but we particularly want your passion and thoughtfulness around our end-to-end web stack. While you’ll do lots of things here, you’ll be asked to tackle problems at every layer of a full-featured web stack, and will spread your knowledge and experience through an organization that is eager to learn. And there’s a lot for you to work on: you’ll be helping with everything from user-facing software to the web services that drive our hardware.

While this role is written for someone with a four-year degree and several years of industry experience, if you’re great at what you do and excited about what we do, we want to talk to you — whether you’re brand new to the industry or you’ve been a veteran architect for decades.

Here’s what you’ll be doing

  • First and foremost, any task that helps us create an amazing product for our customers — which will include stretching your coding skills in new directions and pitching in when your colleagues need help.

  • Driving the decisions about what technologies to add to the stack. We already use Rails, Node, and Python but have a lot more work to do.

  • Working closely with the hardware team to understand the capabilities of our product and help unlock its potential.

  • Participating in planning sessions with the whole product team and can help build the user stories, requirements and specifications that will drive development.

  • Building the software to fabricate the future – not just another CRUD app.

You need these qualifications

  • You write copious amounts of thoughtful, high-quality code.

  • You’ve been responsible for shipping a web product that people love.

  • You’re excited about being personally responsible for making Glowforge successful, and you’re comfortable navigating ambiguity that arises in a startup environment, adjusting to changing priorities, and moving confidently even when guidance is limited.

  • You’re thoughtful about systems engineering, design patterns, and algorithms.

  • You’re passionate about writing great software… and still know that you sometimes have to make some tradeoffs to ship quickly.

It would be nice if…

  • You’re experienced with back-end server technologies and designing for the *ilities (testability, maintainability, extensibility, scalability, and security-ility).

  • You’re familiar with hardware challenges like drivers, motion controller algorithms, and/or low-level code (you’ll be working closely with the hardware team and may have the opportunity to build low-level interfaces).

  • You have graphics experience.

  • You’re comfortable with Javascript, CSS, and HTML (big chunks of our product are user-facing web software)

This is a full-time role in Seattle, and we are happy to help new employees relocate to this beautiful city. Send us a resume or a link to whatever showcases your skills the best. If a resume isn’t handy, a LinkedIn profile or GitHub account is fine.

There's one more, very important thing. We are an equal opportunity employer. We search for amazing people of diverse backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives. We take care of each other to create an inclusive work environment where we love to come to work every day. We'd be happy to provide reasonable accommodations to help you apply - just email us at jobs@glowforge.com.We hope you can join us.
