Ruby on Rails Developer

 

We are fast growing startup, building an awesome product. We are looking for full stack Ruby on Rails developers to help shape and take part in the process.

 

What we are building?

Conferize is on a path to create the universal event solution, uniting the world of events. We help event organizers build their community, website and mobile experience to increase the quality and attendance of their events. We want to make any event maker or organizer able to get online providing all the digital tools and services needed. And we want to make it easy, low priced and exciting, to liberate focus on the main reason they create events in the first place: Helping people meet and share ideas.

 

How we work

At Conferize we strive to cultivate a multicultural environment where work, socializing and personal development go hand in hand. We invest in people who are driven and motivated and believe in changing the status quo. We love creative thinkers and selfstarters, who never wait to be told what to do.

We believe in a flat bottom-up organization of work where culture trumps policy. We have little-to-no ‘middle layer’, as our team work semi-autonomously and leadership is semi-internalized. We’re 100 % product-driven, operating with a zero bug policy and exceptional product design; how things look, how they work and how they’re built.

Like us you’re ambitious and professional, yet nice to be around. You have excellent standards for how you communicate and collaborate. We’ll give you everything you need to do your absolute best, most creative and challenging work – with the least amount of frustration. Oh, and we never outsource development and we don’t work with arbitrary deadlines, because we believe both lead to bad solutions.

Our main office is in Copenhagen and we work with flexible hours. Working remotely is an option if you’re in no more than 1 hour from our main time zone (Central European Time).

We believe in fewer great people than many average.

 

General requirements

  • Excellent English communication skills.
  • High degree of motivation and engagement.

Specific requirements

The ideal Ruby on Rails candidate is a pragmatic generalist, has great communication skills and is able to juggle multiple tasks. We would love a fast learner but are right now looking for someone who can hit the ground running. Our stack is currently a mix of Ruby on Rails, Golang, React, Redux, MongoDB, PostgreSQL.

  • Strong understanding of both SQL and NoSQL (MongoDB) database fundamentals.

  • Option to work with the latest technologies, building a cutting edge product and user experience.
  • Real participation and team work. You are not getting a list of stuff to do; you are part of the process of both deciding and doing. Your opinion is valued.
  • Competitive salary/equity.
  • Option to work remotely, or joining us in our awesome workspace in Copenhagen, in the heart of the city’s thriving startup scene.
