Ruby-on-Rails Chief Architect - Meet Us in Person Feb 26th


The Senior Ruby on Rails Architect role is the senior level of our technical positions and requires an expert-level understanding of Ruby on Rails and related technologies. This position is a hands-on leadership role. You will need a startup mindset, wearing multiple hats from lead architect to senior software engineer on the most complex elements of the product. You will also be a technical team leader and solution evangelist.

Role Description

In the role, you will be creating solutions architecture, algorithms, and designs that scale to the customer's enterprise/global requirements. It’s your responsibility to ensure that the customers are blown away by the technical differentiation and quality of the product.

Though we like to remove most of the management overhead for our Senior Architects to let you focus on the key technical solutions - you will be a peer-leader of a team of architects and developers to apply software engineering best practices and implement automations across all elements of solution delivery.
