Job Description

We are a globally distributed Software Development Consultancy, with offices in Barcelona. We partner closely with our clients to provide long-term embedded expertise as an integral part of their product/engineering team. Our focus is product excellence, Rails platform and mobile application development.


We are continuing to grow and taking on new projects with our clients/partners. We're looking to add to our team working on a solidus-based MLM Platform. Across all projects we focus on ensuring our clients get great technical solutions built by teams of smart engineers.


What do we offer?



  • Hard technical challenges (you won't find all the answers on Stack Overflow) where you can take ownership of the solution

  • Work as part of a talented, globally distributed, successful team

  • A productive and non-frustrating work environment from a focussed adherence to our agile/scrum processes (we really believe it helps getting good work done)

  • A great working atmosphere where you can share and learn with other smart people - on this and on other projects.

  • The best-in-class toolsets: Slack, CI/CD with Docker etc

  • Meetups in our Barcelona offices for our remote folks

  • Competitive rates

  • A long term working relationship: this project, then others.



You'll be:



  • Working within a fast moving team (working ~11am - 8pm Central European time) of both backend and frontend engineers.

  • Building challenging business logic on top of open source Solidus.

  • Designing clean APIs and often interfacing with other legacy backend systems.

  • Solving hard business logic with elegant software design

  • Identifying bottlenecks, using tools to diagnose and refactor code for scale

  • Ensuring the robustness, performance and failure characteristics of the system.

  • Writing well tested (rspec), defect free code with CI/CD

  • Taking ownership of production applications - managing issues, releases and ensuring quality


Good English verbal and written communication skills are essential.


The start date for the position is January 2019


This is a contract position with a long term outlook (12 months+ full-time project) for the right candidate. We are looking for remote workers (most of the company is remote) or have openings based in our Barcelona office.
