Senior Ruby on Rails Developer

Telecommute · United States


Who We Are

Since 2007, Quimbee has helped law students prepare for classes and final exams. Starting at $15 per month, law students get access to a comprehensive database of case summaries, video lessons, practice questions, and a legal dictionary. Over the past nine years and through sheer word of mouth, we have become one of the most widely used and trusted sites for law students, serving both institutional clients, such as American University and University of Illinois, as well as thousands of individual law students.

We’re headquartered in Charlotte, NC, but we’re big believers in remote working. Our team is spread out among Taiwan, Uruguay, and different cities in the U.S. We don’t mind where you work, so long as you’re passionate and hardworking. To stay in touch, we mostly use Google Hangouts and Slack. To stay organized, we use Pivotal Tracker and Basecamp. But overall we think we’re low bureaucracy. We use a lightweight agile process. We have a pretty much horizontal organization so everyone in our team is encouraged to bring new ideas which could drive our business in new or improved ways.

As our site has grown, so has our need for exceptional designers and developers. We have had the privilege of working with some outstanding dev shops in the past, but we’ve moved on to building our own full-time dev team since 2014. We like small teams and we try not to grow the team unless we really feel the need. With our application growing in size, usage, and complexity, we can now see that we’re in dire need of welcoming a new versatile, experienced developer to the team. That’s where you come in.

Who We’re Looking For

You must be a senior developer. Technically we’re mostly interested in your recent Ruby on Rails and general web development experience at all levels of the stack, from Angular (or similar) front end apps, to dealing with search engines, DB query tuning, and everything in between, but we’d expect you to have worked with other languages/frameworks during your career. You’ll join a very small tech team, so your voice will be heard when we need to make new technical decisions as our product grows. We expect you to go beyond coding to give input on the product roadmap, design, and architecture.

These are some of the tasks (beyond “simply” coding new features and fixing bugs) our tech team has been dealing with over the last few years so you can get a big picture of the tasks you’d be involved with:

Our application is currently based on these main technologies:
