Open Position

Ruby on Rails Developer

Syncro is a small team crafting applications that help small businesses be more successful. Our software does job tracking, marketing, invoicing, integrates tons of online tools and we’re looking for someone who can help us make our platform even more powerful.

About This Position:

Our software has a primary component that is a “remote machine management” tool. For us, this means a user can install our management tool and in bulk do things like keep software up to date, enforce patch policies, perform remote desktop support, etc.

We are open to using new technology. For example, we use Ember/React/Kubernetes in production.

We’re building a company that has fun inventing. We go fast, and our customers love us. Thousands of repair shops and IT Professionals all over the world rely on our platform for their entire business operations.

We are using Heroku with 50+ Dynos, our platform consists of a number of Rails apps and integrations to other platforms.

We’re building a huge inventory system to rival any out there, we’ve built a “remote machine management” platform with an open API, we’re doing it all…

If this sounds like the kind of team you want to be part of, we want to hear from you.

Do you play around with new stuff for fun?
Have any cool side projects to test out a new technology?
Do you hear about a problem and just obsessed building a web app to solve it?
If this sounds like your kind of thing – we might be a great fit. 🙂

Highlights:

– Salaried position designed to grow with the company (Seriously, try us).
– We want this to be your dream job – but we need your help (Tell us how).
– We will advance your career like nobody else — stay with us for the long haul and we’ll keep you challenged, learning, passionate, and growing.
– Results-oriented: Keep having fun and shipping code and you can design your day.
We are currently a dispersed team working from home and a few regional offices (Seattle, Bellevue, Bay Area, Orange County, Spokane, Los Angeles).

What You'll Be Doing:

– Lots of building and inventing.
– Helping discover and flesh out new product ideas. (Roadmap has like 1000 new features we’re anxious to get to!)
– Keeping us up-to-date with what you are learning in your spare time.
– Bringing in new technology you discover that might solve a problem.
– Coming up with improvements to many areas that are still sort of minimum viable state.

What We're Looking For:

– A few years of building applications, designing interfaces, etc.
– 5+ years of Ruby on Rails
– No specific education necessary. (really)
– Excellent communication skills – verbal, written and electronic.
– You care — which means sometimes putting yourself out there for a customer experiencing pain.
– Ability to multi-task in a fast paced environment.
– You’re kind and wiley (in a good way).

How to Get Hired by Us:

Write us about a recent time or two that you caused a production outage, what the root cause was, and what you learned from it.

 

For example, our CTO shipped a typo in a class name a while ago and those are annoying because they might be easily missed in Development environment but then production blows up. This led to a more robust CI+Staging step than we had prior.

 

Just demonstrate that you are an individual, you have a personality, you enjoy life, and you enjoy good work. And please include a resume. 🙂
