Full Stack Ruby Engineer - Showcase IDX

How would you like to join a team that is building the future of home buying? This is a rare opportunity to join our team at the beginning of a new mission, as we look to redefine how people find and buy homes. We are re-imagining the home search experience and building new ways to help people around the world find and buy their home. To reach these ambitious goals, we'll be keeping things simple and transparent in the product design, code, and team. We believe that simple can be hard, but simple is worth the effort.

Our team is made up of experienced, talented people who see opportunities where others may not. We think that innovation comes from experience, experimentation, iteration, taking smart risks, and rejecting the idea that the status quo is the only or best way to solve a problem. You'll have an opportunity to influence the design of and build a product that truly impacts one of the biggest decisions in people's lives, in very real ways.

We are picky about our code. We want our codebase to be readable, maintainable, performant, reliable, and well-tested. We encourage use of language features to make code more readable, not overly clever. We aggressively, but nicely, code-review each other. We learn from each other, and push each other to get better.

We believe that delivering value outweighs how many hours you work or where you work. In our eyes, the best performance and outcomes come from focusing on our personal and team growth and development. We provide a flexible work schedule, generous vacation, a relaxed work environment, and opportunities for professional growth and development.

And finally, you'll never be asked to come into an office!
