Job Description

A rare opportunity to join what we believe to be one of Adelaide's most exciting, under the radar companies has become available for a Software Engineer specialising in Ruby on Rails. Just a small example of what makes them brilliant (putting aside their advanced AI platform solution which is dominating their space in recent partnerships with the world's most iconic brands and top 500 fortune companies) it's their human element, their people based culture which has remained unchanged even through vast growth and success.

As a Ruby Software Engineer you will apply your frontend and backend skills with an experienced product-based development team responsible for evolving and maintaining a global data-centric business platform whilst working and learning alongside a dynamic and supportive team of 50+ Adelaide-based software engineers.

You will actively participate in a fast-paced software development process as part of an agile product
engineering team, writing and reviewing code primarily in Ruby and TypeScript. You will develop and maintain a web application to specifications, both frontend and backend, with a constant stream of new features in the pipeline. Working directly with the lead developer you will interpret requirements, confirm specifications, and develop appropriate production-grade implementations that operate at scale for a global user base.
You will also interact with the lead UX / UI Designer and Test Analysts to clarify requirements, understand scope changes that arise from time to time, and resolve bugs.

Key Skills included:

  • 1+ years' development experience with Ruby on Rails (frontend and backend) with a passion to further your skills in Ruby and similar frameworks.
  • Demonstrated experience with TypeScript or other modern JavaScript variants including:
  • o Experience of MVVM patterns
    o General knowledge about UI and controls
  • Experience with Single Page Application (SPA) development.
  • Strong skills with a relational database (ideally Postgres), SQL and general database
  • Experience working with the Atlassian product suite (i.e. JIRA, Confluence).

Along with your technical expertise, you will be a self-motivated individual, who demonstrates strong communication skills with the demonstrated ability to contribute within complex fast paced environments. You will also enjoy working as part of a large yet close knit team of professionals who are engaged and passionate for the work they're delivering.

If I've sparked your interest and your keen to have a chat about this opportunity as well as learn further on what makes this employer brilliant, please apply today or for a chat please contact Katrina (08) 8112 7400.
