  • Be a full stack engineer, comfortable developing features using JavaScript, Rails, and the data stores
  • Bring new concepts/methodologies/tools to the team
  • Be our flavor of crazy; we enjoy working together and hope you will too!

You are especially intriguing if you have...

  • Deep experience with caching & web performance/scalability
  • Experience with TDD/BDD and fluency developing tests and writing code in this fashion
