Ruby on Rails Developer
As a member of the thoughtbot Boston team, you will also become a member of our global thoughtbot community. We are almost 100 designers and developers in six offices around the world (Boston, San Francisco, New York, Raleigh, Austin, and London).
All persons hired will be required to verify identity and eligibility to work in the United States and to complete the required employment eligibility verification upon hire.
Our team works in a relaxed and educational environment to develop excellent products for our clients. We work at a sustainable pace of 40 hours per week, consulting for clients four days each week. We dedicate our non-client time to improving ourselves, our communities, and thoughtbot. Everything we do is predicated on having a great team and a culture of growing. We use the latest technologies and are willing to try new methods on both internal and client projects.
We have an investment day each Friday where we learn new tools and techniques, work on open source, create new products, write blog posts, and try to make ourselves, each other, and the community better. If you’ve used our open source libraries, read our blog, attended the local events we host, or seen us speak at conferences then you’ve seen the fruits of investment time.
We have a culture of continuous improvement. Investment days are a critical component in this, but we also offer training and conference benefits. We will cover 100% of all expenses incurred when you speak at a conference and a minimum of 50% of your expenses for any conference or training you attend.
You’ll also enjoy working with and learning from a diverse set of teammates across your client projects and during investment time. We dedicate time each week towards working collaboratively on exciting investment projects, wrapping the year up with a two-day event which our teammates often use to build brand new products in exciting new technologies.
We offer 25 paid vacation days and 11 paid holidays per year in addition to 10 paid sick days. New parents receive at least 6 weeks paid parental leave, as well as the ability to take up to 6 months off.
HEALTHCARE + FINANCIAL
We offer a competitive salary and excellent benefits. We pay 100% of medical, dental, vision, and life insurance premiums for full time employees and 90% of medical premiums for dependents. We also offer a comprehensive 401k plan.
