We're looking for an experienced Rails developer to join our team. Build great products while contributing to our community with open source, writing, speaking, events, and more.
While Rails experience is a must, we're also rapidly expanding our work into other languages and frameworks such as Go, Haskell, Clojure, Elixir (Phoenix), Python, Angular, and Ember. Experience or interest in these technologies is a big plus.
Very well-qualified candidates will also have experience with consulting, and have a proven track record of attracting potential customers.
We like to keep ourselves happy while we work. Here at thoughtbot there’s stellar vacation time and fully stocked offices with everything from Klondike bars to neat little notebooks. If you need a change of scenery, you can work from home.
Our team works in a relaxed and educational environment to develop excellent products for our clients. We work a sustainable pace of 40 hours/week, consulting for clients four days/week. We also like to learn. Everything we do is predicated on having a great team and a culture of growing. We use the latest technologies and are always down to try new methods on both internal and client projects.
On Fridays, we have “investment time” when 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.
We pay 100% of expenses if you speak at conferences and 50% of the cost for attendees. We also have a 3-day hackathon at the end of every year.
We have five weeks of paid time off per year, personal days, plus extended leave. For new parents, we also have at least 6 weeks paid leave in all locations, as well as the ability to take at least 6 months off.
HEALTHCARE + FINANCIAL
For full-time U.S. employees, we pay 100% of medical, dental, vision, and life insurance premiums, plus we have a comprehensive 401k plan.
