Fullstack Rails Engineer

Apply Now

We are seeking multiple
full-stack engineers to expand our team of eight software developers.
The role will involve back-end, front-end and some mobile work, so you
should be strong at one, decent at another, and willing/interested to
learn in the third. We have a culture of “move fast, and try not to break
too many things”.
We’re looking to fill this
position from either our Menlo Park, CA headquarters, or from either of our
smaller offices in Atlanta (Roswell, GA) or Grand Rapids (Holland,
MI). <B
