Who We're Looking For
We are looking for an expert server-side or full-stack Rails developer to build out our exciting new features and matching algorithms, while improving our site performance & reliability. We want someone who’s pragmatic to the core, passionate about code, and has been in the trenches long enough to have a sixth sense about what makes good Ruby/Rails code.

- work well with a multidisciplinary team, and communicate actively
- think independently and love sharing your technical knowledge with others
- aren't afraid of a little database administration or dev ops work (we use chef & AWS)
- probably have a technical degree and 3+ years of real-world Rails development experience
- are a small dedicated product team (5 people), so your contributions really count
- love Github, Jenkins, Pivotal Tracker, HipChat, iDoneThis
- work in weekly sprints, with regular retrospectives, and do code reviews via pull requests
- support open-source development, and encourage contributions back to the community
- are data-driven, and take product ideas from the whole team
- hate useless meetings, value your time, and enjoy a good work/life balance
- Competitive Compensation — including bonus and paid time off.
