Description

Spartan Systems is looking for a passionate full stack senior Ruby Engineer to take part in the ruckus going on in our Chattanooga, TN office. We want someone who is an excellent communicator and team player, who understands users, who can think differently and solve problems creatively. We’re after someone who values bettering themselves and their team, is passionate about continually learning new technologies, and who cares deeply about the quality of code they write.

The next Spartan Systems Ruby Engineer will be confident, multi-talented, accomplished at architecting complex applications, writing clean code and continually refactoring, using modern methodologies and good engineering practices like continuous integration and deployment. They will also actively participate in collaborative teams that embody mutual respect and that share in both the successes and failures of the project as a team.

If you can produce well engineered web apps with an emphasis on delighting users, then maybe you’re who we’re looking for. If you can solve problems, simplify complicated ideas, communicate effectively, and deal with stakeholders and designers alike—then please—drop us a line.

Responsibilities:

  • Engineer and develop highly available web applications and services for both internal and client projects.
  • Contribute to and help shape the way we build things at Spartan Systems.
  • Work with the team to build release plans and identify risks.
  • Research and validate technical solutions.
  • Collaborate with project team including users, stakeholders, designers, engineers, and leads.
  • Contribute to reusable methods and patterns.
  • Champion best practices for the engineering team.

Requirements:

  • You are comfortable working with a number of different technologies and tools such as Ruby on Rails, AWS, Postgres, MySQL, Redis, JavaScript frameworks like AngularJS, background processes and workers, and continuous delivery frameworks. We won’t complain if you are competent with other languages and/or platforms and enjoy working on them just as much as with Ruby and Rails.
  • Have experience engineering, deploying, and maintaining service oriented architectures.
  • Capable of working on both the application and the infrastructure that runs it.
  • Believe in following good engineering practices like collective code ownership, peer code reviews, and writing tests and thorough documentation.
  • Love using data as a problem-solving tool.
  • Self-disciplined and hold yourself accountable to high standards.
  • Have a high level of confidence and welcome failures as learning opportunities.
  • Thorough and detail oriented in practicing your craft.

Spartan Systems is located in Chattanooga, TN—recently featured in Inc. Magazine as a technology magnet, due in part to our city wide gigabit fiber network. You read right, we have super fast, super cheap internets. Chattanooga is also an outdoor mecca surrounded by mountains and bisected by the Tennessee River. Add to the list a ton of local restaurants, microbreweries, coffee houses, music venues, low cost of living and a walkable metro area with beautiful views and you have a fantastical quality of life.

We also offer a remote-friendly work environment if relocating isn’t appealing to you. We believe a great team shouldn’t be restricted by geography.

Are you ready to work with a talented team of passionate designers and engineers in an up-and-coming company located in the middle of an up-and-coming city? Let’s make awesome together.

Full time team members at Spartan Systems have access to the following benefits:

  1. Health/Dental/Vision
  2. Life Insurance
  3. Unlimited Personal Days
  4. A generous equipment stipend
  5. Company funded continuing education resources

This is a full time employment opportunity for a single individual. We’re not looking for contractors, part-time individuals, or agencies of any kind. Thanks!
