Software Development


2015-07-25 12:14


Hello! We’re Real HQ and we’re five years old. Since 2010, we’ve grown to 37 employees, maintained profitability, and significantly expanded our customer base. We have an office in Austin, TX but pride ourselves in being a remote company—more than half of our team is spread across the United States.

Our Product team consists of two senior-level Rails developers and one frontend developer/designer. We maintain a custom-built, in-house CRM—creatively named Contacts—that supports our consumer-facing service, Agent Pronto.

Over the next few months, we plan to expand our product line and add new services. In order to do that more quickly and efficiently, we’re hoping to round our three-person dev team up to an even four.

Who You Are *fingers crossed*

You’re a seasoned Ruby on Rails developer who thrives in a flexible, self-directed environment. You have a history of delivering quality, scalable Ruby on Rails applications. You know what it’s like to be interrupted throughout your day and are excited to work with people that value the maker’s schedule. You transcend the left-brained developer stereotype, have an eye for design, and incorporate UX understanding into the things you build. Additionally:

  • You’re self-motivated to learn and incorporate new technologies and keep up with best practices.
  • You’re as comfortable writing code for the browser as you are code for the server.
  • You’re proficient with MySQL (database and query optimization is a plus).
  • You believe in the value of testing and rarely ship code without automated tests in place.
  • You have strong communication skills and are receptive to constructive feedback.
  • You have the ability to thoroughly, yet simply, explain features to everyday users.
  • You can clearly articulate your thoughts and feelings through writing.
  • You’re comfortable working on your own and are able to set ego aside when collaborating on features.
  • You’re not afraid to ask for help.

How We Make

We don’t separate “product” from “engineering”. Our dev team is the Product team, and we all take responsibility for defining features, collaborating on their design and implementation, and finally, announcing them to the team.

We build our products using the following tools and languages, and we’ll expect you to be proficient in each:

  • Ruby, Ruby on Rails
  • HTML (Haml)
  • CSS (Sass)
  • Javascript (jQuery, CoffeeScript, Ajax)
  • Data stores (MySQL, Redis, Memcached)
  • Testing tools (RSpec, Capybara)
  • Continuous integration and deployment
  • Linux
  • Git
  • Nice-to-haves: Bootstrap, Backbone.js

We communicate using Slack, Basecamp, Github, and Google Hangouts. Occasionally, we pair-code with Screenhero.

Some Specifics

We’re looking to hire immediately for a full-time, salaried position. You can expect to be paid a competitive market rate and work around 40 hours per week. We request that you reside in the United States, but once hired, you’ll have the flexibility to work from anywhere. You can choose when to start and end work each day (though, we request at least some overlap with a 9-5 CST schedule). You’ll also be provided with the following perks and benefits:

  • Comprehensive health, dental, and vision coverage. We pay 100% of your premiums and 50% for your dependents.
  • Unlimited vacation.
  • Up to 12 weeks of paid maternity / paternity leave.
  • Laptop and phone upgrades every three years. We’ll also pay your monthly phone bill.
  • Ongoing education stipend to use toward conferences, seminars, etc.
  • Fringe benefits (books, software, etc.)

We understand that working remotely can get a bit lonely, so we’re happy to provide an office or coworking space near you. You’ll also be invited to attend departmental meetups and our annual company retreat, Real Life. Last year, we spent the week in Boulder, CO. This year, we’re flying everyone to South Lake Tahoe for a relaxing week of working and hanging out.
