Creative Full Stack Ruby Guru. We are looking for exceptional.

We're looking for a senior level Ruby and Rails developer who's comfortable doing a little bit of everything, from frontend JavaScript and SASS to backend Ruby (both inside and out of Rails), linguistic analysis, data retrieval and parsing, and more. We are looking for someone who can talk to clients, and is stellar project management skills- we are looking for someone who can lead our team.

About WebPunch

We are an Online Reputation Management (ORM) agency that deals primarily with franchise systems. We have big name clients. Right now we have 1,000 clients, and are growing rapidly. We are a year old. Our services include a Customer Feedback Tool (using the Net Promoter Scoring -NPS), Local Listing Optimization, and Review Monitoring (where we report on reviews from Google, Yelp etc.), and Positive Review Generation (real reviews written by real clients). We help businesses put their best foot forward to future clients.

About Our Applications

Our current Rails stack looks like this:

  • Rails 4.0.x
  • Ruby 2.1.x
  • Postgres
  • CoffeeScript
  • SASS
  • Slim
  • And more (Kaminari, Devise, Rspec, Cucumber, etc.)

And we use the following services:

  • Heroku
  • S3
  • GitHub
  • New Relic
  • Mandrill

About You

The ideal candidate for this position would have experience working with established, Medium to large sized codebases. You should feel comfortable refactoring old code, writing tests when you spot something that's lacking coverage, and implementing new features quickly. Part of the job also entails maintaining a set of Ruby based shell scripts, so you'll need to be familiar with using Ruby outside of Rails, too.

Additionally, you'll need to have some familiarity with sending email. Lots of email. This includes an understanding of what can and can't be done when creating templates that'll work well in all of the major email clients.

If you have experience with screen scraping and parsing natural language to determine mood, we definitely want to talk to you.

A general familiarity with working with external APIs, fetching data, and parsing CSVs would also be really helpful, as would a deep understanding of Git.

We're a very small team of 2-3 developers (11 people total), so you'll need to be a good communicator, as we work very closely and very quickly. And like most Rubyists, you should have a love of well written, well tested, and performant code.

WebPunch is still young, so there's a big opportunity here to help steer the direction of the code and the product as it grows. If you think you're up to the challenge, we'd love to hear from you.
