  • A monolithic Ruby on Rails application

  • Database: PostgreSQL with PostGIS
  • Memcached for view caching
  • Redis for session storage
  • Sidekiq for background jobs

About the job

You will primarily work on the backend part of the application, although some knowledge of frontend techniques could come in handy. This is what you will work on and what you should feel comfortable with:

  • Improve the search system and related features, such as the data layer for advanced dashboards and reporting.
  • Connecting third-party API's to integrate multiple sources of data.
  • Extend our current API and build new API's to provide services to our clients.
  • DevOps tasks: setting up and maintaining Linux servers, databases and other infrastructure needed to run the applications.
  • Knowledge of some frontend related techniques is also a plus.

You have strong communication skills. You are aware of the different options available to solve problems and can clearly explain those and propose solutions that balance both our short-term goals and long-term targets.
