Software Developer – Ruby on Rails

Optimise Logistics, a startup based in Dublin, provides a digital platform and mobile solution for the €450bn European freight shipping industry. We connect shippers with a network of carriers, streamlining the process of placing, tracking and invoicing for shipments. We’re looking for Ruby on Rails Developers to join our experienced growing team.

After successfully launching our MVP last year, we are now refining and expanding our core product across frontend, backend and mobile. You’ll be working directly with the Product Owner and other developers on all aspects of the product. We’ll be growing substantially over the next few months and years, and there’s plenty of room for specialisation and career growth.

We pride ourselves on being a collaborative, product-focused team with high engineering standards. Our stack is Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, AWS for web, and Ionic (Angular) for mobile. We use modern best practices for our product development process, strive to stay on edge with our frameworks (currently on Rails 5.2.2), practice continuous integration and deploy frequently. As a growing team with an evolving product, there are still plenty of opportunity to influence technology choices along the way.

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • 2+ years of Ruby on Rails experience in a production environment

  • The ability to write high-quality, well-tested code

  • Experience working with Agile, Lean and/or Continuous Delivery approaches such as Continuous Integration, TDD, etc

  • Knowledge and appreciation of cloud technology such as AWS

  • Comfort working in growth-focused environments

  • A can-do attitude, willingness to learn and plenty of initiative

Nice to haves:

  • Ionic 3 and/or Angular 5 experience

  • Some DevOps chops

  • An eye for UI/UX design

As you can see from this list, this is definitely a jack-of-all-trades role. We’ll bring on more specialists as needed over time, and you could play a substantial role in that as well.

If you are ambitious and looking for role where you can make significant contributions to the success and growth of a new company, then we would love to hear from you. We offer a market rate salary, meaningful equity, flexible work arrangements, and the chance to grow into a leadership role. We work primarily out of Dogpatch Labs in the CHQ building in Dublin 1, with flexible hours and remote options.
