We are delighted to be working with a team of pet lovers and tech experts here to make life brilliant for pets, their people, and less fortunate pets too.

We are looking for talented Ruby Developer to help bring game-changing innovation to a $100bn global industry!

You’ll be joining our founding team of over 30 experienced startup characters and entrepreneurs in our state-of-the-art HQ near Exmouth Market – and you can even bring your dog to work with you!

What will you be doing?

– Extending Solidus/Ruby on Rails API to serve our clients
– Writing high quality, simple and clean code
– Placing emphasis on outcome rather than output (think OKRs)
– Aspire towards TDD but be pragmatic about it
– Engaging in smart chatter about our code with the team
– Be expected to dip into some frontend too e.g admin interfaces, data visualisation

You’ll be building the core experience on top of the open source platform Solidus (formerly Spree). This means you’ll be contributing back to this project as well as to our own private repositories.

This is not a job where you’ll just sit and turn specs into code, it’s a challenging and rewarding role where you’ll be building the basis of an experience that our users and partners will love.

Here are just some things we like!

Ruby on Rails, Spree/Solidus, REST, Swagger, GraphQL, Pusher, Stripe, ActiveSupport::*, RSpec, Paperclip, Cloudinary, Redis, Postgres, Elasticsearch, Sidekiq/Resque, Puma, nginx, Docker, AWS, Kubernetes, Terraform
