Job Description

Fountain is looking for an engineer who cares about solving the inefficiencies in the modern workforce and is excited about breaking the status quo of an old, static industry. We're looking to bring on our first engineering hires to help us scale to every serious hourly-work employer in the world.

Responsibilities:

  • 1-2+ years of industry experience working with Ruby on Rails.

  • Good knowledge of object-oriented patterns in Ruby - we think it is crucial to apply proper object-oriented principles to grow the application.

  • Solid understanding of Agile development practices and Lean Software Development principles. You should be very efficient at understanding different use cases, prioritizing tasks, working with Git and implementing the GitHub flow. We ship new releases every day.

  • You are proficient enough to optimize relational databases (PostgreSQL 9.4+), using noSQL databases (we use Redis and ElasticSearch), and scale the application (we use Heroku). Good ElasticSearch knowledge and experiece with maintaining performant PostgreSQL databases is a huge plus.

  • Not afraid of taking risks, and vested in making our business a success, together.

Nice to have:

  • Open source contributions (please send a link to your GitHub profile)

  • Experience with React/Redux

  • Experience with highly performant PostgreSQL databases or experience with ElasticSearch
