Description

Note: This is a remote position, work from home anywhere in the US.


We are looking for a Ruby lover to join our team. We are part of a team doing some work with Veterans. Yes, it is a government job, but before you swipe left, take a sec to read about the opportunity.


We are a very modern shop. We have a React /Ruby/Drupal stack based on Ruby services/APIs on the back end. We have a full DevOps pipe line and deploy va.gov daily. For a government web site, that's pretty solid. We are working towards continuous delivery and we will get there. We embrace good agile practices (we don't harass our POs about velocity) and are outcome-focused. We do discovery sprints, we get to talk directly to veterans about what they want, and we are doing real Human Centered Design (HCD) and Design Driven Development. Our teams consist of researchers, visual designers, UI/UX designers, FE and BE engineering, content writers, and even copy editors. If you want to be directly impactful to your end user (veterans, in our case) this is the job to apply for.


Here is what we are looking for:

  1. You love Ruby.
  2. You love to code.
  3. You love to be empowered to make decisions on architecture and stack.
  4. Understand that there are other design patterns besides MVC.
  5. Understand load and performance testing as well as usability testing.
  6. Want to make the DevOps pipeline better than it is.


I also thought this contract was not real until I joined. Our client is as modern as they get with product-focused and outcome-based thinking. They are passionate about helping people and are looking for more people to join their team with the same mindset.


If you want a startup environment that uses Slack/Git/ZenHub where you don't work stupid hours for sweat equity, please reach out to me. We are also creating an HCD community of practice and are looking for talented folks to help out out on the technical side.
