Sr. Ruby on Rails Engineer

Posted on December 24

at Lux Delux, Inc.

Job Description
Up-and-coming luxury lifestyle startup (that’s us) seeks experienced Ruby on Rails developer (you, hopefully) to assist our dynamic engineering and mobile team on a contract-to-hire basis.

Who we are:

We’re a tight-knit, vibrant startup based in San Francisco’s SoMa neighborhood, currently building some amazing products. Our employees are veterans of some of the biggest names in the tech industry (think: Zappos,, Clear Channel), and we’re currently working across a range of industries to bring some really cool services to our growing member base.

Who we’re looking for:

A Rails engineer that understands the why of what they do. Having an opinion and understanding the reason behind it is important; it leads to better understanding of the stack, a fuller exchange of ideas, and greater self-confidence in one’s work. Flexibility is also key: no one knows everything, so flexibility in decision making allows for a variety of new approaches and hopefully arriving at a better solution.

Ideal candidate:

Our ideal candidate has been around the Rails block. Maybe you've launched some of your own projects. Maybe you’ve produced a few decent sized company apps. Either way, you know this Rails thing inside out:
  • You've dabbled in other frameworks – Django, Play, Spring, Express - but always come back to Rails because it just fits
  • You can ship first, refactor and optimize later
  • You’re TDD all the way
  • You're focused on real analytics and measurements vs. the Rails can't scale hype.
  • You're not afraid to install your own OS services (as opposed to renting others)
  • You've at least heard of O.K.R. and Kanban
  • You’re familiar with Stripe, Twilio, Phaxio, and Subtle Data

Most importantly, you’ve got a can-do attitude and truly love what you do. We’re looking for a good culture fit, so be prepared to dazzle with both your technical knowledge and compatibility.

Our tech stack:
  • Rails 3.2.9
  • Ruby 1.9.3
  • Core gems: Haml/Rgeo/Transitions state machine/Rufus scheduler
  • CentOS 6.x, Nginx, Unicorn
  • Postgres 9.2 (with hstore!)
  • Active Admin
  • Some backbone with Coffeescript
  • Rackspace and Linode

What we offer:
  • Competitive salary
  • Meaningful equity
  • Full benefits (medical, dental, vision)
  • The full complement of tech perks: flexible paid time off, monthly transportation coverage, top-of-the-line laptop and monitor
