Senior Backend Ruby Engineer | Social Network | Fully Remote (UK or the EU) | Up to £95,000

We are looking for a Senior Backend Engineer with strong Ruby and PostgreSQL experience.

Our client is an online social community and support network that helps women all over the world form new friendships, find their local communities, and provide support to each other while navigating motherhood. Since 2017, over 1 million women have joined. They’ve grown quickly across the US and other countries and received numerous accolades.

We believe that great teams build great products – We’re a multidisciplinary, distributed, diverse, and experienced team of 25 people. We’re passionate about creating a great product that actually does social good.

We thrive on collaboration and experiment to discover solutions to a problem.

This role might be for you if:

-You want to build technology for good.
-You have 5+ years of backend engineering experience, including 3+ years with Ruby on Rails.
-You can work with relational databases (PostgreSQL, MySQL) with large and complex datasets (100s of tables, 100s of millions of records).
-You have strong computer science fundamentals, from data structures to algorithmic complexity.
-You have worked in a startup environment.
-You have worked remotely, and/or with a distributed team.
-You are fluent in written and spoken English.

Competitive compensation. Your package will vary based on your skill, experience and location. If you live in the UK, your gross salary will be between 75,000 GBP and 100,000 GBP per year. If you live in continental Europe, your compensation will be between 90,000 EUR and 120,000 EUR (or local currency).

Work anywhere. We care about the work done, not where you do it from. Most of us work remotely full time, and we’re equally happy if you’d prefer to work from our London HQ or anywhere in Europe. You just need a suitable workspace and a good internet connection. (Note that we do not currently consider candidates living outside the UK or the EU)

Flexible schedule. Many of us are parents and/or have various personal life commitments. While we typically work around 40 hours a week, how you schedule your work hours is up to you.

Travel to meet the team (post-pandemic!) We know from experience that face time matters in distributed teams. Every 2 months, we gather the team for 3 to 4 days somewhere in Europe and use that time to run workshops and socialise.
