Ruby Developer

at toucanBox in London

We have an opportunity for a software developer to join the engineering team at toucanBox in a permanent position at our head office in Hammersmith, London.

Key benefits:

- Great environment and team, at a company with an educational mission
- Great tech stack (mostly Ruby & Javascript (Vue.js), also Go, Python, R, Docker and solid CI toolchain)
- A flexible approach to getting things done, lots of collaboration and plenty of autonomy too.

The engineering team develop our bespoke subscription management and payments system, our customer facing web applications and those that power our manufacturing and logistics centre near Heathrow. The majority of our application code is Ruby, but we use golang for our queue workers and, for our data analysis, R and Python. The bulk of our front-end apps are in Vue.js but we are very open minded about the use of the right technologies for the right projects. We believe in TDD and pairing, have an increasingly satisfying CI pipeline and deployment tools and work in a loosely defined and flexible agile way.

We all enjoy the freedom to scope and develop projects with a high degree of autonomy, spend time on personal projects, personal development and conferences and are welcome to open source code. Being essentially a children's toy company makes this a very family oriented workplace too - oh and there's a dog.

Our stack:

Ruby / Sinatra web apps
Ruby on Rails web apps
Go workers
Vue.js client side apps
Middleman.rb static website
Docker based production / dev environments
Redshift data warehouse
Concourse & Travis CI

Opportunity to grow and evolve the role into whatever you make it
Competitive startup salary
