  • The ability to write highly readable, maintainable, and efficient back-end code.
  • The skills to account for database efficiency when writing back-end code.
  • Comfortable with dipping into the front-end when necessary, e.g. to connect controller actions with forms.
  • Comfortable working with third-party APIs, both with those that provide Ruby bindings and those that do not, and connecting them with existing code.
  • A high standard for creating robust and reliable software.
  • Ready to handle multiple responsibilities and changing requirements for applications.
  • Can work efficiently in-house or in a remote environment.

What you'll be doing
