GovDelivery is looking for a skilled and highly motivated Software Engineer to join our development team. We are using an agile methodology very similar to Scrum. The practices we value above all else are TDD, Collective Code Ownership, Sustainable Pace, and anything that fosters an open, collaborative work environment.
We have a lot of irons in the fire, but our primary responsibility is a SaaS platform composed of web apps, web services, and background processes written in Ruby (on Rails) and Java (on Mule). The platform is already supporting hundreds of clients and millions of requests per week, and we’re constantly enhancing it on an aggressive monthly release cycle. New green-field projects are on the horizon as well.
The successful candidate will have the skills needed to design and implement new features and a penchant for helping our support teams maintain our production applications. He or she will have experience with most of the following:
- Test-Driven Development
- Rails (preferably version 2.3)
- HAML / HTML
- Linux shell
Enthusiasm for learning new things is important too. Here are some other technologies we embrace:
- Mule ESB
- Oracle PL/SQL
- Web Services (REST and SOAP)
We’re looking for candidates who meet the following criteria:
- 6+ months of RoR experience and/or 2+ years of web application development experience
- Ability to communicate and work on an open, collaborative team
- Devotion to the craft of software development and a commitment to quality
- Self-motivated with a passion for learning new things
The compensation package will be tailored to the candidate commensurate with candidate’s experience and skills. Compensation will include base salary and performance-based incentives. Benefits include paid vacation and holidays, medical and dental plan, and matching 401(k).
