Scout: Senior Ruby on Rails Developer at Scout (Toronto, ON, Canada) (Toronto, ON, Canada)

Posted: Aug 13, 2019

Scout RFP is looking to add a Senior Software Engineer to help us keep shipping features to customers who love our products.

Day-to-day, they’ll be responsible for taking high-fidelity prototypes and transforming them into fully functional features with a solid and secure API backend, clean front-end components, and automated tests. High-quality code and the ability to deliver milestones all the way to production are our key metrics for success.

You’re probably keen to hear about our tech stack:

  • Our application is built on Ruby on Rails.

  • We take full advantage of Postgres with a trigger-based time machine, SQL views, and a willingness to drop from ActiveRecord to raw SQL when it makes sense.

  • AWS is our product’s home.

  • We’re really enjoying React and Redux with ES6 and SCSS.

  • Sidekiq, Redis, ElasticSearch and websockets definitely play their parts.

And curious about our engineering workflow:

  • Each month we agree to milestones to deliver by the end of the month.

  • We release to production once a week.

  • Jira and Slack help us coordinate across continents and time zones.

  • GitHub helps us improve each other's code, and our well-tuned linter keeps reviews quick on style and heavy on substance.

  • Our QA team works hard to catch issues, bugs, and cross-browser glitches before we merge a pull request into the mainline, and again before release in the weekly smoke test.

  • CircleCI Enterprise gives us the power to continually improve our automated testing infrastructure.

We'll promise you a great company, good compensation, an ever-improving benefits program and an equity stake in a company with great career advancement opportunities.
