Required Qualifications :
Their Tech Stack

  • Back-end: we primarily create applications in Ruby on Rails, though we have a small number of applications with other setups: Elixir and Phoenix, Node and Sails or Express, and even some old Perl apps.

  • Front-end: we either use Bulma or craft CSS from scratch following the ideas of ITCSS. For Javascript, we generally use React, though we have some apps that use Stimulus for when React is too big of a hammer.

  • Mobile: we support native iOS development in both Objective-C and Swift. These days, though, almost all of our apps are being built in React Native.

  • Infrastructure: nearly all of our infrastructure is on AWS and managed by Terraform and chef. We are in the process of migrating to Docker containers in Kubernetes (EKS).

Don't hesitate if you don't have specific experience with our tech stack. We have a preference for folks with Ruby on Rails experience, but if you’re a strong developer with experience in related tools, we want to hear from you!


Who We Are

Our client's product is their people. To deliver the best solutions, they need as many bright and diverse minds in the room as possible, and they need to be able to learn from them once they are there. That’s why our client is working to create an environment that’s comfortable and inclusive for everyone.  They know the tech industry isn't always as welcoming as it should be. But they're happy to do the work of making it better, both at their company and in their community.


Our team is important to us and we're excited to have been recognized as both one of Built in Chicago's 50 Best Small Companies to Work For in Chicago 2019 and Inc. Magazine's America's Best Workplaces of 2019.


Our Client's Approach

For 16 years, they've built their software development consultancy around three small words and one big idea: tech done right. To them, it means more than clean code and sound design. It means doing right by their partners, by their peers and by their community.


They’re a curious and humble group of people who love to build things. Learning is the key to their culture, and they’re always looking for new skills to pick up and ways to hone their craft.  They bring that same curiosity to their clients, digging into their needs so they can make sure their design and development projects look great, work great and push client businesses forward. Their clients look to them as a strategic partner, and they make decisions that affect their long-term success.

  • The promise of minimal travel

  • A casual loft office that pairs an open floor plan with quiet rooms

  • Competitive salary

  • Aetna health insurance

  • 401k plan, including employer matching
