  • BookingSync (European timezones)
    2 days ago

    BookingSync is more than a vacation rental solution for hosts and agencies; it is a platform for hundreds of applications and developers. We need an excellent engineer to take on the challenges of developing integration with multiple APIs from our partners, beautifully designed micro/macro-services, modeling complex domain and doing all that following TDD and writing a code of excellent quality.

    We are growing fast and so are our requirements for scalability and stability. We are no longer at a scale where adding X number of servers solves all the issues. Database sharding, replicating data via message queues/distributed streams, optimizing response times in APIs to the max, integration with multiple services coming from our own ecosystem and numerous third-party services, and very soon dealing with big data - those are the things you can surely expect to be challenged by.

    We are also a fully-remote async/distributed company across the entire world without a physical office. If traveling is your passion and you highly value location-independence, BookingSync is the right place for you.

    You will need to have:

    • Strong experience with Ruby on Rails

    • Proficiency in backend development in general

    • Solid design and architecture skills

    • Ability to demonstrate that with the right approach Rails can scale easily

    • Ability to communicate effectively with both internal and external development teams

    • Experience with relational databases and SQL (we're on Postgres). Experience with other databases will be a plus

    • A strong commitment to quality

    • Excellent written and spoken English

    • Experience with remote work and/or a solid work ethic that makes it possible to thrive in a remote-only environment

    • Care for the greater good, BookingSync is not just a software company, we give back to humanitarian, solidarity, environmental & ecological causes from 10% to 50% of our profit.

    It would be great if you had experience with:

    • Messaging solutions (RabbitMQ, Kafka, etc.)

    • DDD/CQRS/ES, Clean Architecture

    • Contributing to development community through code, documentation, mentoring, teaching, speaking and all other forms

    • Short terms rentals or travel industry
