  • Founded in 2007, Quimbee is one of the most widely used and respected study aids for law students. With a massive and growing library of case briefs, video lessons, definitions, and practice questions, Quimbee helps its members achieve academic success in law school. Quimbee can be accessed on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices.

    This position is 100% remote. All you need is an internet connection and a quiet place to work.

    Quimbee's tech team works on an agile process and has a great mix of seasoned web backend, frontend, and mobile developers. Quimbee's web and API platform is based on a monolithic Ruby on Rails application, and we make the effort to keep it updated to recent dependencies' versions. We're big believers on automated tests, and while we don't necessarily do test-first, CodeClimate rates both our maintenance and code coverage metrics with an A.

    This position is to work primarily on our web platform with an emphasis on our frontend code (views, HTML, CSS, JS) but also helping on backend work (controllers, models, serializers, query optimization, etc) whenever that's needed, so we're looking for someone with a passion for frontend but who's no stranger to backend code.

    Responsibilities

    • Design and write maintainable code following best practices, knowing that most of the time, good enough is better than perfect.
    • Help maintain and improve our frontend code, currently based on Slim, SCSS, Bootstrap, and plain JS with a mix of some jQuery. We're pushing to adopt RSJS on the JS front.
    • Help maintain and improve our backend code, including writing new features and adapting existing ones collaborating with our backend developers. We use Ruby on Rails.
    • Collaborate with teammates, the project manager, product, design, and QA teams during the whole SDLC, providing technical points of view, effort estimates, drafting or reviewing requirements, etc.
    • Take ownership of assigned projects and be responsible for communicating progress on a regular basis.
    • Participate in scheduled planning, review, and retrospective meetings on a regular basis (via videoconferencing technology)

    Task Examples

    Working with us, you could be asked to (solo or as part of a team):

    • Implement a new page from scratch from a new comp coming from our design team, leveraging existing HTML/CSS components when possible but implementing brand new ones when needed.
    • Take a raw, initial version of a new page or feature developed by our backend devs and "beautify" it by adapting its front-end code to reuse UI components and follow our style guide, in the context of our Ruby on Rails application. This requires a very good understanding of Rails' controllers and views conventions.
    • Review our existing JS code and refactor it to follow best practices.
    • Perform code reviews providing advice on how to improve code with a particular focus on Javascript.
    • Prepare and document reusable HTML/CSS/JS code components so that other developers can use them.
    • Setup a unit testing framework for our JS code and sponsor it among your teammates.
    • Work with other backend developers implementing a new API endpoint in Ruby serializing data in JSON for our mobile app.

    Requirements

    • B.S. computer science or related field
    • 5+ years of Javascript experience
    • 2+ years of Ruby on Rails experience
    • Excellent HTML & CSS experience (cross-browser compatibility, responsive media queries, flex, grid, etc.)
    • Advanced knowledge of the Javascript ecosystem (yarn, webpack, babel, etc)
    • Good understanding of SQL
    • Extensive Git (or similar) experience solving complex merging conflicts
    • Know how the web works under the hood: TCP, HTTP, DNS, IP, caches, etc.
    • Solid knowledge of OOP, software architecture, and design patterns
    • A deep understanding of the importance of building maintainable, efficient, clean code, while balancing that with the urgency of the business needs
    • Deep caring about uptime, performance, and reliability
    • The will to take responsibility for projects end-to-end from idea to completion
    • Fluency in English
    • Based in the U.S.

    Preferred Qualifications 

    • Experience with at least one programming language other than Ruby and JS
    • Familiarity with the concepts outlined in the Reasonable System for JavaScript Architecture
    • Experience working with Rails' server-generated JavaScript (SJR)
    • Experience working with JavaScript frameworks like Vue, React, Angular, etc.
    • Hosting apps in Heroku, monitoring and scaling them up/down
    • Implementing APIs for mobile apps
    • Implementing a SaaS application or with subscription-based businesses generally

    Benefits

    • Join a small team who loves what they do.
    • Work from home.
    • A competitive salary.
    • Healthcare coverage (including dental) for you and your family.
    • Untracked paid time off and sick leave.
    • 401(k) with 3% company matching.

    Join us on our mission to help the best products win.

    It's often said that:

    The best products don't win, the ones with the best distribution do.

    We're doing something about that. Blanket gives the best products an unfair advantage by giving them access to the best distribution.

    The first problem we're solving on our way to fulfill that mission is to automate the Sales Development process. That's prospecting, reaching out, crafting collateral, and booking sales demos.

    We're looking for teammates that need to see their work have an immediate impact, and enjoy fast-paced and high-growth environments. Join us and play a crucial part in building a platform that some of the most respected companies will use to increase their sales.

  • Didomi (didomi.io) helps companies get in compliance with data privacy regulations like GDPR and CCPA. We build a consent management platform that consists of apps, web components, and APIs around collecting, sharing and managing user consents. We know privacy appears to be a boring and hard problem, but we strive to make it interesting and easy to solve for our clients.

    We are looking for a senior software engineer with a focus on back-end development to join our team of 10+ people. While our main office is in Paris, we are a very distributed team and are open to people working remotely all around the world.

    What you will do

    Leveraging your experience in building and maintaining complex business applications, you will drive the development of our main APIs using Node, Feathers, PostgreSQL, DynamoDB, etc.

    We are looking for someone who is eager to:

    - Collaborate with other developers to ship new features

    - Be in charge of the overall architecture of web applications

    - Ensure that we have the right tests and structure in place to make sure that we can move quickly without breaking everything

    - Share his/her knowledge of back-end development principles and best practices with the team

    - Keep learning new technologies and be on the look-out for new ideas that we should try out

    What we are looking for

    - A JavaScript expert

    - Quality-oriented mindset: testing, code reviews, code quality, etc.

    - Awareness of performance considerations

    - A passion for simple, maintainable and readable code that balances pragmatism and performance

    How do we build our products?

    Most of our front-end applications rely on Angular 2+/Material/Redux. We love Angular but sometimes we need lightweight applications that can be embedded on thousands of websites so we also use Preact/Redux Zero for that.

    We also build mobile SDKs for Android and iOS for our clients to embed in their apps.

    Our back-end applications use Feathers JS, an amazing service-oriented Node.js framework for building REST and GraphQL APIs. We try to keep our services small and lean and use AWS Lambda/Serverless for background jobs. We leverage PostgreSQL and DynamoDB as our main databases.

    We process millions of events every day and are building our analytics platform on Kinesis Firehose, AWS S3, AWS Athena and Redash to provide an easy-to-use platform for querying and graphing events to everyone in the company and outside. You can read more about it in our blog: didomi.io/en/blog/2018/02/built-analytics-platform-day.

    We rely on a lot of AWS/GCP services (Beanstalk, Lambda, CloudWatch, S3, etc.) for building, deploying, serving, monitoring and scaling our services. We use Gitlab for our code and issues and our CI.

    Our vision as a team

    We are building a product and engineering team that is strongly committed to a high level of quality in our products and code. We believe that automation is the key to consistently achieving that along with velocity of development and joy and pride in what we deliver.

    We rely on automated tests of all sorts (unit, integration, linters, you-name-it!) and continuous integration/delivery to build flexible applications that are able to evolve without breaking. We trust that it enables engineers to focus on the quality of their code and iterate fast without fears of breaking stuff. And when we break stuff, we fix it and learn from our mistakes.

    Recruitment Process

    Our interview process usually includes interviews with tech and non-tech people and a practical exercise/discussion like a code challenge, a code review or an architecture design. We understand you already have a job, obligations (and maybe a personal life!) so we'll work with you to make sure it doesn't take up too much of your time while still providing a good basis for a very concrete discussion.

    We hope that you like what you are reading here. You are just one step away from getting started with us! Apply here and we'll be in touch within 24 hours.
