  • At Zaarly, we are fixing what is broken in local home services by building great tools and providing exceptional service to local businesses and homeowners. In order to scale to new markets, we are improving and automating a lot of our manual operations and making our product more useful, usable, and delightful across the board.

    We’re growing, and we are looking for a few talented full-stack software developers to join our team, either remotely or in Kansas City.

    Why this job is important

    Working with a small team of very talented engineers, designers, and operators, you’ll play an important role building an incredibly unique, local marketplace. We’re a small company and a tight-knit team working on problems no other business has solved – everyone on the team is mission-critical.

    We are only interested in win-win arrangements with local small businesses. We never sell ads or leads, and we don’t require contracts or commitments. Zaarly only makes money when we deliver real value to the businesses who partner with us, and we work hard to do exactly that every day.

    Responsibilities

    • Building features that small business owners and homeowners rely on daily to get real jobs done. There are so many interesting problems to solve around building and maintaining trust, creating efficiencies for different kinds of small, local businesses, creating transparency in the market – the list goes on and on.

    • Collaborating with our designers to understand our users and guide product decisions. Ultimately, every one of our users will interact with code you’ve written, so we hope you care deeply about their experience.

    • Improving our codebase. Our team constantly strives to be more and more intentional about writing clean, maintainable code that we can be proud of. We strive to be good at both giving and receiving code review.

    • Helping to keep big projects on track without a lot of day-to-day intervention from managers. We’re looking for engineers who take a holistic view of what they’re working on and are more than just ticket-takers.

    Requirements

    • You’re an experienced developer who is comfortable working across the full stack of a modern, well-tested Ruby on Rails application. In addition to Rails, we work with Postgres, ES6 Javascript, Sass, Turbolinks, Stimulus, and Rspec.

    • You have 3-6 years of professional experience, most of which has been spent working with a team on a web app with real users.

    • You’re a life-long learner and a student of your craft – both teachable and eager to teach in order to improve our team.

    • Either you are interested in working in our Kansas City office, or you have the skills you need to be a happy and successful remote team member. (Our product team is roughly 50% remote, so both of these options are totally fine. We try to bring the remote team members to town about four times a year.)

  • We are looking for a hands-on, product-oriented engineering leader with a “find a way or make a way” attitude excited for our fast-paced environment and remote but highly-collaborative culture.

    This opportunity is for someone excited for autonomy, ownership, and breadth of responsibility.

    We are a brand new, VC-backed company built for speed:

    • Small team, fast-paced, we all get a lot done by everyone wearing many hats.

    • We are serious about optimizing our time and staying focused on the most important goals and outcomes.

    • We have remote team members and are completely on board with 100% remote work.

    • We coordinate using a kanban board, hold a daily standup, and mostly communicate via ad hoc video calls and Slack.

    • Our software uses modern technologies, such as NodeJS and React, and it lives on the Google Cloud Platform.
