Global Talent is looking for a Ruby on Rails Full Stack Engineer on behalf of Quorso, a UK startup.

What is Quorso?

In today's world management needs to be more agile, simple, human. 

Quorso's intelligent management platform is revolutionizing store management, helping retailers plug the 8% sales leaked every day from inefficient and ineffective store execution. Quorso data engine gives every store 3 top priority daily actions, guaranteed to drive sales, waste and other KPIs. And even better, measures, learns and scales the actions that work. 

Voted one of the UK's top 50 startups in 2019, they are working with some of the biggest businesses in the UK and the US and recently received Series A backing from the $100bn Canadian pension fund OMERS.


Working at Quorso:

Quorso is a technology company with a team that aims for the stars but has its feet firmly on the ground. We're bold and strive to make an impact in the world, but we're practical about how approach it.

As a young company, we're still shaping our culture and our team. We would love for you to be a part of the journey we're taking towards achieving this.

We're well aware that job specifications sometimes aren't the best ways to truly get an idea of what a company is like, and whether it would be a right fit for you. If you think you may be a good fit for the company, get in touch anyway! 


The Technology:

As a full-stack engineer at Quorso, we believe having the following technology traits will set you up to be successful here:

You are comfortable with a Unix-like environment and containers. All of our servers are dockerized Linux based environments. We expect you to be well-versed in common Linux commands and understand its core concepts. If none of the above sounds strange or daunting, then you shouldn't have too much of a problem getting up and running with our team in no time!

You have practical experience building high-quality web-based software using Ruby on Rails. If you've worked for a startup, large company or anything in-between and have practical experience in delivering high-quality software to end-users for at least two years, then we would love to speak with you. We use Ruby as our go-to language unless the solution requires otherwise, so a desire to get up to speed quickly with Ruby is a must.

—  An advanced level of SQL is highly accepted. You are happy to mess with queries analysis and debugging whenever required. You understand why it's sometimes useful to reach for raw SQL instead of an abstracted ORM.

You've used at least one major JavaScript framework and are comfortable writing code for the front-end. You embrace the event-driven asynchronous nature of the web, you understand the DOM tree, you have an opinion on an ideal way to manage complex states (we use React + Redux for this), and you can appreciate the usefulness of componentising re-usable parts of the front-end.

You understand why testing applications is important. You're perfectly comfortable writing code which is well-tested. You understand the concepts used in testing frameworks, such as assertion, setup, teardown, dependency injection, and can reach for them to build easy-to-understand and well-tested code. 

The Human:

An engineer at Quorso isn't just a function of how much code they can spew out in a day. They are an integral part of a product-focused team, working together to achieve a unified goal. We believe in the human at Quorso – it's what our entire product is based on. Quorso values humans with the following traits:

Intrigued and fascinated about building high-quality products. You may have had previous experience working as an engineer in a product team, or have a genuine fascination with quality digital products and their positive impact on people's lives.

You demonstrate a passion for learning and self-improvement. You're pro-active by nature and hold yourself to a high standard of quality and professionalism in your approach.

— You bring yourself and all of your flaws to the office and you demonstrate humility and an ability to give and receive candid feedback.

You're ready for start-up life. You have a willingness to roll up sleeves and wade outside your area of responsibility when necessary. You're interested in helping to shape and build our culture and who we are as a team


We offer:

Working at Quorso has its benefits. We believe in providing the best environment to allow you to do your best work, and we currently offer the following:

— A competitive salary

— Top of the range equipment to help you do your job to the highest possible standard

— A health and training grant of £1,000 to support continuous self-improvement and satisfaction of curiosity

— Private healthcare 

— Holiday allowance of 25 days per year, with the offices generally closed between Christmas and New Year

— Flexible working environment

— Equity in the company (working on this for non-UK employees
