Senior Ruby on Rails Engineer

We're looking for a Ruby / Rails developer to help us do amazing things with our personal productivity service. This job will primarily involve building new capabilities for the main RescueTime web application, which is used by hundreds of thousands of people each week to understand and improve the way they spend their time. You should have a strong understanding of Ruby on Rails, Javascript and CSS. Previous experience with d3.js, Foundation, Sass, web hooks, and Oauth2 will be really helpful. Experience delivering content to to mobile views a plus, as is some background in reporting / graphing / data analysis.

Technologies you will be using:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • Javascript, d3.js
  • CSS, HTML, Sass, Foundation
  • MySQL

Additionally, the ability to pick up a new technology quickly is important. Other parts of the RescueTime stack use Python, C++, Objective-C, and Java. Having a passion for personal productivity (example: already being a RescueTime user ;) ) is a major plus.

The RescueTime team is distributed throughout the United States. All applicants must be authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis. We have hubs in Atlanta and Nashville but we also have a remote work policy.
