Senior Ruby on Rails Developer (Drip Product Team)

We promise you haven’t worked with anyone like us before.  We’re a Minneapolis, MN-based early-stage tech company that’s changing the way businesses do marketing, lead generation, and conversion rate optimization online.  With a growing team that works closely together, we move fast and enjoy what we do.

This position is for Drip, a SaaS application that recently became part of the Leadpages family.  If you wind up working with us, you'll witness first-hand how a small SaaS team maintains double-digit growth every month (and how we scale our technology to handle it).

As a Senior Ruby on Rails Developer on our team, you’ll work on a small product team in a gorgeous Rails codebase helping to design, develop, and ship production features that are used by thousands of customers. We are looking for strong developers who have focused primarily on web app development and have solid experience building fast, powerful code. This position will consist of tackling interesting problems, collaborating cross-departmentally and building an awesome product.

Come join the fun and build something great with us!

What you’ll do:

Your day-to-day responsibilities will shift and grow but to start with, you will:

  • Build and deploy a production feature your first week on the job
  • Work with a front-end developer to build and deploy new features and optimize performance of existing features
  • Write unit tests for your code to maintain our current 92% test coverage (we have 2.5 lines of tests for every line of production code)
  • Tackle interesting problems, with the time to solve them correctly
  • Build your legacy in a gorgeous production SaaS app used on thousands of production websites
  • Work directly with two SaaS founders on a highly-effective software team

What you’ve done:

You have a unique combination of skills, talents, and mindset, including:

  • At least 3 years of full-time Rails experience
  • A deep knowledge of Ruby and Rails 4
  • Experience with modern unit testing practices
  • An ability to both understand and design complex architectures that scale
  • Experience working on web applications with hundreds or thousands of users
  • Experience with the following is a plus (but not required): PostgreSQL, Redis, Elasticsearch, node.js, Go, AWS, Minitest, Ansible, JavaScript/CoffeeScript

Who you are:

  • Being detail-oriented isn’t just a soundbite for you, but one of your genuine qualities.
  • What you don’t know, you’ll jump right in and learn. You can teach yourself whatever you need to know and you’re not afraid to go find solutions to difficult problems that crop up.  Technology is your friend, not your foe.
  • You never say “That’s not my job.”
  • You work well with others, with a strong desire to find the best solution to any problem.

Who we are:

Leadpages was thrilled to make #148 on the 2016 Inc. 5000 list (we were #2 in Minnesota) and to be named a Star Tribune Top Workplace in both 2015 and 2016.  To learn more about the teams that have helped us achieve these honors, we invite you to visit our Instagram, Facebook, and About pages.

This position is for a small product team inside Leadpages, working on a separate application called Drip.  Working with us gives you the best of both worlds: the intimacy, influence, and speed of a small development team (currently 6 developers), but all the perks of a well-funded parent company (stable, health insurance, stock options, 401(k), etc.)

Both of Drip’s team leads are developers, and everyone on the team has a technical bent.  As such, we are a developer-focused team that's a haven for expanding your technical chops.

We place a high emphasis on code quality, test coverage, and UI/UX. We spend a lot of time making Drip look gorgeous both inside and out.

We consider working for a successful early-stage tech company to be a lifestyle choice rather than a job choice. You will work hard and face exciting challenges, but our positions come with amazing advantages and fulfillment to those who earn them.  If you bring your ‘A game’ to the table, here’s what we’ll bring:

  • Competitive pay, benefits, and equity.
  • 2 (yes, two) work-from-home days per week.
  • A gorgeous, bright office, conveniently located in Downtown Minneapolis.
  • A fully-stocked snack bar and drink fridge to keep you fueled.
  • Relocation reimbursement, as needed.  Please note: residence in or relocation to Minneapolis / St. Paul, MN is our one non-negotiable.
  • The chance to learn from some of the best people in the business, including our fiercely compassionate leadership team.
  • Career development isn’t just idle chit-chat but a tangible outcome of our robust People & Culture function. In 2016, we were overjoyed to give promotions to 27% of our stellar employees.
  • Challenging and meaningful problems to solve - you will invariably make a difference and impact.
  • A vibrant and devoted team, who still finds time for fun.
  • Finally, no politics and no jerks.

At Leadpages, we strive to create an inclusive workplace that upholds the dignity of all people. We value, respect, and celebrate everyone’s individualities and honor their unique strengths from all different walks of life. We believe that embracing diversity of thought and perspective encourages collaboration that leads to product (and people!) innovation, diverse products and a successful business.

Sound like you?

To apply, please submit your tailored resume (using the “Apply” or “Submit Resume” button), a link to your LinkedIn, Github, and Stack Overflow profiles, and a cover letter explaining why you feel you are a fit for this position. We won’t be able to individually respond to all applicants, but if we feel you’re a strong match, someone will be in touch within 5 business days. Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!
