Job Description

Mid-Level Ruby Develoer
Remote (once a month meet up)
Health Tech
£85,000

We all know there is a HUGE crisis in the health and social care industry, and there are many companies who have created technology to help and innovate this industry that really needs love and support!

I am working with a good friend of mine and SR2 who recently exited their business and joined this brilliant tech for good company as CTO. They are a small but growing team who have recently closed their second round of funding to develop their product which helps keep vulnerable people safe and well, living in their own homes.
They now combine awesome products, the latest medical technology with a simple application to keep older people safe and well in their own homes while giving carers and families peace of mind.

The role:
Every developer in the team has a certain level of "full stack" so you'll need to be comfortable writing features that will both involve Rails/ActiveRecord/Sidekiq but also dip your toes into the view side of things.
On top of the common stack, all of their developers have, or are developing a particular skill or expertise. Some are more proficient in accessibility, others in DevOps while some live and breathe API challenges and all is welcomed.

You:
We're hiring for 2 developers, one mid-level and one experienced developer who can help with growing a team through mentorship, leading by example, and establishing best practices.
You will be driven to solve tough problems and continually consider the best ways to improve the health and wellbeing of older people.

The work is varied and includes every aspect of Rails; one week you could be integrating a new device API; the following week, you could be deep into SQL optimisation or working on some refactoring.
As part of the senior team, alongside feature development, you will be expected to contribute to the technical feature planning, spend time on designing architecture and thinking about possible ways to optimise it, as well as helping with research & development.

What you'll be working with:

Ruby on Rails 7.0
PostgreSQL
Stimulus
Turbo
Soon they plan to introduce either StimulusReflex/CableRead or use the ActionCable/Turbo
Turbo iOS / Turbo Android mobile apps
ViewComponents
Webpacker, Bootstrap 5, yarn.
Sidekiq powers all their background jobs, and they're running a ton of them.
Heroku
What you'll get:

Salary range: £70-85K p/a
Flexibility: This could be working from home, doing the school run, or life admin. They fully understand that flexibility is essential to a healthy work/life balance
Equity in the company through a share option scheme
33 days holiday, including bank holidays, plus an additional 2 days per year after 2 years of continuous service.
Pension scheme enrolment with enhanced employer contributions.
Enhanced maternity and paternity leave.
A subscription to the financial wellbeing platform
A life insurance policy
Discounts for online workouts and more than 3,000 health and fitness clubs nationwide.
A fascinating problem to solve; your feature may even save someone's life one day.
Lovely offices in a great Bristol (where they try to get together once a month.
2 stage interview, 1 30 min chat and then a follow up of a technical interview with CTO and some other members of the team
