Senior Rails Engineer

Boise, ID ~ February 16, 2017


Headquarters: Boise, ID

ConvertKit is looking for a Senior Rails engineer with significant Javascript experience.  Come join our amazing, rapidly growing company!

About the team

The engineers at ConvertKit are smart, highly motivated and highly productive developers who care greatly about the craft of coding. We champion learning, bettering ourselves, and teaching to the rest of the team.

About ConvertKit

  • We are a fully remote company, scattered across 8 states and 4 countries.
  • Bootstrapped, profitable, and growing very quickly (See for yourself! https://convertkit.baremetrics.com)
  • We put a high emphasis on work / life balance, and we value and strive for 40 hour work weeks.
  • We have a positive, vibrant, and genuine culture.

About the role

You'll be part of our awesome engineering team, helping to build our product. We primarily use Rails, Mysql, Redis and Sidekiq to get the job done. We're facing real (fun) scaling challenges because of our incredible growth. Ideally
you've been there, done that before.

We're also looking for someone who cares deeply about writing clean, maintainable, well-tested code, and generally tends to leave code in a better state than when they encountered it.

In addition to help building out the product, you'll be at the forefront of helping us move our frontend Javascript code forward. We're interested in someone who has significant experience writing and managing large Javascript-intensive applications. 

About you

You’re a perfect fit for this role if you’ve got experience developing software, love pragmatic OO design for its long-term cost benefits, and testing. Clean code is not just a phrase for you. Given our high rate of growth, you'll need to have strong knowledge of scaling Rails applications up.

You should also have a great working knowledge of ES6, Webpack, and React, and should have a good knowledge of the Javascript landscape and tooling.

We're a 100% remote company, so you should be autonomous and comfortable in a remote role.


  • 3 weeks paid vacation, 7 paid holidays, and 3 sick days / year.  4 weeks paid vacation after a year of employment.
  • The team gathers twice a year in-person for fantastic team retreats (https://youtu.be/1L0en33hfqI)
  • Excellent Health benefits.
  • 8 weeks paid maternity / 4 weeks paid paternity leave.
  • $2500 equipment allowance given every 2 years.
  • 4% matching 401k.
  • Conference credit.
  • $1,000 yearly vacation bonus.
