If you’re any good at Ruby, the chance that you’re fiddling your thumbs at home, anxiously refreshing your inbox 20 times a minute hoping for a job offer, is rather slim. We know how it is.
Which is why we’ll try to sell ourselves to you here.
Ahum. Here it comes.
First of all, we build a hell of a product and our customers love us. Even our customers’ customers love us. Silverfin solves a very real problem: it automates a large chunk of the repetitive tasks that people working in financial services spend their time on, and improves communication with their customers.
To give you a sense of scale: our database exceeds 3TB in size*, and our largest table recently crossed the 8 billion row mark. We interface with more than 30 different external APIs, and provide third parties an API of our own.
We’re a remote-first engineering team with offices in Ghent, London and Copenhagen which you can visit if you’d like. Still, most of us work remotely, even those who are local. We’re based all over Europe, and without Slack we’d be lonely, now we just zap in and out of the zone as we wish. Or not: we encourage judicious use of the DnD function, and recommend async communication over disturbing synchronous pings.
We’d be really happy to welcome you in our dev channel, but it’s not just virtual: we make sure we regularly get to see each other IRL too. Twice a year we fly the whole engineering team together to a different location in Europe, and at least once a year we join up with the rest of the company to not become too siloed.
We work in small, focused teams of around 5 people, each team taking ownership of a part of the application. When developing new features, the team is responsible for both the backend as well as the frontend part.
You’ll be supported by our crazy good UI designer who writes HTML and CSS components into a reusable UI-kit, and even builds Vue prototypes where necessary, handling compatibility problems with different browsers for you, and making sure everything is responsive too.
On the other side of the spectrum is our genius ops team who keeps things running smoothly, making sure deploys happen correctly, and will work with you when issues should arise.
Our stack is Vue.js and vanilla JS with a sprinkling of jQuery on the frontend and an up-to-date Rails monolith on the backend. We use PostgreSQL and Redis for persistence and caching, and everything is running on a Kubernetes cluster in Google Cloud. We use GitLab, Quip and Slack for everyday tasks and Zoom as our remote conferencing tool of choice. No code gets deployed without a thorough code-review by a peer, testing is a must, our sprints are called cycles and last 3 weeks, and sometimes we even finish everything that we committed to in time.
We’re looking for somebody who’s really great at developing in Ruby and Ruby on Rails.
*: Our ops team noted that this actually isn’t that hard to achieve if you’re indexing all the things, but it still sounds impressive, right?
