Rivo Commerce: Ruby on Rails Engineer with Shopify App Experience

    Headquarters: United States


    👋 Howdy! Stuart here, founder and Head of Engineering at Rivo

    Are you a Full-Stack Rails engineer with 5+ years of experience?
    Interested in working on the bleeding edge of what Rails has to offer when it comes to new features and developments (Rails 7 & Hotwire)?
    Would building and scaling a fast-growing SaaS company while sticking to Rails best practices fire you up?

    If so, awesome! Keep reading!

    About the job

    With the help of our small team, (and some awesome team members at Thoughtbot), we’ve built an amazing platform on Rails that has scaled wonderfully so far. 
    To give a small indication, we process roughly 20-30M Sidekiq Jobs per day and are adding 8-10M db rows per day.
    Your job is to help us scale as a Full-Stack Rails Engineer.
    This is a remote, full-time role (40+ hours/week).

    How Are We Different?

    We might lose you here 🙂 
    We believe in writing Rails in a particular style, sticking close to standardrb and general Rails best practices.
    If a feature takes our competitors 8 weeks to build, we build a solid MVP in 8-10 days. We utilize the 80/20 principle to focus on what matters and just ship. Of course, we look at the usage metrics, then come back and complete the other 20% over time.
    If this sounds like your style, we’d love to chat!

    Who you are

    You’re self-driven and work autonomously with limited guidance
    You can operate in a high-octane environment
    You utilize the Pareto Principle (80/20)
    You prefer async meetings and moving fast
    You have a profound passion for Rails best practice

    What will you be responsible for

    Collaborate with cross-functional teams to understand and optimize products
    Design and architect scalable and maintainable Ruby on Rails applications
    Write high-quality, clean, and viable code following best practices and design patterns and implement new features and functionalities within the existing applications
    Write and maintain unit tests, integration tests, and end-to-end tests to ensure the reliability of the application
    Perform debugging and troubleshooting to identify and fix issues promptly
    Collaborate with teams to ensure smooth deployment and continuous integration processes and participate in configuring and maintaining the deployment pipeline and monitoring systems


    5+ years of professional software development experience with Ruby / Ruby on Rails
    Having experience in the Shopify ecosystem, particularly the shopify_app and shopify_api gems are a HUGE plus
    In-depth knowledge of database systems, particularly relational databases (e.g., Postgres, Sidekiq and Redis)
    The ability to adjust to our high-octane workflow. One of our core values is to create what works in its simplest form and iterate based on metrics and feedback. We don’t have long release cycles 🤗
    The ability to work in EST or PDT timezone, or at least overlap by 5 hours
    Ability to write efficient and optimized code, following best practices and design patterns
    Strong analytical and problem-solving abilities to tackle complex technical challenges
    Excellent communication skills to effectively collaborate with cross-functional teams, including product managers, designers, and other engineers

    Having a stress-free work environment

    Things we avoid 🤮

    Egos & Drama
    Wasting time


    Salary is negotiable and based on experience. Everyone should earn what they feel is fair. This is a remote, full-time role (40+ hours/week).
