Ruby Engineer | World-leading Marketplace | £65,000

GRIT Tech Talent is working with a world-leading marketplace to hire an ambitious and passionate Ruby Engineer.

Formed in 2012 our client has raised over $30m in funding to date, been named one of Wired Magazine's ‘100 Hottest Start-Ups’ and The Financial Times’ most ‘Disruptive Companies’!

We are looking for a Ruby Engineer to join a team building an amazing user experience for customers as well as all the internal tools to help the rest of the team make life look easy.

We’re looking for a mid to senior-level candidate who has:

  • Strong skills in Ruby and Ruby on Rails; they’re the backbone of our Stack

  • Experience of AWS (or similar) services, such as EC2, RDS and RedShift; you’ll be exposed to these in this role, even if you have no previous Ops experience

  • Frontend development; especially React and modern Javascript (ES6)

  • You’re passionate about writing good code and high-quality automated tests; we have no dedicated QA team, so it’s important for you to be able to test thoroughly

  • Knowledge of good database design and query optimisation

  • Algolia Search, Sendbird Chat, Datadog, Sidekiq, state machines, data warehousing and ETL processes

  • Experience in managing applications on cloud environments (we use Kubernetes on EKS)

  • Experience with different CI/CD tools and technologies

Your role will include:

  • Helping architect and building solutions to business-critical problems

  • Participating in interesting projects such as:

  • Building tools and recommendation engines to help match brands to their perfect short-term retail space

  • Creating a first-class communications platform

  • Providing continuous improvements in the way we collect and provide data for all teams to use when making decisions

  • Improving our deployment pipeline to reduce the time taken to get code and configuration changes into production

  • Providing necessary data and functionality to our frontend components, whether directly or through well-designed APIs

  • Experimenting with new tools and technologies to produce cutting-edge solutions to business problems

  • Be a part of a self-organising, OKR driven agile team using Kanban to ship new products


  • Competitive salary

  • Stock options. We believe everyone should be an owner.

  • Scale with the business. This role offers the potential to have an incredible career trajectory.

  • The best idea wins. Whether you’re an intern or the CFO, if you can make the case for it, we’ll make it happen.

  • Opportunities and budget for personal learning development.
