Ruby Backend Engineer

What you’ll do at RenoFi

Our team is focused on crafting an experience that makes the complex process of financing a renovation accessible, easy to understand, and even a bit whimsical at times (thanks to our fantastic product design team!). On a given day, we might be working on the interfaces that will help homeowners navigate the process of financing their renovation, or the systems that enable our lending partners.

We're still a small team. You’ll have a ton of impact and work across a number of areas. You'll work with the team to build new product functionality from start to finish as well as polish the existing product. You'll contribute in the product process, exploring options to solve our customers' needs, thinking through system design and scalability, and ultimately implementing features across the stack.

We work within a microservices architecture running on GCP. We use Ruby, Google Cloud SQL, GraphQL, Redis, Sidekiq, RabbitMQ, Docker, and Kubernetes. Our frontend is built in React with TypeScript. We use a lot open source technology and encourage finding ways to make components of our applications open source in return - you can see more at on our Github page.

What you'll bring to the team
  • Senior level of proficiency with Ruby or similar language
  • Writing well-tested database-driven and API-centric applications
  • Extremely proficient with SQL and API design and implementation; GraphQL is a plus
  • Experience working within a microservices-based containerized environment using tools like Docker and Kubernetes is a plus.
  • Experience with automated testing (unit/integration/e2e)
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Participate in on-call rotations as required by the team lead

We are committed to hiring and cultivating a diverse team. If you are uncertain about whether you meet our requirements, please apply anyway!

We are a globally distributed team

RenoFi has been built from the start as a fully distributed team with an intentional focus on growing a strong team and culture that spans timezones and nationalities. Here's one fun example!

Please highlight any prior experience working remotely when applying. US or GMT-adjacent timezones will be prioritized.

RenoFi offers competitive cash and equity compensation. Some benefit offerings will vary from country to country. In the United States, we offer competitive health and retirement plans. All staff across the globe enjoy a flexible vacation policy.
