\nPosition Title: Back End Developer\n\nReports to: CEO\n\nOrganization: Politech\n\nPosition Location: Remote\n\nAbout Politech\n\nPolitech creates digital products and technology solutions for nonprofits, campaigns, and foundations. Our primary focus has been to assist progressive organizations, particularly those influencing the policy and political landscape, that advocate on behalf of underserved communities. Our software platforms have been a vital part of keeping such organizations successful and efficient.\n\nWho We Are\n\nWe are deeply committed to public service and progressive social change. We are 100% minority owned and operated with a diverse team, inclusive of gender, ethnicity, and race.\n\nPosition Summary\n\nThis role will focus on dev ops and back end/API development, but the ideal candidate will have a full stack skillset. Our stack is Postgres/Ruby/Rails/React. Right now we have a mix of HTML+jQuery and React but we are in the process of moving toward split app architecture. As part of that process we are building out a REST API and revamping our deployment environment. The latter would be the main focus of this position, but it would also involve pitching in on the React side of things when required.\n\nWe are seeking someone with excellent communication skills who will work as a team player and a self-starter. The ideal candidate should have mid-level experience, but they won’t be placed in some hierarchical structure. This position will work directly with the other developers, and will report directly to the CEO. The individual should be highly motivated to make a difference and to have an impact on moving progressive issues forward. Our employees’ opinions matter to us for the success of the company, and we want you to bring creative solutions to make our work better for our clients. Interest and understanding of politics and campaigns is a plus but not required.\n\nOur employees are from all over the country, and bring varying levels of experience to the company. First and foremost, we value honesty from all employees within our firm. We strongly encourage a work environment centered on open communication and conscientiousness. Working remotely gives our employees the ability to better maintain a work-life balance, but we expect that productivity and job performance will not be sacrificed.\n\nWe are a fully remote team so you will need to be flexible to work with staff in different time zones when necessary.\n\n\n\n\n\nResponsibilities\n\n\n* Improve and maintain deployment environment and tools\n\n* Design and build efficient, reusable, and reliable Ruby code\n\n* Integration of data storage solutions Postgresql and Redis\n\n* Expand and improve test coverage\n\n* Identify bottlenecks and bugs then devise solutions to these problems\n\n* Help maintain code quality, organization, and automation\n\n* Integrations with external APIs\n\n\n\n\nSkills\n\n\n* Experience setting up and maintaining deployment environments using Linux and Nginx\n\n* Knowledge of best practices and IT operations in an always-up, always-available service\n\n* Experience with automation/configuration management using either Puppet, Chef, or an equivalent\n\n* Ability to use a wide variety of open source technologies and cloud services\n\n* Strong experience with SQL and PostgreSQL\n\n* Advanced understanding of object-oriented programming\n\n* Experience with Ruby on Rails, along with common libraries such as Sidekiq\n\n* Intermediate understanding of the syntax of Ruby and its nuances\n\n* Intermediate understanding of Javascript and Jquery\n\n* Familiarity with front end frameworks such as Vue, React or Angular\n\n* Familiarity with concepts of MVC, ORM, and RESTful design patterns\n\n* A knack for writing clean, readable Ruby code\n\n* Ability to integrate multiple data sources and databases into one system\n\n* Understanding of fundamental design principles behind a scalable application\n\n* Able to create database schemas that represent and support business processes\n\n* Able to implement automated testing platforms and unit tests\n\n* Proficient understanding of code versioning tools such as Git\n\n* Familiarity with development aiding tools such as Bower, Bundler, Rake, etc.\n\n* Familiarity with continuous integration\n\n\n\n\nCompensation: Salary commensurate with knowledge, experience, and qualifications.\n\nPolitech is an Equal Opportunity Employer that greatly values diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.\n\nHow to apply\n\nApply with your GitHub account (or similar), resume, and cover letter. Introduce yourself to us as a colleague. Show us your future here! We value great writers, so be yourself, be creative. Stock cover letters won’t do. Tell us why you want this job. Let us know why you want to work at Politech and not somewhere else.\n\nYou should be able to show samples of your previous work upon request.
