\nAt ActiveState we have made a name for ourselves providing language distros for Perl, Python and TCL. Now we’re building an ambitious Platform to build and distribute every language on the platform so that no engineer ever has to suffer dependency hell again, and we need your help to add Ruby to it!\n\nThis position is open to full-time telecommuters anywhere in North America. You can also choose to work from our headquarters in beautiful Vancouver, BC.\n\nThis position is open to both junior (including fresh out of school) and senior applicants. The salary for this position will be commensurate with your experience.\n\nWhat You’ll Be Doing\n\nAs a Ruby Language Specialist on our team, you are responsible for using your deep understanding of Ruby; it’s internals, dependency management, idioms and community to teach our Platform to build and distribute Ruby for multiple Operating Systems.  You'll be responsible for building a Ruby runtime from its source code and writing software to consume everything in the Ruby ecosystem.  Note this is not a Ruby development role, rather you'll be writing software to create custom Ruby distributions and this software won't necessarily be written in Ruby.\n\nOur day to day work practices are centered around GitHub, pull requests, code review, CI for testing, and agile development with Pivotal Tracker as our project management tool. We’re always looking to improve our practices and we expect you to help us to do so.\n\nOur team is scattered around the US and Canada, so we coordinate with each other and the rest of the company using Slack for chat, Highfive for video calls and screen sharing, Pivotal Tracker, and Google Drive.\n\nWe like to use open source software whenever possible, and we also like to contribute back to the open source ecosystem. We embrace open sourcing both libraries and tools developed in-house as long as those are not mission-critical code.\n\nWhat’s In It For You\n\n\n* Working for a stable and growing company that offers the environment and personal growth potential of a start-up.\n\n* The chance to work with a smart, passionate team of people.\n\n* Competitive salary, bonus, and stock option plan.\n\n* Comprehensive benefits package and health/wellness credit program.\n\n\n\n\nRequirements\n\n\n* Deep understanding of Ruby internals and ecosystem\n\n* Experience with C programming on multiple operating systems (Windows/UNIX/OSX) and the Ruby build system\n\n* Excellent written and spoken skills, both technical and non-technical. You’ll need to work closely with your developer teammates, as well as be able to have coherent conversations with people from QA, sales, marketing, and other parts of the company.\n\n* A willingness to engage in the process of defining our work through conversations with product management, other engineering teams, and the rest of the company.\n\n\n\n\nAssets\n\nIf you have experience with any of the following please make sure to highlight it in your cover letter:\n\n\n* You are a maintainer, contributor to the core Ruby code base or have a popular Ruby based Open Source project. We make special accommodations to help you maintain those activities.\n\n* Experience working on a build system.\n\n* Experience building the core Ruby language runtime from source code\n\n* Agile processes, including breaking large projects up into smaller stories, estimation, working in branches (GitHub Flow), code review, and CI.\n\n* C or C++ code and debugging compiler issues across platforms.\n\n* Perl, Python, Tcl, or Ruby, especially an understanding of their respective language communities and their toolchains.\n\n* Big iron operating systems including Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX.\n\n* Build tools such as make, autotools, bazel, etc.\n\n\n\n\nWorking At ActiveState\n\nActiveState has a collaborative, respectful, and professional culture. We’re all about working together to find the best solutions, and making sure that the experience of doing so is positive for everyone involved. There is a commitment from the CEO on down to making work at ActiveState a great experience for all.\n\nOur company is a team of 40+ and growing, with 2/3rds of the positions in technical roles. We maintain a set of core, overlapping hours, but we’re flexible with specific start and end times and are understanding about appointments and life events.\n\nOur vision is to have an ActiveState solution on every device on every planet, so we certainly don’t lack for ambition! But even though we’re ambitious we don’t expect work to become your life. We know you will do your best work in a positive environment free from death marches.
