Hiring Ruby Developer - Mid or Junior level

Ruby Developer - Full Time - Melbourne or Remote

Join a business that is changing the market for electricity in Australia.

GreenSync are transforming energy grids into marketplaces. By doing this their customers can avoid the significant costs and environmental impact of building additional infrastructure by leveraging energy resources that already exist.

GreenSync have lofty ambitions to be the connector of millions of smart, distributed energy resources, and, if successful will contribute to increasing the amount of renewable energy in the grid. We think that’s got to be a good thing for the planet and for society. This means that if you join the GreenSync team you’ll get to solve challenging and complex problems, and do good at the same time.

The Opportunity

We are looking for a Ruby engineer to join the team to take ownership of delivering features and improvements to the deX (decentralized energy exchange) platform, that add meaningful value to clients.

As an organisation GreenSync operate like a startup, even though they have been around for 10 years, and leverage the most suitable elements of Agile, Lean, Scrum and Basecamp. They are more interested in using the right solution for the problem, not subscribing to a methodology for the sake of it. Their engineers use the most suitable tools to solve a problem, not the latest shiny thing just because they can. They are always open to introducing new technologies if there is a clear return on investment - after all that’s what we believe good engineering to be.

They build their systems to be deployed onto cloud infrastructure, to do this they follow the twelve-factor app methodology, their infrastructure is built and maintained in terraform and pipelines automatically deploy through their environments.

What will you do?

You’ll get to build software in docker, run systems in Kubernetes and test the hell out of all of it.

You’ll definitely write a lot of code in Ruby, less in Golang and store information in PostgreSQL.

Full-stack engineers will most likely have around 2+ year’s experience with Ruby and will be keen to work across the whole stack. You’ll most likely love code but have an eye for good design and can turn your hand to front end work if needed.

Alternatively, you may come from a solid front end background but have an interest in working across the full stack.

We think you will be:

  • A professional with a good understanding of contemporary development processes.
  • Someone with a personal growth mindset, someone who seeks their own solutions rather than waiting to be told what to do.
  • Proud of your code, and happy to support your own products if need be.
  • A true collaborator who values the opinions and experiences of others.
  • Not afraid to ask for help.
  • Someone who believes that simple, understandable and sustainable will always win.

Our nice to haves are;

  • Experience in a remote working environment
  • Experience with platform/infrastructure development tools (e.g. GCP, Docker, Kubernetes).
  • Prior experience with front end technologies
  • Knowledge/Experience with ReactJS
  • Prior experience in a tech startup and/or a Product company

So, if working with a business that is leading the industry and with people that are focused on building high quality products that improve our world sounds good to you. You’ll be excited to have found a great team, a caring company and a progressive business.

If this sounds like an opportunity that you would like to pursue please contact Scott Comte at scott@wearecrew.io for more information on the role.
