How to find the right full-stack ruby developer?

What would motivate you to work in a startup project?

Below we have posted what we think explains our company and offer most accurately. But just as we approach our business we’re looking for feedback to shape the right offer and attract the right person.

We would appreciate all inputs and comments on the general content. Please do let us know if the used industry terms are not stated correctly, as we are not developers :slight_smile:

Thank you so much for all your help. Ruby on - Ruby strong!


About the company

We’re a company based in Melbourne launching an online marketplace selling manufacturers products that we deliver directly to Australian consumers in 2020 (D2C/distribution/tech play). We have located a market gap in a highly competitive market currently unfulfilled.

Our team consists of highly motivated individuals from finance (venture capital, investments, capital raising, modeling, etc.), business management (value proposition, business model, product-market fit, etc.), sales, branding, and marketing (social media, content creation, etc.).

About the position

We’re seeking a talented full-stack ruby developer with Shopify knowledge and/or experience who can assist us in creating an amazing experience for our consumers.

We’re aiming to combine existing integrations (API’s for 3rd parties) and apps already developed by the Shopify community and have coding/customizations made when, and if, needed.

We have completed an alpha test with significant success and now it’s time to shape the platform by lessons learned / customer discovery for beta testing through to the official launch.

We’re looking for an individual who can think laterally, who can advise on best practice UX, who can contribute with creative ideas, who is a self-starter thriving in ideation/execution and lastly, match our dedicated hardworking team.

We offer equity based on performance, engagement and milestone completion and pay a salary once the business is proven financially viable. We understand that we are asking someone to grab an opportunity and invest time (potentially on top of a full-time job) but you will not be alone as every member of the co-founding team operates on the same premises.

We’re excited to find someone who wants to succeed with us in this project (and many more) who share our core beliefs;

  • We value people over money,
  • We give parts of company profits to charity
  • We focus on solutions - not problems, and;
  • We want to have fun building profitable companies.

We are launching several verticals/product categories in our business over the next 6-18 months with this marketplace to serve as a foundation for them all. If this appeals to you we would like to have a face-to-face in Melbourne - coffee or tea is on us!
