[JOB] Mid to Senior RoR Engineer, Alexandria, Sydney

Repost by Michael Bamford

GiVV Technologies is a highly innovative and creative payments and loyalty systems provider to top retailers, shopping centres, sport clubs and entertainment venues. We’ve been in business for eight years and growing rapidly in Australia and the U.S. We’re looking for a mid to senior software engineer to fill a new full-time position.

To enjoy this role:

You love to develop and deploy application code in a continuous integration environment to cloud infrastructure.
You want to own projects end-to-end, from requirements gathering, estimation, design, build, test, deployment and on-going support.
You are detailed oriented and process driven, and feel uncomfortable when procedures fail.
You welcome feeling empowered to develop and drive new ideas.
You are passionate to learn new technologies.
The skills and competencies we’d like you to have:

A Computer Science degree or equivalent industry experience.
Strong hands-on programming skills; Ruby on Rails is preferable.
An in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of a mainstream computing language.
Strong experience in systems handling a high volume of transactions.
Excellent communication skills and an entrepreneurial spirit.
The technical stack that we use:

AWS, Postgresql, Heroku, Redis, Sendgrid, Indue, Blackhawk, eMerchants
Ruby, Rails, RSpec, SASS, HAML, Bootstrap, Javascript
Node, ES6, React, Webpack, WebSockets (but we have much to learn)
Adobe Flash (yikes!)
Travis, Github, Jira, Confluence
The bottom line is, we would love to hear from you if you can code well and do so without a lot of supervision. Code well means using the least number of lines of code to produce the best outcome requested by the business, accompanied by tests that provide peace of mind to other developers that the code is straight-forward and changeable. You should have a good understanding of the fundamentals of computer engineering. Ideally, you know Ruby on Rails; alternatively, you’re an experienced engineer from another platform and passionate to learn.

If this sounds like your next step up in your career, send your expression of interest to michael at givvtechnologies dot com.
