Ruby on Rails Developer (Melbourne or remote within Australia)

In 2011, BugHerd burst on to the scene as an up and coming Australian startup. 8 years later, the gloss has worn off a little (and we haven’t quite made the unicorn club), but what is left is a resilient SaaS product that is in the process of completing a remarkable turnaround.

Today BugHerd is profitable and growing strongly with a loyal group of customers and a team of people committed to making it great.
