Ruby on Rails Software Engineer

More photos have been taken this decade than in the rest of history! Rapid advances in mobile technology mean that over a trillion pictures are captured each year. Our client helps the photo industry stay ahead of the game.
They are looking for talented engineers to work with them to build solutions for some of the world's biggest brands, and millions of their customers. Over the last 12 years, they've grown a diverse client base that ranges from individual store owners, through high street chains to massive global corporations. Although they're based in the UK, their core clients are also located in Ireland and North America.

Why you should join our client

* They love developing technology, utilizing Open Source projects as the foundation for their systems.
* They have an open, honest and transparent culture.
* They empower people to make decisions with impact.
* They are open to change in their processes, techniques and skills.
* They have a smart, motivated and supportive team.
* They value learning, agility and feedback.

Their team finds creative and innovative ways to solve complex hardware and software problems for their clients. They keep development cycles fast, adapting as they go along, and investing in a culture of discovery and continual feedback.

Our client is looking for individuals committed to learning more of their trade and supporting each other's growth in the process. They still have a startup-like culture of openness to ideas and opportunities for talent to be put to good use... plus a market-tested and profitable product line. So they like to think they have the best of both worlds.

You will join around 80 other staff, based in comfortable, freshly renovated offices located in a conservation area in Hampshire. Trains to Chichester, Southampton, Brighton and London are a 5 minute walk away, and they are also a 15 minute walk to the sea. They've got all the usual suspects; breakout areas, a games room and free on-site employee parking. And plenty of the more unusual suspects; a sizable garden, fitness suite, a plethora of musical instruments, modern kitchens, a host of the latest gadgets, opportunities for sporting enthusiasts, copious nerf guns and much more. Plus a 1Gbps fibre connection... they take their technology very seriously!

To make a long story short, they've grown a place where they love working, and they think you will too.

What you'll be doing

* Working with highly skilled development and related teams to develop new and existing products for the photo industry using Rails, Ruby and other cutting-edge web technologies.
* Providing technical guidance to support client conversations - including the world's largest retailer - Walmart!
* Supporting their drive for product & technological excellence - delivering great code and helping them refine best of breed agile delivery processes.

You should apply if you are...

* Fluent in Ruby and its associated frameworks, ideally with commercial Rails experience.
* Passionate about cutting edge web technologies and love to learn (these are fundamental values of the company!)
* Experienced at building quality, robust products for technologies across the stack.
* Adept at creating reliable, well-tested systems, with excellent UI design.
* Passionate about code quality and supporting processes.

It's a bonus if you have...

* Experience of working within an Agile environment
