Back-end Engineer Opal
Opal Labs is a Portland-based startup looking to change the way the world does business. We?ve developed a cloud-hosted platform called Opal as a base for beautifully crafted ? and truly useful - social enterprise applications.
Each application we create is intended to solve a real business problem and improve the way people work. We believe that people can make the greatest impact when they have the right tools, which is what inspired us to build our platform.
This is a winning formula for all who work with Opal, and we just happen to be working with some of the most well known brands on the planet.
We are now expanding our team so we can continue to evolve our products to meet the growing needs of our customers. If you are passionate about being part of a team that is changing the way people work, we?d love to talk.
Evolving the Rails-based backend architecture and API
Profiling code to track down performance issues, writing test coverage, and auditing the codebase for security concerns
Ensuring our platform can scale to meet expected (and unexpected) demand, which may involve exploring different technologies
Using with Git/GitHub to manage our code, GitHub issues to manage our tickets, and Heroku/AWS to deploy our code and manage our infrastructure
Taking part in brainstorms to help set product direction and think up the next big thing
Reading about and playing around with technologies that we may adopt
Lending a helping hand wherever and whenever necessary
To handle these responsibilities, you?ll want to have these skills:
Advanced knowledge of Ruby/Rails and Postgres
Familiarity with AWS/EC2/Heroku (we plan to migrate to a custom EC2 infrastructure next year)
Great communication (even under pressure) and willingness to be open and collaborative
At Opal Labs, we don't separate the designers and engineers into two teams; instead, we have one product team. We believe the best products and ideas come from a seamless integration of design and technology, and that the respective skills should naturally influence each other. This means engineers have a voice from the beginning of a project's lifecycle and designers are able to shape a project up until it ships.
A full-time, salaried position
Healthcare coverage (health, dental, vision)
Early-stage stock options
Company-provided computer (laptop + display)
A tight-knit, very supportive team?we pride ourselves on our culture
A fun, open office with foosball, ping-pong, and great food options nearby
Our team is deeply invested in creating a culture that promotes a collective genius, passion for perfection, and humor that our customers will feel in every pixel. There are no individual egos at Opal Labs, only a team ego that strives to change the world. If you?d like to join us on this journey, we?d love to talk with you: please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a cover letter speaking to why you feel this role is a good fit for you, and also include code samples or a link to your GitHub profile.
