Software Developer, Rails snapsheet
Snapsheet is a mobile enterprise startup that is disrupting the outdated auto insurance claims settlements process and turning a $120B market on it's head. We are venture backed by Lightbank, 500 Startups, OCA Ventures and New World Ventures.
We work in an industry that is widely outdated and underserved when it comes to technology. We're building that missing technology and pumped about it. So don't go chasing waterfalls, come work with an exciting team building the next gen technology for the insurance industry. We are building a team, apply today, tell your talented friends,and help to start something big!
Who we are:
We are more than just an app, we are a platform for getting your car repaired quickly. Our technology has helped drastically reduce the time it takes insurance companies to settle claims. We have API driven iPhone and Android apps, along with consumer and partner facing websites. We select the technology based on what makes sense for the app (we have apps in ruby/rails, python, backbonejs, etc). We consistently practice Agile methodologies and Test Driven Development, which results in high-quality, reliable and more maintainable code. We encourage developers to hack on other technologies and products outside of the day-to-day features, which in turn makes the team and product better.
Who you are:
You love solving problems, exploring new technologies and tend to ask why.
Highly motivated and passionate about your work; you take pride in what you do.
Quality and detailed oriented
Must be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment where ideas are turned into implementations in a matter of hours/days.
Experience with building and consuming REST based APIs
Experience with databases and writing SQL (NoSQL db experience a plus)
Experience in an Agile, TDD software development environment
Be able to work on a team, independently when necessary, to escalate problems when appropriate, and to thrive in a successful small business environment.
