Senior Rails Developer

Location: Silver Spring, MD

Department: Engineering

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

Pagemodo gives small and micro businesses the tools to compete with bigger companies in social marketing. Using Pagemodo, a local bakery can post beautiful product announcements, hold user contests, and track their followers just as easily as a big fast food chain with a pricey marketing agency.

About you

We are currently looking for our sixth engineer and there is a lot of room for you to choose your own adventure. 

Will you improve our uptime and performance numbers while helping us perfect our infrastructure for continuous delivery? 

Will you build intuitive user interfaces informed by usage metrics and in collaboration with our marketers and designers? 

Or are you a little less experienced, looking forward to building a consumer web app and learning from our experienced team before showing us what you can grow to become?

 We’re excited to meet you and find out how you can help us to grow our product, process and team.

About us

Pagemodo began as a startup and today is part of Webs, which provides a suite of tools for small business digital marketing. We operate as an integrated agile team with a product owner, marketer, designer and tester in addition to our five engineers. We already have a lot of paying customers, but there’s lots of room left to grow.

Our main application is built in Rails and Postgres and runs on Heroku. The application is increasingly front-end-centric, and we use SCSS and Backbone to keep things organized. Among our existing engineers, we have expertise in creating and growing new products, deploying to Heroku, using the Facebook API, and building highly-interactive UIs with JavaScript tools like Backbone and React.js. It would be good if you knew some of those things, better if you're excited to learn some of the others, and best if you have other areas of expertise that you can teach us.

Recent projects

Here is a sample of what we’re up to now:

We built an easy-to-use image editor to let customers create their own cover photos and Facebook image posts. Read our blog post about post designer to see some of our themes, user images, and some real user feedback in the comments:http://www.pagemodo.com/blog/exciting-features-pagemodo-post-designer We still have more features to add and some edge cases to make more intuitive.
We’re white-labeling some of our coolest features for a large company whose customers are going to get a lot of value out of social media. We have to refactor and carefully test existing code to make that happen. It isn’t the most exciting work, but it gets our product in front of more paying customers and helps us get feedback from audiences we can’t reach organically.
We’re redesigning our internal dashboard with the goal of taking our separate tools and making them a more cohesive single product centered around our users' goals. We need to learn more about our customers through metrics and testing. And we need to improve the front-end code quality with a living style guide and more JavaScript testing.

Let’s talk!
