Senior Full Stack Engineer

Man Crates, Remote


Duration: Full-Time

The Role:

Man Crates is looking for a senior full stack Rails engineer to support our website, marketplace integrations, and fulfillment systems. Our team is small on purpose and unique in that it is composed exclusively of senior engineers -- with most having well over seven years of continuous experience in Ruby-on-Rails. Every team member is required to be highly proficient with the full stack, ranging from dev-ops and databases all the way to  client-side browser profiling and everything in between. Given the proficiency requirements, you can expect to work on a very wide gamut of systems and projects with your teammates including database performance optimization, new customer features, algorithmic optimization of logistics, and much more.

Many engineering departments have polyglot service oriented architectures deployed across a wide range of hosting needing teams of specialists to keep it all going. We do things differently. Our team keeps things simple on a single Rails 6 modular monolith hosted on Heroku and picks proven tools for the job. We use the extra time to focus on software craftsmanship that far exceeds what is strictly “necessary to ship” something and gain excellent work-life balance as our systems are well-written, well-tested and designed to be reliable. Our engineers are low ego, social, and have found their passion in software development, not management, by working with like-minded individuals on projects that really matter to our customers or the business at large.
