Backend Software Developer

Department: Development   Location: Vancouver, BC

Managing people is core to every business, but the companies that have dominated the people-management software market for decades have produced software that is clumsy and unloved. Rise provides an experience that is unique in our market by focusing on modern, intuitive software and a superlative client experience. We’re taking away big clients from the market giants everyday and growing fast.

We are seeking a backend developer with at least two years of experience to work on the RESTful API services that power our front-end applications. The developer should be strongly familiar with Rails or a similar framework.

As an engineering organization, we will always choose getting things done right over getting them done fast. We strongly believe that research and experimentation is fundamental to producing high-quality software. We are not satisfied with the status quo and are not afraid to challenge conventional wisdom when we doubt its value. We are looking for people who believe these values are strongly consistent with their own.

Things we use and like:

  • Rails
  • PostgreSQL
  • Microservices
  • Docker
  • AWS (Elastic Beanstalk, EC2, ECS, SNS, SQS, etc.)
  • jsonapi.org
  • Agile development practices
  • SOLID, GRASP, design patterns

Why you would like working here:

  • Highly autonomous environment
  • Speed does not preempt quality
  • Freedom to experiment and learn
  • Great Coal Harbour office with an unbeatable view and a ping-pong table
