Senion Ruby on Rails Engineer

Africa and Europe
As a Ruby on Rails Engineer you contribute to our core product, which allows local governments to engage their citizens through a wide range of digital participation methods. Youโ€™re part of a small cross-functional squad. While contributing to our Ruby back-end and sporadically helping out with our React front-end, you help your colleagues bridge knowledge gaps.

At CitizenLab, we work in small teams - we call them squads - where members collectively take ownership of the outcome of the features they build. We work in short iterations, test rigorously and release continuously. Weโ€™re strong believers in user testing and understanding live product usage. The majority of our product is source-available on GitHub.
Your responsibilities:
  • You actively contribute to the specifications and designs to deliver on your squadโ€™s objectives, uncovering technical constraints and breaking down the work in iterations and tasks
  • You take ownership over your tasks and implement them in close contact with your colleagues
  • You take into account all aspects, from data models, to testing, to performance, delivering well-engineered scalable solutions
  • You bridge the back-end/front-end knowledge gaps for your colleagues, seeing the full picture
  • You deliver your work in small iterations, often soliciting feedback from colleagues, spontaneously and through code reviews
