Tropic Development/Engineering, Full-time

Job details

Innovators like Notion, Better Mortgage, Zapier, Intercom, and Nextdoor have saved millions on our platform. We just raised back-to-back Series A and B funding rounds for a total of $67.1M in (TechCrunch article here), and our revenue growth is something rarely seen.

About The Role

At Tropic, we are building a different kind of engineering team, one that is optimized for developer happiness and productivity. We’ve done this by challenging the status quo of how teams and applications are built.

From a technology perspective, we’ve embraced the conventions of Rails 7 and put the promise of Hotwire (Turbo/Stimulus) to the test. The results quickly spoke for themselves, and we’ve been able to build a modern, SPA-like experience all while using fundamentally simple full-stack web development principles.

From a team perspective, we’ve chosen our tools and practices to be as lightweight as possible in order to maximize quality collaboration and deep work.

What You’ll Work On

  • Use Rails 7 + Hotwire + Tailwind + ViewComponents to build features in a clean, near-greenfield application
  • Collaborate with Product Managers and Designers to craft elegant solutions
  • Help mentor and teach junior team members

Who You Are

  • 4+ Years of full-stack Ruby on Rails experience
  • A solid understanding of web standards (Modern Javascript/HTML/CSS)
  • A desire to learn and embrace Hotwire and the newest Rails features

Nice to Have

  • Experience working at a SaaS product company
  • Proven ability to thrive in a remote-first environment
