We’re not picky about academic background and don’t require that you have advanced proficiency in Ruby on Rails. We hope that you can convince us that you have skills by showing us things you have built and contributed to. You should be a fast learner with an ability to self-ignite and work closely with other talents. We are generally very data-driven when we solve problems, so a natural analytical mindset is a big advantage. We appreciate to see that you care about what you build and work with yourself to become even better. How to Apply In your application, please include a few paragraphs where you tell us a bit about yourself and what interests you about the position. Besides that we’re super curious to see what you’ve done before: code examples of work, interfaces you’ve built and perhaps responsibilities you have had in other projects. The more specific the better. If we sense there is a good match we’ll invite you to talk and visit our office. We handle all interactions discretely and will make sure that your interest in growing is not going to create conflict elsewhere.
