Jr. Ruby On Rails Developer

About us

The way the world works is rapidly changing. This Gig Economy is the new business as usual and transforming the future of work globally. It’s estimated that by 2020, over 40% of the US workforce or 60 million people will be independent workers – freelancers, contractors and temporary employees.  

Until now, there hasn’t been an effective way to match C-level executives with companies that need on-demand help. We’re solving the problem with a groundbreaking new technology platform that matches executive talent with interim, temporary and board opportunities.  Our powerful algorithms do all the heavy lifting and provide accurate, immediate matches based on a wide variety of parameters that include experience, culture and work preferences.

If you want to be part of the evolution of the workplace, then Kahuso might just be the place for you!

What’s the opportunity?

You will be working on the full-stack development of our Hiring and Matching platform built using RoR. This is an opportunity for a junior developer to step into a role where you’re able to make an impact on an evolving product. You will report directly to the CTO and will work closely with the our team of developers to build out a smart but simple to use platform. Matching algorithms, notifications, and payments are just some of the features you'll be working on.

What’s in it for you?

Flexibility: Kahuso lives and breathes a flexible working environment.  As long as your work is completed efficiently, everyone’s happy. Whether you want to work from the office or spend an extended weekend working at the cottage, we can work with that.

Learning and Mentorship: You will be joining an accomplished team. Our co-founders both have recent exits under their belt so you’ll gain valuable experience from seasoned entrepreneurs.  Brian, our CTO, has hired and managed some very talented developers who have gone on to roles at Google, Amazon and LinkedIn. Since you will be working with him directly, you will have an experienced mentor to learn from.

Influence: Some of our best ideas come from brainstorming sessions at the local burger joint or taking a break and going on a bike ride. You will play a  role in brainstorming sessions to share your opinions and make things happen.

What will our Jr. Ruby On Rails Developer do?

Be a team player.  This is a role for someone who’s currently working with a development team and is ready to take the next step. As the company grows, you will have room to advance to a lead role within the company.  

Be a proficient coder. You'll be coding full-time and focusing on the overall quality of output.

Be an expert communicator.  We have a remote team currently spread across the GTA and parts of Brazil.  The majority of our work is done via Slack and email communication.  We don’t assign tasks and say “see you in 3 days” - we’re always talking, collaborating and working to meet our goals.

What are we looking for in our Jr. Ruby On Rails Developer?

  • The experience.  You have at least 1 year of experience building software. You have a Bachelor's Degree in Engineering, Computer Science or a similar field.
  • The startup mindset.  We need someone with experience working in an Agile environment in a small company or startup.
  • The technical expertise:
    • Experience working with Ruby on Rails
    • You have done some production level work in either React.js, AngularJS, or another Javascript framework
  • The passion.  You have a passion for writing extremely performant and efficient code.

Why should you join Kahuso?

There’s a lot of excitement surrounding Kahuso - from investors to industry leaders, we’ve got the attention of the market.  The product is proven, beautifully designed and has strong marketing capability to support the sales effort.  What’s next?

Hyper-growth and market domination! At Kahuso you will not only be joining a team that is revolutionizing how the world works, you will be at the forefront of the transformation.
