Jr. Ruby On Rails Developer

Who we are

In 2015 Kahuso launched a groundbreaking platform that matches executive talent with full-time, contract, board and advisory opportunities. Our powerful algorithms do all the heavy lifting and provide accurate, immediate matches based on a wide variety of parameters. Our platform saves time, money and effort while ensuring the best talent is selected for a company’s specific needs. In the world of fast-paced changes intelligently connecting candidates to opportunities is no exception. Kahuso uses cutting edge technology to give companies the leverage they need to reach out to executive talent as quickly as possible, giving our customers an advantage over their competition.

With our solution receiving positive feedback and growing demand after being live in market for a year, we are working on our next release. Join us for our next phase of growth.

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.
