Hero Health

Senior Rails Developer

Hero Health published 3 months ago




Headquarters: Oxford

What’s the job? We need someone who is a Ruby on Rails guru. You’ll spend half your time working on feature development, and half your time mentoring/coaching our more junior developers. It would be expected that your skills will span our full stack (Ruby on Rails, HTML, CSS, Javascript) and you should fully embrace and role model BDD and TDD. You’ll report to the Lead Developer, but will have significant autonomy and can help shape our ways of working.

The position is for a permanent role, minimum of 3-days a week, working in our offices in Oxford or remotely (although we ask that you aim to be in our offices 2 Fridays a month, so you should be UK based).

Why will it be great? You will play a key role in the progression of our junior developers, so if you get a kick out of seeing developers grow under your tuition then this will be a great job for you. We push new features live on a daily basis, and are co-located with a number of clients, so we get user feedback in real-time – essentially expect your work to have an immediate and visible impact.
Who will fit well? If coaching/mentoring is not in your DNA, then this probably won’t work well. We need someone who can empower our team, and help our more inexperienced developers grow and over-time ultimately transition to leading their own dev teams. We are also looking for someone who knows Rails like the back of their hand. You should be able to translate business needs into code in a dynamic fashion, and should thrive on development challenges. An interest in consumer facing tech or healthcare is a bonus.

Remuneration and Perks: £40-55K p.a. (pro-rated if part-time, dependent on experience) + potential for stock options. 25 days annual leave. Training allowance. Tech allowance. A GREAT TEAM FILLED WITH LOVELY PEOPLE.
