About this job
Hubstaff is a fast-growing startup in the time tracking and project management space that fully embraces remote work. You work when and where you want. We care a lot about our culture, having fun while working hard, and our annual retreats.
Here's a video from our last retreat that shows what it's like to work for Hubstaff. https://hubstaff.wistia.com/medias/9pyt01aemt
We are looking for a talented senior front-end engineer to join our passionate development team.
The correct person will take pride in their work, have extreme attention to detail, and be able to get their hands dirty implementing HTML/CSS/JS frontends. You will be expected to implement views using the Slim templating engine within Ruby on Rails. Implementing the designs from our marketing team will be the majority of the job role.
We are looking for a well-rounded front-end developer who also has the backend chops to make modifications to our custom Wordpress theme and implement server-side aspects of their projects using Ruby on Rails.
This position will report to our one of the Hubstaff server team leads and work closely with our other engineers. You’ll be able to work 100% remotely. We are looking for someone that can grow with our team for years to come.
This is a long-term (years, our hope is forever) full-time (40 hrs/wk) 1099 (hourly) contract role. Some of the benefits of working for us is our company-hosted annual retreat, work where you want (cafe, co-working location, your home, anywhere), don't have to ask for permission when you want to take time off, get to dedicate yourself to one project at a time, and have job security and a career path for years to come (we've run the company using positive cash flow from day one and are carefully growing the team and business).
You’ll be a good fit if you:
- Are self-disciplined and have a great work ethic
- Have good time management skills, including having a consistent schedule
- Communicate well
- Can work until at least 1pm EST M - F
- Like having a consistent daily work schedule
- Have at least three years of experience building high quality marketing sites
Front-end Development Requirements:
- Highly skilled with HTML / CSS
- Deep cross-browser experience
- Designing highly responsive pages
Backend Development Requirements:
- Ruby on Rails (enough to implement your front-end work)
- PHP (enough to mess around with our Wordpress install)
- Postgres or MySQL
- Unit tests (rspec, etc.)
- Background workers
- Working from design docs/specifications & wireframes
- Writing specification docs
- Branding & identity experience
- A/B testing
- Illustration skills
- Prototyping skills in Sketch, etc.
- Marketing skills
Life at Hubstaff
At Hubstaff we love doing things the "Right way" by talking to customers, writing specs, having copious amounts of unit testing, conducting peer code reviews, trying to break things during QA, and sleeping well at night. But we're always looking for ways to improve. People rarely work more than 40 hrs/wk and we spend 0% of our time fighting fires.
There's no babysitting. You're in charge of yourself. That means you work where and when you want.
Culture is really important to us. But building culture in a remote team can be difficult. We do a lot of things to try to remedy that. Chief among them are our annual retreats. We have had retreats in Chicago, Lisbon, and Cancun. We do hackathons, break out of escape rooms, hang out on the beach, and eat lots of good food.
There's always something challenging to work on and great people to spend your days with building things at Hubstaff.
