Ruby on Rails Engineer
Goldstar.com is looking for an experienced Rails developer to join our existing team and help grow our system of applications and services. This position is located in either Pasadena, CA or Portland, OR.
Goldstar is an industry leading primary ticket sales marketplace that is dedicated to making live entertainment more accessible. We work directly with thousands of theaters, comedians, musicians, magicians, food festivals and all kinds of live entertainment to connect folks that want to go out with interesting things they may not even know exist. Besides our apps and website, we power a number of other large “name brand” marketplaces. We are an established, profitable company that is still growing rapidly. And unlike many companies in the ticketing industry, we are laser-focused on improving the experience of the event goer.
We have a small backend team that works directly with the rest of our ~40 person product team and we’re looking to bring in someone to help create a world class experience for our millions of members. Our backend developers work on numerous Ruby on Rails based applications, from a large 10 year old "monorail" to small services. They work directly with each other and with designers, front end developers, mobile devs, and product to build sites, APIs and micro-services.
You will have significant influence on the architecture and technical decisions of the projects you work on. You’ll work collaboratively with the rest of the company to build a world class user experience. You’ll be helping millions of people go out more and experience their community and you’ll be helping out thousands of theaters, musicians, and comedians by building their audience.
We're looking for professional and experienced Rails developers that can ship code on a daily basis. We have no time or patience for "Rockstars" or brogrammers. We have offices in Pasadena, CA and Portland, OR. We're excited to help relocate the right people within the US, but we’re not really into telecommuters right now, although there are always exceptions. We're looking for people that know how to ship great applications. We provide top of market compensation and "big company" benefits like a 401k and great health insurance with the exciting atmosphere of a growth company.
Goldstar is committed to cultivating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity. Our mission is to help everyone love live entertainment as much as we do, and we can’t do that without a team as diverse (in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity and perspective) as our customers and the live entertainment industry as a whole.
We're looking for individuals experienced in working with the following things:
- Experience building web based experiences in dynamic languages
- Working knowledge of test driven development preferably with experience in rspec
- Experience building REST based web services
- Experience working in a service oriented architecture
- Desire to work with a team to deliver a world class user experience
- Dedication to delivering high quality code
- Top of market salaries based on experience
- PTO (120 hours per year for the first 3 years, 160 hours thereafter).
- Stock options in our fast growing company
- Complete 401k package that includes both traditional and roth 401k plans with a company match
- Generous medical, dental and vision benefits
- Employee ‘comp’ tickets to great events
- Flexible, professional work environment that is still fun and family friendly
