Job Description

First is fundamentally changing the real estate industry.  We believe that operational excellence will be key to our success and will be driven by constant improvement as well as bold game changing innovations.   

As one of our back-end engineers, you’ll help guide key design, architecture, and technology decisions. You will be a part of our platform team, helping us to build a platform to support our customer-facing and internal applications. You will help us to scale the system to meet the needs of our expanding userbase. This includes helping drive the product roadmap, bringing “design thinking” on product features, coordinating development efforts across the team, and working with the front-end team to ensure that our efforts are aligned. 

What you bring to the table 

  • 5 years of developing Rails applications in production 
  • SQL and relational database experience (not just using a database through an ORM) 
  • Experience in building APIs (REST at least, GraphQL a plus) 
  • Passion for startups and building products that will be used to change the face of real estate 
  • Familiarity with software architecture principles 
  • A generalist mindset, excited to jump into many parts of the stack to ship working software 
  • Ability to develop features in Rails without hand-holding, diving down into the database level as needed 
  • Clear, effective communication skills, both written and verbal 
  • Mastery of agile practices, including TDD/BDD, iterative design, continuous delivery, and more 
  • Comfort with asynchronous development: pull requests, chat, email, etc. 

Extra bonus points for 

  • Sidekiq (or another background job system integrated with Rails) 
  • GraphQL experience 
  • DevOps skills (AWS and Terraform a plus) 
  • Front-end experience (especially React) 
  • Mobile development experience 
  • Experience with pair programming (remote or in-person) 
  • Open source contributions, side projects and gems (edited)
