Contract Description

Company description

Fehr Labs is a software development house specialising in web apps, eCommerce sites and websites for a range of clients across the country. The company is still in its formative stages having been open now for over three years, steadily building an expanding portfolio with a focus on high quality work and cutting edge technologies. We also have several in-house projects that form a major part of the overall business plan and will ultimately become the company 's primary focus. The culture is one of creativity and learning. We do not believe in control and find people flourish most when given freedom. Above all else we want to be made up of a team of individuals striving to perfect their art and/or code, with their role being their passion, not their job!

Job description

We are looking for a Rails developer to become our first in-house Ruby expert, joining a young and hungry Bedfordshire-based company that are hellbent on becoming one of the UK 's leading development houses.

The ideal candidate will have 2+ years experience in a development environment with suitable experience coding Ruby on Rails. You will be working directly alongside the Director on a diverse range of projects from eCommerce platforms built on Solidus to web apps made with the latest technologies like Rails 6 and React.

A strong desire to learn and grow is absolutely essential as the business is small but expanding rapidly. You will be expected to write great Ruby code following principles like DRY, OOP and TDD, with a strong knowledge in implementing APIs, tests and multi-tenant applications as well as deploying to Heroku and handling AWS. You must also be comfortable working on a MacBook with experience in Scrum or Agile teams and in using Git.

The person must most importantly be driven and self-sufficient. This hire is the start of a big expansion throughout to 2021, with a huge amount of work to be done and dealt with. Should things continue to grow as they are, this person will be creating an opportunity for a long-term role at the company with the potential of becoming a partner with shares.

If you are someone looking for a huge exciting challenge with different work every day and a huge culture for learning, surrounded by a team of entrepreneurs that are obsessed with success: this is the role for you.
