Our company is a consulting and digital product engineering agency with headquarters in Ulm, Germany.
All our services are build around integrated remote-teams. For one of our clients (innovative Fintech located in Germany) we are setting up a new team and that is the reason why I am reaching out to you.

Our teams consist of about 4-5 experienced engineers and about 2 quality assurance experts. In this team, you will be working on a greenfield Ruby on Rails application that involves fairly complicated backend integration work, but also a feature-rich frontend. We'll use Vue.js in a progressive approach to get the most out of good old server-side rendering and fancy browser-side apps. We may also consider Hotwire - that depends on your advice as well.

Our offer is:

  • Flexibility and Trust
  • Remote work
  • Long term relationship in the starfish network
  • Team management and coaching support all time

We are 100% remote and you can basically work from everywhere you feel most productive and happy.  The customer is located in Europe so a substantial coverage of Europe's business hours (3+/- hours) will be very helpful to gain traction.

You have:

  • At least 5 years’ experience in developing Ruby on Rails
  • At least 2 years experience in Vue.js and greater JS
  • Experiences in modern cloud-native applications
  • No fear to fight also K8S
  • Proficiency in English and maybe know some German as well
  • Hands-on mentality – you are enjoying development, refactoring, debugging, testing, and exploration
  • A high quality awareness and you are very accurate and structured
  • High degree of self-motivation

Our hiring process:
