We're passionate about enabling people to travel and explore the world by alerting subscribers to incredible deals on international flights.

We've grown to over 1,000,000 members and are looking for a senior backend developer to join our fully remote team developers and take a leadership role in building our next set of products and features.

As a small team, we're looking for somebody with a strong bias for action and track record of taking projects and products from idea to shipped code.

What you'll work on:

- Collaborate with other team members to creatively solve problems, ranging from scalability and performance to user interface and experience.
- Design and develop REST APIs.
- Write reliable tests and review others' code constructively.
- Scale our app by at least one order of magnitude.
- Foster a culture of creativity and technical excellence in our engineering team.

Required skills & experience:

- A minimum of 5 years of backend development experience (bonus for high-growth consumer-facing startup)
- Strong and demonstrable track record of building applications from start to finish.
- Exceptional communication skills -- we're a fully remote team and rely heavily on Slack and video calls to stay in sync.
- Ability to work during Pacific, Central, Mountain or Eastern time zones.

Technical qualifications:

- Extensive experience developing in Ruby and Ruby on Rails.
- A solid understanding of performance and scalability of Ruby/Rails and web apps.
- Experience writing automated unit tests -- integrated and functional test experience is a plus.
- Strong relational database modeling skills. Can drop down into SQL queries generated by an ORM and troubleshoot.
- Javascript (ES6).
- Experience working with internationalized codebase.

Other things we look for:

- A get it done attitude.
- The ability to make a strong case for a point of view without getting married to it.
- Rigor in software engineering best practices, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operation.
