ABOUT THE ROLE
Hired is built with Ruby on Rails, with various sets of custom and out-of-the-box tooling to support the business side of our operations. Our services are deployed to Heroku and AWS. Our development philosophy celebrates test-driven development, continuous integration and deployment, and agile processes such as sprint planning, iterative development, and retrospectives. This role will be based out of our San Francisco office.
As a Senior Software Engineer, you will work on various projects critical to Hired’s continued growth and success. Our engineers are versatile and self-motivated, can work in a self-directed manner or in a collaborative setting as needed, and display leadership qualities.

THE INTERNAL EXPERIENCE TEAM
The Internal Experience team focuses on creating the best possible experience for our internal teams that support our marketplace.

We are serious about the work we do but do not take ourselves too seriously.
