Job Description

Ruby on Rails Developer
Location: Remote
Salary: £45K - £55K

Are you a Ruby on Rails developer or Full Stack dev with RoR experience looking to make a positive impact on our planet?

How would you like to take ownership of a tool that is used by companies and governments globally for measuring the benefits of nature and biodiversity, while also giving delegates and representatives the data needed to design policies that protect or enhance nature?

This Ruby on Rails role is with one of the worlds largest conservation organisations and while it’s already in use, there’s huge scope for improvements to the platform and new features to be built and implemented.

There are teams in the partner organisations to support with things like cloud knowledge, deployments, architecture and CICD, but the more varied your experience, the better.

You’ll collaborate with those partner organisations on new features and integrate their databases into the tool allowing for more accurate and detailed reporting to decision makers.

You’ll make platform improvements, influence design, fix bugs, test the software and have the support of a technical committee who will help you assess priorities for new features.

If you’ve worked with mapping technologies such as PostGIS (or any GIS), CartoDB, GeoDa, Leaflet or similar, that will really stand out - though you will be supported in learning them if you haven’t!

Snapshot of beneficial skills:

  • PostgreSQL / SQL / T-SQL
  • Any DevOps tools or skills used are beneficial.
  • Mapping technologies, GIS
  • AWS or Azure

The users of this tool have varied infrastructures, so you’ll work with different cloud providers and support teams in implementing and integrating the tool to their systems.

The plan is to build a small team around this individual which means increased salary and further opportunities to progress. The benefits are brilliant and include 12% pension and healthcare.

So, if you’re a Ruby on Rails dev and want to turn your hand to helping protect and repair our wonderful planet, you should hit me up! Or just hit apply, send a message, pick up the phone etc.
