Sr. Ruby/Rails developer who wants to change lives

Novu LLC  St. Louis Park, MN

Posted: August 4, 2013 | Job Type: Full Time

Novu who? We're a young, growing company on a mission to help people live a healthy lifestyle. Our team is a small, highly collaborative group working together to build an awesome web-based platform that changes lives, and our growing list of major accounts reveals that we are making a big impact in the market.

We've got a tight, highly-focused development team that collaborates to get the job done. Our team is empowered to make decisions and work directly with the rest of the business. We believe in hiring a few top-notch folks and then getting out of their way and let them do what they do best.

We use an Agile process and only do what makes sense. We use continuous integration and have automated (chef) and push button deployment to test/production environments. We deploy in the cloud.  We use git for source control. We fix all known bugs before we build new features.


  Competitive compensation and benefits (awesome health insurance)

  A relaxed atmosphere (shorts and sandals are OK with us)
  We work on high-end retina-display MacBook Pros
  We have money for training (like RailsConf)
  We have a ping-pong table, pop-a-shot and nerf guns
  We keep meetings to the bare minimum

Who we're looking for:

  We're looking for a smart, top-notch developer who can get things done. You should have experience working in a modern web framework (rails, django, etc) on a real production application. We are looking for someone who can hit the ground running using ruby and rails, so you should know rails. You should have experience writing tests (unit, functional, etc). Relational database proficiency is required (we're currently on MySQL).

  You should have recent experience working with modern front-end technologies. We're heavily utilizing javascript (Backbone.js, jQuery, Bootstrap) and CSS for interactivity, and mobile friendly responsive design. Experience writing and maintaining javascript unit tests is a big plus (we're using Jasmine).

 We're looking for someone who's got a few years of experience under their belt and can immediately contribute to the team. We build tools to help people live a healthy lifestyle; so we'd love it if you were interested in living healthier too. At Novu we believe in the power of face-to-face collaboration, as such we*re looking for a permanent full-time employee to work with us in our St. Louis Park, MN office.

So, if you are one of the best and looking to join a team of the best, the come join our team and help us build a truly meaningful product, culture and company.

Principals only please.
