About the job

About the job

We are Europe’s largest airlines’ innovation unit and work on a variety of innovative projects from new ways of booking flights to the future of climate-neutral flying.

As a senior developer, you are someone who can see projects through from beginning to end, coach others, and self-manage. We’re looking for an eager person who can bring our team to the next level with their technical knowledge, people skills, and real-world experience. 

On the technical side, extensive experience building high-traffic websites using Ruby and Ruby on Rails is a hard requirement. Experience with DevOps (AWS services, Terraform) is a plus but not required.

The Stack
  • Ruby on Rails backend & we're experimenting with Sorbet
  • Open API Specs for contract testing
  • Postgres
  • Terraform
  • Bonus: Amazon Web Services (RDS, ECS, Lambda, Cloudwatch)
  • Bonus: TypeScript, React/Vue
How we work
  • Our biweekly sprint planning call is our only regular meeting
  • For complex features, write a design doc before coding
  • All code goes through code review, reviews are split out evenly across the team
  • A dedicated "runner" fields ad-hoc requests and bug reports each week, so that everyone else can focus
  • We use Tuple for pair programming
