Software Engineer - Back-End Expert

Software Engineer - Back-End Expert

Vidyard is looking for an incredible talent to join our growing engineering team and play a critical role as we continue to build and improve our platform. You enjoy the challenge of optimizing SQL queries and you've experimented with NoSQL databases in the past.

You have a habit of writing tests for every functionality you write and you know how to manage a large web application on Amazon EC2 and Heroku. You can even tackle front-end work with HTML, CSS and JavaScript occasionally.

If you are a generalist, who feels at ease using Ruby on Rails, APIs and Ruby Gems in order to construct the backbone of a web application - we'd love to chat!

To be an effective team member, experience with the following technologies would be an asset:

  • Ruby on Rails or other MVC web frameworks
  • MySQL or other relational databases
  • Redis or other NoSQL databases
  • Automated testing with RSpec or similar
  • Interacting with and building APIs and Ruby Gems
  • Amazon EC2 and Heroku
  • HTML, CSS, JavaScript
  • Git & Github
  • Linux

Our engineering team is composed of generalists who strive to maintain both front and back-end expertise. Postings are categorized for either section; however, we strive to hire experts in both areas wherever possible.

To apply, you will:

  • Include your resume
  • Include links to your blog, twitter, etc. where we can learn more about your thoughts on technology
