🚀 Want to join a team of A-players in an exciting, high-growth, entrepreneurial environment?
LeadSimple is a small team solving big problems in the property management industry. Bootstrapped since 2013, we’re passionate about helping small businesses grow sustainably.
Our software provides a powerful foundation for any property management company to take their business to the next level. Thousands of property managers rely on us for their day-to-day operations and we’re only getting started. 
We’re looking for seasoned Senior and Lead Ruby on Rails Engineers to join our fully-remote team to help us scale to meet market demand. This is an opportunity to join on the ground floor of a bootstrapped, growing company with a lot of upside.
What we’d want you to do:
  • Take technical ownership of our product’s architecture and capabilities
  • Recommend and lead complex refactoring projects and migrations, without sacrificing stability, such as:
  • Modernizing our back-end stack (we’re currently on Rails 4)
  • Optimizing our API and PostgreSQL database for scale and performance
  • Suggest and implement scalability & productivity improvements
  • Collaborate with the rest of the team in weekly meetings, chat and code reviews
  • Develop new full-stack features from start to finish using the Shape Up method
  • Participate in our Betting Table planning meetings
  • Write high-quality and maintainable Ruby and Typescript code
  • Write high-quality documentation on our product’s architecture to assist collaboration
Must have
  • 5+ years of experience with Ruby on Rails
  • Fluent spoken and written English at a professional level.
  • Working hours must overlap with PST for at least 3 hours.
  • Familiarity with PostgreSQL query optimization and scaling strategies
  • Past experience with complex upgrades and migrations
  • Prior experience as a software architect or technical lead
  • Strong analytical and debugging skills
  • Strong communication skills, able to recommend decisions using data and experience
Nice to have
  • Prior experience upgrading Ruby on Rails (this would be a big plus!)
  • React, Typescript or GraphQL experience
  • Elixir experience (we have 1 service using Elixir)

  • You’ll have opportunities to work on the entire stack, from databases to user interfaces and everything in between, in a wide variety of product areas.

  • You’ll collaborate within a small, highly productive team, reviewing code and helping other engineers with their roadblocks.
  • You’ll have time to focus. We don’t micromanage, and we do our best to keep distractions (and meetings) to a minimum. 
  • When assigned to on-call duty, you’ll investigate and fix bugs and respond to incidents. 
  • You’ll deploy early and often. We ship to production multiple times per day.

  • 6 US Holidays
