Senior Backend Software Engineer (Remote)

Seattle, Washington

Senior Backend Software Engineer (Remote) 

One of our favorite partners is migrating their Ruby on Rails-based platform, one of the world’s largest, most trusted information resources in their industry, to a new platform and architecture built on JavaScript, React, and Node.  We’re looking for senior-level, backend-focused software engineers to help increase velocity and performance of microservices and RESTful APIs. You’ll integrate closely with the existing team of engineers and have a nice balance between ownership and collaboration. It’s a well-run engineering organization with a genuinely nice group of engineers and product owners. 

You'll bring strong backend and microservices development skills in JavaScript, React, and Node, as well as some experience in Ruby on Rails. 


What you’ll be doing: 

  •  Migrating a mature and scaled platform written in Ruby on Rails to a next-gen platform written on JavaScript, React, and Node. 
  • Writing high-quality, clean, and maintainable code for backend services while providing consulting expertise and collaborating with engineering and product stakeholders. 
  • Communicating clearly, professionally, and consistently with your team and your client. 
  • Be a good person; we’re proud to work with every single Rooster Park engineer and you will be too! 

What you’ll bring to the table: 

  • 5+ years of professional software development in a scaled environment. 
  • 3+ years of experience with JavaScript, React, Node, TypeScript, or Python. 
  • 1+ year of experience with Ruby on Rails. 
  • Experience building microservices and RESTful APIs. 
  • Real-world experience building software in a complex and fast-moving environment; a mix of enterprise and startup experience is ideal. 
  • Strong collaboration and communication skills; you function well autonomously with drive and self-direction, but you’re also comfortable being part of a team and working in partnership with your engineering colleagues. 
  • You are reliable, responsible, consistent, nice, and passionate about what you do! 

We're Rooster Park, and we're a boutique consulting and recruiting agency obsessed with finding the right fits for a small set of partners. We pay competitively and have excellent healthcare and other benefits. This is a long term, remote consulting opportunity, based in Seattle, WA. Unfortunately, at this time we are not able to provide sponsorship for employment and request no agency submissions. Thank you!
