Job Description

This job ad goes out to all the visionaries who want to find a purpose in what they are doing and take accountability. With Blinkist we’ve created a meaningful product that is growing fast. Our blinks, key insight summaries of the world’s best nonfiction, help more than one million people around the globe to keep learning new, exciting things, each and every day. The app has been featured by the iTunes and Google Play Store numerous times. We are working with the latest tech and tools. We usually play with all hot technologies and see what’s out there but we are also thoughtful on what makes it to our technology stack. So are you". Everything that backs our apps is built in Ruby. Our foundations are solid, but we want to move to a more service oriented architecture. In order to do so and to improve our backend services landscape, we need you.

As one of our Ruby developers you will:

  • Create code that follows our motto “The more standards, the better”

  • Take responsibility in driving the Blinkist backend services from day one

  • Implement services to support feature requests for our apps –– keeping them on the highest Rails quality standard,rock solid, and resilient

  • Interact closely with our operations and other backend developers to generate simple and scalable solutions

  • Conduct code reviews and participate in regular meetings to ensure quality and alignment

To do this, we believe you should have:

  • 3+ years of Ruby Rails development experience

  • A clear understanding of distributed Systems

  • Familiarity with concepts of Microservices

  • Level 3 REST is what you love to achieve - even if none of your friends get what you mean

  • Passion for writing clean, elegant, and easily-testable code

  • You are SOLID

  • Experience with AWS and Docker would also be great

At our Berlin HQ we offer a fantastic workplace including all the benefits you’d expect – from a personalized perk system to free drinks, fresh fruit, and furious foosball fights, plus the nicest, smartest bunch of coworkers. Uniting us as a team, we foster a unique company culture championing self-empowerment, transparency, direct communication, personal development, and mutual support. We got rid of classical management hierarchies and instead distributed authority among all colleagues. So, we strongly believe in the advantages of self-organization and autonomous working: not only do we want you to grow into the role of Rails Developer, but we want this role to grow with you, too. Add a competitive salary, flexible working hours, and a meaningful product on the rise, and you have a first impression of why Blinkist is a great place to work.

If we’ve captured your interest, apply now and let us know why you are the perfect fit for the job!
