Our Values

If this sounds like you, you’ll fit right in.

The job

Justworks is seeking an experienced engineer to join our Core Web Engineering team, responsible for improving and maintaining how we use frameworks and tools (Rails, React, our design system Milo, etc.) that power the web experience for our customers, and defining the strategy for how we use these across the organization. The Core Web team enables the product-focused engineers to focus more on product and domain challenges, and less on the details of scale, security, performance, and availability.

We work primarily in Ruby on Rails and JavaScript, but prior knowledge is not a requirement, and you should have a deep understanding that goes beyond the ability to use these tools.

What you'll do

  • Design and develop the frameworks our engineers build with, and work across teams to improve, scale, and better utilize them
  • Work with the Engineers and Engineering Managers to scope, prioritize and execute projects so we can improve our systems and better develop new features.
  • Communicate and coordinate with other teams in and out of engineering to understand the requirements and opportunities for improvement.
  • Help define and communicate technical standards and best practices
  • Provide guidance and support growth in other engineers on the team and across other teams
  • Enhance our testing, monitoring and continuous deployment infrastructure

Qualifications 

  • Minimum of 3 years of professional hands-on experience
  • Strong object-oriented design and coding skills
  • Experience working with complicated systems at scale
  • Solid understanding of data structures and algorithms

Technologies We Use

  • Ruby on Rails, Javascript/React, Redux, MySQL, AWS, Git
  • ElasticSearch, Docker, InfluxDB, Redshift, Jenkins, Nagios
