Software Developer

Company: BackerKit
Location: San Francisco
Posted on: April 10, 2021

Job Description:

BackerKit enables thousands of creators worldwide to focus on doing what they love. Our software is the premier platform for backer management, empowering project creators to manage their creative endeavors with confidence. We're hiring a software developer to join our five-person engineering team! BackerKit is remote-friendly until the end of 2021, after which we expect to have some regular in-person time in our San Francisco office. We're a fast-growing startup with a diverse, close-knit team that prizes creativity, enthusiasm, and a willingness to learn. As an engineering team, we work iteratively and we purposely avoid thinking too far into the future when deciding what to build. BackerKit has grown by listening to our customers and building what makes sense. The founders are a developer/designer duo who met while working on Diaspora, the first highly successful crowdfunded open source software project. Our commitment to helping creative people be creative starts with them and drives us every day.

  • You enjoy the feeling of accomplishment that comes with deploying code just as much as you appreciate a tough technical challenge.
  • One of your goals as a developer is to teach your skill set to others. You've spent a lot of time honing your skills, now it's time to give back to less experienced team members and get them performing up to their potential.
  • You love to pair, or are open to it. We pair close to 100% of the time. We use this time to teach, learn, and to get things done. You're comfortable with managing these sessions and ensuring everyone is getting the most out of them.
  • You're excited about Ruby on Rails! We believe (for now) in The Majestic Monolith and we value solving problems for our customers over trying out new technologies in production. What working at BackerKit will look like:
    • You'll pair program with all the members of the development team from 9am-5pm Pacific time, Monday through Friday. We spend our pairing time very focused on coding, so we make sure to take frequent breaks throughout the day and a full hour for lunch.
    • You will be working on strategic integration with other platforms and providers, as well as creating new tools and products that build on our existing successes.
    • You'll be developing products that help to unblock creators and make things possible for them, as well as integrating lessons learned from observing what creators are doing out on their own.
    • You'll be expected to work at a sustainable pace; no long hours or weekends here!--
    • You will provide product input. We are a small team that moves fast, so it is important that you speak your mind and give feedback on how we can make things better/faster/stronger.
    • You will help the team release early and often. We deploy at least once a day, frequently more often than that. Skills and experience we'd like you to possess:
      • You've spent a decent amount of time (2-4+ years) working on a Rails application.
      • You are great at communicating. You can easily verbalize problems and ideas with the team, are excited about leveling up the people around you, and enjoy sharing success with your coworkers.--
      • You are open to receiving feedback, and can give constructive criticism to others so they can improve.
      • You are willing to go outside of your comfort zone to try new things and good at failing quickly and learning from it
      • You are conscious of your current level of productivity and happiness, and make continual changes to grow.
      • You have a product engineering mindset: you are happy to ship the simplest thing that works, while nudging the technical direction over time as needs evolve and we learn more about how a feature is used.-- Benefits of working at BackerKit
        • Competitive salary and stock option plan
        • Stipends for supporting creators of your choosing
        • Medical, dental, vision, commuter, and 401k benefits (with employer match)
        • Family-friendly and focused on maintaining a healthy work/life balance
        • Awesome work environment at a company with a huge vision
        • Annual Learning and Development stipend to support your professional growth Location Requirements
          • We will be working remotely until at least the end of 2021, but then we expect that there will be some in-person requirement at our San Francisco office, specific details TBD.
          • We're currently only considering candidates who reside in the following US states: CA, CO, VA, FL, UT, RI We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We here at BackerKit will always respect pronouns and identities when addressing candidates who feel comfortable sharing theirs. BackerKit is committed to a culture of inclusion and belonging. We believe that crowdfunding is for everyone, and strive to build a company that reflects the diverse backgrounds of the creators we currently serve and hope to serve in the future.
