Ruby Engineer

Who we are

 

Paack is one of the hottest technology start-ups in the logistics sector. It was founded in 2015 by three Spanish friends and, since then, the company is experienced strong global growth and presently operates in 70 cities across four countries. All of our success is backed by a number of renowned European investors.  And this is just the start.

 

We believe that the future of eCommerce deliveries is customer-controlled time-slots, combined with a nature-positive approach to sustainability. We are on a mission to make this the new standard.

 

Our truly customer-centric and sustainable delivery services ensure customers receive parcels at their convenience, at a time that suits them. Our proprietary technology combined with our operational excellence enables us to deliver parcels more successfully and efficiently than ever before.

 

This creates unprecedented results for our retail clients through customer experience, eCommerce sales increases, loyalty, and retention, thus empowering them with powerful competitive advantages whilst at the same time reducing the impact of deliveries on the environment. The best retailers in the world, such as Amazon, Inditex Group (Zara), H&M, El Corte Ingles, and many more choose Paack as their exclusive partner for deliveries due to these reasons.

 

The engineering team does not have a complex management structure. The teams are organized by the products they are working on. Technical decisions are made as a team taking in the feedback and thought process of the developer. Team members are free to move between different teams based on the feedback of their team members and the status of their project.

Team members are free to move between different teams based on the feedback of their team members and the status of their project.

 

What will you do?

 

You will primarily be working on the main system of the Paack technology stack. This system is responsible for integrating delivery information from different retailers and delivery partners. You will be working with a team of smart engineers who will work on refactoring and automating the process of integration. Our goal for the integrations system is to become the zapier or IFFT for the delivery market.

 

How will your day be?

 

Our team is very diverse and we work from different locations across the globe in different time zones. We follow agile and extreme programming practices. We have a reading club in order to improve our knowledge and share our different points of view about specific things across the team and we are always looking for improvements.

 

Why should you work with us?

 

Paack is a fast-growing startup and we build our products to scale with the growth of the company. We create the place and opportunity for people to grow and build a successful career.

 

Development Practices?

 

We are strict believers in Testing and building software based on solid principles. We automate everything from development, deployment, and infrastructure. We also have an open communication channel with our users to understand their needs.

 

What we look for

We are looking for a software engineer that is a good team player, has good communication skills, and is comfortable working in a full-remote environment.

We are looking for someone with experience in software engineering, not programming. We value people that can think about trade-offs, understand testing is a must, and value cleanness and simplicity in their software designs.

We don’t care how many years of experience you have in Ruby or in any other Backend language, if you have some of the following skills then we should talk:

 

  • SOLID principles practitioner
  • Testing and TDD lover
  • Clean code fan
  • Infrastructure and UNIX systems understanding (ideally Cloud environments)
  • Proficient with git and GitHub, or similar workflows
  • DDD and Hexagonal Architecture knowledge

Of course, since this is about a Ruby position, we also value proven experience in Ruby. However, we value more the above points than Ruby experience.

What we offer

 

The basic stuff: A long-term contract with immediate incorporation, laptop allowance, remote work, and a competitive salary

 

The amazing stuff: Being part of one of the fastest-growing scaleups in Europe.

 

Also, work in a great new office in the city center within a young and very dynamic atmosphere ready to go much further as a team!
