Durham, NC


Full Time

We're looking for someone who can help us continue to build a more efficient and transparent public records process. Every day we work to create an application that is fast, intuitive, and a delight to use. We believe that writing clean, efficient, and well-tested code is critical to creating a great experience for our customers. If you are excited about building tools to make government information accessible and meaningful, this is the job for you.

Your day-to-day work will be focused on writing code, releasing features, collaborating with other team members, and making architecture decisions. You will be a key part of implementing product designs and ensuring that we deliver high-quality code. As we continue to grow you will have the opportunity to branch out into front-end, dev ops, and machine learning.

What you will do:

  • Design, build, and maintain efficient, reusable, and reliable Ruby and JavaScript code
  • Tracking down and fixing bugs
  • Design portions of the application architecture
  • Lead projects focused on major feature development
  • Own development of specific features from conception to implementation
  • Participate in peer code review
  • Ensure that code implements industry best practices
  • Communicate software needs across teams
  • Mentor Junior Engineers

You'd be a good fit if you have:

  • 3+ years of full stack experience
  • Experience building and releasing production web systems
  • Experience using test-driven development
  • Enjoy a highly collaborative environment
  • A conscientious, collaborative, and friendly approach
  • Great written and verbal communication

Extra points if you have:

  • Previous experience with or interest in mentoring colleagues
  • Deep git knowledge
  • Substantial experience with Ruby on Rails
  • Devops and/or AWS experience
  • Worked for or with local governments

What we offer you:

  • Mission-driven work that has a tangible positive impact
  • Three weeks of PTO plus federal holidays
  • Health care (medical, dental, and vision) benefits for you and your dependents
  • Equity in the company
  • A stipend and PTO to attend professional development events
  • Flexible work hours (upon mutual agreement) that allow you to schedule around personal commitments
  • Opportunities to socialize with your colleagues that don’t center on alcohol (weekly team lunches, monthly game night, a book club); if a company event is outside of normal work hours, we’ll cover childcare costs
  • A workplace that values communication, mutual respect, and work-life balance

We are committed to a workplace that reflects our community. We especially encourage applicants who are underrepresented in the tech industry, including women, people of color, and LGBTQIA candidates.
