The Role of the Senior Ruby Developer at ViaEurope:
We're looking for a Senior Ruby Developer to come and join our international IT team. Our engineers and product managers are always looking for ways to automate and optimize our parcel processing pipeline. Together with them, you will take responsibility for the complete delivery of a feature, from inception to deployment. We’re about delivering value to our users, not about closing tickets. Your insights and initiatives will be valued at every step.
About the day-to-day work:
We work hybrid and we are flexible about our location. We work in English and we believe that concise and effective written and verbal communication affects the quality of our work and defines a successful team. Also, one of ViaEurope's core values is to develop ourselves. Your education or background is less important to us than your ability to take on a task and get it from concept to production. ViaEurope boasts an education budget for conferences and online learning materials, so don't question yourself too much, we got your back!
We practice Trunk-Based Development with lots of tests, supported by fully automated CI/CD.
