At ShipHawk, each developer is entrusted with autonomy and is provided transparency to all parts of the company. The more you put in, the more you get out of your experience here. We are a small agile team that's growing rapidly, 10 minutes away from Santa Barbara beaches. Pair programming and mobbing are the standard. We're tackling ambitious problems and there's no shortage of optimism and excitement here.

n addition to standard development skills, we're looking for you to have optimism, ambition, and a go-get-it attitude. You enjoy solving complex packaging and shipping problems and seek to make a tangible difference to the industry fast. For example: say you have a bunch of boxes of different sizes. You'll have to determine whether the boxes can fit on a pallet, and what the best way is to arrange them. If you say: no problem, give me multiple pallets and a weight and orientation constraint, then we want to talk to you!

You have: - 3+ Years of Ruby on Rails Development and 5+ years developing software in a commercial environment - Solid experience in building high-performance, reliable and scalable services - Experience with Ajax based user interfaces - Experience with our current technology stack is a bonus: Ruby on Rails, AngularJS, React, Git, Postgres - Shipping/transportation industry experience is a bonus

In addition we want the usual skill set: efficient, organized and follows through on commitments. You're autonomous, have great analytical skills and pay attention to detail. In addition, you're calm under pressure, have a great work ethic and communicate well.
