Nov 18th 2018
Full-stack web developer with an emphasis on Front-end
Location: Remote or on site at one of our numerous locations.
The initial project you will be working on is a complete face lift of our current application. We have high fidelity mockups that need to be converted into working software. This position would be responsible for working with the Lead Front-end Developer and the existing team with ReactJS/Redux. This is a full-time position and we would love someone to be vested in the on going development of this and future projects.
About the current application:
Allegory is built primarily in Ruby-on Rails. It is a robust, document-heavy application using a PostgreSQL database. OCR is built into our document pipeline. For search, we use Elastic Search. Our main application is cloud-based, hosted on Amazon AWS, but in some cases, we have deployed and will deploy on-prem. We practice test-driven development, using RSpec and a continuous integration server. We also use agile development methods, using Git, Aha and Jira for our code and project management.
What you'll be working on:
- Building a new web interface with React/Redux
- Interfacing and building a RoR RESTful API
- Work with DevOps on deploying UI and backend deliverables
- Manage your own time and be responsible with minimal oversight.
- We are always adapting our process to improve and you will have say and be heard.
- You know plain old Ruby. What does include vs extend do?
- You have built production level application with RoR
- You have read and/or used React/Redux patterns
- You know CSS decently enough to create professional web apps
- Understanding of RDMS with an understanding of raw SQL statements, database constraints and indexing.
- You have a basic understanding of what Docker and Vagrant are. We use them in our development workflow
- You have interfaced with ElasticSearch or would like to learn
- You have knowledge of unit, integration and acceptance testing; what a mock and stub are
- You know how test front end components with tools like Jest and/or Enzyme
- You can use Git (branching, merging, pull requests)
- You are not afraid to express your opinion in a professional manner
Current front-end stack:
jQuery, numerous jQuery plugins, Angular 1, ReactJS, styled-components, Jest, Enzyme, Webpack and Babel thru RoR
As we said before we are looking for you to help us move from the current stack to a full SPA using React/Redux and styled-components with ES6.
