Full-Stack Ruby Developer
at Baymard Institute

Are you prepared to take charge of maturing and expanding an entire web platform? We're looking for an excellent Ruby developer to build out Baymard's custom-built Ruby( on Rails)-based web platform.**The Job**In this position, you will have a lot of influence on the technical direction of the company since all Baymard employees are e-commerce UX researchers except one (Jamie, co-founder of the business, and the person you’ll be working most closely together with). It’s an opportunity to help envision and build the technical platform of a research company that, while it works with tech, isn't yet another app or web service. (Because of this we’re also more than happy to open-source our internal code and scripts because we don't make our money from code.)**Requirements**- We're looking for someone with strong programming skills since we want you to take charge / ownership of our tech platform.- Since all of our current infrastructure is written in Ruby, it's a major plus if that's your choice of language too.- Familiarity with JavaScript and CSS are a bonus, but not required._Note: you must be fluent in English, comfortable working remotely via digital platforms and willing to do a few yearly travels for team meetups (expect 2-4 weeks of travel each year)._**Are We A Good Fit?**If you’re looking for a chance to work on long-term goals rather than chasing monthly user growth targets, this will be a good match. We’re a business that has been profitable from day one and we really don’t care about temporarily spiking our user metrics in order to flip the company or impress VC investors. We’re much more interested in steady and sustainable improvements to our business – continually increasing the value we deliver to our customers (from which sustained increases in profitability organically follow). Since all of Baymard’s research is delivered through its website, your work will have an immediate and tangible impact on the company.We want to work with the smartest and most dedicated people around the world, and all of our positions are therefore open to full-time remote work. In other words, you are welcome to work with us from any location you prefer (which many of our employees do). If you want to, you’re of course also welcome to work in our Copenhagen-based office.**About Baymard**Baymard Institute is a small independent web usability research organization, specialized in conducting large-scale generic usability studies of e-commerce sites. These studies are published as industry reports and benchmark databases at baymard.com (this site is a big part of the web platform you’ll be working on) – which is being used by thousands of web professionals, all the way from the independent freelance web designer to the UX Director of a Fortune 500 company.You'll be working with a team of dedicated usability researchers conducting cutting-edge e-commerce research used by UX teams at some of the biggest brands in the world (clients include Nike, Lenovo, Etsy, etc.)?**Apply**If you’re interested in this position, please send the following to jamie+job@baymard.com (listed in order of importance):- Samples of back-end code you’ve written.- Samples of front-end code you’ve written (optional).- Other information you find relevant (hobbies, interests, work experience, CV, ..)._Note: All applications and materials are kept strictly confidential.
