You will work side-to-side with 2 Engineers, Product Manager, and QA Engineer, and have a direct influence on a product that helps saving money for people that are looking for Home, Auto, and Life insurance.
We’re looking for a Lead Ruby Engineer to join our Platform Product. The platform is a smart system that can serve multiple Matic flows and business models using the same code including B2C, servicing, mortgage bridge, and other use cases.
Day to day duties:
— Lead the team of smart engineers, help them to build a great product, coach them to become better engineers and people
— Provide continuous feedback, keep in touch using 1:1 and conduct performance reviews for your team
— Take part in the full product development cycle (define problems, prioritize features, build long-lasting architecture, refactoring)
— Work hand to hand with other teams to deliver cohesive product line across the whole company
— Actively communicate with Matic offices at Columbus and LA to get a better understanding of product needs
— Write tones of code

— Work in flat structured, product-oriented culture team
— Your code actually matters. We want you to write it a lot
Must have skills:

— Experience and love for writing automated tests
— Ability to transform ideas into a working product of perfect quality
— Customer and a product-oriented mindset
— Upper-Intermediate+ English speaking skills. (haven’t we mentioned that we are US startup, so we are close to our headquarter office, good English helps us to work better together)

— Management or mentoring experience
— Passion for quality
Tools we use:
— Back end: Ruby 2.6+, Ruby on Rails 5+, Sidekiq, ActiveAdmin, Grape
