Polyglot Uber-Skilled Agile Developer - Ruby/Rails, Clojure, Hadoop/HBase, AWS

at Runa Inc. in Mountain View, CA   —   Jul 03, 2014   |  
Overview
Runa.com is looking for great developers to join our small agile team. We’re an early stage, pre-series-A startup (presently funded with strategic investments from two large corporations).
Runa offers a SaaS to on-line merchant that allows them to offer dynamic product and consumer specific promotions embedded in their website. This will be a very large positive disruption to the online retailing world.

Tech at Runa:
Most of our front-end stuff (like the merchant-dashboard, reports, campaign management) is built with Ruby on Rails. Our merchant integration requires browser-side Javascript magic. All our analytics (batch-processing) and real-time pricing services are written in Clojure. We use RabbitMQ for all our messaging needs. We store data in HBase. We’re deployed on Amazon’s EC2.

Culture at Runa:
We’re a small team, very passionate about what we do. We’re focused on delivering a ground-breaking, disruptive service that will allow merchants to really change the way they sell online. We work start-up hours, but we’re flexible and laid-back about it. We know that a healthy personal life is important for a good professional life. We work with each other to support it.
We use an agile process with a lot of influences from the Lean and Kanban world. We use Mingle to run our development process. Everything, OK mostly everything :) is covered by automated tests, so we can change things as needed.
We’re all Apple in the office – developers get a MacPro with a nice 30” screen, and a nice 17” MacBook Pro. We deploy on Ubuntu servers. Aeron chairs are cliché, yes; but, very comfy.
The environment is chilled out… you can wear shorts and sandals to work… Very flat organization, very non-bureaucratic… nice open spaces (no cubes!). Lunch is brought in on most days! Beer and snacks are always in the fridge.
We’re walking distance to the San Antonio Caltrain station (biking distance from the Mountain View Caltrain/VTA lightrail station).

The Type of Developer We are Looking For:
We are looking for people with the right spark of intelligence, personality, practical polyglot development experience as well as a get-it-done attitude. (and can communicate well with other humans in English).
