Nowsta’s mission is to organize and empower the world’s part-time and part-time teams. At the moment, we are focused on shift & amp; concert-based work. For employers, organizing and retaining these workforces is challenging. For employees, disparate work schedules and unstable finances are all too common. We are building a platform that improves the lives of employers and employees alike.
Our team seeks people who share an interest in building a better and more humane work experience for companies and their employees. We value openness and kindness in our teamwork and we work hard to make a positive impact on our clients and workforce. We believe that innovation in our work begins with the values that we reflect in our team.
We use React and Ruby on Rails for our front-end and back-end code bases respectively. You must have a lot of experience with both frameworks.
We use PostgreSQL for data storage and Redis for caching and queuing. You must have experience with relational modeling and some query optimization.
We use Git & amp; GitHub for version control and code review and implementation of our applications using Heroku.
We write unit and integration tests with each commit. You are expected to write clean, maintainable, and tested code with performance and security in mind.
You should be comfortable with the design of the system, including the architecture, construction, testing, and deployment of entirely new systems.
You must be passionate about teaching and mentoring less experienced team members.
This job is for full-time, on-site, remote, or a combination of both. Candidates must be legally eligible to work in the US.
How we work
Engineers are encouraged to take ownership of their work and see it from initial development to launch. At the same time, all work is teamwork, and we collaborate regularly to overcome individual challenges. Code review and peer programming provide opportunities to learn and share constructive feedback.
Automation, autonomy and trust allow our launch process to move quickly. Our process emphasizes customer success and developer happiness. We believe this is the path to a sustainable engineering culture.
We offer health insurance that includes dental and vision plans. We are flexible in working hours and allow working from home when necessary. We have an unlimited vacation policy and we encourage teammates to take breaks and avoid too long working hours.
At Nowsta, you’ll gain application scaling expertise with a very rich business domain that impacts tens of thousands of people every day. You will work with a passionate team with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences.
When we are in our office, Nowsta HQ is adjacent to the Dumbo Boardwalk and Brooklyn Bridge Park. Metro lines F, A and C and the ferry are easily accessible from the office.
