Rails Developer

Squaremouth, America’s fastest growing travel insurance comparison website, is seeking a Rails developer to join the company’s award-winning team in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The candidate will be responsible for developing on our several web applications for both customer-facing and back office systems.

What We're Looking For

Squaremouth is looking for an innovative and motivated developer who wants to gain a deep understanding of the company's architecture to move several new company initiatives forward.

This position requires work from the company’s downtown Fort Wayne office, so the candidate must be within commuting distance.

They will teach themselves, learn from others, and take ownership of their successes and challenges. The ideal candidate should have an intrinsic desire for personal growth and professional success.

Squaremouth’s applications are written using the Ruby on Rails web framework. Candidates will write Ruby and incorporate dynamic behavior with JavaScript as appropriate. As with any web application, they’ll need to build HTML/CSS and integrate with backend databases.

Every person spends time troubleshooting bugs, reviewing other people's code, supporting customer service while on-call, and deploying updates to production. This allows all of our developers the opportunity to understand our entire system from beginning to end.

The Squaremouth team promotes a collaborative environment using industry best practices such as daily standup meetings, code reviews, and pair programming. Peer critiques and constructive criticism allows the development team to grow and learn at a fast pace.

  • Experience in web application development (Ruby on Rails experience not required)
  • Passion for growing your skills, tackling interesting work, and challenging problems
  • Energetic, positive attitude
  • Ability to work within a team, collaborate on projects, and share responsibility

Desired Skills

  • Experience building web applications using Ruby
  • Comfortable administering Linux based servers
  • Knowledgeable about Docker images and containers
