Join a worldwide team!

While most of the team works in our New York and London offices, we are from all around the world. Our remote members are spread across cities ranging from Rio to Buffalo. We're building modern applications using Postgres, Ruby on Rails and Ember. One of our applications has undergone every upgrade of Rails since version 2.0 and is currently at 4.1.x. We've also started embracing microservices, allowing us to benefit from other technologies when they are a better fit for the job. We're always looking for better ways to build software. By now we take pull request reviews, automated tests, continuous integration and continuous delivery for granted, but there are many things we haven't figured out yet.

What projects you will be working on?
AlphaSights is a service business and our team builds software that supercharges our employees. The vision we have for our software is that it should make our users smile. The products we work on range from interactive UI, telephony, payments, search and much more. We have listed a couple of recent projects on our team site: We often develop prototypes that are tested on a small scale. If they are successful we invest the time to build a more polished product that is suitable for a worldwide release. Our team works very closely with the rest of AlphaSights to tune our products and incorporate feedback.

Skills & Requirements

What we're looking for in a Ruby on Rails developer
We're looking for developers to lead new product efforts, but to also join and contribute on existing projects. You should have either prior direct experience with Ruby on Rails or significant experience from similar frameworks, such as Django or Play. You should have a good understanding of Postgres and understand SQL beyond what you get from an ORM. You should be comfortable building both traditional web applications and applications that serve as an API for other applications or rich client side applications. You should be experienced with test driven development. The best remote candidates will have previous remote experience. We've found that it helps to have sufficient time zone overlap.Ideally you're located in a timezone that isn't more than a couple of time zones away from New York or London.

About AlphaSights

Expect immediate impact and work that matters
You can expect to deploy to production from day one and take on a lot of responsibility quickly. Our business is built on a foundation of software, so it's your technical decisions that will influence both the bottom line and future of this firm. We are hackers at heart and dedicate 10% of our time to tinker, upgrade and build exciting pet projects.

Anyone who's worked here recognizes that our greatest asset is our people
We are an international company with a fantastic mix of entrepreneurship, technical know-how and leadership. And we are social. Whether it's going on a retreat to Ibiza or Norway, running a marathon in Nice or camel riding in Morocco, there is always something going on. Continuing education is a must. We have an annual conference budget, a monthly book club and weekly in-house developer talks. But if you fit well with the team, and have additional benefit requests, let's make it happen.

AlphaSights is a rapidly growing knowledge broker built on a strong, technical core. Co-founded by Stanford business grads in London, the company became operationally profitable in mid-2010. Between 2012 and 2013, our revenues grew 102% from $14.9million to $30.1million. We are a bootstrapped startup with very little outside investments.
