Ruby on Rails Specialist

Location: Remote, with an office in Cambridge.

Salary: £35K - £42K

Are you a Ruby on Rails developer or Full Stack dev with RoR experience looking to make a positive impact with your skills?

Before the nitty gritty, I want to say the organisation this role is with work as part of an alliance, so there are lots of skills and exp. that will be helpful for this role, but also there are teams in the alliance orgs to support with things like cloud knowledge, deployments, architecture and CICD.

But, if you have commercial Ruby on Rails experience and have worked on software projects or products through the full lifecycle, then with the right attitude you'll have a good chance of success.

We're working with a global conservation organisation who support governments, private business, academic institutions and scientists to put useful and detailed data insights into the hands of the people who can help protect natural environments.

You'll work with partner organisations to develop new features and understand what value new features could bring. You'll ensure it's running 24/7 and make platform improvements, fix bugs and work with a technical committee who oversee the management of various databases which feed into this tool to continually improve.

The data presented in this tool will allow business, governments and orgs to make decisions that limit negative impacts on our planet, or better yet they may even give policy wizards the means to protect critical areas of land or marine locations.

If you've worked with mapping technologies such as PostGIS (or any GIS), CartoDB, GeoDa, Leaflet or similar, that will really stand out - though you will be supported in learning them if you haven't!

Snapshot of beneficial skills:

* PostgreSQL / SQL / T-SQL

* Javascript / React / Vue JS

* Mapping technologies

* AWS or Azure

The users of these tools have varied technical infrastructure's, so you'll work with different cloud providers and support teams in implementing and integrating tools to their systems.

Some of the projects will be small and niche, others will be led externally and run for years, either way you'll have plenty to keep you busy.

You'll have support from multiple avenues but will also have a lot of autonomy when you're ready for it. Post-probation nobody will be telling you what to do, and you'll play a big part in shaping this tool and building a team around you over the next 12-24 months.

So, if you care deeply about our planet and all the beings lucky enough to reside here and want to make a positive impact, then you should 100% hit apply
