Javascript/React/Redux developer - REMOTE Full-time

Scout RFP transforms archaic sourcing processes with clean, intuitive software that helps buyers and suppliers do business more effectively and with fewer headaches.

Scout RFP is well-funded, managed by an experienced team, and growing fast. With over 200 customers and adding more each day, our software is simplifying the buying decision for medium and large enterprises.

What we are looking for

We are looking to add a Software Engineer to help us keep shipping features to customers who love our products.

Day-to-day, they’ll be responsible for taking high-fidelity prototypes and transforming them into fully functional features with a solid and secure API backend, clean front-end components, and automated tests. High-quality code and the ability to deliver milestones all the way to production are our key metrics for success.

You’re probably keen to hear about our tech stack:

  • We’re really enjoying React, Redux and Apollo GraphQL client with ES6, TypeScript and SCSS. Frontend code is unit-tested using Jest and Enzyme and cleanliness is maintained using latest approaches (ESLint, AirBnB style guide). Styling is separated from components and modularised using CSS modules approach with the help of webpack.
  • Our application backend is built on Ruby on Rails.
  • We take full advantage of Postgres with a trigger-based time machine, SQL views, and a willingness to drop from ActiveRecord to raw SQL when it makes sense.
  • AWS is our product’s home.
  • Sidekiq, Redis, ElasticSearch and websockets definitely play their parts.

And curious about our engineering workflow:

  • Each month we agree to milestones to deliver by the end of the month.
  • We release to production once every two weeks.
  • Jira and Slack help us coordinate across continents and time zones.
  • Gitlab helps us improve each other's code, and our well-tuned linter keeps reviews quick on style and heavy on substance.
  • Our QA team works hard to catch issues, bugs, and cross-browser glitches before we merge a pull request into the mainline, and again before release in the weekly smoke test.
  • Gitlab CI gives us the power to continually improve our automated testing infrastructure.

We'll promise you a great company, good compensation, an ever improving benefits program and an equity stake in a company with great career advancement opportunities.
