Software Engineer (Ruby on Rails)

| Greater Denver Area
Software Engineer (Ruby on Rails)
Travelers Haven seeks a software engineer with strong abstract problem-solving abilities to join our Hotel Engine group (https://www.hotelengine.com). You will work directly with the executive team and the employees using our software to help shape the future of our company. Our team is small but focused on shipping quality product. The ideal candidate for this position is willing and able to work full-stack and do CSS/JS as needed but gravitates more towards the back-end systems side.
In this position, you will be making architectural decisions with other resources, building new features and performing maintenance for a complex yet reliable Ruby on Rails environment with an Angular/React front-end. We have big goals for 2019 and need to be proactive about capacity planning and systems performance.
This is an in-office position. As a small team we do best if everyone is on the same schedule and can collaborate face-to-face when needed. The right candidate wants to be a go to resource for their areas of responsibility, share what they know and learn from teammates.
Remote candidates are encouraged to apply if they can commit to being in Denver within four weeks after receiving an offer.
How We Work:
  • We ship code daily to our production, staging, and continuous integration environments. Test results, deployments, and production monitoring alerts are posted to Slack.
  • We do one-week sprints (Scrum/Kanban mix). Outside of daily standups and weekly sprint planning and retrospectives, we keep meetings to an absolute minimum to maximize development time.
  • We play to each team member’s strengths. Whether you skew frontend or backend, you’ll primarily be using the skills you’re best at and enjoy the most, but be expected to jump in anywhere as needed.
  • We currently all use Mac desktops for development but if you prefer Linux that’s good too.
  • We keep to a 40-hour work week and respect your time away from the office.
Desired Qualifications:
  • 5+ years of professional web development. The more ruby, the better.
  • 3+ years of Ruby on Rails
  • Strong computer science problem-solving ability for creating, testing, and optimizing scalable algorithms.
  • Good communication skills. Whether it's interfacing with a client via email or working with an internal team communication is paramount for our team's continued success.
  • Experience with high-volume, public-facing production applications and performance testing.
  • Experience with implementing web application security best practices.
  • The ideal candidate would have experience with the following:
    • Heroku and Amazon Web Services
    • Postgres/SQL
    • Git
    • CLIs
    • REST/SOAP APIs
    • Sidekiq/RabbitMQ
    • RSpec and TDD
    • HTML/CSS/JS (vanilla or jQuery)
    • Node/Backend JS (Angular/React experience is a plus)
What we provide:
  • Paid vacation, holidays and sick days
  • Medical, Dental, and Vision Insurance Plans
  • 401K and supplemental insurance plan benefits
  • Paid gym membership and organic fruit delivery.
  • Free parking, free option for secure bike storage.
  • Discounted Wireless Service plans
  • Company sponsored events, holiday parties, and volunteer opportunities.
  • A healthy work/life balance

An Insider's view of Travelers Haven

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

"My work-life balance is the ability to be passionate about both work and life away from work. My purest source of passion is derived from providing for and spending time with my daughter. I am fortunate to love my work, be part of a company that values family, and find joy working with my colleagues."

Dan

VP of Strategic Relations

What projects are you most excited about?

“We’re encouraged to take on as much ownership and responsibility as we can handle, so we’re able to continuously improve and acquire new skills,” she said. “I’m currently working on a project to automate some manual processes, which should make some of my coworkers’ jobs a lot easier, and that’s the most rewarding thing to me.”

Kirstie

Software Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

The most impactful lesson has been time management. Sales can be overwhelming at times, so having a good system and structured schedule has proved to be extremely beneficial. Travelers Haven also allows their employees to work together to volunteer and contribute to those in need on a larger scale.

Rick

Sales Associate

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As a leader, I want to always provide my team with clear direction but I never want to stifle creativity. So while I may tell them what I need done, I will never tell them how to do it because everyone operates differently and those different methods is what set us apart from other companies.

Arielle

Director of Operations

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I could never be as efficient and effective without our team- through delegation and communication we make sure every facet of the client’s stay is as seamless as possible. Whether it’s coordinating deadlines or brainstorming on issue prevention, we’re always in constant communication.
