Discourse is Hiring! Full Stack Engineer - Customization Expert

About the job

This job posting is for someone in North / Central / South America, ideally in the UTC-6 → UTC-10 time zone.

We’re looking for a full stack developer to help customize our forum software for our Fortune 500 customers. You will be working closely with external teams of developers and managers, so excellent written and verbal communication skills are a must.

Software engineers at Discourse are generalists. Some days you may be working on a complex JavaScript feature implemented in Ember.js. Other days you may be working on our Ruby on Rails API server.

About you

You work well independently and remotely with minimal amounts of day-to-day micromanagement. You are able to translate a customer’s vision into code, and are skilled at negotiating feature priorities. You can estimate well, and are able to properly communicate the timelines, pros and cons of various solutions to a problem.

At Discourse, we have many ongoing enterprise projects that need focused, dedicated work. You are comfortable being the primary point of contact for a single enterprise customer for long periods of time.

We have no central physical office: we have always been 100% remote, and our people come from all over the world. Chat is not our primary mode of communication. Most of our internal communication is done asynchronously.

You should be passionate about software development and comfortable picking up and exploring new technologies as needed.

Ruby and JavaScript experience are a must; Discourse applications usually complete a paid trial project prior to joining the team.

You should be kind to your co-workers. We believe strongly in a welcoming workplace, where people with diverse backgrounds and cultures meet together to create something amazing.

About us

There are many benefits to working at Discourse including a flexible work schedule, 5 weeks of holiday per year, funding for a co-working space, and more! Learn more.
