Mid-level Ruby Developer

Boomf is a new spin-out from Mint Digital. Boomf launched in December and we've had a great 6 months, becoming one of the most successful ventures in Mint's history.

Our Instagram marshmallows have garnered worldwide attention. We've been delighted to see our customers use them to express heartfelt emotions. We've now sold over 2 tons of marshmallows, all in individually personalised 15g squares.

Marshmallows are just the beginning. Boomf's big ambition is to leverage the expressive power of technology to let our customers create personalised gifts that are wonderfully communicative. Gifts are a form of communication and deserve to be unique.

We are looking for someone to help architect and implement a platform for Boomf's current and future ventures.

Ruby is at the heart of Boomf, but we are also strong believers in using the best tool for the job. We also use Node.js, Redis, MongoDB, CoffeeScript, Heroku and more.

We love clean code and getting features out to users as fast as possible. We make liberal use of pull requests and deploy often. We're looking for someone that puts similar importance on these things. You'll enjoy collaborating as a team, be approachable by other developers and be up for pair programming on occasion.

As a developer in a small team you'll have plenty of responsibility. You will be involved in all aspects of decision making, from box design to API design! Ideally, you'll have 2 to 5 years experience, and will be looking to step up to a position with more responsibility.

This is your chance to make things happen and spread some joy. Our products are fun, but we're serious about success. We want to build a great culture that fosters amazingness. You'll have the chance to shape things from the start. Opportunities abound for the right person.
