At Tropic, we are building a different kind of engineering team, one that is optimized for developer happiness and productivity. We’ve done this by challenging the status quo of how teams and applications are built. 

From a technology perspective, we’ve embraced the conventions of Rails 7 and put the promise of Hotwire (Turbo/Stimulus) to the test. The results quickly spoke for themselves, and we’ve been able to build a modern, SPA-like experience all while using fundamentally simple full-stack web development principles. 

From a team perspective, we’ve chosen our tools and practices to be as lightweight as possible in order to maximize quality collaboration and deep work. 

What You’ll Work On
Use Rails 7 + Hotwire + Tailwind + ViewComponents to build features in a clean, near-greenfield application 
Collaborate with Product Managers and Designers to craft elegant solutions 
Help mentor and teach junior team members

Who You Are
4+ Years of full-stack Ruby on Rails experience
A solid understanding of web standards (Modern Javascript/HTML/CSS)
A desire to learn and embrace Hotwire and the newest Rails features

Nice to Have
Experience working at a SaaS product company
Proven ability to thrive in a remote-first environment
