We take the best elements of virtual teams and combine them with a support structure that encourages innovation, social interaction, and fun. We see no borders, move at a fast pace, and are never afraid to break the mold.

Position Description

Ruby on Rails powers a lot of our infrastructure, and we’re always looking for smart Ruby developers ideally with some React experience to help us reach the next level!

By joining one of Toptal’s Core Engineering teams, you’ll have the opportunity to work on a variety of meaningful Ruby/React initiatives with a team of highly skilled authorities from around the world. At Toptal, we push the boundaries on what’s possible every single day, and we’d love for you to be a part of it!

The bulk of the work we do every day is a mix of Back-end work in Ruby and Front-end work in React. If you have back-end skills and if you are comfortable getting your hands dirty in the front-end as well, this is the right opportunity for you.

We don’t cut corners, and we don’t make compromises—we build expertly designed web apps that are polished, fast, well-tested, and a joy to use.

This is a remote position that can be done from anywhere. Due to the remote nature of this role, we are unable to provide visa sponsorship. Resumes and communication must be submitted in English.

Responsibilities:

  • Write elegant, efficient, and testable Ruby and React code which is easy to maintain and debug.
  • Write, update, integrate your features with React front-end components.

  • As a true teammate, continuously improve the team’s processes, brainstorm ideas, and communicate statuses, and progress.
  • Mentor other people, provide feedback and grow as a part of the team.
  • Learn new concepts and technologies.

In the first week, expect to:

  • Join our team, where you will be introduced to Toptal’s practices and processes.
  • Start participating in company-wide training sessions.
  • Set up your local environment and get familiar with our tech stack.
  • Create your first pull request.

In the first month, expect to:

  • Familiarize yourself with the team’s business domain.
  • Contribute to our product development.
  • Develop a deeper understanding of our technology, processes, and product pipeline.

In the first three months, expect to:

  • Actively supply software planning, development, and maintenance.
  • Suggest and implement improvements to Toptal’s processes and codebase.

In the first six months, expect to:

  • Lead technical initiatives in our team.
  • Drive improvements to the codebase and processes.

In the first year, expect to:

  • Have a detailed understanding of Toptal’s technical stack, collaboration rituals, processes, and performance.
  • Mentor Toptal’s new team members.

Requirements:

  • Have 3+ years of web development experience with Ruby and React.
  • Have a confirmed grasp of object-oriented programming, clean code, and best testing practices.
  • Consider multiple quality-dimensions like user impact, failure tolerance, code maintenance, implementation time, security breaches, and performance.
  • Have experience with modern Javascript, preferably Typescript and React.

  • Be genuinely interested in technology and love to try new things.
  • Tackle complex problems but also consider multiple solutions, weigh them, and decide on the best course of action.
  • Thrive on providing and receiving transparent but always constructive feedback.
  • Knowledge of GraphQL is a plus.
