Engineering

Sr. Rubyist - Marlborough, MA, New York, NY, Tulsa, OK, Lyndhurst, NJ

The Vitals engineering team is looking for a senior rubyist to join a new engineering team. We will be building new internal products and applications that help our two businesses be more productive and serve our customers better (think location services, photo stores, job runners, etc). Our mission is to promote best practices while delivering useful services to the various application teams.

Our team is small (will be about 5 people within 6 months) operating within a larger (35 ) engineering team.

We like clean code, value constant and honest feedback, strive for 100% test coverage and use small Github pull requests to drive our development. We’re looking for strong developers that love evangelizing best practices.

Vitals is growing like a startup but we have a real product and real revenue from large clients (and consumers). Our code helps millions of people make better decisions about their healthcare. We’re still a small enough organization that you will be empowered to sculpt the culture of the team.
