You will need expert-level skills with Ruby on Rails, Postgres, and a little bit of javascript. Our codebase is complex (but clean) and fairly tech debt-free. When we say "expert-level", you are comfortable with what's happening behind the scenes with Rails and routinely dive into gems to understand how they actually work.

We host directly on AWS and keep gems to a minimum but do rely on: Stripe, Devise, Shrine and Sidekiq Enterprise. There is a steady stream of complex programming puzzles for us to solve, and you will have a strong voice in the evolution of our app.

Ideally, you have some familiarity with inventory, manufacturing, or warehousing concepts and some exposure to consumer packaged goods businesses.


  • Minimum of 10 years of current experience with Ruby and Rails.
  • Based in the U.S. or Canada.
  • Bonus: some javascript knowledge, mostly in the form of stimulus.


  • Healthcare (general + vision + dental + life)
  • Flexible PTO
  • Stock options
  • 401(k)
  • 100% remote work, no travel.
