Job Description
The IT team is at the start of a significant period aiming at simplifying our architecture, improving the performance of our applications and adapting our working practices.  Due to this we are looking to expand the team with a Permanent Senior Ruby on Rails Developer.
We work in a collaborative environment using agile techniques, where you will be working with different departments to come up with the best possible solutions.
The core languages of our codebase are Ruby, Perl and Oracle PL/SQL. Although primarily a Ruby on Rails developer, you will often at times find yourself getting stuck into our Perl and Oracle PL/SQL codebase. Ruby shares many similarities with Perl.<https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/documentation/ruby-from-other-languages/to-ruby-from-perl/> Having the aptitude to pick up new languages and remain forward thinking when working with Legacy systems is crucial.  <https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/documentation/ruby-from-other-languages/to-ruby-from-perl/>
Our goal is to have a strong Ruby on Rails architecture serving all of our customer-facing users, whilst bit-by-bit we re-architect and modernise our Perl Back-Office applications which serve our colleagues.
The Development team consists of QA, Business Analysts and Developers. Our ideal approach to project work is iterative, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between a self-organising and cross-functional team.
Due to the changes listed above the Development team is in the Forming stage, where Ruby and Perl are learning how to work together to combine old with new, and move towards more agile, sustainable working practices which you can help form.
Our tech stack includes Perl, Ruby, Rails 5, Rails 6, Webpack, React.js, Redis, Terraform, AWS, New Relic, Ansible, Oracle, Postgres and Boomi.
Personal development is sought after, you will be given an opportunity to build Business and Personal Objectives against what makes you tick. Tech conferences, talks, workshops and training can be built into your development plan.
The ideal candidate is interested in keeping relevant with cutting edge technology and sharing their learnings with the team, naturally being reciprocated. We want to create an environment where you can continue to grow, even when the project you are working on at the time may not be technically challenging (it happens).

We need someone who is resourceful in getting things done — a productive team member that is both independent and collaborative and should be comfortable taking ownership of projects and building scalable solutions.

Doing self-driven research or asking the other individuals questions where they are most knowledgeable, our ideal teammate is constantly looking to learn something new and become better at what they do.

This is an opportunity to join a business with huge growth potential and an IT team at the beginning of a journey where you can be key in setting its direction.
