Role Summary:
A Sr. Full-Stack Rails Developer at inKind is primarily responsible for developing, documenting, and deploying new features for the APIs used by our apps and 3rd party integrations, as well as the web front-end for our internal and client-facing portals.

A Sr. Full-Stack Rails Developer at inKind is first and foremost an expert problem solver with a love for code and a maker's mentality. Responsibilities include everything from planning out data models to optimizing complex reporting queries, integrating with numerous 3rd parties, and working with the product team to build intuitive GUIs for our internal/external portals, complete with data visualizations and charts. You stay up to date on new gems, frameworks, and tools to speed up development, while keeping a sharp eye out for potential vulnerabilities and edge cases that may result in unwanted behaviors. You'll work on modernizing the existing code base, making quick tweaks, and (once up to speed) train and mentor more junior developers. You would work closely with the CTO and Product Team at our office (Post-COVID), as well as our distributed team of developers. This is a senior-level position where you would play a key role in influencing architecture decisions.

  • Experience stepping into and working with large existing Rails projects.
  • Experience building API integrations into existing complex systems.
  • Experience working w/ Docker, Kubernetes, & AWS.
  • Experience with both sides of API development (designing API endpoints for 3rd parties, and consuming 3rd party API endpoints in a variety of formats).
  • Experience developing Oauth integrations.
  • Experience updating gems, Ruby versions, and Rails versions without loss of functionality.
  • Creative problem solver who keeps up on new gems, libraries, etc, and can effectively assess their staying power & any concerns (security, patching, required dependencies, etc).
  • You're always looking for ways to work faster & more efficiently, while balancing competing concerns (tech debt, cost, security, complexity, etc).
  • Excellent proactive communicator who can work effectively w/ others, both in-person (post-pandemic/vaccination) and remotely.
  • You're not afraid to raise concerns, ask questions, and enjoy helping mentor others on the team.
  • Keen eye for bugs, doing code-reviews.
  • Keen eye for security issues & app hardening.
  • Takes initiative in finding and fixing bugs before shipping.
  • Ability to quickly troubleshoot bugs, no matter where they show up (dev, test, staging, or production).

  • You are detail-oriented: in Hospitality, details matter, and this translates to everything we do.

  • You are a dreamer and an executor: we love innovative thinking and encourage team members to present thoughtful ideas (big and small). You'll also take the lead on testing your ideas and rolling out the successful ones, implementing new best practices.
  • You are motivated: you will be part of a fast-growing company so you should be hungry to hit targets and be intrinsically motivated to increase revenue, no matter what part of the team you are on.
  • You are a people person: having good relationships with your colleagues makes work more fun and makes the product better. You'll be part of a small but mighty team, so working comfortably together is essential.

An Insider's view of inKind

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We're a collaborative, hard-working and ambitious team! We enjoy spending time together and celebrating each other's achievements. One of our values is to call out achievements big or small, which is something we practice regularly at all levels of the company. We're a very positive place to work (and being dog-friendly helps with that)!


Head of People

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We've reached a pivotal moment in scale with the amount of users and clients joining our platform. We're wildly excited to release our new discovery portal and app that will create an expansive and connected network making it even easier for our users to discover new venues and unique restaurant events only accessible to our network.


Head of Product

What makes someone successful on your team?

We are a team of doers who get things done in a collaborative environment. We move as one unit working closely to accomplish the team’s goals that, in turn, make inKind very successful. We ask questions (a lot of questions), make mistakes, and learn from every decision we make - evolving as a team as we learn from the past and plan for the future.


Chief Revenue Officer and Co-Founder

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The team I’m on is oftentimes the first interaction a client has with inKind. That can be a lot of pressure, but the encouragement to speak up & collaborate across teams means that I have a solid understanding of team goals as well as the goals of the company. The more I interact with teams adjacent to mine, the better prepared I am.
