The job

Justworks is seeking an experienced engineer to join our team. As a successful candidate, you have demonstrated the ability to build, deploy and maintain features of large-scale, distributed applications. You understand the concept of “separation of concerns” and have leveraged design patterns to solve technical challenges. You understand and use automated testing as a productivity multiplier.

The Time and Attendance team is primarily responsible for all aspects of time tracking within the Justworks application. This includes time entry, approvals processes, integrations with relevant third parties, reporting, etc. You will work closely with senior engineers to scope, design, and build new features and functionality in this area. Your initial focus will be integrating our clock in/out application with our main web application, including the timecard product.

We work primarily in Ruby on Rails and JavaScript/React, but prior knowledge is not a requirement, and you should have a deep understanding that goes beyond the ability to use these tools.

What you'll do

    Work collaboratively with other engineers, product managers, and designers
    Scope work and coordinate efforts with other engineers on the team
    Provide guidance and support growth in other engineers on the team and across other teams
    Build features and functionality that our customers use directly, typically in an iterative fashion taking into account user feedback
    Implement services and integrations with internal and external clients/engineering teams
    Design systems with privacy, security, and scalability as top concerns
    Enhance our testing, monitoring and continuous deployment infrastructure

Qualifications

    Minimum of 5 years of professional hands-on experience
    Solid understanding of data structures and algorithms
    Strong object-oriented design and coding skills
    Experience supporting other engineers and acting as a “tech lead”
    Experience working with complicated systems at scale
    Experience building APIs and/or webhooks

Technologies We Use

    Ruby on Rails, Javascript/React, Redux, MySQL, AWS, Git
    ElasticSearch, Docker, InfluxDB, Redshift, Jenkins, Nagios
