About Influitive

Influitive is your strategic partner in customer marketing. Our SaaS product and professional services help companies discover, nurture, and mobilize their advocates to accelerate sales and increase customer lifetime value. We believe the companies that put their customer advocates at the heart of their business are the ones that will win.

Job Description

How you’ll make a huge impact here - and for your career:

You’ll be able to work on a product, AdvocateHub, that 8 of the top 10 software companies in the world use today to build communities that deliver efficient revenue growth, activating users and mobilizing advocates to power their growth. In short, we’re a passionate team working hard to build the best customer marketing and advocacy product in the world.

Software and tech debt go hand in hand, that’s why we have a third of our teams investing in our platform to make life easier for developers. You’ll also have two days a month to invest in problems you think are worth solving. So if you love learning, tackling tough problems and working with great people, this could be for you.

Our Technology:

Our core product is written in Ruby on Rails, we’ve created dozens of other services to support our scale as well as speed up our delivery schedule.  While we use ruby on rails to serve our apis and store our data, our frontend application is a rich web app built with modern reactjs with a focus on functional and declarative programming. We’re currently in a big push to embrace graphql and expand our usage of typed data. If you’ve ever wanted to get away from the imperative style so often found in javascript codebases, you may find our tech stack particularly interesting. We use the ramdajs functional library everywhere, Gulio Canti’s tcomb for typing, and we’re exploring typescript and algebraic data types for future projects.

We make extensive use of AWS, Docker, Postgres, Mongo, ElasticSearch, Drools, Memcached and Redis within our infrastructure. We use tools like GitLab CI to streamline our deployments and tools like Datadog to see what’s going on under the hood. In addition, we are a big fan of Terraform and in the process of automating all the things!

What an incredible candidate looks like:

  • React experience
    • At least 2 years experience creating dynamic applications using ReactJS
    • Up to date knowledge of the React ecosystem, including suspense, hooks etc.
    • Familiarity with graphql and apollo
    • Experience building/using component libraries
    • Experience with css-in-js, EmotionCss in particular
    • Bonus points for integrating react with legacy codebases (backbone/rails)
  • General Javascript experience
    • Knowledge of modern build tools, processors, bundles
    • Familiarity writing and maintaining internal nodejs tooling/scripting
    • Fully comfortable with npm, Babel, webpack.
  • General
    • Very comfortable in bash/zsh/fish/your shell of choice
    • Familiarity with Docker
    • Resourceful and collaborative, able to act as a mentor to other developers, and want to help those around you succeed. At times, acting as a lead for other developers to complete larger projects.
    • You don’t shy away from detective work and problem solving (even when the answer isn’t obvious); finding a solution to a problem excites you.
    • Comfortable and willing to spread your knowledge throughout the team
    • Last but not least, you’ve got a documentation mindset
