About Knowde

Knowde is the marketplace for chemicals, polymers and ingredients. For the first time, you can search, filter, sample and quote from every major producer on earth – all in one place.

Job Description

Overview:

Every human-made product on earth traces its roots to chemistry – from food to pharma, from Q-tips to qubits: chemistry makes every innovation possible. Can’t wait for that foldable phone? Thank DuPont. Have a kid and rely on baby wipes? Thank Lonza. Love solar shingles that can power your home? Thank Dow Chemical.

Knowde is transforming the $5 trillion chemical industry starting with the creation of a rich marketplace where people can crush the product innovation life-cycle down from years to days. We’re doing this by connecting customers and producers early in the product development life-cycle where they can research, discover, collaborate, negotiate and purchase chemistries and products quickly and repeatedly with a level of information transparency never before seen in this industry.

  • As a small, remote team you’ll be empowered to work directly with leadership and the product team to make decisions about your code and the future of the product.
  • Be a trailblazer by contributing to the build of a complex ecommerce marketplace, the first of its kind in the Chemicals space.
  • Have a strong emphasis on shipping features quickly without sacrificing code quality.
  • Own your projects from software design to implementation and deployment.
  • Take pride in your work by implementing cutting-edge technologies and writing state-of-the-art code.
  • Emphasize simplicity and pragmatism, which is reflected in your elegant code that other developers emulate.

What you’ll bring:

  • Very good knowledge of Ruby language and Rails framework
  • Great knowledge of SQL
  • Good knowledge of Sinatra is a plus
  • Ability to take tasks from requirements to deployment quickly and independently
  • Ability to work within distributed, multidisciplinary teams
  • Design and build scalable, high-availability mission-critical systems and APIs
  • High bar for quality and a phenomenal attention to detail
  • Working knowledge of deployment process (Capistrano), user authentication and authorization (Devise)
  • Ability to properly design and implement clear and scalable project structure
  • Experience with test-driven development. Ability to create and maintain useful test suite.
  • Fluent in speaking and writing English
  • Experience in web service deployments

Our Stack:

  • Languages: Ruby
  • Frameworks: RoR / Sinatra
  • Databases: PostgreSQL / MySQL / MongoDB / Redis / S3

Offer:

  • Location: Rzeszów, Poland or remotely 
  • Flexible working hours and the possibility to work remotely
