Headquarters: United States

👋 Howdy! Stuart here, founder and head of engineering at Rivo :)
  • Are you a full stack Rubyist with 6+ years experience?
  • Do you want to work on the bleeding edge of the latest Rails has to offer? (Rails 7 & Hotwire)
  • Interested in helping build and scale a rapidly growing Saas Company while sticking to Rails best practices?
If so - awesome! Keep reading. If not - no worries, perhaps we'll cross paths in the future.

What is Rivo?

We're a loyalty and reviews platform for fast-growing ecommerce brands. We're positioned as a developer-friendly solution in a market of cookie-cutter offerings.

About the job

With the help of our small team, (and some awesome team members at thoughtbot) - we've built an amazing platform on Rails that has scaled wonderfully so far.

To give a small indication, we process roughly 20-30M Sidekiq Jobs per day and are adding 8-10M db rows per day.

How we're different

We might lose you here :)

1. We believe in writing Rails in a particular style, sticking close to standardrb and general Rails best practices.

2. If a feature takes our competitors 8 weeks to build, we build a solid MVP in 8-10 days. We utilize the 80/20 principle to focus on what matters and just ship. Of course, we look at the usage metrics, then come back and complete the other 20% over time.

If this sounds like your style, we'd love to chat.
