How do we work?
We are a largely autonomous product team comprising our Co-Founder & CTO, Product Manager, Project Manager, Lead Full Stack Developer, and 2 Full Stack Developers. We aim to meet daily at 9am PT for a brief standup that is part social check in and part traditional standup. Outside of our standup we try to keep meetings to a minimum. In a regular week, you should expect to make most daily standups and a 1-on-1 with your manager.
Our team is spread across 3 timezones today, Pacific Time (2 people), Central Time (2 people), Eastern Time (1 person) and Eastern European Time (1 person). Some of the tools we use to work together remotely are Confluence, Slack, ClickUp, and Tuple.
We pride ourselves on the product we’ve built with such a small team and we share on call rotations, and occasional devops and platform work across the team. Our Gitlab CI/CD pipeline runs in <20m and deploys in another ~10m. In addition to GitLab, we use VS Code, AppSignal, Scout, and OpsGenie regularly.
What will you do at Bridge?
As a Senior Full Stack Developer, you’ll collaborate closely with our Product Manager to plan, architect, build, and deploy new services and features. On a day to day basis, you’ll be expected to write clean Ruby and React code, review merge requests, and provide feedback and guidance to junior team members. Once you’ve settled in, we’ll look forward to discussing improvements to our existing processes, including our on call rotations, tool usage, and devops practices. As a Senior member of our team, we’ll expect you to demonstrate best practices across the team and actively cultivate a safe and collaborative working environment.
What are we looking for?
We're looking for very experienced candidates for this role (we estimate ~7 years of professional experience as a developer), but we value contributions over credentials and are especially interested in candidates that can demonstrate the following:
- Experience leading teams and managing conflicting priorities to deliver exceptional outcomes
- Experience leading development of multiple features, including both front and back end components
- Experience debugging production applications and using tools to coordinate incident response
- Ability to review code and provide collaborative feedback
- Ability to communicate clearly and effectively, whether documenting code, discussing project proposals, or training new team members
- Must be adept with Ruby/Rails, React/TypeScript, and PostgreSQL
What do we provide?
We love what we do and regularly hear from our community about our impact. Join us and you’ll be a part of the next generation of legal services and the fastest growing immigration services provider in the US.
