Senior Full Stack Software Engineer (m/f) - Ruby on Rails

A challenging task

You will implement new features for the XING platform with a good test coverage. We do not work alone, but we collaborate with other development teams at XING, connecting our apps using REST and AMQP. We are all full-stack developers, and as part of the team you will build complete features from end to end. As a Senior Software Engineer, you are also coaching other developers to help them become better in our craft. The events market is built on a Ruby on Rails backend, using MySQL, Redis, Memcache, and ElasticSearch. In the frontend, we use React in the newer parts, and jQuery in the older ones. The team also has developers working on the XING iOS and Android apps, and part of the job is to work together with them on new features, and provide them with the right API calls. At XING, we use Github Enterprise to manage our code base. We heavily use open source projects, and contribute back regularly (see also The team’s working language is English.
