Senior Ruby On Rails Developer

Who is SingleMind?

SingleMind is a way of thinking. We're also a digital product design and development firm headquartered in the Portland area. We seek out dedicated and professional engineers and team members with broad interests and skills. Is that you?

We're currently searching for a Ruby on Rails Developer to join our growing team. We are a diverse, agile oriented, Open Source focused, user centered software development consultancy that consistently exceeds our customers expectations.

We have an immediate need for someone with the skill sets below.

Primary requirements

You are looking for a chance to create engaging and interactive web applications
You love building both back-end and front-end code for new or existing web applications
You stay ahead of web developments and trends and are passionate about collaborating with like-minded teams of engineers to share your interests
You love working with web-based services and APIs to bridge communication and extend features from other applications or services
You want to participate in project planning, design review, and architectural meetings
You always look for ways to increase your knowledge and find things to be passionate about


  • 3 years experience developing web applications
  • Competence with web programming languages and frameworks with emphasis on Ruby on Rails
  • Experience using GIT
  • Ability to work individually and as a team member
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Ability to take initiative in collaborating with team members and external parties
  • Ability to design, explain, and estimate creative solutions

Valued Experience

  • Developing and maintaining web applications written in NodeJS/HTML/CSS/Javascript
  • Experience with a variety of JavaScript libraries and frameworks
  • Ability to take a PSD/AI design and convert it to W3C-compliant markup that looks identical (pixel-perfect)
  • Ability to become proficient with new technologies quickly

Our Culture

We are seeking passionate, smart people who love technology and want to be a part of something bigger. Our projects range from 3rd-party systems integration development, which involves modifying large pre-existing codebases, to crafting small to large-scale applications (i.e. eLearning applications used by hundreds of thousands of concurrent daily users). We are not seeking someone who only considers themselves a "front-end developer" or a "web application programmer". Are you someone who is able to see the potential of a project and is excited at the chance to turn that idea into a reality?

The ideal fit will be self-motivated and capable of both independence and collaboration (via Scrum or similar Agile methodologies). You are able to accurately estimate the amount of work required to achieve a goal. You are constantly looking for opportunities to improve your skillset and enjoy finding ways to make processes (both software and human) more efficient.

About Us

Our office is located on the Willamette River in beautiful downtown Lake Oswego, Oregon. We work flexible hours and operate as a team. Our clients range from small well funded start-ups to large multi-billion dollar international companies. Our space is bright with private and team work areas. We're surrounded by public transportation and convenient car & bike parking. A portion of the team works remotely, so telecommuting is an option. We truly believe in a balanced work/life ethic. SingleMind is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
