Senior Rails Engineer

MIGHTY 🧗🏽‍♀️

Here’s the thing: Inside most departments or companies of any size, it’s actually easier to find a new job than it is to find something impactful to work on. This is not good.

  • We connect the dots between goals, work, people, and skills inside companies.

  • We’re focused on providing visibility and alignment to work, while delivering meaningful growth, collaboration, and recognition for individuals and teams.

  • We help people, teams and leaders combine the execution needs of business with the development needs of employees.

Come shape the future of work!


At Mighty, we deeply care about building products that people love. We're not solving a small problem. We’re creating a new category of software that will define the companies that want to build the future and enable the modern generation of employees who are aiming to achieve their potential.

We want to align what matters to businesses to what matters to humans. We are very optimistic that this will help solve so many of the problems that our current work culture has created.

At Mighty, you will have massive impact. You will not just engineer product, but help define product strategy and translate big ideas into experiences that delight. You will create products that help people do work that matters.


As a senior engineer you will help shape the way people interact with our philosophy. You will translate these sweeping ideas into real products.

Our Tech Stack:

  • Our web application is built with Ruby, Rails, React, PostgresQL and GraphQL

  • We test our Rails 6 API with RSpec (we like to use the latest tech when we can)

  • Our application stack is hosted on Heroku (we’re working on going full CI/CD)

  • We have a small team with front-end, back-end, and full stack engineers

What you will do:

  • Build a web application to enable organizations to move faster and employees to be more engaged through meaningful work

  • Work closely with the Product Team to drive the product direction and achieve product/market fit for new features

  • Help shape a diverse engineering culture that is changing and growing

  • Explore, evaluate, and apply new technologies

  • Provide mentorship and guidance to the teammates


  • You have 5+ years of professional experience creating software with Ruby and Rails

  • You are a problem solver that loves writing clean solutions

  • You value clarity over cleverness in your code

  • You have experience writing well-tested code

  • You believe in building teams with diversity of background, thinking, and experience

  • You have a proven ability to own technical design for projects of moderate complexity, and understand the tradeoffs in creating good software

Nice to haves:

  • Experience with GraphQL

  • Exposure to API-only rails

  • Experience with Test Driven Design

  • Love of ice cream (Not a real requirement, but we do eat a lot of ice cream)


We don’t do white boarding or algorithm challenges or random questions that we spring on you during the interview. Instead we collaborate with you to design your interview. So you come to your interview highly prepared for a specific task in advance. It’s more of an audition than an interview.


We are working towards defining a market and changing the face of work as we know it. At Mighty we are building a team full of folks ready to do the best work of their lives.
