Software Engineer

at Predictable Revenue in Vancouver

The Company
Predictable Revenue is a profitable, fast growth international technology company with offices in the Gastown area of Vancouver, BC and Santa Monica, California. Built in partnership with Aaron Ross author of the award-winning and best-selling book of the same name (Predictable Revenue), we’ve created a SaaS product that enables companies to rapidly accelerate their sales.


Responsibilities & Requirements
You will be working with a tight-knit team of experienced developers to suggest improvements to our architecture and processes wherever you see potential. You’ll also be implementing new features, reviewing code, estimating timelines, and squashing bugs. As a senior developer it is expected that you will be able to understand requirements, design solutions and communicate effectively with the team in addition to writing code. At Carburetor, we don’t believe in “lone wolves”. Everyone mentors and coaches everyone else regardless of title and you would be expected to do the same.


What you’ll be getting up to:
Solve complex technical problems with no obvious solution (scaling, performance, optimization)
Analyse company engineering practices then suggesting and implementing improvements
Receive coaching and mentorship from our advisors
Participate in Agile backlog grooming, sprint planning, recommitments, demos and retrospectives
Turn stories and chores / tasks into working features
We’re looking for people who…
Have worked with Ruby on Rails or AngularJS
Thrive in fast-paced and high-energy environments
Are smart, creative, and have an eagerness to learn at every opportunity
Are excellent communicators, especially online
Can think on their feet to rapidly understand and solve problems
Have the battle scars from rapidly scaling a software engineering team inside of a fast growth SaaS company


Bonus Points if you have…

  • Worked in a startup (even if it crashed and burned, we are keen to understand what you learned from the experience)
  • Started your own business, even if you were the only employee
  • Personal ambitions, whether it be winning a world class League of Legends tournament or completing a marathon. We want people who will add their interests and experience to our thriving culture



The Details
This is a full-time local role where you’ll be working out of our Vancouver Gastown office with the ability to work remotely at times.. We perform our daily scrum meetings via Hangouts with watercooler gossip being delegated to HipChat. We don’t micromanage; you’ll choose your tasks from the JIRA backlog and submit them for review in the form of a GitHub pull request.


Our stack runs top to bottom with Nginx, AngularJS 1.5 (in Haml/CoffeeScript/SCSS), Unicorn, Ruby on Rails 4.1, and finally PostgreSQL 9.3. We use Travis-CI for testing, Code Climate for metrics and Capistrano for deployment. All our developers have Macs, but our CTO is a Linux junkie and the servers run Ubuntu.
