Diversity in inclusion strategy 

We proactively work on improving diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) at thoughtbot. We aim to maintain an inclusive work environment where everyone can thrive professionally, as well as have full lives outside of work. We acknowledge that DEI work is never done, and that we will make mistakes along the way. We are continuously working on learning, improving ourselves, and the company.

We have a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Council that is a cross-Team group of people who drive diversity, equity, and inclusion work in a strategic and meaningful way.

Their purpose is to create a more diverse, equitable, inclusive, fulfilling, and safe environment for all people in our community. We do this by continuously identifying our challenges, raising awareness, facilitating action, and holding ourselves accountable for improvement.

While the council oversees and manages the DEI work we’re doing, they aren’t the ones who will do all of the work. The council spins up interested groups of people who actively work on different problems, initiatives, or topic areas, like Apprenticeship, Recruiting, Retention, and more.

Ruby on Rails Developer

Salary: £50,000 – £65,000

About us

About the role

thoughtbot web developers are able to build high-quality, test-driven applications with Ruby on Rails. Well-qualified candidates will have an excellent knowledge of refactoring, application architecture, performance tuning, debugging, design patterns, and working effectively in legacy applications. We don’t expect every candidate to have experience with all of these aspects of Rails development.

While Rails experience is a must, we also work with clients using Python, Elixir, Node.js, Scala, and front-end tooling including React and Elm. Experience or interest in these technologies is a big plus.

As consultants, we work closely with our clients. Experience with a client-facing role like consulting, teaching, or business development is also valuable, but not required.

Well-qualified candidates value diversity, equity, and inclusion, and contributing to an inclusive working and learning environment.

We especially appreciate candidates that demonstrate commitment to valuing DEI and contributing to an inclusive working and learning environment. We also understand that not everyone has had the opportunity to commit to this work, and that’s okay.

We encourage you to apply even if you don’t match 100% of the requirements. Let us know if you need any specific accommodations during the interview process.

 

What you will get

Our goal is to provide ourselves with the best possible benefits, tools to use, and environments to work in while staying sustainable.
