At Cyanna, we believe education should be accessible to everyone, and that if you’ve got knowledge to share, nothing should stand in your way. So we work with educational institutions to help them launch, run, and market their schools — and make sure they’re compliant with government regulations along the way.

One of the things we offer is customized software solutions that make it easy for institutions to track and teach students, and for regulatory agencies to track institutions. Right now, we’re looking for a full time Ruby on Rails Developer to help build our next generation e-learning platform.

Here’s who we’re looking for:
  • A life-long learner who’s always on top of new technologies, but still able to pick the right tools for the right job. Pragmatism is totally your thing.
  • A seasoned developer with a couple of years experience working with Ruby, Ruby on Rails or a similar platform.
  • A Github guru who believes Github pull request workflow is the only way to go. You love contributing to open source.
  • An expert on Agile methodologies like Scrum and Kanban.
  • An adventurer who’s unafraid of Ruby 2, Rails 3/4, Bundler, ES6, HTML5, Git, Test::Unit, Rspec, PostgreSQL, TDD, clean code, and refactoring.
  • A trooper who writes tests and feels familiar with automated build tools like CircleCI or Travis.
  • A natural communicator who speaks and writes English as easily as you speak and write code.
  • An easy-going personality who’s also adept at working efficiently in a virtual, fast paced environment.
These are the skills we expect you to have:
  • Ruby
  • Rails
  • JavaScript
  • HTML
  • CSS (SASS)
  • jQuery (Backbone.js or Ember.js a plus)
  • SQL (PostgreSQL a plus)
  • Git
  • API development
  • Browser compatibility issues
  • Deployment methodologies (e.g. Capistrano)
  • Database/query optimization
This is what will take you over the top:

Experience with writing well tested clean code, AWS DevOps knowledge, and scaling Rails applications.
