About Splitrock Studio

We make software products.

We're great at finding smart people and giving them the resources to help them grow and thrive. By providing a salary, leave and all the bells and whistles, we've created a uniquely inclusive environment to enable anyone to start (or join) a startup — not just those who can afford to take the risk.

We are on the hunt for a mid/senior Ruby on Rails developer working primarily with our popular Software as a Service (SaaS) product BugHerd.

About BugHerd

BugHerd is the best way for web teams to collect and act on client feedback. It’s like sticky notes on a website.

Way back in 2011, BugHerd burst onto the scene as one of the up and coming Australian startups. 9 years later, the gloss has worn off a little (and it didn’t quite make the unicorn club), but what is left is a resilient SaaS product in the process of completing a remarkable turnaround.

Today BugHerd is profitable and growing steadily with a loyal group of customers and a team of people committed to making it great.

What you'll do

  • Develop our core web application for collecting feedback on websites
  • Define and maintain development practices that let us move fast with quality
  • Help us prioritise what to build - and what not to build
  • Build and ship new features in Ruby on Rails/ JS (React)
  • Challenge yourself with the help of people who genuinely care about your development and wellbeing

What we look for:

  • 5+ years Ruby on Rails
  • Postgres
  • Heroku
  • Comfortable navigating a mature codebase
  • Bonus points awarded for JS, DevOps
  • Passion to build a product that solves user problems

What can I expect from Splitrock?

  • A supportive team
  • Learning and development
  • Trust and autonomy
  • An open mind

We are flexible, autonomous and results-oriented. We thrive on creating great experiences for our customers and have a “learn-by-doing” attitude.

You will be trusted to manage your own time and deliver quality work and in return will enjoy true workplace flexibility including generous leave allowances and a team who respects your personal life just as much as your professional life.

This is a fantastic opportunity to develop your skills on a growing SaaS product. Your success will have a clear and demonstrable impact on the results of the company, setting you up for opportunities within our business and beyond.

Note that although we are big on flexibility and have adapted very well to working remotely, we are looking for an Australian based team member who will want to join us (on a regular basis) in our Melbourne based office (post-Covid induced isolation period)
