About Almanac

The most powerful platform for async collaboration.

Almanac is a modern collaboration tool for remote teams that makes the dream of fewer meetings a reality. It’s a single source of truth for project documentation and decision-making: one place where remote technical teams can write, approve, track, and document.

We believe teams and companies are the sum of their systems and processes—but most are surprisingly informal about how they collaborate, leading to chaos, delays, and frustration for managers, executives, and clients.

Technical teams at companies like Airbyte, Ender, and Indeed are using Almanac to change how they write docs, get feedback without meetings, and automate repetitive processes.

We are looking for a full-time, senior full stack engineer with strong Rails and Javascript experience to join our team of talented coders and designers.

About the role:

We’re looking for a hungry, talented engineer who wants to make a big impact at an exciting inflection point in our growth.

You’ll be responsible for building out the intuitive, interactive experiences that our customers need to run their businesses through docs, as well as determining the backend architecture and endpoints that we need to support those features.

Specifically you’ll:

  • Write elegant, well-tested code in a modern technology stack
  • Participate in standups, code reviews, and retros
  • Work closely with our team to make architecture and design decisions
  • Ensure everything runs smoothly & safely in production
  • Create standards around development, code review and deployment

Our Tech Stack:

  • Rails 6.1, Postgres 13.7, React, Algolia, Typescript
  • Team size: ~20 engineers

About you:

Experiences that make you stand out:

  • You have 5+ years experience building great products in Ruby on Rails; during that time you’ve also become proficient in Javascript, ideally React (3+ years experience)
  • You are confident working across the stack, whether it’s expanding our API or enhancing the frontend
  • You are passionate about writing clean and well-thought out code
  • You want to karate kick technical debt in the chops
  • You’re comfortable writing test suites in a test-driven environment
  • You can craft a devastating SQL query to save the day when all else fails
  • You are a strong communicator and able to clearly articulate technical problems
  • You want to be an early contributor to our engineering culture and work environment

Skills that make you extraordinary:

  • Obsession with high-quality work
  • Ability to work independently and to adapt to the developing requirements of our users and market
  • Love of detailed, continuous feedback that makes the work better
  • Desire to always move fast and prioritize speed over scope
  • Passion to be an early contributor to our engineering culture and work environment
  • Hunger to build a world-changing product

Our Team:

At Almanac, we’re looking for structured thinkers full of passion, ambition, and kindness. We’d love for you apply even if your experience doesn’t precisely match the job description. Your experience, skills, and interests will help you stand out—especially if your career has taken some extraordinary twists and turns. At Almanac, we welcome people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives who aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo. Join us.
