Do you want to work on a high volume server-side API that serves hundreds of requests per second? Are you excited about helping people and businesses collaborate more efficiently by building cutting edge tools for search and collaboration?


If so, we’d like you to learn about Files.com!


A Files.com, we’re building a cloud storage service that challenges the status quo through many unique features that really help people and businesses boost their productivity.


Our primary app and API is primarily written in Ruby on Rails (though we use Grape for APIs, not ActionController, and we don’t use Rails views at all). We have additional backend services written in Ruby, have built our own version of Resque, and heavily use things like Redis and Elasticsearch.


We are looking for Rubyists with strong backgrounds in data structures, algorithms, and scaling to join our team and help us build features into our already great app.


About the Role


As a Server-side Developer at Files.com, you will take the lead on helping build cutting edge features into the Files.com product that drive value for the 1,700 business that use our platform for collaboration.


Our API receives hundreds of requests per second and is used by both internal and external developers.


Here are some examples of projects that our Server-side Developers will be tackling in the next 6-12 months:



Additionally, you’ll contribute to our ongoing projects for improving security, monitoring, and performance.
