Reverb is a leading online marketplace for buying and selling new, used, and vintage musical instruments. Since launching in 2013, Reverb has grown into a vibrant community of buyers and sellers all over the world. By focusing on inspiring content, price transparency, musician-focused eCommerce tools, a music-savvy customer service team, and more, Reverb has created an online destination where the global music community can connect over the perfect piece of music gear.
When it comes to engineering, we build primarily in Ruby/Rails, Python, Go and React, but we value identifying the right language/framework for the job. We believe in fast development cycles, clean architecture, test driven code, fast specs, and continuous deployment.
Everyone at Reverb takes creative initiative, helps set their own priorities, and comes up with new ways to grow the business. Our software engineers take pride in crafting great software but take even more pride in product ownership, taking ideas from concept to release and beyond. 
Here are the qualities we look for in our potential hires:
Product ownership – we are not just software engineers and designers. At Reverb, you’ll be expected to track the performance of features you release, talk to stakeholders, fix bugs, and understand your impact on the business.
Self-motivation - taking initiative to just get things done. Have an idea? Make a pitch and have your idea turned into reality.

Responsibilities:
  • Building the Reverb core Rails app and refactoring existing code to higher quality standards.
  • Developing public facing and internal APIs using gRPC and JSON
  • Having a deep understanding of your chosen languages and frameworks, enough to understand and make tradeoffs.
  • Participating in pairing sessions, code reviews, and researching things independently.
  • Being more than an engineer - a product owner who wants to interact with customers, break down large problems, help set your own priorities, and follow up on the performance of your features to know how they impact customers directly.

Requirements:
  • Professional experience with React, Ruby 2, Rails 5 or other applicable web frameworks and Postgres or other RDBMS.
  • Deep expertise of your chosen languages and frameworks, but curiosity and ability to ramp up on new technologies quickly when called for.
  • Experience with unit testing (whether TDD, BDD, or spike it first and test it later) and a desire to push everyone to do better.
  • Great communication skills and the desire to collaborate across departments and with customers.
  • Experience with ElasticSearch, Redis, Docker - huge pluses.

What you'll get:
To complement our competitive compensation and equity plans, we offer: 
  • No-bureaucracy environment where ownership and initiative are valued.
  • Health insurance and a healthy work environment.
  • 401k with company match.
  • Paid parental leave.
  • Flexible vacation and sick days.
  • Pre-tax commuter benefits.
