Chowbus is a fast growing, well-funded food startup headquartered here in Chicago on a mission to help diners to discover new and exquisite dishes, and to give traditional mom and pop restaurants a fighting chance to succeed without compromising who they truly are. By building a super app, our goal is to be the one stop shop for everything related to food.
Chowbus Engineering is made up of 4 squads: Platform Operations, Delivery, Diner, and Restaurant Solutions. Each team focuses on a different aspect of Chowbus' operations and services.
What You’ll be Doing
Architecture. You should be comfortable working with your team to craft a design: choosing the appropriate technology and designing a solution that both answers the problem at hand, and stays within constraints.
Understanding and often playing a major part in the entire cycle of software consulting and delivery, from ideation, to project conception, to UX, to code, to testing, to deployment, and around again.
What You Should Already Have
Minimum 3-5 years of production experience with Ruby on Rails and building RESTful APIs.
Experience leading or managing a development team, preferably in an Agile environment
Experience with microservices architecture
Strong knowledge of HTML (we use HAML), CSS (SASS and BEM), Git (we’re on Github), and
other common web technologies and protocols.
Understanding that code is written for others to read and capable of writing highly readable, modular, clean, and testable software. You should also follow best practices, capable of recognizing and refactoring common code smell.
Understanding that specs are the foundation of an application and dedicated to test-driving development using RSpec.
Strong experience working with PostgreSQL and understand performance optimization strategies.
Understanding that every piece of code written incurs a ‘cost of carry’, and that over-engineering is the bane of all evil. You should also have experience working in teams that practice Agile.
