Great, Senior Software Engineers

While we don't have a specific engineering role open now, if you're a great engineer we're interested in hearing from you.

Portland Engineering Full-Time

We’re always looking for skilled engineers who are eager to solve problems, collaborate with team members, and work on a Rails and Angular-based SaaS application.

WorkingGroupLink is an early stage, funded, and fast-growing enterprise SaaS company, seeking engineers with a deep knowledge of Ruby or JavaScript. Our apps include our core SaaS webapp, a desktop email plugin, plus secure APIs and mobile apps for iOS, Android and Blackberry. You can also impress us with additional knowledge in React.js, Node.js, Angular 2, Cordova, OAuth/SAML, Chef, or AWS.

The team is small, nimble, highly skilled and collaborative. We are working to deliver innovative SaaS software to simplify our customers business process challenges. We practice code-based prototyping, test-driven CI, and pull request code reviews (ticket tracking, acceptance testing, etc.) to produce high-quality code and improve our products.

Our ideal candidate is an effective communicator in both technical and business process discussions. You are a self-starter with an attention to detail and the persistence to troubleshoot and solve challenging bugs. Since we are a startup, our engineers do more than just code. You also need the ability to prioritize tasks, prepare a quick spec, ask for input or help, and update ticket status on the way to building something new.

To apply for this position please send a resume, LinkedIn profile, and at least one code sample on GitHub or similar to admin [at] workinggrouplink.com (no recruiters please).
