  • Experience with MVC frameworks such as Rails, Django, Pyramid, etc.

  • SQL database experience (PostgreSQL, MySQL, SQLite).

  • Experience with deployments to Heroku, AWS, or similar.

  • Experience balancing swift and long-term code maintainability.

Helpful - but not required, skills:

  • Deep expertise with Ruby/Ruby on Rails.

  • Experience with Postgres database administration.

  • Shipped code that has supported tens of thousands of users, including enterprise/business customers.

  • Operations experience and how it pertains to site reliability/speed.

  • Experience working on a fundraising/crowdfunding platform.

  • Experience working on a fintech or payments technology product.

  • A good eye for intuitive, user-friendly front end design.
