Welcome to Mitchell Stores

We're Mitchells Stores, a family-owned luxury retailer renown for top-of-its-class customer service, with stores in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Portland, Seattle, Greenwich, and Westport, Connecticut, and we're looking for a mid-to-senior-level full-stack or back-end Ruby on Rails developer.

You'll join our growing team at our headquarters in Westport developing our suite of internal and customer-facing web applications, dedicated to crafting a superb online customer experience and providing our amazing sales associates with tools to better assist their clients.

What you'll do:

  • Develop and test features for our customers, sales associates, and customer service team for our ecommerce platform built on Spree and Rails
  • Work collaboratively with the development team and the executive team to help identify new development priorities, improvements, and opportunities for growth
  • Help us accomplish our goal to be the best specialty store in the world by making our customers feel great

What you'll need to know:

  • Ruby and Rails (3+ years in a professional team environment)
  • SQL databases, preferably Postgres (3+ years)
  • writing tests with RSpec
  • Version control, preferably Git

Even better, you'll know a bit about one or more of these:

  • the Spree Commerce framework
  • searching with Solr and Lucene
  • running cloud applications on Heroku
  • Amazon Web Services

Why you should apply:

  • You prefer engaging with a small, dynamic team and being involved in all phases of development.
  • You'd like to join a small but very successful company with annual sales in excess of $150 million.
  • You want to work in a welcoming, family-friendly, non-corporate atmosphere that moves fast and isn't bound by a rigid corporate structure.
