Ruby/React Developer - Full Stack

Laborocity - Radnor, PA


Company Introduction

Laborocity is a rapidly growing startup company that matches high-quality workers with businesses that need temporary help. Our technology team is charged with building a best-in-class platform to manage the job postings, acceptance, and payments from our customers to our Doers. Additionally, where it makes more sense to buy rather than build, our development team will be responsible for leveraging 3rd party APIs to connect our data flows with SaaS systems.

Job Description

We are looking for a full stack web developer with experience writing Ruby on Rails and JavaScript code (specifically proficiency with React.js) to join our growing team. You will own the continued development of our web application, the services tier, and the underlying datastore.

A commitment to collaborative problem solving, sophisticated design, and quality product is of paramount importance.

  • Developing new user-facing features using React.js
  • Building reusable components and front-end libraries for future use
  • Translating designs and wireframes into high-quality code
  • Optimizing components for maximum performance across a vast array of web-capable devices and browsers
  • Integration of user-facing elements with server-side logic
  • Identify bottlenecks and bugs, and devise solutions to these problems
  • Help maintain code quality, organization, and automation


  • Experience with Ruby on Rails, along with other common libraries such as RSpec and Resque
  • Familiarity with Behavior Driven and Test Driven development
  • Good understanding of the syntax of Ruby and its nuances
  • Strong proficiency in JavaScript, including DOM manipulation and the JavaScript object model
