Now Hiring: Remote Senior Backend Laravel Engineer
⏰ Make a big impact at an early stage – funded and prelaunch 💪 Humble and Ambitious Team 💰 Competitive Salary, Equity, and Perks 🗺 Anywhere in Europe 🎓 Training and Development 💡 5+ Years of Experience
Rally is bringing new freedom to online merchants. Our checkout optimization platform allows merchants to take control of the most important pages of their business. We believe that when merchants control their own checkout, it leads to more freedom, more creativity, and more success.
The team is experienced in the space – our previous product processed over $2b in GMV. We’re looking for true believers to join our small team. We recently closed a round of funding from great investors, and are gearing up to launch in Q2. Join us and make a meaningful impact on the team and product.
As a senior backend engineer at Rally, you will be creating powerful, flexible, highly scalable APIs and developing various backend systems and operations. Additionally, you will architect, define and maintain our database and models, and ensure our systems can keep up their high performance and responsiveness. You will be responsible for implementing new features and integrations as well as supporting our existing functionality. You will also join us in sprint planning and retrospectives and have the opportunity to make a lasting impact on our stack and the future of ecommerce.

How We Work
Remote: We are a fully distributed team, with operations in the US and Europe. We’ll get you fully set up with a home-office stipend. For this role, we are looking for someone located in the EU timezone (CET +-2 hours is optimal)
No Crazy Hours: We’re all adults and we trust each other to manage our time appropriately. There’s no need to punch a clock or ask for permission to take off early one afternoon to go see the doctor. We look at what you accomplish, not how long you are in front of a computer. We work hard and smart, but we’re in this for the long haul.
Responsible Time Off: We want you to take time off; it makes you happier, healthier, and more productive. In fact, we have an unlimited time-off policy, plus two mandatory weeks for holiday break in December/January. It’s important you take the time you need, whether you’re caring for your health, the health of a family member, or going on vacation. (We look forward to seeing pictures of your trip in #the-pub Slack channel!) Be mindful of Black Friday through Cyber Monday. That’s our merchants’ busiest time of the year, and we need all-hands-on-deck just in case.
Grow and Learn: We aren’t satisfied with what we already know; we want to learn more and we want you to as well. Think conferences (when those are a thing again), online courses and resources, and dedicated time away to learn something new…it’s up to you and your manager. Let us know what you need.
Benefits: Insurance coverage: For our U.S. employees, we offer health, dental, and vision insurance. We cover 100% of your medical and dental premiums and 75% for vision. We also cover a percentage of the premiums for dependents. If our default plan isn’t right for you, there are other options available to fit your needs.
