Sparkle CMS is a suite of tools that healthcare systems use to help patients find care. It is important work, and we believe in what we do. We are a very lean crew, with fewer than twenty in our all-remote staff, but we are growing quickly. Our product is entirely market-driven, meaning that every feature we build and every deployment we release has real-world users. We are accountable to our product’s users, the healthcare systems and their patients.
Working With Sparkle
We’ve described ourselves as a self-organizing team that moves quickly together and contributes across the stack as needed (regardless of specialized knowledge or experience). We want this to remain true even as we add new team members.
Ruby on Rails developer.
We are hiring a Ruby on Rails developer. We’re looking for someone with 3-7 years of experience working with Ruby and/or Rails.
Our team of under twenty works with near autonomy toward shared goals. We don’t micro-manage. Our developers are trusted to manage their own day, and we value good results over process. We place a high value on transparency and collaboration.
This is initially a full-time remote contract position with an option of moving to a full-time payroll status. You will be working directly on products that help to connect patients to the care that they need. We have an extensive 2021 roadmap of new feature development.
