Experienced Ruby Developer

Headquarters: Ghent, Belgium

We are a mostly remote team of six Ruby developers building an awesome Ruby application.

If you’re any good at Ruby, the chance that you’re fiddling your thumbs at home, anxiously refreshing your inbox 20 times a minute hoping for a job offer, is rather slim.

We know how it is.

Which is why we’ll try to sell ourselves to you here.

Ahum. Here it comes.

What makes the six-people dev team at Silverfin special?

First of all, we build a hell of a product. Just to give you a sense of the scale, our largest table has 2B rows.  We don’t just build it for the sake of it. Silverfin solves a very real problem: it automates and improves a large chunk of the repetitive tasks accountants spend their time on.

Most of us work remote, in France, Lithuania, Slovakia and Brazil. Without Slack we’d be lonely, now we just zap in and out of the zone as we wish. We’d be really happy to welcome you in our #dev channel – mind you, we make sure regularly get to see each other IRL too. Twice a year we fly the team together.

If this sounds good, here’s the bit about the job, and why it’s so challenging: some say we’re dragging accountants screaming and kicking into the 21st century, but we’re actually trying to keep that kicking and screaming to a bare minimum.

Your job

You’ll be working on both backend and frontend, with a healthy mix of ruby, coffeescript, slim,… You’ll get features to develop independently with the occasional bug fixes. You’ll be writing both integration and unit tests for these features and participate in our peer code reviews.


Send your motivation to ruby@getsilverfin.com including why Silverfin would be the perfect fit for you. Use the sentence “I’ve read the job description” in the subject line, because, you know why.
