Full Stack Engineer at Fig
San Francisco, CA, US
Fig is a venture-backed company building a platform for funding and publishing independent video games and is hiring a gamer with experience as a back end engineer. This is an opportunity to join as one of the first employees at Fig, shape the way we develop software, and have fun changing the way that games get made. The first version of our platform just launched, but there's always tons of interesting work left to do!
Specifically, we are looking for someone with some or all of the following skills:

Rapid product prototyping
Ability to learn quickly and take on new challenges
Ability to write high quality code that's well tested
Comfortable writing code that safely handles money
A good understanding of CSS is a big plus
An eye for design and user experience is another big plus
Interested in really digging into performance issues, load time is important (client and server side!)
Reasons to be excited:

Own a majority of the engineering decisions and stack
Work with a small, very experienced (not our first rodeo!), and extremely productive team reporting directly to the CTO
Work with founders & CEO to determine company strategy
Meet and work with some of the world’s greatest indie game developers
Great benefits. Full medical, dental and vision
Our tech stack (familiarity with any of these is a plus but not required, we’d rather work with fast learners!):

Backend application servers in Rails 4
PostgreSQL + redis + memcached
Currently deployed to Heroku, but AWS experience would be a big plus!
Yes, we unit test :) Lots of RSpec that we run with Travis.CI
React (with Redux)
Sass using Flexbox (with a bit of Bootstrap CSS)
Some Angular code in the CMS that we're actively replacing with React
If you’re interested, please send us a link to one of your GitHub repos or a code sample that you're proud of, and let us know the most recent game you really got into. We’re looking forward to getting to know you!
