Web Engineer at Ritual
Toronto, CA

In this new role at Ritual, we are looking for someone to lead our web team. As a company, we find ourselves beginning to focus more on our web products, and really want to push our web offerings to the next level. We are moving to React and Node, and creating a development environment that allows us to build products at lightning speeds. When the team is not solving complex problems and building scalable and reliable services, they’re hosting Super Smash Bros tournaments and working on side projects that turn into major features.

As a Senior Web Engineer at Ritual you will…

  • Be a strong coder; regardless of which language you use or how you learned it, we’re looking for people who can write clean, effective code
  • Enjoy collaboration with others - our work isn’t carried out in a vacuum, and everyone contributes to get the job done
  • Understand that making mistakes means you’re learning
  • Have a constant desire to grow and develop
  • Be passionate about product craftsmanship and care about great design, not only in products and their visual presentation but in your code and technical architecture as well
  • Be comfortable in a high-paced environment, and can respond to urgent requests
  • Want to work on things that make an impact on the world

We’re looking for a Senior Web Engineer that has…

  • Extensive experience with React and Node, with 5+ years of total engineering experience
  • A solid foundation in computer science, with strong competencies in API design, and consumer web application architecture
  • Experience leading projects, people or teams
  • Enthusiasm for solving interesting problems and a willingness to take on new product features
  • Interest in working on a rapidly changing, ever-evolving system
  • BS/MS in Computer Science or equivalent (started or completed PhD a plus)

Bonus points if you have

  • Coding skills in Java 
  • AppEngine, GKE or both
  • GraphQL

What we offer:

  • Contribute to a lifestyle-changing consumer product used worldwide
  • Ritual credits to spend on lunch and coffee at local spots
  • Healthcare coverage from day one, and a flexible vacation policy (Need time? Take time)
  • Equity in the business - ownership is a key value at Ritual and we want you to share in our long-term success
  • The good stuff to help you grow in your career with us: performance reviews, professional development conferences, product reviews with the founders
  • The tools you need to get the job done, like that really specific keyboard set up that lets you code faster than Usain Bolt runs
