In short

Our Direct to Consumer business is performing and growing strongly, which is why we are looking for a Fullstack Ruby Engineer to scale On’s online business to the next level. As an experienced engineer, you will be responsible to build, deploy, test and operate our digital infrastructure. You will implement processes to ensure scalability, security and performance. The technical stack of On Digital leverages the Ruby eco-system, and the team is in the process of migrating to a modular architecture where they extract services and build separate frontend applications using Vue/Nuxt. You will be sitting in our office in Zurich or Berlin and collaborate closely with the cross-functional Digital teams in both locations. 

Your Mission

  • With the engineering team, you will own the architecture and technical infrastructure that scales for millions of users across the globe

  • Leverage best in class engineering practices including Continuous Integration and Deployment, Code reviews and high test coverage

  • Evolve the architecture of the system by collaborating with other engineers

  • Deliver value with your solutions to meet both technical and consumer needs

  • Communicate technical design and decisions effectively through verbal and written communication

  • You are comfortable using containerized workloads and clusters like Kubernetes

What to expect

We want to set everyone up for success, so here’s the lowdown on how we hire. Our process is a two-way street – bringing you into our culture, while helping us learn how you think.

Our full process can last about eight weeks from application to offer, because we care about getting it right. These steps explain how we usually do things.

Before you get started, feel free to consider if you want to work with us. Strange question? Well, we give people a lot of space to navigate their day-to-day and that style isn't for everyone. We want you to be passionate about what you do and be sure this is the right fit. Because when skills and passion combine – it creates that 'Wow' moment.
