Full-Stack Developer

Founded in 2010, Quire has changed the way technical reports are written and we are looking for a ­­Full-stack Developer to Join our Growing Company!

Quire (openquire.com) is a cloud-based, technical report-writing platform built to disrupt and replace other conventional applications such as MS Word and Excel. By providing a toolkit of building blocks to reconstruct reports, Quire optimizes writing, reviewing and delivery processes, all while ensuring the highest levels of accuracy and consistency. Our technical consulting clients indicate Quire cuts their report writing time by 25-35%. Additionally, Quire reports are accessed from anywhere, working seamlessly with client’s internal systems including collaborative editing, workflow tracking, mobile data collection, and big data capabilities.

We are continually adding new features, integrations and applications!

Headquartered in the Philadelphia metro area of Doylestown, PA, we have achieved our success by building a collaborative team of creative, talented people located in Doylestown, Boston, Albany, Austin, and San Francisco. We are committed to the continual improvement of our products, extraordinary customer satisfaction and to fostering an innovative, life-friendly work environment.

Position overview

We are adding a Full-stack Developer to work with our design, development, support, and product management team. Our developers apply their knowledge and skills to build efficient and maintainable solutions to address customer needs and create innovative enhancements which are deployed to our cloud infrastructure on a regular basis. At Quire, we employ an iterative development approach, always looking to improve the experience our customers receive when they engage with our platform. 

As a Quire Full-stack Developer, you will spend time heads-down in Ruby or cranking out some Javascript code. We are seeking someone with a solid understanding of the complete request/response loop to bring that unique perspective on where problems can arise. In this role, you may be given some shiny new feature to build, or you may get an interesting issue that will challenge your debugging and sleuthing techniques!  As part of building a platform, you will need to add to our ever-growing API toolset per client demands.

Essential Functions

General

You will use git every day, and must be familiar with its basic set of commands, and understand branches and the value of “commit and push”.

Back-end

  • Our data is stored in AWS Aurora; you will need to know SQL and have a basic understanding of how to analyze and optimize query performance. 
  • We also use Redis for caching lots of data and expensive computations. You must have some knowledge of key/value stores.
  • Quire performs a lot of work asynchronously using Sidekiq and Amazon SQS. You should have experience with and knowledge of distributed systems and message queues to work.

  • Excellent communication skills – written, oral and listening
