Remote Web Developer

  • Ruby on Rails projects
  • Work from anywhere
  • Supportive team
  • Actual 40-hour work week
  • No pair programming, no managers, nothing to disrupt your efficiency
  • Few meetings (just the ones we need)

As a developer at E-accent, you’ll help build complex web applications that solve real commercial and practical problems for our clients.

All our code is peer-reviewed to ensure quality, and we take great pride in doing the best work we possibly can.

This is a full-time, remote role. We don’t believe long hours are productive – we work eight hours a day, five days a week, unless there’s a genuine emergency (which is rare). The atmosphere in our virtual office (AKA Slack chat room!) is friendly, nurturing and supportive, with no room for big egos. Your first few months on the job you'll even have a "sponsor" – another team member who can help you learn the ropes.

Skills and requirements

  • Excellent English communication skills
  • Solid Ruby on Rails skills
  • Experience with JS frameworks like React
  • Revision control (git)
  • Application deployment (Capistrano)

About E-accent

E-accent is a first-hour Ruby on Rails team with people in five countries, aiming to bring light in the darkness of corporate software. Our projects tend to be large, complex and interesting.

Our core team works in Australia, China, Croatia, Germany, the Netherlands and the United States. We are supported by trusted freelancers in the UK, the US and the Netherlands.

We were one of the first five companies in the world to adopt Ruby on Rails as our main development framework.

In 2007, we won the Netherlands E-work Award for the best distance-working organisation. We have been featured in Quote, Bizz and IT Executive.
