Remote Ruby on Rails Developer

Toughbyte is building a tech recruitment platform that helps companies and developers find each other. Our main advantage is the ability to combine automation with a personalized approach to every candidate and client, which is enabled by our distributed team of recruiters. Since 2015, we've expanded to eight countries and seen growth of up to 80% each year. We work remotely in small autonomous teams and have an open & supportive company culture.
We're looking for Ruby developers to join our team. Since we have a structured onboarding process and an established curriculum, we are ready to consider candidates with no prior work experience and teach them everything we know.

We use the latest versions of libraries, Kanban, GitHub flow, CI/CD and contribute to open source.
