Principal Ruby on Rails Software Developer - Remote

Remote (United States) +1

Join a team dedicated to creating products people love as a Remote Principal Ruby on Rails Software Developer. The Principal Ruby on Rails Software Developer role at thoughtbot mentors other thoughtbot developers and contributes to the development practices of thoughtbot and our community while working on client projects, but is a non-management position.

It is ideal for people who have made significant contributions to the Ruby on Rails development community and want to continue to do so without having to take on the responsibility of directly managing other developers.

You’ll work directly with clients on projects as a Principal Ruby on Rails Software Developer, leading by example with your communication and advocating for how we work as consultants, especially in difficult situations. You’ll partner closely with product managers, designers, developers, and clients to help solve problems.

You’ll deliver high-quality, well-tested software, mentor both client and thoughtbot engineering teams in software best practices, and advise on product prioritization, agile process, team culture, and communication.

During investment time, you'll contribute to the broader tech community, thoughtbot, and yourself. The majority of thoughtbot's open-source work and blog content is the result of investment time.

This is a remote position on the Boost team, which focuses on embedding with technical teams to address technical debt, implement process improvements, and mentor and upskill client teams.

thoughtbot is a remote company. Because we're looking for teammates who overlap with our clients' teams working hours, this is a remote position available to anyone throughout the Americas (UTC-3 through UTC-10).


Salary and benefits vary by location and country. The US salary range for this role is $161,000.00-$189,000.00
