Vidyard is looking for an incredible talent to join our growing engineering team and play a critical role as we continue to build and improve our platform. You enjoy the challenge of optimizing SQL queries and you've experimented with NoSQL databases in the past. You have a habit of writing tests for every functionality you write and you know how to manage a large web application on Amazon EC2 and Heroku. You can even tackle front-end work with HTML, CSS and JavaScript occasionally.

If you are a generalist, who feels at ease using Ruby on Rails, APIs and Ruby Gems in order to construct the backbone of a web application - we'd love to chat!

Experience with the following technologies would be an asset:

- Ruby on Rails or other MVC web frameworks
- MySQL or other relational databases
- Redis or other NoSQL databases
- Automated testing with RSpec or similar
- Interacting with and building APIs and Ruby Gems
- Amazon EC2 and Heroku
- HTML, CSS, JavaScript
- Git & Github
- Linux

Our engineering team is composed of generalists who strive to maintain both front and back-end expertise. Postings are categorized for either section; however we strive to hire experts in both areas wherever possible.

Growth – Working alongside highly skilled individuals, you have the opportunity to make this position your own by generating and managing your own projects and watching your deliverables make a significant impact

Consumables – Free daily-catered lunches, snacks and all the tea, coffee, hot chocolate and pop you could desire
