You LOVE programming. Been doing it for a long time. Can’t help build projects in your spare time.
You LOVE Ruby on Rails. Yeah, it’s not the most popular thing out there, but it fits your brain like a hand in a glove. Custom DSLs, ultra-flexible, great library. It just makes you happy.
Speaking of, you LOVE simplicity. Elegantly simple is your middle name. you’re not satisfied until it has that feel, that smell of elegant simplicity. You’re not afraid to push back on requirements & be creative in coming up with a better, simpler way.
You’re confident in yourself & your abilities. You know what great looks like & you’re not easily satisfied with your own work. You’re not afraid to speak what’s on your mind.
You thrive in an organized and focused environment where decisions are made swiftly and the vision is clear. You’re autonomous, and a great team player, able to take direction and build off of it.
What you DON’T love is red tape, politics, and dumb, complicated solutions just because no one had the courage to do better and stand up for their convictions.
If this is you, apply immediately!

What sets Simplero apart
- No VCs. No outside funding. No exit strategy. We do it because we love it today, and want to continue doing this in perpetuity, not because we hope to make out like bandits in the future.

- We do things differently from other companies. You'll see.
What we absolutely require
I'll be honest. It's a big project with lots of moving parts, and we move fast (like a bullet train).
This job is not for everyone. We have high standards and communicate clearly. You’ll be held accountable for your work and we care about you as a person. Driven, ambitious, caring, and clear communicators fit well with us. If you think you'd fit in, get in touch.
