Job Description


Neighborland is a platform for residents to connect, share insights, and take action in their neighborhoods. We are changing the relationship between residents and their cities by simplifying collaboration, participation, and engagement.

We’re looking for an accomplished software engineer to join our team either in San Francisco or Boulder. We are an engineering and design-driven team and work in 2-week sprints with daily stand-ups. We practice TDD and pair often. Major pieces of our stack are: Ruby, Rails, Javascript, Postgres, Ubuntu, AWS, Memcached, and Redis. We relentlessly refactor both our process and our code to use the best tools available.

Here are some requirements for this Principal level position:

  • 5 years consumer web development experience
  • Expertise in our current technologies (Ruby, Rails, Javascript, Postgres)
  • Thorough knowledge of application modeling, SQL and NoSql data stores, linux, web servers, and web systems architecture
  • BS or MS degree in Computer Science
  • Genuinely nice person

Compensation includes competitive salary, generous equity package, unlimited vacation, and great benefits.
