Full Time  Remote
Ruby on Rails Software Engineer

Groundfloor Atlanta, GA, United States Full Time

GROUNDFLOOR is looking for Ruby on Rails Software Engineers to join our team of insanely smart and just gosh-darn-like-able engineers. The ideal person for this role enjoys automating business processes, architecting interactions with third-party services, writing tests to ensure the reliability and robustness of our web applications. The position will primarily be focused on performing backend work, with DevOps mixed in from time to time.

We're looking for an engineer who wants to get deep into the guts of our application stack and add scalable features that support our business processes, use 3rd party APIs to automate the boring out-of-work, and capture data submitted by our users for processing.

Groundfloor has been around for about 7 years and is well past the roller coaster ride of an early-stage startup. We have real products that are making a big difference in the lives of small investors. Our loans help small real estate investors improve neighborhoods all over the country. Our investment products help everyday people achieve returns of over 10%.
GROUNDFLOOR is a remote-friendly, hyper-growth, wealth-tech company based out of Atlanta. We value vulnerable high-quality/low-ego collaboration. If that sounds good to you, join us!



  • We work mostly remotely, but try to get together in person several times a year
  • We have retros every week and seek to continually improve our work
  • We love to code and try to keep meetings to a minimum
  • We help each other out, mentor junior developers, and strive to be a fun place to work
  • We invest in automated testing, DevOps, CI & CD to minimize repetitive work
  • Long hours and crunch time are considered a failure of process, not an accomplishment to be celebrated


  • Understand that programming languages are tools, not ideologies, and are comfortable working in the right one for the task at hand (we use Ruby, Javascript/Vue)
  • You enjoy working with people, solving prioritization and resourcing issues, and thinking about the big picture
  • Agile, proactive, comfortable working with ambiguous specifications and can prioritize on the fly
  • Experience translating product requirements into design specifications
  • Interested in owning a large portion of a codebase
  • You have experience with Ruby and/or Ruby on Rails
  • You have experience with testing and automation
  • Passionate about building great software that makes an impact on people's lives


  • Demonstrated ability to work with a back end language solving real business problems
  • You have a technical background and a BS or MS in a computer-related or hard science field
  • Familiarity with Postgres, through active record, sequel or sql
  • 3+ years experience performing back end programming tasks


We value our employees’ time and efforts. Our commitment to your success is enhanced by our competitive compensation and extensive benefits package including paid time off, medical, dental, and vision benefits, potential equity for strong candidates, and future growth opportunities within the company. Plus, we work to maintain the best possible environment for our employees, where people can learn and grow with the company. We strive to provide a collaborative, creative environment where each person feels encouraged to contribute to our processes, decisions, planning, and culture.

Since its launch in 2013, participants in GROUNDFLOOR’s real estate loans have earned annualized returns averaging 10 to 12 percent in a 6 to 12-month timeframe. No prior real estate knowledge is needed, and the $10 minimum is intentionally a low barrier to entry to give everyone the ability to build wealth in real estate. To date, GROUNDFLOOR remains the only platform offering direct participation in individual real estate investments to all on a broad scale, regardless of income or net worth.
