In the next month or so, Dojo4 will be hiring a part to full-time Rails developer. This hire will be for a specific client project described below, however, if it’s a good fit there will very likely be other project work available, either subsequently or simultaneously, for this contractor. This contract is also a possible step toward a full-time hire by our client. Like all positions at our cooperative, you will have plenty of support in your work but will be happy to manage yourself. 

Project Description

  1. A data stream collection and management system. It collects aircraft attribute and position data from multiple sources and merges that data into a common format to generate individual aircraft flight reports.
  2. An aircraft-ecosystem master system. This is a system that is going to have authoritative data on every aircraft in the world, who is responsible for those aircraft, and the institutions that manage all the airspaces.
  3. A bill generation and payment collection system. Using the flight information for all the aircraft, and the intersection of those flight paths with the legal airspaces on the planet, it will generate per-flight, per-country bills for the responsible party of the aircraft and collect payment on those bills.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Build new features for the payment Rails app
  • Expose features as GraphQL queries/mutations and background jobs (previous Ruby+GraphQL experience not necessary)
  • Increase RSpec test coverage (previous RSpec experience not necessary)
  • Troubleshooting production issues
  • Tighten up integrations with third-party systems
  • Work on what’s interesting to you

Technologies Used

  • Ruby 2.7, Rails 6
  • PostgreSQL / PostGIS
  • Fluentd
  • GraphQL (both server and client)
  • Vue/Nuxt 2
  • Docker
  • AWS - mostly EC2, RDS, ECS, SQS, S3
  • Integrations with Auth0 and payment gateways

Contract Parameters (hours, rate, etc.)

  • 60 - 100 hours / month for a few months, at a minimum
  • $100/hour
