Senior Ruby Developer at Practice Ignition

$120k - $150k + 0.01% - 0.02% in Sydney, NSW

Job description

Practice Ignition is a platform that onboards, manages, communicates, bills and provides client insights for the professional services industry. Currently focusing on the accounting sector, Practice Ignition is seeing fast growth and is looking for talented people to join our team.


Based in the tech heart of Sydney, with strategic offices in the USA, Canada and UK, Practice Ignition has recently passed a significant paying customer milestone and late last year closed our second round of external investment from Super Angels locally and VCs abroad.


One of our long terms goals is to see Practice Ignition become the standard when it comes to interacting with your accountant or advisor. As much as we’re focused on automating administration and processes within these businesses, it’s the clients that we ultimately aim to engage.


We’re looking for smart, talented and experienced team members that can take ownership, articulate their point of view and back their opinions with a well researched and knowledgeable stance.


At the end of the day, all we ask is for people to join our team who like to have a drink to celebrate the spoils or unleash their frustration.


We’re looking for

  • Team members that can take ownership
  • Curiosity to develop knowledge of a variety of programming languages and frameworks.
  • The ability to articulate their point of view and back their opinions with a researched and knowledgeable stance.
  • Someone who can engage in robust and articulate dialogue while maintaining an open mind.
  • There’s an unshakeable desire to write testable and well tested code.
  • Not a rock star (or a ninja). Just a skilful and dependable person who recognises that there is always more to learn.
  • A sense of humour, and the ability to focus yet still have a laugh in high pressure situations.
  • Never a “fanboy”, nor someone motivated to play with the latest and greatest in production. A conservative and objective thinker who can weigh up options based on requirements, best fit and maturity of technology.

About the team

Comfortable with agile development methodologies and the ability to help scope, design and estimate granular stories. Comfortable working with distributed teams bringing together a complementary skillset.


Demonstrated ability to inject a healthy and productive tension when curating a backlog alongside a product owner, ie. the cost/benefit analysis around delivery cost vs business benefit.


Happy to work closely and pair with more junior team members as a mentor.


Tech Stack 

  • Ruby and Rails 
  • DDD architecture 
  • GraphQL 
  • RabbitMQ-based event publisher 
  • Heroku, PostgreSQL, Redis

The Package 

We pay competitive market salaries and offer equity so that you can enjoy in our success. Upon starting, you’ll be provided with your choice of development machine, a nice chair and a training / conference budget.
