About You


You love building great software. Your work could be supporting new feature development, migrating existing features, or creating APIs. You'll have a primary focus on backend development, though may need to jump into the frontend from time to time. 


Our client’s tech stack is Ruby for the Back end, Javascript for the Front end and AWS for deployment. We use modern tools, which means you’ll have the opportunity to work with technologies like Webpack, Redux, Apollo, Styled Components, AWS and other cloud platforms, and much more. 


You have worked with teams before on large and demonstrable projects. You bring strong experience on the backend development in Ruby, utilizing Ruby on Rails. You have a strong grasp of HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. First-hand experience working with Ruby on Rails is a must. And you bring experience using iterative and incremental methods and TDD and/or BDD.


You bring knowledge working with MySQL, Postgres, or MSSQL. You understand Agile software development and DevOps practices, and can work closely with QA teams to optimize your code. 


You relish creating high quality code from the comfort of your own home. Your engineering projects will focus on understanding customers' needs and translating those needs from product specifications into functional, production ready code. You'll have the opportunity to ship code daily that will be used by customers.


You love learning. Engineering is an ever-evolving world. You enjoy playing with new tech and exploring areas that you might not have experience with yet.  You are self-driven, self-learner willing to share knowledge and participate actively in your community.


Having overlap with your team is critical when working in a global remote team. Modus requires all team members to overlap with EST morning hours daily. In addition, reliable high speed internet is a must.


Things You Might Do


Modus is a fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:



  • Give back to the community via open source and blog posts

  • Travel and meet great people- as part of our remote-first lifestyle, it's important that we come together as needed to work together, meet each other in person and have fun together. Please keep that in mind when you apply.

  • Teach and be taught: Modus creates active teams that work in internal and external projects together, giving opportunities to stay relevant with the latest technologies and learning from experts worldwide

  • Interact directly with internal and external clients to represent Modus and its values
