Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well. 

I just thought I’d let you all know that FlexMR are looking for a Backend Rails Developer with at least 2 years of professional experience to join our dynamic team. 

I have been at FlexMR for 18 months now and it is a great and fun place to work and I really enjoy it here. There is a real commitment to a good work life balance and no politics or other nonsense. Everything is very organised and extremely well run which frees me up to do my job without  having to deal with a load of silliness and pointless admin. 

We are a small team of friendly, approachable, highly skilled and experienced developers.
The stack is an RoR monolith and MySQL DB (there are a couple of smaller microservices in RoR as well) with a mix of erb/haml and React on the frontend.

  • The role is fully remote (we only require attendance twice annually at the office in the Lake District)  but you must be a resident of the UK and legally entitled to work in the UK

  • Pays £45k – £55k

  • Offers flexible working

  • Hardware budget


  • At least 2 years of professional experience with Ruby on Rails

  • Experience of working with relational databases such as MySQL or Postgres

  • Using Git as part of a team, including use of GitHub/GitLab

  • Understanding of continuous integration (for example CircleCI, Travis or Jenkins)

  • Proficient in secure coding principles and software best practices

  • Self-motivated and self-managing, with strong organisational skills

  • Demonstrable experience of working both independently and as part of a small team

  • Excellent communication skills

  • Experience in agile software development

  • Resident of the UK and legally entitled to work in the UK

Nice to Haves

  • Experience of Docker

  • Experience of working within a remote team

  • Familiarity with core AWS components, e.g. EC2, RDS, S3 and CloudWatch
