Promoboxx: Senior Software Engineer
500 Harrison Ave Studio 3R
Boston, MA 02118

About the Team

We’re a diverse, fun loving group of product managers, designers, and engineers who take pride in their work and are always striving to improve.  

Our current process is in the neighborhood of Scrumban -- two week sprints, weekly releases, no scrum master, pull from the top of the sprint backlog, daily standup at 11:30, post-sprint retros.  

We do our best to minimize context switching.  Wednesdays are meeting-free and recurring meetings are right before or after lunch.  Our hours are flexible and we have top notch remote employee supportfor those times you’d rather WFH.  

Our primary stack consists of Ruby and JavaScript, using Rails API, Angular, and Vue.js, backed by MySQL, ElasticSearch, MemCache, and Redis, running on AWS.  Learn more about our stack on StackShare.
