Open to all applicants globally!

Memberful is reliable membership software for independent publishers, educators, and creators. We recently joined Patreon, and we're excited to continue expanding our team.

What we're looking for

It's fun and rewarding to work with people who are enthusiastic and get stuff done.

What you’ll work on

Our Ruby on Rails application runs on Heroku, and is used by well over hundred thousand people. Because we’re a small team, your work will be both demanding and multidisciplinary:

  • Fixing routine bugs that come up from time to time.
  • Planning and shipping new features.
  • Ensuring the service is fast and reliable.
  • Responding to any overly technical customer support questions.
  • Periodically on-call (all engineers rotate based on time zone and availability) for emergencies.

Some of the tools we use: Basecamp, Github, Heroku, Stripe, Librato, Circle CI, Postmark, Papertrail, Slack, Intercom. 

Experience

At Memberful, we're a self managed team. We don't require heavy direction or daily check-ins. This means you'll come up with your own goals and execute them. You'll discover, plan, and see things through from start to finish. This job is for you if:

  • You’re enthusiastic about life and work on a daily basis.
  • You embrace responsibility and new challenges.
  • You care deeply about form and function.
  • You look for opportunities to improve process.
  • You thrive on organization and planning.
  • You do what it takes to get things done on time.
  • You have experience working remotely and enjoy it.
  • You recognize it's about building a great product, and therefore embrace discussion and criticism of ideas.
  • You don't like working with complainers or blamers.
  • You don't claim to be an expert at everything, but you show a strong desire to learn new things and continually get better.
  • You don’t just report the problem, you present a plan for fixing it.

You should be hungry and excited to take on real responsibility and work hard on useful software with real paying customers.

Salary and Perks

You should have demonstrated Ruby programming ability and experience with production Rails applications. We’re looking for someone with a strong track record of shipping solid work on a real product. Experience with applications hosted on Heroku is a bonus. 

  • Competitive salary based on experience.
  • Work remotely from anywhere in the world.
  • Flexible vacation. Take it when you need it.
  • Health insurance if you're in the United States.
