FutureMe Jobs!

We are hiring for a few full-time roles here at FutureMe. We are are a small (and, ah-hem, quite talented!) fully remote team and can offer competitive compensation as well as the opportunity to work on a product that millions of people use and love.


Full Stack Ruby on Rails Developer (alt: Time Travel Engineer)

FutureMe is a “majestic monolith” Ruby on Rails app hosted on Heroku with PostGreSQL. Most of the UI is server-side templates, some (more soon) StimulusJS. We have about 75% test coverage and CI in place. You will be shipping code to production early and often to millions of users.

Your Background:

You are an experienced Rails generalist with ~3+ years delivering production apps with significant scale. You value the attention to detail required for great UX and maintainable CSS, and get a kick out of ensuring your SQL queries are efficiently indexed. The prospect of any downtime or regressions make you a little bit nauseous. Experience with email deliverability is a bonus because (did we mention?) we send a lot of those! You think a team of 4 is just about right for optimized delivery and are excited to work directly with UX / Marketing and obsess over our customers. You are motivated by the FutureMe vision of helping everyone in the world to think meaningfully about their desired futures.

The Deal:

We want great people, so we are flexible on the specifics. We are open to between 20 and 40 hours/week and will offer a competitive compensation package. We encourage and welcome candidates of all backgrounds located anywhere in the world, as long as you can have a few hours of daily synchronous overlap with EST (Boston) and CET (Spain).

To Apply:

Drop us a line at jobs@futureme.org and share your LinkedIn/GitHub/Resume and share some thoughts about why you think you'd be great and what you excites you about the opportunity to work on FutureMe.

You are motivated by the FutureMe vision of helping everyone in the world think meaningfully about and actualizing their desired futures.

Your Opportunity:

With an eye on SEO and other acquisition / retention tactics, build out campaigns, potentially with media partners, to help our userbase delight their future selves with clever messages from the past.

  • Engage! Collaborate with the product team to position and help drive more social engagement on FutureMe (for example: like/comment/profile, topic pages such climate change, space travel, social predictions, etc...)
