Why Privy Engineering:
We're tackling interesting engineering and scaling problems managing high data volumes and the unique challenges of working alongside tens of thousands of unique store configurations.
Our teams are highly autonomous: we organize into small (3-5 engineer) teams working with designers and product managers to make rapid and continuous progress every day.
Our test suite is highly parallelized and completes in just 6 minutes, and every merge to the main branch is automatically built, tested, and deployed to production.
We love to stay up to date and use modern versions of modern frameworks: Rails 6.1+, and React 16.13+.
Attentive is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We’re committed to diversity and maintaining a work environment that is free from harassment and discrimination. We’re committed to them because our core values demand it - values like Integrity First, Listening & Cultivating Discussion, and Default to Action. We believe in embracing “self” and that our true strength lies in the diversity of our employees. For this reason, applicants from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply, and will not be discriminated against on the basis of any protected status under federal, state, or local law.
