About Ticketsolve
Ticketsolve is a web based online and box-office ticketing platform. We currently have over 290 clients based throughout UK and Ireland. These clients are a mixture of Theatres, Arts, Festivals and specialty offerings such as Ice Skating and Christmas attractions. We are a consistently profitable company with healthy year on year growth. The new features and abilities we are adding to Ticketsolve puts in a place to deliver strong growth in the coming years.

Introduction
We are currently going through a very exciting evolution of our platform. We are moving from a traditional RoR architecture to a modern "single page application", exposing our application as a set of API's consumed by Ember to provide a rich interactive experience.

We have migrated our customer facing ticket selling application to Ember and our ticket scanning application to Ember, with great success. We are currently working on rebuilding the backend of our platform with the present focus been on our "Point of Sale". We are now looking to add to our team to accelerate the creation and rollout of this change across the remainder of our platform. This covers the CRM, reporting/analytics and configurations aspects of our backend.

To do this we are looking to hire new people to join our team. Ideally this person will have Ember experience. However, we are also interested in talking to people with a strong javascript background and background with other similar frameworks. In terms of experience we are open to both beginner and experienced developers. Where necessary we will put in place a bootstrap to help people come up to speed on Ember.

Skills & Requirements
- 2+ years experience developing web applications
- Experience with programming Javascript required with role focused on Ember based development
- Ruby/Rails experience a bonus but not strictly necessary
- Strong understanding of front-end technologies: JavaScript, HTML5, SASS, Ember preferred, but not required 
- Strong programming skills with focus on clean design, well refactored code and automated testing  
- Comfortable working as part of a remote team 

Technologies we use
- Ruby on Rails is our primary server framework evolving towards pure API server
- Ember is our primary front end development framework
- JSONAPI::Resources, http://jsonapi-resources.com/, is how we are building our API’s
- MySQL / Redis / Elastic are our primary storage engines
- All our servers are Ubuntu based managed through CHEF
- Deployed on AWS using terraform for managing infrastructure
- GitHub for source code management and process support
- Travis for continuous integration

How we work
We run a lightweight process that focuses on feature based delivery on a weekly basis. Our co-ordination and communication is largely through daily 'catch-up meetings' and use of appropriate tools such as Trello for backlog management, Slack for communication and Git(GitHub) for source control and feature deployment through PR's and Milestones.

From a coding perspective we place a strong emphasis on clean, minimal, well refactored code backed up by strong suite of automated tests. We make use of peer review for all design and development work.

In general we strive for an approach that empowers and trusts individuals to 'do the right thing' and as a team we try and keep each other true to this.

Remote working
Our development team works as a remote team with members in Berlin, Malmö, Barcelona, Singapore and Taiwan. Our wider organisation has people based in United Kingdom and Dublin. Dublin is our headquarters and main office space - with core Support team and Sales and Marketing team.

Remote working has become part of our company DNA. We believe that it offers a lot of advantages to both Ticketsolve and employees. We expect that our new hires will likely be remote working. This means that you should be comfortable working as part of a remote team. If this is new to you, don't worry, it was for us at the beginning as well. We now have lots of experience helping people settle in - so keep an open mind and imagine a working day with no daily commute.

Important to note that timezones are a consideration for us with remote working. Our experience is that European and Asian time zones are preferable, as it allows for collaboration at reasonable times. 

Recruitment process
We are initially looking for resumes and portfolio examples of your work e.g. GitHub repositories, blog articles, etc. If you do not have anything suitable we can provide a problem piece to work together on. Please submit resumes to shanly@ticketsolve.com with subject "Job Application".

From there we filter down and do a series of remote interviews. These are often 'work' focused i.e. looking at code together, pair programming for example. Our preference is for candidates to talk to as much of the team as possible so that we, team and candidate, can make the best decision possible. If appropriate and makes sense we will also look at facilitating face to face meetings as well.

After this stage we will be in a position to make a formal offer.
