Rails Developer

This position has been filled, but we are always looking for good developers. Please send a copy of your CV to


Location: Cork, Ireland

WorkCompass is seeking a Rails Developer to help drive its next phase of development.

WorkCompass is an alternative to the universally-hated annual performance review which destroys motivation, stifles creativity and actually reduces individual, group and business performance.

It’s an online performance collaboration platform that allows managers and their staff to continuously set goals together, monitor progress, record feedback and surface the issues affecting motivation.

This role is ideal for a developer wishing to take the next step in their career, sidestep the corporate ladder and help shape a growing startup.

So if you aspire to build something you can be proud of and are willing to work hard to get there, this may be for you.

This is a unique opportunity to shape a product, not just maintain one!

Your background:

  • You have at least 2 years industry experience in software development.
  • You have some experience with Ruby on Rails and modern JavaScript (or are willing to be trained up).
  • You have had some exposure to modern software engineering practices including test-driven development, continuous integration, and agile development.
  • You are the sort of person who fixes things when they see they are broken and are willing to take ownership of projects.
  • You communicate clearly, with both technical and non-technical colleagues.
  • You care about user experience and understand the importance of making a product a joy to use!

The above description should be taken as a guide. If you believe that you have what it takes to help us build WorkCompass, then we want to talk to you!

We believe building a great team requires cultivating a culture of learning and we will look to do that in any way we can – be that paying for you to attend conferences, giving you space to work with interesting technologies or helping you contribute back to the development community.

The salary and benefits are negotiable and competitive. The successful candidate must have the legal right to work in Ireland (we unfortunately cannot sponsor visas).

Drop an email to with a short note on why you are interested in the position and attach a copy of your CV (and any other interesting links, projects, portfolios etc.).

We are not looking for help from recruitment agencies or outsourcing companies for this role.
