Ruby Developer – OraHQ – Auckland

Be part of the platform revolution that’s helping Kiwi businesses achieve their dreams.

This is not a cult… we promise. But we are inviting you to join a revolution.

We’re looking for an awesome Ruby Dev to join our amazing and talented team here at Ora.*

Ora is a unique SaaS platform and professional marketing service that really is unlike any other. Our goal is to help Kiwi businesses achieve their dreams, and the ways in which we do that are constantly evolving.

It’s a pretty exciting world here at the cutting edge of marketing and business growth so you’ll need to be driven and flexible to keep up. Your hard work will be always be rewarded though – we offer a competitive compensation package and hugely supportive environment with lots of room for development.

Working at Ora is really something special. The hectic pace around here means we’ve all gone a little crazy (in a good way) and bonded through the madness. We let loose with ping pong duels (yes, we have a table), dress up parties and regular Friday night drinks.

No one has spontaneously combusted yet, and office exorcisms are at an all time low!

Be sure to include a cover letter and let your personality shine through. We’re not looking to replace our staff with robots for at least another 2.5 years.
