Job Description

Apptegy is an education technology company based in Little Rock, Arkansas. We are looking for an experienced Ruby on Rails developer who can help us scale our products to schools across the country. 

Our mission:

Apptegy’s mission is to help school leaders share the story of every student. Amazing moments are happening in school districts, but those moments rarely become stories that reach the community. We build technology - such as mobile apps, websites, and a publishing platform - to make it easy to share those positive stories with the world.

Our unique value is with our publishing platform, Thrillshare, that allows schools to update all of their online communication from one place. Schools can write a message once, and Thrillshare automatically updates their iPhone app, Android app, website, Twitter, Facebook, text messages, and voice calls. We help schools communicate more while working less.

Position Description:

Because Thrillshare integrates with so many platforms and has a diverse set of end users, there are a variety of technical challenges and opportunities to work on. We are looking for a developer who has a minimum of three years working experience coding in Ruby on Rails. In a fast past startup environment like this, you will be pushing code regularly and seeing the tangible results of your work on a daily basis.

Essential functions of position:

  • Write clean, maintainable, and efficient code
  • Collaborate on all aspects of application design and development
  • Make suggestions, ask questions, and always push the limits of the rest of the team
  • Always keep the user in mind


  • 3 years of professional experience working in Ruby on Rails
  • Passion for developing functional and beautiful web applications
  • Demonstrable knowledge of front-end technologies such as JavaScript, CoffeeScript, JQuery, HTML, CSS and Sass
  • Experience developing highly interactive applications for many different types of users
  • Passion for writing great, simple, clean, and efficient code (and tests to go with it!)
  • Interested in developers of all skill levels and experience
  • Working knowledge of Linux and relational databases (we use PostgreSQL)

Nice to Have

  • BS degree in Computer Science, Engineering or a related subject
  • Experience related to:
    • Building API's for mobile applications
    • Using many different third-party services and gems
    • Any DevOps experience a plus, but not required

Salary, benefits, and why you’ll love working at Apptegy:

  • Competitive Salary
  • Health insurance, vision, and dental 
  • Retirement investment matching
  • Flexible paid time off policy
  • Work with great people in a fun environment
  • Be a part of a team that is transforming the way schools engage their communities!
