Our engineering team writes world-class code that makes a significant, lasting impact in people's lives.

We serve APIs and web content using Ruby on Rails.

As a group, we try to be thoughtful about the tech we employ and strive to use the right tool for the job. We are passionate about our mission and aim to make the world a better place.

This role provides opportunities for growth, including technical leadership. You will be expected to procure a comprehensive understanding of all production systems at Cognoa, propose and implement complex cross-platform solutions, and become the technical source of expertise for the server team over time.
