Full Stack Ruby on Rails Developer

London, England, United Kingdom · Tech


We are looking for a Ruby on Rails developer to improve our small agile product team. You will be an integral part of building projects and products at Florence, and will be working closely together with designers and other developers on a daily basis.

Expectations & Responsibilities


How we work

At Florence the product team works to two week sprints and splits up into 2-3 person multi-disciplinary pods to complete project briefs.

Project briefs are very high level and mostly cover things like how much time the project is allowed to take, what not to do, possible rabbit holes to avoid, and it also includes some high level breadboards and rough sketches for clarification.

Project briefs do not include technical instructions, wireframes or anything else that detracts from your creativity or domain knowledge. You are expected to operate within the boundaries of a project brief with full creative control.

What to expect

Most of your days would be spent working closely with your team to build scopes, work on tasks and figure out product solutions based on the project briefs. We use Zeplin for design asset handovers and Basecamp for project management, but outside of those platforms you can use whatever tools you want to get the job done.

To give you some real-world examples of what life is like at Florence, here are some projects we have worked on lately:


Florence is a user-first and data-driven tech startup. Our user base presents unique challenges and the product team is structured in a way that respects the skills of the talented people working here.

Why should you join Florence?

We have an amazing work/life balance with flexible hours and the ability to work from home if needed. You’ll get a brand new laptop, a competitive salary and all the benefits of working at a super central WeWork building (free coffee, events, and so on). Our small product team is agile and highly skilled - we’re all very good at what we’re doing, and we trust each others’ opinions in our respective fields.
