Sittercity’s mission is to make child care finally work. We pioneered tech enabled child care in 2001, and we connect millions of parents with babysitters and nannies every year. Recently recognized as a 2018 Chicago Innovation Award winner, we are building a platform that is radically simplifying the way we find, book and pay for trusted care. Headquartered in Chicago, we serve families and caregivers nationwide.
How we work:
We operate in cross functional teams that focus on delivering user value in small increments each sprint. We believe strongly in collaboration across all levels of our teams during each sprint iteration. Tests are a fundamental part of our development cycle. We practice Test-Driven Development. We release frequently with an established continuous integration stack. Developers are responsible for coding, testing, releasing to production, and monitoring their releases. We encourage open and respectful feedback.
What You’ll Do
On any given sprint you will work with Product Owners to understand requirements, collaborate with mobile and platform developers to make architecture decisions, specify API schemas, write code, open PRs, address comments or concerns from reviewers, obtain sign off from Product Owners, merge and release your work, monitor logs and metrics, celebrate, and reflect on what worked and what didn’t during the previous iteration. Our current tech stack includes Ruby, Rails, Golang, GraphQL, Postgres and Vue.js and is constantly evolving as we learn and grow. You don’t need to know all these technologies but you should be excited and willing to learn!
Sittercity is committed to hiring a diverse workforce. We consider all applicants for employment without regard to race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, national origin, disability, veteran status, or any other basis as prohibited by federal, state or local law.
