About the job

Ritual is a direct-to-consumer health brand that believes it’s crucial to know not just what you’re putting into your body, but why you need it in the first place. We’re transparent about our ingredients, where they're sourced from, and have spent years conducting extensive research behind each of the premium nutrient forms we use. Our products are simple, effective, and backed by science. Our mission is simple: to empower people to feel their best by turning healthy habits into a ritual.
We have built a team of curious skeptics, world-class scientists, unconventional artists, expert marketers and analytical strategists that are on a mission to reinvent an entire industry. We’re well-funded, growing quickly, and committed to our mission. If you’re a team player who refuses to settle for the status quo, we want you. Welcome to your new daily Ritual.
Ritual is based in sunny Los Angeles, but will be working remotely until the global health situation improves.
When it comes to web development, nothing stands in your way because you have all the tools for success on front-end, back-end, and all the pipes in between. This includes short and mid-term projects that will immediately move key company metrics as well as lay the technical foundation for long-term success. This is an exciting opportunity and a critical role for a very fast-growing brand. We believe that great digital experiences are an important part of any company’s success, and we think you'll agree. As a subscription service, we help our customers better invest in the products they’ve subscribed to, by reinforcing the habits that help them in their long-term mission. You’ll be a part of a strong digital product team of designers, product managers, and data analysts to continuously add to and improve our customers’ experiences online at scale.
What You’ll Do
Help lead the design, architecture, and execution of everything from front to back.
Establish engineering processes, define company engineering standards, identify and implement core technologies, and remove technical hurdles.
Work directly with our other Engineers, Designers, Product, and Marketing teams to implement core features across our customers’ experiences.
Build solutions for appropriate scalability. You're ok building something "hacky" if it fits the need, but can also call out real issues and create simple, scalable solutions for them.
What You’ll Use
Our homepage (marketing pages) use React, Gatsby, GraphQL, and Contentful headless CMS.
Our checkout + account experiences use Ember, JSONAPI, and work directly with our Rails API.
Our back-end is a Rails API that handles everything from account creation, payments, all the way through to fulfillment.
