Experienced Back-end (Ruby on) Rails Developer

Job description

Here at Goboony we share a passion for the outdoors, the boonies, as we like to call it.  A place where you truly can be yourself and explore the world.  Goboony is a fast growing scale up company in the sharing economy, rapidly growing into European countries. We are extending our international team with people that can build on our dream.
