Backend Engineer - Professional Services

| Greater Denver Area | Remote
Two solutions, one goal: make work simpler, with better data for leaders. FORM.com, a global leader in mobile data collection, and GoSpotCheck, the leading provider of mobile task management and image recognition software, are the top low-code/no-code platforms enabling digital process automation for mid-size and large enterprise customers globally.
FORM.com was established in 2001 and is based in Braintree, MA with offices in Chicago, Boston, London, and Kyiv. GoSpotCheck was established in 2011 and is based in Denver, CO. Diversis Capital acquired and merged the FORM.com and GoSpotCheck platforms and teams in 2020 to further enable digital process automation and deliver business value for customers, supported by a team of 300.
Together, these solutions enable digital business processes across functions in Consumer Goods, Retail, Restaurant & Hospitality, Facilities & Property, Health Sciences, and Natural Resources.

What You'll Do

  • GoSpotCheck has a very powerful out-of-the-box product, but as a Backend Engineer on our Professional Services team, you’ll build customized solutions for some of our biggest customers. You’ll collaborate with both internal and external stakeholders, leveraging your domain expertise to create seamless integrations and valuable deliverables.

What We'll Achieve

  • Our customers will pull and push complex data from the GoSpotCheck platform with ease, thanks to your solid engineering efforts.
  • The automated processes you create for our stakeholders, both internal teams and external customers will save them countless hours they used to spend aggregating their data.
  • Our customers will gain robust, accurate, and timely reporting capabilities to help them better understand their operations and take action.
  • We’ll continue to build on our strong customer relationships as we deliver their solutions on time and within scope.
  • We’ll bridge the gap from Commercial to Product Teams, engineering-specific revenue-generating solutions such as customized report views, triggered emails, data digestion/reporting, and data ingestion/tables.
  • We’ll move from a highly customized set of solutions towards a more clearly defined set of configurable solutions.

Daily Responsibilities

  • Working closely with a Project Manager to understand the requirements of your stories and how they impact our customers' ROI.
  • Constant communication with Quality Assurance to ensure that your code covers all of the edge cases that might be lurking in the shadows.
  • Leveraging test-driven development practices as you write and maintain applications in Ruby.
  • Using Slack and Asana to keep your fellow teammates informed on your story progress and to identify any roadblocks that stand between you and a successful release.

Who You Are

  • You have at least 1-2 years' experience working on a data-driven, Ruby on Rails stack, preferably on a data-focused SaaS product.
  • You have advanced on-the-job experience in Ruby on Rails development, and bonus points if you’ve worked with Go/Golang. 
  • Preferably, you have worked with PostgreSQL for data manipulation and Kafka or a similar eventing system.
  • You get your kicks from solving problems, delivering on-time, and innovating reusable solutions.
  • You maintain good engineering practices and encourage others to do the same.
  • You can take complex problems and break them down into smaller, bite-sized issues.
  • You strive for excellence. Being good enough isn’t good enough for you!
  • You have worked in a fast-paced team environment or in a consulting role, and know how to be resourceful to get things done.
  • You are a team player, you enjoy being around your peers, you are willing to wear multiple hats (e.g., developer and tester), and see the value of working in a pair programming environment.
  • Preferably, you earned a Bachelor’s degree in CS or completed a coding school program that had a focus on back-end engineering.
  • You appreciate and align with our company values.

Who We Are
We are innovators: We’re here to free mobile workers from the mundane and open up new worlds of possibility and prosperity, powered by the people.
We are partners: We’re only as successful as our customers. We provide exceptional support, strategic partnership, and personalized account management to ensure they’re successful.
We are problem-solvers: We believe business will help solve the complex challenges facing our planet today. We build products centered on helping them succeed so they can do just that.

Humble + hungry. We measure success by how we help customers win. And we've been in the game a long time (in software years). Every interaction gives us the chance to deliver better service and more value. Along the way we've picked up a few awards, and for that, we're thankful.

An Insider's view of GoSpotCheck

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It’s friendly and familial. The people genuinely appreciate each other, and there’s always a friend found in every corner. It’s relaxed, casual, and comfortable.

Julie

Senior Accountant

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

On our Image Recognition team, we tackle all sorts of hard problems in the computer vision space. I'm allowed to be creative about how we meet our goals. This is very important in R&D since our concept of completion can be fuzzy. The process of discovery often leads us to rapidly change our perspective on how best to solve our business needs!

Mackinley

Senior Software Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Everyone is so smart, so friendly, and has such a strong work effort, that it’s motivated me to level up in all areas of my life! I’m more technical, have more business savvy, and I’m a generally more rounded person than I was 3 years ago.

Myranda

Technical Support Analyst

What is your vision for the company?

We exist to reimagine how the workforce works. We believe there is a tremendous opportunity to make work less cumbersome and more fulfilling, so we strive to build software that is delightful and empowering for users to complete their everyday tasks. Further, our goal is to be the top workplace in Denver, made up of the best and brightest talent!

Matt

Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

On the Product team, we are exceptionally focused on the user at the other end of the code we write. When we get together for our grooming ceremonies, you'll hear us throw around the first names of our beloved personas like they are old friends, not a faceless customer. It keeps us grounded in the idea we are writing software that people are using!
