Pay level: Negotiable
Cru has a long standing history of being a pioneer in world Christian Missions. We are looking for the most talented individuals with a passion and burning desire to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ proclaimed to the nations. At Cru, our Digital Products and Services department creates and innovates technology solutions for the global Church that help to make disciples. We call it Digital Missions.
Who we’re looking For:
We’re looking for a Rails developer who eats, breathes and sleeps server side development. Have you ever filled your weekend with building a REST API, writing some backend business logic, just because? Do you figure out Rails MVC implementation solutions on long walks and then race back home to prototype them? But maybe that’s not enough. You want more. You want to see your prototypes come to life and make a difference in this world. But maybe that too isn’t enough. You want to be a difference maker for the sake of the Gospel and help make Jesus known to the ends of the earth.

You’ll be working directly with our Web development team. The Web team is responsible for implementing back end solutions for Cru’s front end (web and mobile) applications.

- Support the entire application lifecycle (concept, design, test, release and support)
