SPYSCAPE is a totally new kind of edutainment and media company. We aim to educate and entertain people as we inspire them to see the world and their own potential more clearly. Our first major product, an interactive museum in Manhattan, gains 4.5 reviews equalling traditional spaces like the MOMA and Met Museums.

We're looking for Senior Engineers in both Ruby and JavaScript to work on our digital products, as well as supporting our existing apps and games in our flagship Museum in New York City.

Our technology varies depending on the problem we're solving. But normally we use React, ES6, Rails, C++, MQTT, Contentful as CMS, a lot AWS including Lambda, Kinesis, & IOT. We have a very strong DevOps and testing culture.

What we're looking for

We're looking for people who are adaptable, and not afraid of trying technologies out of their comfort zone. One of the following will resonate with you...:

  • Deep experience working with vanilla JS as well as modern frameworks like React.
  • Deep experience in Ruby either in Rails applications, DevOps automation, or pure ruby applications.
  • Event-driven architectures, or serverless architectures.

  • Having to learn a new language to get the job done.
  • Ability to proactively investigate issues, and refactor when the current task requires it.
  • Communicating and discussing alternative solutions with the CTO, Product Managers, to improve the overall architecture of SPYSCAPE.
