Ruby Software Engineer at Quikly / Detroit Tech Startup

We're glad you found us!

Quikly is a venture-backed tech startup founded in 2012 located in downtown Detroit, MI right on Woodward Avenue. We're growing our team and want you to be part of it. Even if you aren't looking a for a new opportunity quite yet, please get in touch. We'd love to network with as many developers as possible.

We are looking for someone with great Ruby skills. If you are comfortable with Javascript that's a bonus. 

If you...

  • Have experience building web sites with Ruby and Rails
  • Want to be an integral part of a small team, moving comfortably between working in client-side javascript and our server-side ruby on rails application
  • Understand what makes code easy to maintain
  • Are looking to join a start-up based in Detroit

... then you've come to the right place! Let us know how you found us, what you are doing now, what kinds of things you know how to do, and and most importantly what you'd like to be doing. We'd rather see a cool Ruby gem that you've published instead of "Ruby" listed as a bullet point on a resume.


  • Help us build the code that powers our consumer-facing web app, as well as the tools and interfaces for clients and for our own team.
  • Help identify new technologies and techniques that can improve our app, lead code reviews, continually help to improve our development processes and mentor other team members when the time comes to grow the team.
  • Manage your own workflow and your own time


  • Experience building non-trivial web apps in Ruby
  • Comfortable working with Javascript/HTML5/CSS3 ajax skills (React, AngularJS, coffeescript, flexbox)
  • Experience with unit and functional tests (RSpec)
  • Familiarity with git
  • Knowledge of relational databases (we use Postgres)
  • Appreciation for Agile development, continuous integration, and easy to maintain code
  • Strong collaboration and communication skills


  • True startup experience: Small team, no bureaucracy, code you write will have a real impact on the business
  • Camaraderie of a tight-knit team that works hard and is fun to be around
  • Salary and health insurance
  • A focus on learning, team and individual growth, and enjoying what we do
  • Amazing office space in Downtown Detroit with a relaxed vibe

About Us

We are a team of music lovers, retro video-gamers, competitive ping-pong players, outdoor enthusiasts, and technology geeks that have bound together to chalk up a major win in the startup world. We have the resources, talent and results to make it happen. Previous developers on our team have gone on to join the likes of Facebook and Amazon. You will have a major impact on our success and work on an app that millions of people use every month. 

We look forward to hearing from you!
