What would you like to do?

Rails/React developer Mid/Senior

eola are looking for a senior Rails/React dev to start immediately.

As always, we're mainly looking for the right attitude rather than an exact set of experiences.


We're based in a fun, open office in Moorgate, London.


  • High-priority given to testing and code quality
  • Share options in the company
  • Unlimited holiday (within reason!)
  • Activity trips!
  • Conference and learning budget
  • Styleguide
  • Excellent codebase (relatively little is swept under the carpet 😬)
  • 1 day/week working from home

About eola

Firstly, check out 😍

We're not focussing on the marketplace, but rather the B2B software that's the booking system itself. Check out this video for a lil' intro in to the B2B side. Sorry about the video quality, this was my creation 🙈

Ultimately, we're trying to help businesses in the experiential industry come online and grow by increasing revenue and reducing admin.

We try and be very open and transparent at all times. Everyone in the team has pretty much unrestricted access to same information, data and analysis that the founders have. We want to try and build the company with happy employees, and I think I'm fairly safe in saying that so far it's going pretty damn well!

Our Stack

Our stack is wonderfully simple. No shenanigans.

  • Rails 6
  • React/Apollo
  • RSpec/Jest
  • SQL (used directly a decent amount for some advanced queries)
  • Heroku

The Role

We're looking for a self-starter that shares our values when it comes to code; high-quality and robust. You'll be working closely with everyone in our team, which currently features a CTO (backend), frontend/UI/UX dev and Rails/React dev, as well as our CEO.

We have clear goals, but will take a hands-off approach on the day-to-day stuff; we're looking for someone we can trust to deliver great stuff reliably. That being said, if you need any help, we can sit down together and pair up. Whatever produces the best results! 😌

Being hire number 4 in the tech team, you'd obviously have a clear growth trajectory; growing with us as the team grows. On that note, we're about to close a large seed round.

Initially I imagine it'd be somewhere around 70% Rails initially, with 30% on React, and that ratio slowly swapping over time. We already have projects in mind for you to work on and depending on your interests and expertise, we'll try and allocate features in the way that makes the most sense.

The team

Essential skills

  • Happy with everything in a 'normal' Rails ecosystem
  • Happy working with React
  • TDD
  • Good communication skills


  • Experience with Graphql
  • Experience with Apollo
  • Particularly good at SQL
  • Can use a shaka 🤙 unironically (I definitely can't)

Interested? Ping me on

Interesting to see the codecov metric added in a job description that puts emphasis on testing and code quality :-)

Clicking on the codecov logo yields a 404, probably correctly so, because it contains internal information, but it might be better to remove that clickable link then ? (To be clear, I am talking about

Haha glad it had the effect I wanted. I've updated as you suggested 😄
