About Clinch

Our core mission is to help large and emerging businesses hire smarter, faster.  We do that by building recruitment marketing software that enables our customers to attract, identify, nurture, and hire the best candidates for them. Central to our product offering is a “more intelligent career site” and CRM.

Clinch is proud to serve and delight customers from the worlds of finance, cyber security, athletic apparel, software manufacturing, entertainment, retail and more.

 

What's the role?

We're looking for people to join our growing Product Engineering team. This team is responsible for building and supporting the Clinch platform and associated tools that our customers use to attract and convert candidates.

 

You will be part of a small but growing engineering team where you get to be an influencer and make a difference. We want you to make this role your own.

 

You may be a fit if you like to :

  • Design, code, test, and ship on a daily basis. We move fast to meet the needs of our customers and our sales team.
  • Write clean code. Complicated code is easy to write but simple code is difficult.
  • We critique each other's code and suggest improvements on a daily basis.
  • Test, test, test. At Clinch, we write twice as much test code as production code to ensure a high standard and to facilitate changing business needs.
  • Work in an environment with minimal prescribed process. We don't micromanage, and we require team members to take ownership over features in our platform and get them to production.
  • Make your own estimates, share your updates at a daily standup, and demo your work each week.
  • Share your programming challenges early. At Clinch, we don't go down programming rabbit-holes when faced with a tricky problem. Instead we pause programming, have an informal meeting or whiteboard session and work together to formulate a solution.
  • Work at a sustainable pace using top of the range equipment.
     

Tech talk:

The majority of our platform is a Ruby on Rails web application, using a MySQL database for storage, running on Ubuntu Linux. Our infrastructure runs on AWS. We use MiniTest and Webdriver to test our code. We use Capistrano, and GitLab to deploy our software to production several times a day.

 

Our wish list:

We're looking for someone who can hit the ground running. A full stack Ruby on Rails engineer with a working knowledge of HTML/Javascript, Ruby, Rails, HTTP, databases, and servers would be ideal.

 

However, we know that most candidates will not have expertise across all of these areas. That’s OK! If you have a computer science-related university degree, at least a few years experience shipping web software, and tick most of the boxes but not all, we're willing and happy to teach on the job.

 

Why join Clinch?

We work hard, and we're serious about what we do. That said, we prioritise a good work-life balance, and we like to have a good time. We’re looking for people with a sense of humour, and a willingness to celebrate the wins we work hard to achieve.

 

Our benefits include:

  • Competitive Salary with Annual Pay Review
  • Modern web development equipment including MacBook Pro, Thunderbolt Monitor
  • Flexible working
  • Competitive holidays
  • Taxsaver tickets to help you get to and from work
  • Pension plan
  • Entitlement to participate in the employee stock option plan for a high growth company
  • Great location: Clinch is proud to offer a fun, friendly, and inclusive working environment right in the heart of Dublin’s city centre. We’re close to the Luas and plenty of bus routes, and there is no shortage of great spots nearby for a bite of lunch or a post-work pint. As a resident of WeWork Iveagh Court, Clinch can also offer secure bike storage as well as showers onsite for that all-important post-cycle or post-workout refresh!
