Berlin: Ruby on Rails Developer

Meltwater’s Self-Service Applications team is responsible for developing applications for the management of media contacts and outlets, and also building Apps and APIs that expose that data to a broader audience. These services are part of our PR Solutions, more specifically of the tools we offer for managing Media Relations.

We are looking to extend this team with a Ruby on Rails Developer. You will be tasked to extend existing Apps and APIs but also build new Apps for both internal and external consumption.
